Pleased as Punch for Spring

Happy Monday all and here’s to a Beautiful You.  Today I’m inking up my Beautiful You stamp set from the Annual Catalog for the first time.  I know, hard to believe isn’t it.  I’m also pairing it with my new favorite Designer Series Paper, Please as Punch.  This paper is only available now through March 31, 2020, as one of the coordination products.

You can tell just from this one card that I am so ready for Spring.  We haven’t had a horrible winter here in Central Ohio, not like some areas of the country, but I miss the sunshine and am looking forward to spring flowers.

The colors on one side of the DSP are these pretty pastel stripes, perfect for spring. There is a reason this DSP is part of the coordination product release.  It coordinates with 4, yes 4, of the available Stampin Up Punches. The Small Bloom punch is currently free with a qualifying purchase of $100 and there is a stamp set that it coordinates with as well, also free with another $50 qualifying purchase.  Be your own host and combine the two to get $15 in free money to spend on  your next shopping list item.

One side of each sheet of the Pleased as Punch DSP works with one of these punches.  That makes it so easy to create cards in a flash.  Like mine above.  I used the umbrella builder punch to create a layer over my stamp.

About Lynn

Thanks for visiting my Site. My name is Lynn Kolcun and I'm a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love being creative with paper and ink, learning new techniques and sharing my craft with you.


  1. I LOVE this, Lynn! I was so sad to see this project come through my email because I thought about pairing this umbrella with this image, but then I let it slip from my mind. You beat me to the punch on this wonderful idea. Love it so very much! ♥

  2. Great way to combine this set and punch…very seasonal! And it’s really quite a simple design, that’s what makes it even better! (Easy to demonstrate!!) Thank you for playing with my sketch this week at the Paper Players!
