Bird with Flower Punch Art

P1050633 
Hi Everyone! Thanks to my weekend Hostesses Judy and Janelle!!! I'll share with you what we made a little later in the week. This card was inspired by a spring towel found at Kohls! The sentiment is from Fun & Fast Notes 11350. I used Melon Mambo 121074 Stampin' Marker to ink just the saying. I ran the punch art through the Big Shot 113439 using the Perfect Polka dot embosser 117335.

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight. I was crafting at a friends and the rest were from her cardstock stash. But we could use Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Black and Melon Mambo.

Ink: Pumpkin Pie for sponging around the bird. Melon Mambo marker.

Punches:
120906 2-1/2" Circle
121808 Blossom Petals ( for tail and beak. smallest 2 petals used.) For tail, snip the ends of the petal. Used for flower leaf.
119868 1" Circle - cut in half for wing, 1 full for center of flower
117191 Bird punch  - branch used for flower stem
118073 Fancy Flower

Fun Flowers using Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric

VID01257 
 Hi Everyone! OMGoodness these fabric flowers are so easy and stinkin' cute! Love them! I finally got one of my 'roundtoits' in making these flowers using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die 121812. (die exclusive to Stampin' UP!) PLUS it matches Springtime Vintage Designer Paper 121782 to make a totally coordinated gift-giving package.

P1050608

 Springtime Vintage fabric 121817 was used along with Rose Red 1/2" Seam Binding 121884 and Marina Mist 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon 119772. 
 
I tried a variety of layers: single, double, and triple of each of flower shapes. 

Fabric stiffner was used to give the flowers a little more structure. It's not needed but that's my personal preference.

 Video tutorial below. Happy Crafting! ~ Dee

Luz's Bunny Board...Greetings Puerto Rico!

Gobernador Pi+¦ero-20110321-00059Hi Everyone! Imagine my surprise when I found out a very nice lady from Puerto Rico ordered from me!!! The internet is truly amazing and allows people from all over the world to connect with each other. Luz ordered some Gobernador Pi+¦ero-20110321-00057 punches to make my Punch Art Bunny (click here to see posting and here to go to the video) . Gobernador Pi+¦ero-20110321-00058 She emailed me saying she was going to make ~50 bunnies for her bulletin board. She also used the Modern Label punch to write each of her students name on the bunnies. And I love the pretty butterflies around the border and the big bunny in the center. Thank you so much Luz for sharing your creations with us! I'm sure your students love the bunnies you made for them. Thanks for the pictures!
