New ideas? Very Versatile!

While I was away on the weekend ........playing with my new toys.....I realized how versatile the new corner punches actually are....
Below you see two borders created from only the Scallop Trim and Pinking Hearts corner punches. I did this by pushing the paper to the back of the punch and punching. Turn the punch over and continue using the pattern on the bottom of the punch.

Next : for the Scallop Trim punch I moved the paper along the back of the punch until I could see just the tip of the last triangular cut out and then trying to keep the paper straight I punched again and continued until I got to the end.

: for the Pinking Hearts punch I moved the paper along and aligned the last two hearts and pinked points of the first punch with the same that were on the punch itself then punched. Continue along to create your border.

A closer view of the two borders.

This is a card I made from the Welcome Neighbour DSP paper pack in the SAB catalogue, the Extra large two step bird punch, new Small Heart punch, the smallest heart from the heart to heart punch and a border from the Pinking Heart Corner Punch.

This card again uses the paper from the Welcome Neighbour DSP pack, the extra large two step bird punch, the small heart punch, the wing and the small hearts were punched from a wheeled image with very vintage wheel that wasn't good enough to use for a card so I recycled it and used it here.
I appologise that I don't always explain things very clearly but I'm sure if you play with them you will see what I'm talking about.
I haven't seen anyone else doing anything like this so hopefully someone will try it and be able to explain it better than I have.
I love love love how versatile these punches are. You just need to play with them and you'll be amazed!
Thanks for looking!
