YAY - using Stampin' Up's Chevron punch!

I really love having a Stampin' Up team and get a great deal of pleasure out of helping my downline to get the most out of being part of Stampin' Up, in whatever way they choose for that to be. New members are always made to feel welcome in my group - and now is a particularly good time to try it out as it's only £25 for the starter kit to join until 21st October! If you'd like to join my group, or would like more info, click here.

Today's card was made for one lovely lady in my team to celebrate overcoming a minor problem. Come and see:

I don't often make cards with no stamping at all - but this is one of them! There's a bit of interest in the card base with the contrast between smooth and textured card stock, and the aperture, and then it's full on colour all the way!

Oh look at those chevrons in glorious Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo - I can't wait to get more time to play with this fabulous punch!

And the sentiment? Well that's been made from the Expressions thinlits - you can make loads of different sentiments out of these three words using your sharp paper snips to cut the letters apart, and they have a lot of impact!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: None!
Ink: None!
Card stock: Very Vanilla in smooth and Core'dinations, Calypso Coral, scraps of Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo smooth
Other: Ovals framelits, Expressions thinlits, Big Shot, Chevron punch, paper snips

What an action-packed weekend it's been! I've just got back from more uni tours with my daughter and while it's been fantastic fun, I really could do with a nice few days nodding off on the sofa with a blanket over my knees... However, there's no rest for the wicked they say, so I'll be back tomorrow!


  1. I was wondering if you got different words in your thinlets......but then I realized it was just your creativity bubbling to the surface once again! Amazing!

  2. Vicky your card is brilliant - I love it.

  3. Lovely CAS card these colours together


  4. Fantastic card and even better IRL! Thank you for sorting out my problem!

  5. Love this bright and funky card, Vicky - yay!
    So sorry I couldn't meet up with you and your daughter yesterday, but I was up to my eyes in chores, boo... Hope you enjoyed your whistle stop tour of Sheffield. xxx

  6. Clever you with your paper snips. :-) I love how you expanded the usefulness of the thinlits! --Doris
