Becca Bit: Right Angle Punching – Part 3

Hi there.  I’m back with Part 3 which is the final part on Right Angle Punching.  I also wanted to show the trial borders I made up to help me see what the punch outs would look like.  I created a card that uses the technique to create a medallion. It’s similar to the cards I’ve made for the past couple of days but this shape is a little bit more complex.  How sweet is that Tilda, I just love her hair!!  This is from the newest collection over at Magnolia-licious called the Fairytale Collection and this one is #231 Spellcaster Tilda.

For the medallion I used Martha Stewart Layered Arches Corner Punch.  On top of that I layered
Spellbinders Labels Labels Twelve and Petite Ovals Small with a little curly cue at the top – that’s Flourish Accents.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Magnolia-licious – #231 Spellcaster Tilda
Paper:  The Paper Company, Paper Studio Pearl, K&Co. Madeline
Ink:  Memento – Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Labels Twelve, Spellbinders™ Petite Ovals Small, Spellbinder™ Flourish Accents, MS Layered Arches Corner Punch, EK Success Corner Rounder, May Arts Satin Stitched Ribbon, Pearls, Copics

Here are examples of the borders I punched out with the Corner Punches.  I decided to do this so because the combination of the two make the right angles for the medallion and this helps me really see :-)  I know it boggles the mind – what I didn’t show are the actual border punches too.

There are more below – yes, I practiced!!

Lastly, here is third video on Right Angle Punching!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks so much for the tutorials on right angle punching. This was so cool and lots of fun. We know we can count on you to keep us brain-storming with our punches and spellbinders. Always fabulous and beautiful projects. I know you kept the last video quiet so it would go faster,but I kinda missed hearing you talk. Thanks again and have a great night.ReplyCancel

  • Darlene JJune 17, 2010 - 10:05 pm

    Now I have to go back and watch it again, so beautiful. I know I will watch these three tutorials several more times. I may be wasting alot of paper soon. Thanks for all the inspiration.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    How do you do it? Your ideas and cards are so beautiful. I look forward to your emails more than anybody else’s!

    Does Martha Stewart know your address? She should so that the company can send you money! I’m sure their sales of punches have started to go through the roof because of your lovely cards and demos!

    Thank you for your daily inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • ColoradoJune 17, 2010 - 10:30 pm

    Wow! Martha’s company must send you you all the new punches as they come out… it appears you have them all! I can’t wait to try the right angle technique!! It’s very cool!ReplyCancel

  • Gloria WestermanJune 17, 2010 - 10:49 pm

  • Candy MillsJune 17, 2010 - 11:50 pm

    Hi Becca,
    What ever would we do without you and your marvelous ideas??
    Do you have all the MS Punches and all of the Spellbinders? Sure looks like it. I hope to find at least one or two of these the next time I can get to a Michaels store.
    Many thanks for all you do for us.
    Hugs, CandyReplyCancel

  • Deebi27June 18, 2010 - 12:17 am

    What a triple play, you always make everything appear so easy, I didn’t get the bow tying, even though I repeated the video over and over. (It will be revisited again). This goody seems even more possible. but I find not any corner stamp will work. I will find a cool MS punch tomorrow and work my magic…thanks to you! Great tutorials…you ARE a master as what you do!ReplyCancel

  • MaryannJune 18, 2010 - 12:23 am

    WAUW I have seen all the bits now about this technique, and Im sooo amazes about the beautiful look on them. Thanks sooo much for sharing all these things and for making these videotutorials. I´m a person, who learns best by seing it done, so I´m just thrilled by these, and I´m definately going to try this soon too. I just LOVE it. Just soooo hard to get MS punchers here and sooo expensive to have them sent all over here from the US, but I would really love to have all her lace border- and corner punchers. I would just go awohl then he he he he. Thanks sooo much for a wondderful site.
    By the way, I also just loved the gorgeous card, you made with this too.
    Big hugs MaryannReplyCancel

  • minervaJune 18, 2010 - 2:40 am

    PS how did you punch the squared off border strip on the left hand side of you demo pictures…i can’t seem to figure out how to position my punch to get such a regular border…thanksReplyCancel

  • CherylJune 18, 2010 - 4:33 am

    Beautiful card Becca! Thanks again for showing us this technique. Could you show us how to make the beautiful bow on your card? I know there are other bow tutorials but this one is a little different. I still haven’t gotten one bow to look as nice as yours. Thanks.
    Hugs CherylReplyCancel

  • lois skiathitisJune 18, 2010 - 4:48 am

    Thanks for the Becca Bits mini series. I love your card today Becca, Tilda is just so sweet and I like her hair too. The bow is tied so nicely today. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • Pat H.June 18, 2010 - 4:59 am

    Hmmm..yet another reason to purchase a MS punch!! Thank you again for being so generous with your ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Beth GrecoJune 18, 2010 - 5:19 am

    Hah… That is awesome. I got to giggling though as it felt like one of those old silent movies. What beautiful work you do. I can’t imagine how you come up with these ideas. Between the punchies and the nesties, you’ve been very creative!!! Thanks for sharing all your ideas with us!!ReplyCancel

  • christine BrownlowJune 18, 2010 - 6:20 am

    Hi Becca,
    Thank you for your fantastic tutorials, I don’t know how you keep coming up with such beautiful ideas. You are so inspiring. I promised myself I wasn’t buying any more craft things. But I have just had to order this punch that you have used its so beautiful.
    I only have one MS punch will this techneque work with any other punches?
    Thank you again for sharing all your ideas with us. Take care Hugsx ChrisReplyCancel

  • CandiJune 18, 2010 - 6:29 am

  • Mary R.June 18, 2010 - 7:38 am

    Okay, Becca, I understand the trimming off process now. I cannot believe how creative and talented you are. I really do appreciate your Becca Bits and videos. Being a visual person, the video is truly appreciated. Just love your blog. Thanks for all you do and share.ReplyCancel

  • Cindy H.June 18, 2010 - 8:04 am

    Wow, your right angle punching is amazing but since I don’t own one corner punch, I think I need to get shopping so I can try your wonderful technique out :) Thanks so much for sharing another super video tutorial, too. Love the sweet Tilda card!!ReplyCancel

  • Fonda TottenJune 18, 2010 - 8:14 am

    Becca ~ Your tutorials are amazingly simple. I like that I can pause the video so I can punch along! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity. I’ve got so many more uses for my corner punches now. Have a blessed day!ReplyCancel

  • RubyJune 18, 2010 - 8:44 am

    Great video, you do great work. I just have to remember to turn the corner I’m afraid that I will continue going ’round’ the corner haha! Well practice makes perfect. I love your blog, you keep us challenged. Tks again for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Thanks Becca!! This is such great information.ReplyCancel

  • janeyJune 18, 2010 - 9:06 am

    Becca, Thanks for your tutorials on how to use our punches in another way. I think all the samples you showed help us visualize all the possibilities. I want to use the postage size techqniue and am grateful that I was able to watch the Part 1 Becca Bit again. I also think it’s important that you stress that you practiced a lot to get to this level of success.


  • Kelly SasJune 18, 2010 - 9:13 am

    Becca you are my idol, my Rock Star!!! I think if I ever got to meet you I would faint. The way your mind works is pure genius! God certainly has blessed you with creative talent. May God continue to bless you with Amazing Paper Grace!ReplyCancel

  • Carol WJune 18, 2010 - 9:41 am

    What a wonderful “grand finale” to this series of videos! Like others have commented, I have already added to my collection of MS corner punches just so I can do this!
    Thank you for stepping this out into 3 parts so we could get the hang of it and not feel overwhelmed. You’re absolutely right that once you get the first step, the second will come more easily, and so on. You are a wonderful instructor!ReplyCancel

  • Chris R.June 18, 2010 - 9:49 am

    Your creativity boggles my mind! Once again you have amazed me! Thank you for taking the time to make the videos for us.ReplyCancel

  • Wendy MooreJune 18, 2010 - 10:06 am

    The final act – curtains closed. Applause, applause. Thanks so much for these tutorials. I tried both 1 & 2 and used all the MS punches I own. They all turned out perfect. Can’t wait to work on the 3 rd tutorial. You’re the best!ReplyCancel

  • Martha NicholsonJune 18, 2010 - 10:15 am

    That has to bee the fastest Becca bit I ever watched. So for I have made it through step 2. I hope I can get this down pat. Thanks for showing all the different punches. I wish you had listed the names of each punch beside them. But I’ll find them somehow. Thanks for your wisdom.ReplyCancel

  • Debbie GJune 18, 2010 - 12:41 pm

    Oh my word! It’s getting expensive to read your blog!!! I don’t have any MS punches, and I don’t think this technique will work with the corner punches I have… so as soon as I finish buying the spellbinders dies (which I started because of you), then I will start buying MS punches!!!! Hmmm, as everyone else says I hope these companies are reimbursing you! :)ReplyCancel

  • Terri MJune 18, 2010 - 1:05 pm

    I am always amazed at how you are able to look at a punch or a Spellbinder and see beyond the original design it was created for. I want to also thank you for sharing your creativity so that we can attempt to copy from the master of the punch!ReplyCancel

  • Kay MJune 18, 2010 - 1:55 pm

    Thanks so much, Becca, for a wonderful tutorial on right angle punching. This is another great way to use all our corner stamps. Your cards always give me such inspiration. They are always beautiful and your are so kind to share your knowledge and creativity with us! Bless you!ReplyCancel

  • JanJune 18, 2010 - 2:16 pm

    I have watched all three of these videos and all I can say is WOW! Becca, you are a genius! I am sure that you have singlehandedly brought about a jump in sales of MS corner punches and I think Martha should hire you or at least give you a cut. Thanks for sharing your genius with us and may God bless you and yours.ReplyCancel

  • alcoholinkyJune 18, 2010 - 2:31 pm

    brilliant. I’ve really enjoyed following your tuts and I’ve definitely learnt something. I don’t know how you mange to visualise these shapes. very clever!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy LouJune 18, 2010 - 4:29 pm

    Becca, You rock! I know I repeat myself, but this technique is so much fun and so very addictive. I sat in my craft room for 3 hours last night doing different punching/variations of your technique. Thanks for being so willing to share. Blessings ;)ReplyCancel

  • Nancy WJune 18, 2010 - 4:58 pm

    I am in awe of your creativity with those punches and the nestabilities. I love using punches and nestabilities in combination with Glitter Ritz microfine glitter and Sookwang/aka ScorTape.

    On the other hand, browsing your website is hard on my pocketbook as I can’t resist those punches when I see the possibilities.ReplyCancel

  • SherylHJune 18, 2010 - 6:14 pm

    Thanks for the great tutorials — just happened to purchase the Modern Garland corner punch at Michaels today and I actually made the small medallion on the first try! (well once I figured out that the paper doesn’t need to be seated within the wings of the punch) Now off to try the other two techniques. Thanks also for posting pictures of the other various corner punches as well — great to see more ideas. I will have to dig through my neglected punches and see what other corner ones I can find.ReplyCancel

  • JeanneJune 18, 2010 - 6:44 pm

    Becca, Becca, Becca,

    This is truly amazing! Every message says the same thing, we all want to buy these punches! I can’t wait to try this technique. The video’s are amazing! I am glad someone mentioned that we can pause the video, that will be so helpful. Thank you for keeping us glued to your website!ReplyCancel

  • sallieJune 18, 2010 - 7:53 pm

    WOW you make it look so easy. I am going to have to watch you do that a few more times before I try it. Love what you do!ReplyCancel

  • pat pJune 18, 2010 - 10:25 pm

    Dear Becca
    Wow look at all those practice sessions…and then you come and share this all with us..I’m so grateful. I will have to watch these video’s many times to sink it into my head..

    This is really a classic Becca design. You do such beautiful work with these creations of yours.. Your truly an artist and always searching for more creative ways of doing things. You create some of the most classic and elegant designs I’ve ever seen. Looking at your work makes me want to do better and be like you. Creative and so very original. You set the bar for beautiful creative work.
    Thank you from my heart Becca.
    PS I hope your husband is doing well. He is a very lucky man to have you as a mate.


  • Lynne PhelpsJune 18, 2010 - 10:37 pm

    Thank you for coming up with a way to teach this technique without frying our brains! I love it that you are so analytical and look at the tools capabilities without being confined by their intended purpose. Bravo Becca, bravo!!!ReplyCancel

  • MarcieJune 19, 2010 - 12:18 am


    Love this new technique of yours. Definitely have to try it out. It is superb!!! But we have become accustom to nothing less from you.

    MS does have a few more corner punches then those that you displayed. Out of curiousity, did you try them and just didn’t like their effect or are they actually some that you don’t have?

    Thanks so much for the three tutorials. It really does help to see you doing it.

    OMG, you rock! Truly amazing and inspiring and can’t thank you enough for the videos!!!!!ReplyCancel

  • BillieJune 19, 2010 - 7:28 am

    Becca, your work is FABULOUS…….I wish I had your talent. I do have the MS Punches and can’t wait to try them out. The problem I had was my sound, I couldn’t make out what you were the type ribbon you were using on the Bow Collar…..if you would please get me know, I would appreciate it and again, thanks for your information. Keep up the good work.ReplyCancel

    Whew! That was fast! Watched it straight through, but now have to go back and pause it and try to read the print I couldn’t see while it was running. Don’t know if you have any other visually impaired readers, but I’m sure, like me, they would have loved to have had the audio description of what you were doing.ReplyCancel

  • claudiaJune 21, 2010 - 9:52 pm

    Unbelievable. I see why you’re the expert. I can only hope I will be able to do these projects.ReplyCancel

  • AlexandraJune 22, 2010 - 5:02 pm

    Wow Becca, I love what you did with these punches. I don’t have any MS punches yet, I thought they were a bit pricey here in the UK, so I couldn’t justify the cost as I have a few corner and edge punches and dies. However you’ve convinced me a punch is not always just a punch, when you can do so much with these.
    Thanks for the tutorials, I’ll be back to watch them again once I’ve saved up my pennies to buy a couple of these to start me off.
    btw, the cards you’ve created using this technique are gorgeous.ReplyCancel

    Wow, wow, wow, you are positively a genius. I bought a MS corner punch today with my 40% off coupon at Michael’s and went all the way through step 3. Everything came out PERFECT! Thank you so much for so generously sharing your creative talents with us. I will be using this technique and giving you credit with a link on my blog! Thank you again.ReplyCancel

  • Magda VinasJuly 19, 2010 - 3:53 pm

    Dear Beca,
    I’m amazed at the beatiful things you do, not wonder that your site is called Amazing Grace!
    I have been practicing the righ angle 3 but get loss at the second row in the corner; I will keep trying until I master it.
    Thanks for the wonderful things you do for us and the bits!
    God bless you!
