Butterfly Punch Pansy

I have been wanting to try making one of these pansies for quite a while now and finally got the chance the other day.  I was not too happy with the results to start with, but once I fastened them together with a gorgeous rhinestone brad, added leaves etc it ended up looking quite nice.  The colours I used for the pansy were Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

I 'drew' veins in all the leaves, including the tiny ones from the bird punch using the bone folder, popped up the pansy and sentiment on Dimensionals, rounded a few corners off, and sponged most of the edges to soften it all a little.

What I used:

Card:  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Whisper White

Ink:  Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight.

Stamp Sets:  Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Tools and other fun stuff:  Butterfly punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Bird punch, corner rounder punch, Stampin' sponges, bone folder, Fire Rhinestone Brad.


  1. Very nice. Love that pansy technique.

  2. how cool is that...i think i need that punch now
