Note Tag Punch Trick -Part 2

So, today I am back with a couple more cards to share using the Note Tag Punch Trick. I am excited to show you these cards, since they are both very nice ideas to highlight this great trick.

Note Tag punch trick3This card has a very nice clean look and I love the combination of the English Garden Designer Paper (#138440, p.142 AC) and the Flower Patch stamp set (#134207, p.76 AC). I started with a Whisper White card base and layered a piece of the White Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper (#138439, p.142 AC). This adds a little bit of shine from the DSP.

I added a 3-1/2″ square layer of Melon Mambo cardstock and layered the English Garden DSP cut to a 3-1/4″ square. I made the window using the Note Tag Punch Trick (see directions on the previous post: HERE). I attached the DSP with stampin’ dimensionals to pop it off the card and then added the “hello” cut with the Greeting Thinlits (#138275, p.172 AC) from Early Espresso cardstock. Finally, I used the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating Flower Fair Framelits (#133731, p.172 AC) to create the flowers, and I attached them with stampin’ dimensionals.

Note Tag punch trick4This card has a little different window opening, but it was created the same way with the Note Tag Punch, and has been punch 4 times instead of just 2. So, after punching the two openings (as in the other post), just turn the 3-1/4″ square to repeat those 2 steps again from the opposite sides. This creates a little bit larger opening with a rounded scallop on all 4 sides.  This gives you yet ANOTHER way to use that Note Tag Punch!

I CASED this card from Claire Daly. I really liked her color scheme and choice of stamp set, so I used that idea and applied it to my Note Tag Window Punch card. I started with an Elegant Eggplant card base, and stamped the small flower cluster image from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set (#139167, p.8 AC) in Elegant Eggplant ink to create the background images. Next, I added a 3-1/2″ square of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped a few more clusters of flowers onto that. Then I layered a 3-1/4″ square of Crumb Cake cardstock which was punched to create the window opening. I added more clusters of flowers to that piece too. Then I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment within the opening.

Finally, I added some more flower images to the card front from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set. I stamped them with Stazon Ink and used a blender pen and ink to watercolor the images. I cut them out with paper snips and added them to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.
