Mid Month Motivation: 3D Punch Elements

Before I get to this month's fabulous CASE winner and my card, I'd like to take some time to gently remind you all that if you enter a challenge here at Technique Tuesday, your creation needs to follow the given tutorial.  If you have any other questions about our rules, you can find them under the Challenge Rules tab up at the top.  I'm not sure how much more specific a challenge can be than a tutorial and my DT and I are a little hurt that a lot of our entries so far this month have NOT followed the tutorial.  If this applies to you, please know that you are not eligible for any honors or prizes.  As of next month, entries that do not follow our challenge rules will be deleted.

And now that we've got that unpleasantness out of the way, I'd like to share a CASEd card with you for our 3D Punched Elements Mid Month Motivation!!! A HUGE congrats to...#7 Louise!!!

Here's her fabulous holiday card~

And my CASE~

Congratulations, Louise!  Your trees are fabulous and I absolutely adore your traditional colors as well!  Please grab your badge from the tab above!  Please come and play along this month with us--we love seeing all your amazing creations!  Happy punching! :)

3D Punched Elements

Thanks to all of you who participated in last month's challenge!  The winners of October's challenge will be announced on the 15th of November , so stay tuned! 

November's Top Winner will receive 3 digital sentiments made by yours truly, and each stamper who's card is showcased will receive 1 digital sentiment made by yours truly! ;)  Here's the best part--THE WINNERS get to choose what they want their sentiment to say and what style!  If this doesn't sound like something you'd like, you could choose from some sentiments that I already have made. :)  More details will be forthcoming after winners are announced. 

With all that taken care of, let's get to it! We've got another fabulous challenge for you this month at Technique Tuesday--it's 3D Punch Elements!!!  We cannot wait to see what amazing elements your create with your punches and/or die cuts!

3D Punch Elements

Materials Needed
 Patterned Paper
Punch or die cut
Strong adhesive (I've used Scor-Tape)
Embellishments, etc., to finish your project

"How To"

1. Punch out or die cut an odd amount of pieces--make sure the shape you are using can be folded perfectly in half (technically that means that it is symmetrical).  I've used 5 here as that seems to be a "magic" amount, but 3 or 7 can work.  I wouldn't go above 9.  It will get too heavy and will not stay on your project well.

2. Fold all of your pieces in half. (Hence the need for a symmetrical shape.)

3. Put adhesive on ONE SIDE of your folded pieces.

4. Add another piece on top.  Continue adhering the pieces together until they are all attached to ONE SIDE of another piece.  The element should lie flat at this point.

5. Put adhesive on the back of your element.

6. Adhere it to your project!
