Borders and Corner Punches

Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of card stock that has been punched over a coordinating card stock for a reverse effect.

Stampin' Up has added eight new punches to its already great lineup of punches.  These new, sleek punches have a large cutting surface and offer better punching leverage and cutting precision, and the sleeker body makes them easier to store.If you haven't seen them yet, check them out in the new Mini Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catties.  

1. 117191 Extra Large Two-Step Bird $22.95
2. 118073 Extra Large Fancy Flower $22.95
3. 117649 Pinking Hearts Border $22.95
4. 118072 Pinking Hearts Corner $13.95

6. 117190 Medium Jewelry Tag $15.95

Two of the new border punches also have matching corner punches to offer you even more versatility in your stamping creations.    These are the Pinking Hearts Border and Corner Punches (Mini Occasions) and the Scallop Trim Border (Sale-A-Bration). 

Because the addition of corner punching is a whole new concept in punching, there are some tricks you need to learn.  Check out this great video on using the Border and Corner Punches to make your punching experience even better. Video Tutorial click here.  And to assist you even more check out this great tutorial I found by Gretchen Barron.  Gretchen's tutorial called "A Guide for Cutting Squares and Rectangles with the Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punches" will take the mystery out of sizing your squares and rectangles.
