I haven’t been able to craft anything new lately. Been having problems with my back and sitting to craft is just not possible. However, I have some cards I made back in January that I can share. Plus, I need practice in posting 😜.
So I did an All-occasions Critters Punch Art class a while back and gave a set to a friend for her birthday. She loved them and was not planning to give them away, but she did. When she asked me to make another set, but this time make them all birthday cards, I was more than happy to do so.
For this punch art alligator card, I used the MFT Concentric Circles stencil to create the backdrop on black cardstock. I die cut the greeting twice out of white cardstock to give it dimension. I don’t remember which company the die is from.
I love this punch art raccoon so much that I made another card with this cutie for a SSS Wednesday challenge back in February. You can see that card HERE. To create this card I used the balloon edge die from the MFT Die-Namics Blueprints 26. I used SU! Bermuda Bay and Lucky LImeade ink to colour the balloon and just blended them in the centre to get a third green colour. The greeting is from MFT Brushstroke Birthday stamp set. I finished it off with die-cut stars using SSS Mini Stars dies.
This punch art beaver was added to a wood stamped background using the SU! Hardwood background stamp. The stamped sentiment was from the SU! Tin of Cards stamp set. Easy-peasy.
And finally, this punch art fox was created using the SU! Woodlands embossing folder (retired). I brayered SU! Soft Sky ink on the flat side of the embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot. The “wishes” greeting was from the Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set (stretching my stamps whenever I can 😛). I embossed the wishes with white embossing powder on black cardstock, then used the top edger birthday die from MFT Die-Namics Blueprints 26 to complete the greeting.
