My first project was a card we made in my recent Punch Art Class, and was inspired by Jackie Topa.  I have the punch pieces shown below for you ... don't you just love Santa coming out of the Chimney and the Bag of Gifts???

The featured punch here is the Ticket Duo Punch (item #126883, pg 182 Stampin' Up! catalog)... it makes both the bricks for the chimney and the little gifts in Santa's sack!

My 2nd project for you today is another class sample.. we made this one last week in class.. The Medallion stamp makes a great wreath when you die cut it with the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits, and then use a 1-3/4" circle punch to punch out the center!!

Class attendees made all 3 card versions, featuring the Candlelight Christmas DSP.
