Happy St. Patty's Day to ya! I have my green shirt on. Got it out first thing so I wouldn't get pinched! :)
I've been having so much fun with my paper punches lately. I wanted to show you a few cards I made.
This one is very simple made with a square, circle and corner rounder punch...
The "M" is cut with my cricut. Then, I just doodled a little and....done.
It's a 4" square note card.
Here's another pretty made with the square punch! Who knew you could make a butterfly with it?
I pierced the trail and the antenna are black metal dots.
I was very proud of myself for using my scallop square punch. I NEVER use that thing!
This card took a little time....
But, only because my big, fumble fingers had a hard time getting the punched owl together!
I used the scallop border, owl and circle punches with this. I used the circle punch to make the cresant shape on the pumpkin pie strip. The large circle is cut with Spellbinders and then embossed with a dots embossing folder. I turned the embossed side inward and then embossed the belly of the owl and turned it outward.
I placed black, satin ribbon over the orange circles and baker's twine (twisted and knotted) behind the owl.
Now, this card I made for the Inspirational Challenge over on SCS today...
Here's the photo I drew inspiration from in making this card:
I love the circles and squares on the wallpaper and the color combination.
I tried to mimic the pattern with my circle and square punches.
I also tried something I never had by punching the edges of the stamped medallion and attaching with twine. I went a little crazy with the buttons and pearls.
Well, there's my punchy madness that's been occurring lately. I have another I'm working on for Sweet P's (Sama ~ SCS) Punchy swap. I will get it posted next week.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
~ Oh, and I thank all of you that have been much in prayer for my Grandmother. She is bed ridden and her condition is deteriorating very quickly. But she has had a good 2 days with hardly any pain. Praise the Lord!!!! She still has a smile for you when you walk to her bedside. She is a dear lady and for 92 years old.....well, let's just say I pray I am as healthy as she has been her whole life and that I make it to that beautiful age. :) ~
I LOVE YOU MAMAW!!!!
Until next time...
