Tonday I have my second Peek-a-Boo card set, this one features an adorable little chick (it reminds me a little of the Suzie Zoo duck).


Again i made a set of 2 cards, but you could sue one image on the front and the other on the inside and make just one card.

Here are the close-ups, front:

Here is the first set of my 4 x 4" Easter gift card sets. This one features a cute little lamb playing Peek-a-boo.


I decided on making a set of 2 cards, but you could easily use one image on the outside of the card and the other on the inside, or even the back. Here is a closer look at the peeking lamb:

Bloom with Hope Birthday Card

I have so many stamp sets that I just had to have but have not had a chance to use. Many of them are images that need to be coloured, which was never one of my favourite things to do. Now that I have my Blendabilities I have to say I am rather enjoying the colouring aspect.
So I thought I'd share another alcohol marker creation.

 
I love the look of the coloured flower placed over the black and white outlined images. It really adds an extra "pops" the design and draws your eye to the red. I wanted to also pop the flower with some foam mounting squares which meant I had to fuzzy cut the image. Not the easiest and next time I will opt to not use 110 lbs card for this. 60-70 lbs would be much easier to trim.


I made the inside to match, choosing one of the smaller flower images in the stamp set.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections
Ink: Tuxedo Black - Memento (fast becoming my favourite black ink)
Alcohol markers: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive - SU Blendabilities
Stamps: Bloom with Hope - SU
Punch: Modern Label - SU
Misc.: Blendabilities colour lifter, 3/8" black and white gingham ribbon, foam mounting squares, 3 x 3/8" rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon. FYI I have 3 more punch art projects for Easter, my 4 x 4 gift cards. The instructions are almost complete so I will be able to share them this week.

Painter Bunny Easter Card

I have three kids, so of course I have a third gift card holder card to share. I created another bunny. He is the same design as the last, one punch, but I posed him differently. I also gave him him a paint brush. He reminds me of the Easter bunnies found in German Easter story books. He's just missing his glasses.


It's harder to tell in the photo, but my pearls aren't white. I used my Blendabilities marker to colour the pearls a light peachy-pink.
I also chose bright hues for this one even though it's a card for one of my sons. It's a bit of a secret, but he loves pink.

I left the inside a little plain, but did carry over the colours.


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: And Many More - SU, All Year Cheer 1 - SU
Die:  Timeless Rectangle - Nestabilities - Spellbinder
Ink: Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black - all SU
Alcohol marker: Skin tone - Blendabilities - SU
Misc.: 5/8" light blue satin ribbon, 3/8" pearls, white gel pen, black marker, foam mounting squares

Full punch art instructions below.


Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon; next will be some 4 x 4' Easter gift cards.

Easter Bunny Card

Today I am sharing my second gift card holder Easter card. This one is a cute Easter bunny. I choose subdued, masculine tones that would appeal to my son more than bright spring colours.


As with my chick, the punch art design uses a single punch (not including the eggs).
I carried the colour scheme over to the inside of the card which holds a gift card.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: misc. scraps
Stamps:Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU, A Little Somthin' - SU
Die:  Oval Framelits - SU
Embossing folder:  Lacy brocade - SU
Punches: Word window - SU, Modern label - SU, Small, wide oval - SU (eggs), Owl punch, see below instructions
Ink: Crumb Cake - SU, Basic Black - SU, Daffodil Delight - SU, Strawberry Slush - SU, Always Artichoke - SU
Misc.: white gel pen, black marker, foam mounting squares, 5/8" tan organza ribbon, 3/16" perals, red/rose chalk
