Triple Layer Blossom--no calories

Triple Layer should be followed by something decadent and likely chocolate, but this is a great calorie free version! Stampin' Up! has released a new style punch in the Summer Mini catalog, which allows 3 (or more) separate images to be punched from the same punch! How's that for bang-for-your-buck???

We made this 3x6 card at Club Tuesday night and used the Triple Layer Blossom Bouquet Punch (page 6) to create the flowers. These punches are very easy to use! And of course, I had to sneak in the adorable kitty from Touch of Kindness (page 25). We stamped him in Black Craft ink and then used clear embossing powder. That's my trick to keep from watercoloring like I'm in second grade. We used the Brights Watercolor Wonder Crayons (my favorite!!) to color him in. The stem stamp is also from Touch of Kindness, and the grass is sketched in with the Pear Pizzazz marker.
