Punch Collage Backgrounds: A How-To with Stampin’ Up!®’s Rainbow of Happiness Bundle


Have you used a punch to create a subtle shape background yet? The Cloud Punch combined with the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle is ideal for this technique – I’ll show you how to place your punch shapes for the perfect staggered look, including tips that make it easy to piece your partial cloud punch shapes. Add in the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper for an elegant shimmer effect, and mix and match the rainbow shapes from the Brilliant Rainbows Dies for great combinations.


Wondering about my color choices? They’re copied straight out of the coordinating Sale-A-Bration Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper. Even though the paper doesn’t appear on this card, it’s still inspiring my card choices.

Cloud Punch Collage Background Technique:

The Punch Collage Background Technique is pretty simple, but I do have a few tips for you.

  1. Place all your punched clouds (or other shapes) on the card layer without adhering anything.
  2. After moving your pieces to the perfect location (tip – keep them all straight), stamp any images you need, like the ‘thank you’ greetings here.
  3. Remove one punched piece at a time and place a dimensional on the card layer. Place your punched element down to hold in place.
  4. Turn your card layer to the back side and trim away any elements that overlap the edge.
