Punch Art Fun {Flower with Pearl Center}

I saw a similar treatment using pearls in the center of a red flower in the new 2011-2012 Catalog. It inspired me to make something similar. The card base is basic Whisper White, but I layered it with new In Color Pool Party card stock, embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder in the Big Shot.

The flower is made using Real Red textured card stock and the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I cut in between each scallop to create the flower “petals”. In the center, I used So Saffron card stock, textured with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, then punched out a 1 3/8″ Circle. The Basic Pearls were adhered to the center of flowers made using the Punch Pack.

For the stem, I cut a strip of Lucky Limeade card stock and folded it up before adhering it to the base with Mini Glue Dots. The “leaves” are made with the Small Heart Punch.

Across the bottom of the card, I layered Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon on 5/8″ Whisper White Grosgrain. The sentiment is from My Friend, stamped in Lucky Limeade ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the Modern Label Punch and layered it onto a Real Red Textured 1″ Circle Punch. Two tiny Basic Pearls finish off the card.

For Dads

Although this card was for Father’s Day, it can be used for Dad’s Birthday or any other special occasion. Since it was for my husband, I went with his favorite colors: Green and Blue (well he really likes green, but I added some Indigo in there for good measure).

The card base is new In Color Lucky Limeade (available July 1st), layered with Island Indigo (another new In Color) and Nursery Suite DSP in the Old Olive/White combo.

Across the front, I took a strip of Island Indigo and wrapped Twill Tape around it. Then, using the cropadile, I added some pewter colored Jumbo Eyelets to either side.

In the center, I used Take a Spin and inked up the stamp once with Lucky Limeade and another time with Island Indigo ink. Then I stamped it each time onto Whisper White and punched out the Limeade image’s inner circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and hand cut the Indigo image’s outer circle very close to the stamped image with scissors. I added in a Game Spinner Hand and then popped up the smaller circle with stampin dimensionals. Finally, it was all layered onto Daffodil Delight card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment at the bottom is from To a Classic, stamped with Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Markers. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then layered it onto Island Indigo Modern Label Punch. That is also up on stampin dimensionals.

Naughty and Nice Christmas Card

I really like the Tags Til Christmas set, and adding the tags to a card is another great idea for them. Here, I stamped the tree from Season of Joy on Whisper White after coloring the stamp with Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight, and Chocolate Chip Markers. With a fine tip glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds, I added some glitter to the swirls on the tree. That layer was then matted onto Chocolate Chip card stock and paper pierced around the edges with the paper piercer.

The card base is Real Red, layered with Whisper White and retired Holiday Lounge DSP.

As I mentioned before, the sentiment is from Tags Til Christmas. I colored in the stamp with Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, and Always Artichoke Markers, stamping it twice. I punched one of them with the Curly Label Punch, and cut out the colored words from the other, attaching them to the Curly Label piece with stampin dimensionals.

Then, I just layered the Curly Label Punch onto a Chocolate Chip Modern Label Punch and Real Red Decorative Label Punch. Two green Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads finish off the tag.

Behind the tag, I added a piece of Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon, notching the ends with my Craft & Paper Scissors (aka My Ribbon Scissors).
