Shrek Punch Art

One of my co-workers is in the Shrek production this weekend and next.  I created this punch card to wish her luck (aka “break a leg”).

I did use some retired items such as the Top Note Die (my children will have to tear this from my hands before they bury me) and Lucky Limeade card stock (the perfect green for Shrek).  I was a little heavy on the sponging on this one.  I liked how the banner punch worked for his ears.

Of course, my co-worker did an amazing job!

Gently Falling Top Note Birthday Card

I’ve been itching to use my fall stamp sets.  Not that I don’t love my flowers, but I’m ready for the change of seasons.  Gently Falling is that perfect fall stamp set that can be used for many different occasions.  This is a swap I made over the summer – I love the masculine color combination.

Valentine Owls on a Swing Card

I host an All About Men stamping event every winter.  At this event, my stampers always create a valentine for their someone special.  My customers love the owl punch so I knew I had to work it in to one of my projects.

Valentine Owls -All About Men 2013

The tree branch is from the Take Care stamp set.  I was inspired by another demonstrator's non-Valentine card using the owls on a swing.  Thanks Michelle!

Top Note Die Purse Card

My favorite Big Shot Die has to be the Top Note Die.  It is exclusive to Stampin' Up! – and there are truly hundreds of ideas for this one die!  Here is an example of one I created with some of our new colors – Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, and Pear Pizzazz.  I also used a Basic Jewel for the "latch" – those are so fabulous and soo sparkly!  The phrase is from one of my favorite new sets – Just Believe.

The background is the Polka Dot Embossing Folder – another favorite of mine!!!
