Base card is Poppy Parade cardstock, and the flowery DSP at the bottom is also from the FREE Everyday Enchantment DSP pack.

Mixed Bunch flower tip

FREE GOODIES!!  It's SALE A BRATION TIME!

---------------------

Mixed bunch flowers 2When I was making my Stampin' Up! Leadership Swap cards last January, I came across a tip that helped speed up my card making process AND made it easier too!!!!

FIRST: I stamped a sheet of flower centers from the Mixed Bunch set and then placed it on my mat and poked a hole in the center of each one with my paper piercer:

Mixed bunch holes

And then I punched out each flower center with the circle punch:

Mixed bunch punch

and then added the Designer Printed brads:

Mixed bunch centers
That was so much faster than punching them all out and then poking the holes in each little circle .... it may not seem like a huge time saving tip, but it was so much less frustrating to do it this way when stamping a lot of swaps!

Mixed bunch flowers

I love the Mixed Bunch set.. I especially love that I can punch out the stamped flowers with the matching Blossom Punch.. whohoo!
