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.

Sneak Peek 2 {New In Colors}

This is another card I made using some new products. The card base is Calypso Coral. It’s an orange coral–bright and summery. I layered it with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla, which tones it down a little bit.

The stamped floral image is from My Friend (available July 1st), in new In Color Lucky Limeade ink. The sentiment is from Word Play. I colored the stamp with Calypso Coral and Soft Suede Markers, stamped it on Very Vanilla and layered it with Soft Suede card stock.

I added an Antique Brad and some Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (I used the reverse side) to finish the card.

Sneak Peek {New In Colors & Stamps}

I was able to preorder  a few things from the upcoming catalog (available July 1, 2011) including the 5 new In Colors. This card showcases all of the new In Colors: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, and Lucky Limeade.

The card base is Pool Party (my favorite), layered with Basic Gray card stock. The stamps are from a Sneak Peek set called My Friend. I stamped the droplet image five times, turning it upside down every other time. Then, I colored in the drops with the In Color Markers and topped them off with Crystal Effects.

The sentiment is also from My Friend, stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I added a small button from Bitty Buttons, layered with Calypso Coral card stock I punched with the corresponding Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I tied some Linen Thread through the button and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot.
