I was asked to make a couple of projects with the ladies auxilary of our volunteer fire department. I used some of the punch art characters from my Cute Critters and More Cute Critters punch art classes to make plant sticks that the ladies can stick in a pot of spring flowers. To make the sticks I used the head and body of the punch art characters and glued them onto a wooden stir stick.
I saw this card today as I was browsing through a card magazine at Walmart and wanted to try it with my Stampin' Up supplies. The stamp set is Loving Thoughts. I also used the Hearts Framelits and the Typeset Alphbets Bigz dies. I used Black Stazon and Smokey Slate Classic Ink and stamped each color three times without reinking my stamp in between. It's hard to see in the photo but I wanted to hide the holes in my Vintage Faceted Designer Button so I embossed a glue dot with Silver Embossing Powder and stuck it to the centre of the botton when the glue dot cooled.
I made this set of cards with the square framelits. I lined the framelits up as evenly as I could on two pieces of card stock and ran them through the big shot. Since I alternated the colors I had enough squares for two cards.
I used the square framelits and the Pansy Punch to make this simple window card. My fringe scissors are on back order but if you have a pair they would work great for the grass. The flowers flop a bit when you move the card but you can't really tell that from the photo. I cut a narrow strip of window sheet and covered it with washi tape to make the stems. I attached the stems to the bottom of the card and attached the punched flowers ONLY to the stem not the card so they can move.
When I need a card for a special occasion and don't have a suitable stamp I usually head for my punches. I made this graduation card using the new Triangle Punch. I colored one of the Silver Mini Brads with a black sharpie, poked a hole in the centre of the cap and inserted the brad along with the tassel. The tassel is made from White Baker's Twine. If you don't know how to make a tassel scroll down and have a peek at the video tutorial
