Bow Tie Holidays is a spin off of a technique card I created last year that involved coloring glimmer paper. With this tutorial, while I still used glimmer paper, I wanted to focus on the bow builder punch. I love this punch as it makes creating bows quick and simple.  My featured stamp is from the November Paper Pumpkin Kit - Mistletoe and Holly. My Paper Pumpkin has some of the very best photopolymer stamps I have ever seen. I love mixing and matching from one kit to another.

I love the versatility and exclusivity of my Paper Pumpkin stamps. I enjoy the challenge that each new kit brings - not knowing what is coming helps fuel my creativity once it arrives.  Take a look at what we received in the November kit....  Starting with the December kit, anyone who subscribes under me will begin receiving Pumpkin Happy Email from me that contains exclusive additional projects showing step-by-step how stretch your Paper Pumpkin dollars. Projects may or may not use other products - a detailed supply list will accompany each mini tutorial - and not all projects will be cards.
