Sending You Hugs!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in Birthday, Memory Keeping, Other, Punch Art, Thanks

This adorable swap card was created by Jenni Pauli.  The inside of the card has vellum pockets with card candy in each pocket–ready to put on a card when you need to make a quick card! It is larger than the standard card size but it was absolutely outstanding, decorated tastefully inside and out! If you haven’t guessed, I’m back from Thailand so now it’s time to start crafting again!  I’m excited about tomorrow’s post–my own creation that I made with retired paper, stamps, ink and ribbon for the Adult Special Needs class I’ll be starting to teach this week!  I hope you can come back to see my very own design, which I love! I’m still adjusting to Mountain Standard Time so this post is rather late, so I’ll plan to post earlier...

Happiest Birthday Wishes!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in Birthday, Punch Art

Here’s my first creation for  an Adult Special Needs class I’m starting to teach this week.  This card was made entirely with retired products:  stamps, ink, paper and embellishments.  The only current tools I used were the  2″ and 2 1/2″ circle punches. Do you have retired products and stamps in your collection? I would like to invite you to recreate this card using any retired supplies you have on hand!  If you take up my challenge, please send me a picture of your card and I’d love to post it on my blog! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Note Pad Gift Set

Posted by on May 24, 2017 in 3D, Punch Art

This lovely note pad gift set was created with the Daisy Suite form the new 2017-18 Stampin’ Up catalogue. Tranquil Tide, a new 2017-19 In Color is featured on this project and you can see I used the Daisy stamp set and Punch. Earlier this week I had a contest and asked two questions: how many daisies did I punch? And how many daisies could I punch out of one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock? There were only two parricipants in the contest so I will send them each a hand made Daisy card created with the Daisy Bundle, Susan Bondville and Welma Breiter. On my next post I will share the card the contest participants will receive.  Thank you for participating and for visiting my blog!  Happy crafting!...

Crafty Turtle!

Posted by on Mar 9, 2017 in 3D, Big Shot, Punch Art

Love these turtle cards inspired by Frenchie!  These cards are made with a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock, scored at the 4 1/4″ mark. Cut a shell, 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ square and emboss it with the NEW Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The first sample is Always Artichoke and the second is Crumb Cake.  To create the legs, fold card and using your envelope punch board and punch at 1″ and 3 1/4″ on all four sides.  Repeat on the shell and then cut the legs off.  Sponge with desired colors: I used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Expresso and Always Artichoke.  Have fun and play with color combos. The head is the bell punch with the knob cut off and the tail is the Classic Label Punch.  I had so much fun making these turtle cards, I made 15 in all and shared them with my HandiCrafters and our Dessert Night this week.  I experimented a bit more and Clear Embossed the shell on some of the turtles, after all, turtles do have a shiny, hard shell.  They were a hit!  My next job is to create a detailed photo tutorial. Sale-a-bration will be ending soon so if you haven’t got your favorite FREE items yet, I would encourage you to get them before they are gone! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy crafting!...

Hopping Frog

Posted by on Feb 22, 2017 in 3D, Creative Folds, Punch Art, Sale-a-bration 2017

Todays share is a creative hopper fold, which is one of two fun folds I’ll be sharing at my Creative Folds class this month.  The colors used are Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush and the glittery belly on the frog is the NEW Mint Macaron Glimmer paper, one of the latest Sale-a-bration offerings.  The picture doesn’t quite do justice to this card but I can assure you, it is adorable!  This frog actually hops out of the envelope because the folds just don’t want to stay flat like most cards so you have a real 3D effect! When you open this card, the messages are revealed!  It is so cute! The NEW Glimmer Paper assortment includes 4 sheets of each color: Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Bermuda Bay in 6×6 and is FREE with a $60. order.  This product is bound to be a very popular item and will be featured at my upcoming classes.  Come play with me and try it out!  You can check my class schedule for more details by clicking on Upcoming events and even RSVP to the class. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Get Well Soon!

Posted by on Sep 21, 2016 in Punch Art

Today’s punch art card is a re-post from convention, created by Sheri Woolsey.  I thought this was the perfect card to post as my friend, Delphine, broker her little toe and she is definitely in need of some get well wishes. Although punches retire from time to time and are no longer available, new ones come out so one can create a similar project. Thanks for visiting today.  If you love punch art, and would love to create with me, tell me what you’d love to create and I’ll schedule a class.  Happy...
