Good afternoon crafty friends,
Well, this has been quite a busy week for us crafters. On Saturday we had a class on punch art which was a great success. During the class we created 3 cards using a variety of punches and dies. All products were Stampin' Up! and we all had a great time.
The first card was a Minion card. The base was Daffodil Delight cardstock. The goggles were created with the 2" & 1.5" circle punches. Eyes were made with 1 3/8" circle punch in white card. The mouth is double punched with the 2.5" circle in Crushed Curry cardstock. The pupils and iris are from the small circles in the cupcake builder and the 1/2" circle. The shoulder straps are from the word window punch with 1/2" circle buttons. The remainder of the overalls are just cut to fit the card base.
The second card was the beautiful ballerina card. Perfect for any little girl.
The card base is Very Vanilla with a side fold. The first mat piece is Blushing Bride cut 1/4" smaller than the card front. The second mat piece is a further 1/4" smaller than the Blushing Bride and stamped with the Brushstrokes background stamp in Blushing Bride ink. To create the dress, cut 2 of the sweetheart punch in Blushing Bride cardstock. Cut 1 decorative label in Blushing Bride and 1 Elegant butterfly in Blushing Bride. Cut approximately 4-6 vellum pansy punches. Cut 2 word window in Very Vanilla.
To construct, cut the decorative label from bottom peak to upper corners as shown.
To create bodice, place trimmed decorative label into sweetheart punch and trim upper portion.
Emboss all pink cardstock pieces with decorative dots. Glue the 2 heart pieces upside down to lower side of bodice part. Glue to stamped card front. Place folded in half pansy vellum pieces under the skirt to create the tutu and give the dress volume. To finish, add legs under the skirt and cut off the lower part of the butterfly to create ballet shoes.
Add banner from the Birthday Banners set and stamp sentiment from same set.
Finish with a Blushing Bride bow
The final card is a super quick one. Background cardstock is Soft Sky cut to a notecard size. The Starburst framelit is cut in Marina Mist and placed directly on card front. The angry bird is made with a white 2.5" circle base and the Real Red cardstock is double punched with a 2" circle cut out of the bottom and then punched with the 2.5" circle to create shape as shown.
The head and tail feathers are both made by using the large flower in the Blossom punch and trimming to 3 spikes. These are placed at the top of the head and on the left of the bird.
The circles are made with 1/2" circles and the small circle from the Cupcake Builder punch. Mouth is freehand cut into a small square approx 1/2" wide and cut on the diagonal with a slightly larger portion going to the top of the beak.
All parts are glued with Tombow Mono adhesive.
I hope you all enjoyed making these as much as we did.
