Easter Bunny Punch Card

Did you notice this cute little card in my Stampin’ Buffet this month?

Easter Bunny Punch Art Card

I’m a huge fan of punch art so when I was trying to decide on a fun idea for an Easter card I couldn’t resit making a punch art bunny.  The fun spring colors of the Sale-a-bration paper works perfect with this card along with the sale-a-bration embossing folder.

Do you send Easter cards?  I never have, but I think it would be fun to get this little guy in the mail.  Of course you could change the sentiment to Thank You or Happy Birthday because this little guy is sure to make anyone’s day.

Dinosaur Punch Art

I’ve been seeing throw back Thursday on Facebook a lot and I thought it would be fun to do it on my blog.  I’m not sure that Thursday will always be a throw back, but I’ll try.  If you are like me you keep stamps, punches and even paper that you love even though you can’t by them anymore.  So I figure why not share some fun ideas to do with them.  Maybe I’ll even make some new projects using retired products.  Who knows.  So now lets get on with the project because hey that’s the fun part right?

Dino Chart

Every year Stampin’ Up! has a contest called the Artisan Design contest.  I’ve entered many years, while I’ve never won I’ve had my projects shown at Convention and I’ve enjoyed creating them.  It does however make me sad to give them away.  Some of them I’ve re-created and some I’m still planning on it.  This is one of the still planning on it projects.  Hopefully before my little boy grows out of dinosaurs.  I think this was the hardest one to give away and I wish I had it still.  It was also quite big so I actually took it to Stampin’ Up! (Good thing I live close.)

Dino Chart Top

This is the top of the chart.  I used MDS to create all the pictures for the chart.  I changed them all to Sepia so they would match and added a fun background.  I also added the age and height.  He was only 5 when I made the chart so I left spots to add more pictures over the years.  I attached twigs to the top to hang it with.  Of course the top picture is when he was born.  So cute.

Bird Dino

Here’s a better picture of the bird Dino.  All of the dino’s are made using punch art and shapes from the big shot.  Can anyone guess where I got my inspiration for my characters.  Yep “Land Before Time.”  You can also see the close up of the texture on the letters.  I cut them out of chip board and paper, then glued the textured paper to the clipboard.

Green Dino

Next is my green Dino working his way up the mountain.  The mountain is just created by tearing up paper and crumbling it up then smoothing it out.  I used the directly to paper technique to add texture.  (That’s where you just take the ink pad straight to the paper to highlight the texture and edges.)

Brown Dino

Here’s the brown Dino.  I think I actually used the leave die to make the splotches on his back.  You’ll noticed I also added some grass to the mountain by just tearing up paper and snipping the edges.

Orange Dino

This one wasn’t really in the movie, but I wanted one more to work with the spacing.  I think he turned out cute.  He also had to be orange because that’s my son’s favorite color.  The ruler was created by using the simply scored tool.  I placed a cardboard so I would know how far to score each section so they stayed even.  Then I flipped it over and used a sponge to highlight the marks and added the numbers with the calender set.

 

T-Rex Dino

Of course we had to have the T-Rex at the bottom chasing the little Dino’s up the chart.  I left space on the side so that I could mark the height and write the date.  My son was very disappointed that I gave away the T-Rex.  That’s his favorite Dino.  Just posting about this makes me want to re-create it.

I hope you have enjoyed my throw back Thursday.  As you can see I really do love punch art.  It’s so fun to see what you can create using our awesome punches.  Especially something they weren’t designed for.

Club October 2009

If you missed club this month you missed a very fun and cool project.  This month I showed my club members how to use the new Shimmer Paints in the Mini Catalog.  These are so awesome and so much fun.  I showed them two fun ways to use this awesome paint.  The first is applying the paint to your stamps using a sponge dauber and then stamping as usual.  It gives a really fun look to your project.  The next way is by spraying it on.  To do this you need to fill a 2 oz spray bottle (I got mine in the travel section) with rubbing alcohol and then adding about 12 drops of shimmer paint.  I bought one bottle for each of the three colors.  They actually go a long way so they could last quite a while.  To apply all you do is shake it good and then spray it on.  The alcohol helps it to try pretty fast.

Goblins Card- Club Oct '09So here is the first card that we made.  We spritzed the whole card base first and we stamped on the black section behind the words.  The idea was inspired by a card that I got from our swap at Brandi’s meeting it was made by Kathrine and it was actually the winning swap.

10-09 Goblins PageHere are the matching pages that my scrapbookers were able to make.  The black part is spritzed on both pages.  The cards and the pages used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

Halloween SparkleOur second card was a card that my friend Ashley made for the swap.  I just loved this card and had to use it.  We used the White Shimmer Paint for this one.  I just love the sparkle it adds to the card.

Mummy EyesWe also made a bonus project.  This card was my card swap for Brandi’s meeting.  I used the window sheets to create the eyes.

10-09- Mummy Eyes OpenHere is what the card looks like on the inside.  It uses the fun pumpkin patch set from the mini catalog.
