Wacky Wednesday Monster Punch Card

Punch classes are favorite events for my customers!  At my Holiday Cards Punch Class this month, here is the Halloween Punch Card we made:

I did base this off of another demo’s card, but added some of my own creativity too.

Here is what you need to make this card:

  • (2) 1-1/2″ circle punch pieces in Whisper White
  • (4) Tree Builder branches in Real Red
  • (2) 3/4″ circle punch pieces in Pacific Point
  • (2) 1/2″ circle punch pieces in Basic Black
  • (2) Fox Builder tails in Old Olive
  • (1) Fox Builder body in Old Olive (cut for nose)
  • (1) Classic Label punch piece in Whisper White (I punched out about 3/4 of it for the mouth)
  • (1) Star punch point in Whisper White

You do need to trim the branches for the bloodshot eyes.  I also used the chalk marker for the mouth.

The card comes together very quickly.  Don’t forget – how you place the eyes is how nice/wacky/mean a creature can look!

Hope you enjoyed this whimsical card – I think it is a perfect way to celebrate my 16 years as a demonstrator!

Fabulous Friday – Punch Art Palette Card

Today was the last day for our summer school munchkins.  We put on a Cinderella production with 1st through 5th graders.  It was an amazing success, and we had five middle-school helpers who designed and painted all the stage sets.

I created thank you cards for our helpers.  I tweaked an earlier version with current merchandise.  Sorry for the bad picture.  I took it way too early this morning!

The girls loved the cards and pronounced they would be saving them on their bulletin boards.

Even an Elephant Sometimes Forgets

Having a thriving stamping business can sometimes put you in a tailspin, and this is something I have to deal with. When trying to keep business(es), family, and home happy, prioritizing is imperative.  Sadly, my blog has suffered the most this last year (or a little more than a year).

For I believe I totally forgot that today was my 6th anniversary of this current blog.  Last year I should have done something special for a major milestone of 5 years; alas, that didn’t happen.  So let’s celebrate 5+1, ok?  Don’t tell the blog gods I messed up AGAIN.

I’m known for my love of punch cards and punch card classes.  Animal Adventures is now part of my summer repertoire…and because I “ALMOST” forgot, here’s my Edwina the Elephant!

Christmas in July Mrs. Santa Claus Punch Art Tent Card

I love Christmas and punch art cards!  This card features Mrs. Santa Claus and the tent card format.  My stampers made this last year at one of my Christmas Card stamp camps.  Isn't she adorable?

Easter Bunny Butt Punch Art Card

Ok, I was inspired by a fellow demonstrator for this card…and my customers loved it!  Punch art is so fun to do – and bunny butts are just "stinking" cute!

The fence was made with strips of card stock and the jewelry tag punch.  The cross post hides the meeting up of the two pieces.  The grass was made with the leaf from Bloomin' Marvelous (a Sale-A-Bration stamp set).  The clouds were made by punching out a scallop circle and then sponging over it with Bashful Blue.
