Getting The Most Out of A Punch

These days it is very important to me when purchasing craft supplies that I get good bang for my buck.  I used to be an impulse buyer but these days I try to consider a purchase before I make it.  It doesn't just come down to how much I will use an item but is also about how long the item may last and how much work it can endure.  Quality is just as important to me.  One of my addictions for quite sometime (years !) has been Stampin' Up Punches.  They are such good quality and give you the best punch out !  Now when a matching punch is released with a stamp set then for me that is awesome value for money.  I can stamp my images and then with no fuss punch them out.

Then add in the fact that the subject matter is one of my favourite things and then well .......  I'm totally sold !  I purchased this stamp set when it was first released and I have used and used and used it !  I make cards for cat welfare groups to on sell and so this set was just a MUST BUY.  The punch is $31 and the Stamp Set $28.  So for $59 I have made literally 100's of cards !  And they are still both in perfect working condition !  That to me is TOTAL value for money !

You can purchase them HERE.

So today I have made a simple little card using some gorgeous subtle designer series paper from the 6 X 6 pack of 40 sheets and teamed it with the punch.  You could literally pump 20 of these out in no time flat!

The instructional video is on my YOU TUBE channel and the measurements that you will require are below.

I also put together a list of products used which is HERE.

I'll be back tomorrow with another Nine Lives project.
