Vintage Labels Stamp-a-Stack

This set is of this month's Stamp-a-Stack designs. I've used my favourite paper for masculine cards - Windsor Knot, and kept to Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip for the colour combo. To make this set of cards all you need is one stamp set (and it's FREE - Vintage Labels Sale-a-Bration set), one inkpad (Chocolate Chip) and some patterned paper...and just a few punches! I've jazzed the cards up with some wide Chocolate double-stitched ribbon and some of the little Clips. There's a mini bulldog clip, and 2 different types of paperclips in the Assortment. You get 24 in a pack, and they're great to add a little something extra, especially on masculine cards.

Here's a Quick Question for you (those who have attended my class are not allowed to give it away!). Can you tell me what punch I used the make the little "Happy Birthday" in the card on the left, and how I did it?
I still have a couple of spots in my last class for the month next Tuesday night. Email me if you'd like to come along!


  1. Hi Marelle,

    What a lovely set of cards! I have just become a demo and I have to say you are my #1 inspiration - keep up the fabulous work (I know you will!)

    Now as for your little question... firstly I would have thought you used the designer label punch and trimmed off the curvy bits, but it would be too big - so my guess is you've used the small oval punch and then trimmed the "corners" with the 1/2" circle punch???


  2. I reckon you've cut a rectangle then use a small circle punch to clip the corners. The cards look great!

  3. Hi Marelle, i love this stamp a stack! gorgeous colours. classic and simple.
    Hm.. re your question, I think you have taken a rectangular piece of cardstock with the sentiment stamped on then used a small circle (say 1/2" of 3/4") and punched a 1/4 circle segment from each corner?

  4. OK, changed my mind, lol, I NOW reckon yoy may have punched out a designer label and then fed it back into the punch from the bottom and punched again to get the right shape.

  5. I thinks it's the curly Label Punch...if I were to guess. asically I love all the cards you have done Marelle. They are beautiful.
