Recently I had a customer ask about using Stampin’ Up punches. Here are some Tips and Tricks Punch It style. Take a look at our Clearance Rack and you will see one of the most fun punches Stampin’ Up has ever had. Our Little Fox Builder. 141470. At $10.80 I do hope you are not missing this deal. Just look at all the cute little animals you can make with this punch.
As this punch as been discounted let’s look at another fun punch. The Snowman Builder Punch (150643). Now I know we are coming into spring, but he is just so cute. Let’s play in the snow one more time.
Keep in mind this trick can be used for all of Stampin Up’s builder punches, which are the ones with multiple cutouts.
First, get a scrap piece of paper and punch through it using the snowman builder punch.
Next, lay the stamps on top of the punched cardstock, being careful to center the stamps in the openings. Make sure the side that will adhere to the acrylic block is face up. (of note: when placing the stamps in the opening, be sure you have the arms correct. This is a watch point for the Snowman Builder Punch only) Now just lay your clear block on top. You are now ready to stamp.
If you’re going to do any coloring, I suggest doing it now. Then after you’re done coloring, line up the stamped images with the punch, and punch them out!
You will find this technique so much easier than trying to punch out the arms, then the hat. OOHH. Not to mention the time you will save. I like to cal this my “punch fun”.
I hope you have learn a little something from my Tips and Tricks Punch it post. If so please share it on your Facebook Page.
