2017 Graduate!

Welcome back to a new week, friends, I hope your weekend was grand!  With graduations upon us now, I wanted to share with you a fun graduation hat punch art card that I made recently for my daughters BF.

Here is a close up of the punch art graduation hat!  The mortar board (top) is made with a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 1″ x 2″ and creating a diamond shape by making a mark at 1/2″ on the 1″ side and 1″ on the 2″ side.  Then take a ruler and connect the marks to create a diamond shape.  For the base, use a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 1″ x 1″ and making the center of one edge.  Then use the 3/4″ Circle Punch and line up the circle by centering the corner and the center mark.  Adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Here is a close up the tassel that I made with some Basic Black Baker’s Twine.

CARDSTOCK CUTS FOR THIS PROJECT:

  • Rich Razzleberry: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black: 1″ x 2″, 1″ x 1″, 4″ x 5-1/4″

Captain America Popcorn Box and Tag

My daughter just turned 15 and absolutely loves Captain America.  So I knew for her birthday I would be making something with that in mind.  I love the new Popcorn Box Thinlit Die.  It is such a fun box to fill with goodies.  Here’s a funny story, I made this and after I took these photos, my daughter came into my craft room and asked me why I made a Captain America tag/box.  I told her it was for her and she got the biggest smile on her face ~ priceless! Of course, I still need to fill it with something, maybe cash or a gift card.

After I die-cut the Popcorn Box out, I ran it back through the Big Shot using the Lucky Stars TIEF.  I had a little trouble with securing the bottom of the box but leave it to Stampin’ Up! to have a video on You Tube!

Close up of the tag, turned out really cool!

Happy Easter – Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Easter!

Today I’m sharing my Punch Art Bunny Butt card!  I knew I would be making a bunny butt card as soon as I saw the Honeycomb Embellishments.  It sure makes for the perfect fluffy tail, don’t you think?  While the bunny is created using several Circle Punches and the Large Oval Punch, she is pretty easy to figure out.  I am including instructions on how I made the flowers though.

Here are some close up photos of today’s card creation!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FLOWERS

Cut two pieces of floral wire (about 3-1/2″ long) and one more (about 3″ long) . These wires are used as “hollyhock” stems and one will be used as a “sunflower” stem.  I found that 18-gauge green floral wire works well.  Punch ten flowers from Rose Red Cardstock using the flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Punch ten hearts from Old Olive Cardstock using the heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

To make hollyhocks, curl the round edges of the hearts around something small in diameter, I used a wooden skewer.  Attach a Mini Glue Dot to the front of each heart, then pinch around the floral wire so the rounded edges curl back. Rotate the wire so the leaves are facing different directions. Attach five leaves each on two wires.  If desired, use a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center of each flower.

Attach five of the four petal flowers to each of the two stems using Mini Glue Dots. (Position the flowers so they cover up the floral wire.) Bend the petals upward to give the flowers dimension.

To create sunflowers, punch two flowers from So Saffron Cardstock using the Petite Petals Punch.  Wet all three flowers using a fine mist from a spray bottle. Lay each flower on the Stampin’ Pierce Mat, then press down in the center of each flower with the handle of the Paper-Piercing Tool. This will create dimension by causing the flowers to curl up.  If desired, use a Rhinestone Basic Jewel or Silver Mini Brad in the center of each flower.  Attach a Mini Glue Dot to the back of each flower, then press onto the floral wire.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will continue the rest of the way around our hop!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

This card was inspired from one that I saw on display at Convention this past summer, showcasing the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set.  For every stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  I added my own twist to it and it was so much fun to make!  I think that the Neutrals Candy Dots are perfect for the “coal”, don’t you think?

Here is a close up of many of the details on this card.

It is hard to see, but I used Shimmery White Cardstock for the snowman as well as the snow drifts.

Team Stamp It Easter Blog Hop – Easter Frame

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Easter Blog Hop! Hopefully, you already checked out Tami White’s awesome creation, but if not, you can head there afterwards!  Yesterday was the First Day of Spring, so lets kick off Spring in the right direction, shall we?  I created a little Easter frame that will look good on a desk or your kitchen counter.  It is small enough (6-1/2″ square) to place just about anywhere.  I loved how it turned out!

I hope you are enjoying today’s hop and continue through the rest of the posts!

Happily Ever After

My friends that are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows are HUGE (and I mean gigantic) Disney fans.  I thought this was a prefect wedding card for them!  Check out the sampled envelope, never send a naked one!  I also used the new Hearts Border Punch to add something a little different.

I Love You More Than…

I am addicted to the game Angry Birds!  All thanks to my husband no-less.  We both got new phones last year and ever since I have been hooked.  So I thought this would be a very fitting card for Valentine’s Day for my husband.
