Then there was the PUNCHY Waterfall Card...

My dear friend, Stephanie, challenged me to come up with a Waterfall Card, using the Stampin' Up! 1-1/4" Square Punch and the 1-3/8" Square Punch. Well, Steph, here it is!

Blue card stock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4" (folded base: 5-1/2' x 4-1/4")
Barely Banana card stock: 5/8" x 4-1/4" (for the anchor)
Barely Banana card stock: 1-3/8" x 6" - scored at 1-1/4", 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 2-3/4"


Supplies used for this card:

1-1/4" Square Punch, 1-3/8" Square Punch
Card Stock: Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamp set: Tart & Tangy, One Smart Cookie (not shown)


Ink for apple and cherry: Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip

I stamped the stem of the cherry in Wild Wasabi and wiped the ink off the fruit and then added the Real Red with my Stampin' Write marker. I colored in the inside of the apple first with my Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write marker and then went around the skin of the apple with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker. Then I carefully stamped the leaf on the Wild Wasabi ink pad and wiped the excess ink off the stem. Finally I colored in the stem with my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write marker.


Ink used for orange: Only Orange, Pumpkin Pie

I stamped the orange in Only Orange. Then I went around the rind of the orange with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker.


Ink used for strawberry: Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose, Rose Red

I stamped the strawberry once in Wild Wasabi and cut out the top and set it aside. Then I stamped it this time in Regal Rose and rocked it in Rose Red for highlights. I glued the top on with my 2-way glue pen.






Here's yesterday's Punny Waterfall Card. A link to my Waterfall Card Tutorial can be found in there.

One of my best friends and awesome downline, Amy, made this very sweet onesie:

Isn't it just darling?
Here's the link to Lauren Meader's fantastic Onesie Tutorial.

Jane, you rock these waterfall cards!! Thanks so much for taking on the challenge. Guess I have no excuse now to try it myself. It's been 18 months since my last Waterfall (wait, now I'm sounding like I'm in a confessional at church!) Huge hugs & thanks for the great sample! You're amazing and so dear to me!
