Jester Hat Card

I recently purchased the mustache die from SU. Shortly after SU released their retiring list and what do you know, this little die is listed. I thought I better share what I have made with it before it's gone and some of you don't have the chance to get your own anymore.

So my next few posts will all feature the mustache die. Please excuse that some themes of my creations will be a little out of season.

First up, my fun Jester Hat; perfect for any party (also works well for New Years).

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill and Recollections
Ink: Cherry Cobbler - SU, Night of Navy - SU, Crushed Curry - SU, Versamark
Stamps: Let Your Hair Down - SU, Gorgeous Grunge - SU
Die: Oval Framelits - SU
Misc.: white embossing powder, white gel pen, foam mounting squares, 3 x 1/4" rhinestones, 5/8" gold grosgrain ribbon.

Punch art instructions below.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon for more "mustache' creations.

Rose Gift Bags

Last but not least, I have 2 larger gifts for my daughter that would never fit into any boxes I can make myself. I therefore opted to use solid black gift bags and decorate them to match my Goth inspired birthday set.
I attached the decorated doily with temporary adhesive, so the decor can be removed without damaging the bag (although knowing my daughter she will keep them intact as they are).

I made a large bag, (9 x 13'):

 and here are some close ups:

and a made a smaller/medium sized one (approx. 7" x 9"):

and some close ups:

I used 3 punches to make the flowers, my largest used the Fancy Flower punch, the medium roses the Pansy punch and the smallest the Petite Petals. All the roses use the same basic technique, instructions can be found in this post.

I have one last photo to share, the complete set.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections
Stamps: Because you care - SU, Label Love - SU
Punches:Fancy Flower - SU, Pansy - SU, Petite Petals - SU, Blossom Petal
Misc.: paper doilies (8" and 5" - mine are from the dollar store), Pearls, gold shimmer mist, 5/8" black grosgrain ribbon and 1.5" black ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon for some "mustache" inspired punch art.

Goth inspired birthday

No birthday set would be complete without a handmade card. I  opted for smaller roses for this, but still sued the same basic instructions as found here. I made these blossoms using the SU Pansy punch and for the small ones the SU Petite Petals punch.

If you look at the close up you can see that the smaller blossom are not all the same. 3 are made with the Petite Petals, and are 2-3 layers, the other 3 are "buds" only and are made from one single Pansy.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections
Stamp: Remembering Your Birthday - SU
Ink: Memento, Tuxedo black
Die: Spellbinders - A2 Tranquil Moments
Punches: Pansy - SU, Petite Petals - SU, Blossom Petals (builder, 2nd smallest) - SU
Misc.: Gold shimmer mist, 5/8" black organza ribbon, pearls- 4 x 3/8" 4 x 3/16" 2 x 1/16".
Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.

Goth inspired gift boxes

I had intended to publish this post Friday/Saturday but unfortunately my PC crashed and I was unable to access my hard drive for the photos. I cannot even start it up anymore, it immediately crashes (just love that blue screen).
Had to purchase a new PC, admittedly it was time anyways.
Finally got the new PC yesterday (am not sure I am a fan of windows 8).
Please bear with me over the next week as my posts my not all be ready as I had originally scheduled/intended.
I managed to get my latest photos loaded from my camera, Photoshop is installed, MS office is installed ... etc. but there are still things I need to put on this new PC over the next week or so.

Now to my post, I made a couple more Goth inspired gift boxes to match my berry basket from my last post. The roses are all the same design as well.
The hamburger box uses the Blossom punch (instructions found here) and the curvy keepsake box uses the same instructions but with the pansy punch.
