Technique Tuesday Blog Hop - Punches

Today I'm hopping with Stamping Demonstrators from around the world sharing "punch technique" cards. When I saw this little card in the Curved Occasions Bundle and the curved punch I immediately thought of a spinner card.  

Check out this fun spinner card in Pool Party.  Looks like a retro VW Bug Convertible to me.  I had to go digging through my change for some US pennies.  We don't have pennies anymore in Canada, but I had some in my change from a recent trip for Stampin' Up! BackStage.  If you don't have pennies, you can use washers or even stacked Thick cardstock to create the spinner.

Isn't this fun!  Watch the video in the link below to see the movement!


  1. Cut Early Espresso cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder to form card base.
  2. Cut Pool Party cardstock 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  3. Punch the curve on one side and then turn the cardstock 180 degrees and punch again with the ends lined up - this creates the "s" swoop.
  4. Emboss using Raindrop Embossing folder
  5. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals
  6. Get 2 pennies or 2 washers or 2 stacks of thick cardstock cut in small circles.
  7. Put one through the opening made by the punch
  8. Adhere 2 stacked Dimensionals on Penny/Washer/Cardstock
  9. Adhere second penny/washer/cardstock on top
  10. Stamp card on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  11. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate
  12. Cut out using Paper Snips
  13. Adhere to the Penny/Washer/Cardstock using a Dimensional
  14. Stamp sentiment on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  15. Punch out using curve punch
  16. Adhere to cardbase using Dimensionals
  17. Adhere Glitter Sequins
  18. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  19. Stamp card in bottom right corner
  20. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate
  21. Adhere to the inside of the card.
