DeNami Challenge -- Punches

The Challenge on the DeNami blog is to use punches..... easy!  I love using punches, circles, scallops, borders oh my!   When I worked at the stamp show a few months back I remembered seeing some cute ornaments that Nami had made.  So, I tried to recreate some for my tree.
I used the pretty and versatile Leafy Vine Wreath.  Stamped and Embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I punched it out using the purple marvy punch and folded it in half.  Then I used the yellow marvy punch to punch out the center.  I did this 8 times and used my ATG gun to hold the layers together.  On my last layer I sandwiched in some ribbon and I was done.  Very inexpensive little gift to give, or put on top of a gift.   If you would like to participate in the challenge, you just need to use a punch and a DeNami Stamp --- $25 DeNami Gift Certificate to the lucky winner!!

  4. Wendy these are beautiful and a lot of love went into creating these! Thanks for sharing your talent and inspiring!

  5. I liked your idea so much that I tried it at home. I could not get my yellow punch to punch through the folded card stock. Is there a trick? Someone once told me to sharpen the punches using tin foil.
