"She believed she could...so she did"

Happy Saturday Peeps!

I'm beyond excited about this post and especially the card I'm sharing today.  By now you know how much I love finding new ways to use and create with tools that may not have been "made" for a certain purpose like punches and framelits.  Punch Art has turned into a passion for me and I love it SO much.  I love looking at them and thinking outside the box (or punch as it were) to find new "life" in them.  Whether it's one of my "critters" or another fun design like on today's card, it's just so exciting for me when it all comes together.

Before I show it to you, though, I want to let you know about a fun, new adventure I'm starting here on my blog.  It's called "Suitably Punched".  Each week I will be creating with my favorite punch or framelit set of the week.  I'll be posting the project here on my blog and sharing it on the Suitably Stamped Facebook Page and Pinterest as well.  Once it's posted I will be offering a FREE Color Tutorial for the punch art when you purchase the punch/framelit of the week through me. Your tutorial will be emailed to you as a pdf attachment for you to use as your recreate the fun.
 Already own the punch/framelit of the week? No worries, you can purchase the tutorial for each project separately. Tutorial price will be based on the complexity of the project. The tutorial for today's project is available for purchase for $6.95. I'll have all the ordering info here for you with each project so it will be a quick and easy process for you and you'll be able to get started right away. 
Sound fun?  I think so!

Alrighty....Here's the very first 
"Suitably Punched" Design....
It's simply magical.  I hope you like it!

I'm absolutely in LOVE with this design!   When I finished it last night I just kept staring at the card and smiling like a fool!  I woke up this morning and couldn't wait to share it with all of YOU!

So....this week's pick for "Punch/Framelit" of the Week is........
DRESS UP FRAMELITS   ITEM #130101   Price:  $24.95

I will let you in on a little secret....I already have sketches for several other projects using this adorable set of framelits and I'm just itching to start creating them.

Ok....  If you'd like a FREE, step by step, color tutorial on how to create Cinderella's dress and the sweet, little birds too....just go to my Online Shop by clicking the shopping cart in the upper right section here on the blog.  You'll find them in the "Spring Catalog".  FYI....there's a stinkin' cute coordinating stamp set to go with them too!  Order both in a bundle for double the fun! 

Here's a peek at the stamp set....
DRESS UP STAMP SET - ITEM #129174  -  Price $16.95
Ok....we are off on a fun family adventure today.  I'd love to hear from you!  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
And remember.... 
The right pair of shoes can change your life....
Just ask Cinderella!

Wishing you a magical day,

  5. Michelle, your creation is gorgeous! You are so talented and I'm sure you'll have huge success with your punch art program.

  6. Michelle, I absolutely adore your gorgeous creation. Just the thing I am looking for to go in a wall hanging for my granddaughter. I would love to purchase your tutorial, could you let me know how. krismac8@bigpond.com

    1. Kris, Did you see that the tutorial is now for sale? It's on the next blog post that follows this one. :-)

  7. As a demonstrator I love learning how to use our products in new & fun ways! This punch art is going to be a new favorite, Im sure!! Can't wait for you to make the tutorial available!!

  8. Wow this is fabulous, I love this card. I am also a demonstrator in New Zealand and would love to purchase the tutorial.

  9. It looks like a great tutorial. Thankfully stampin up is available now in the netherlands, so although i cannot purchase the materials from you, I know where to get them. I hope the tutorial only will also be available for purchase outside of the USA. Such a happy combination: stampin up and disney :-)

    1. The tutorial is now available. Check out the blog post after this one. :-)

  10. Oh my goodness, Michelle! This little card is SOOOOO gorgeous!! I am in AWE!! I was waiting to see if you commented on my post on the Stampin Connection with all the Disney Princess dresses I created with this very same awesome framelit set!! I would VERY much like to get your tutorial, but I already own the bundle. Is there any way to purchase the tutorial instead? Please let me know at jbhartie@sympatico.ca. Again, I LOVE this card and I know a little someone who would just go wild if I made it for her! Thanks Michlle! You rock!!

  11. OMG! Jackie...I haven't seen yours! I'm going to SC now to find them. I'm so glad you like mine. The tutorial will be for sale SOON (within a day or so). I've had trouble getting my Paypal link working correctly.

    Thanks again!

  12. Well I can't view anything on SC. (pout) because I am not a demo, so yay for blogs and links from friends. This is an absolutely gorgeous clever creation! It is so thrilling to see all the awesome ideas the demos are coming up with using the Dress up Framelits and the PNCs. Awesome!

  13. Ook weer geweldig Karen, heb je mijn album al gezien op mijn blog? Het was een workshop in Holland die ik gaf met enorm veel succes ;o) http://anita-izendoorn.blogspot.nl/2013/03/accordian-album-workshop-deel-1.html

    Warme groetjes,

  14. Thanks you all SO much. You have no idea what it means to me that you all like my work. I'm usually just sitting in my studio in my pjs crafting away (and singing loudly).... It isn't "pretty"!! But seriously...I love you all so much for taking time to comment and for coming back!

  15. I love your work! You really take the designs to a different level!

  16. HI Michelle,

    I am a demonstrator and saw you at the Maryland regional. I have to say I LOVE your work. You are so talented. Your stories about all the punch cards and your family was just great. I love the way all the punch characters were named! You were such a joy to listen to. Thanks again. How do I get tutorials for the things you showed? Thanks again.


  17. Michelle....I have been patiently waiting for the tutorial on Merida. Have you finished writing it yet? I saw the finished card and would love to purchase the tutorial on it. Any other new Disney princess cards? I am all things Disney. Thanks for the great work and for being such an inspiration to all of us out here.
