Packing a (new) punch

Another fun image from the Animal Stories stamp set – this time a rather haughty-looking giraffe. He’s stamped in Really Rust on Very Vanilla and popped up to add dimension. The paper is from the Spiced Cider collection, which has survived from the last catalogue, and I’ve doodled around the edges with a Chocolate Chip marker. This is a bit daunting but took me about 10 seconds – I just went for it, and quite like how it turned out.

Oh, and what’s that cute little tab with the words stamped on it? Could it be... a new punch? It could indeed – it’s the much sought-after Word Window Punch and it fits the Basic Phrases stamp set (and others) a treat. It’s rounded at both ends, I’ve just folded one end round the edge of my layer.
