PUNCH ART GINGERBREAD MAN...

Hi everyone and welcome to my very first blog - Creative Craft Fusions!!! I am passionate about two things in my life - my family and my craft. It's funny how the two things that I love the most, have now become entwined.

As a "newbie" Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I love to inspire, create and share with others. My favourite paper craft is definitely punch art. I have been "punching" for about 10 years . But I have found that Stampin' Up! has excellent user-friendly punches that can be used much more than in conjunction with your stamps!

So as well as many other ideas, you will see many more punched creations on my blog. Some even inspired by other fellow bloggers.

I can't believe it is the middle of October already and many many blogs are splashed with Christmas ideas...So.. here is one of my cards that I have made - my gingerbread man. The peppermint candy was cased , but I honestly can't remember where I saw it!

Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of my first blog "release".

PUNCHES USED:

1 3/8" CIRCLE; WIDE OVAL; FULL HEART; HEART TO HEART; SMALL OVAL; LARGE OVAL; SCALLOP EDGE; BOHO BLOSSOMS; 1"CIRCLE PUNCH; HORIZONTAL SLOT ; 1/8" CIRCLE (CROP-A-DILE )

Welcome! Your site is adorable! Great job! Love your card, too. Punch art is one of my favs (although I haven't been posting it for some reason) and always a hit at classes. Congrats! :)

Very cute Gingerbread man. One of my hostess club members asked me about making a gingerbread man this past weekend. My first thought was ask Ellen (Blinkin, Thinkin, Inkin) and she referred me to your blog. Perfect timing for me and he is so cute. I love the soldier as well. Keep up the good work and welcome to Stampin Up! I just became a demonstrator this year myself.

Take care, Lora Lee
