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.

Just for You {Thank You Card} New In Color Pool Party

I love the new color Pool Party! It’s my all time favorite color. Layered with chocolate chip and another pattern from Flirtatious Specialty DSP, it’s bright, summery and fun.

The sentiment is from Afterthoughts, a Hostess set, stamped in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. I punched out the circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. It’s hard to notice, but I stamped the small flower from Afterthoughts in So Saffron ink, stamping off first for a lighter effect. Around the edges, I sponged on some Pool Party ink using a sponge dauber.

The scallop circle is Melon Mambo textured card stock, punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle. I used the cropadile to punch the holes in each scallop (the larger hole punch). Two basic rhinestones and Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon finish off the card in terms of accessories.
