Didn't I say I was through with punch art? Well, I saw this fella and pulled those punches right back out again. I had a request for a child's birthday card. I'm not sure a child is going to get mine! I like him too much! We used some of the retiring colors and about 90 punches! He is just too cute. Sorry, I misplaced the name of the artist. I will post it when I find it.
One of the requests was for a patriotic card and how timely! The new Summer Mini catalog has an excellent stamp set, July Fourth and wheel, Red White and Blue, perfect for the task. I took the idea straight from the catalog itself. This would be great for thanking a military hero or sending someone 4th of July greetings.
A very observant stamper saw a magnet similar to this on my fridge and requested them for this camp. Using the laminate samples from one of the big home improvement stores, we made these mini clipboard magnets. Love those colors.
I love the look of stenciling. I thought this card could do double duty for both requests of a sympathy and get well card. Using the Bird Punch to make a template, we sponged ink on the card stock and placed that little bird on his limb. The front edge is torn slightly to show the designer paper from the Sweet Pea paper stack peeking out underneath. I saw a variation of this card on the blog chicnscratch.
Of course we needed a Mother's Day card and the new Two-Step Awash With Flowers was perfect for Mom. Melon Mambo ribbon and ink with Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper set it off for a card that Mom will love to receive.
