Well Today I thought I would share a card I made for one of my demo friends daughter. She is having a baby sometime the end of July and asked me to the shower.
Which is lovely except I loaned her all my baby stamps. So because of that I had to get creative. I found some punch art on the web and made this card. It was a lot of fun to do. I love doing punch art. While it takes a lot of time and sticky fingers I love the fact that SU punches are so versatile. You literally can create anything. In the next little while I will show you what I mean.
Did I actually create these from scratch, Yes. Did someone more creative than me originally create them Yes! So thank you from the bottom of my heart for those people, cause they make my job so much easier. lol
I used Whisper White as my base and a piece of retired DSP for the background. The lion was the scallop circle and 1 3/8 " punch the ears were from the retired itty bitty punch pack and the eyes were the owl builder punch. The nose was a circle from that punch also. The tail was a curved piece I made with the circle punch and the tip was just something I cut out free hand. Whew a mouthful!
The giraffe was also a retired small oval punch. The Neck I cut from a strip of card stock. I used Pool Party and Island Indigo card stock. I cut the circles out with the owl builder punch and the neck edging was the scallop border punch. I just colored in the eyes using a Project Life black pen.
The elephant was made using the small oval punch and the face was the 1 inch circle punch. I cut the trunk free hand and eyes were done using the Project life pen.
A lot of the punches I use are retired but when you need them it's nice to have them so I don't usually get rid of them, and this card illustrates why. lol.
So bring on the Baby! And that's it for me today!
