Snappy Birthday

And as you've probably already guessed today I have another note tag punch creation.
This time I made a little camera that is the focus of this cute birthday card.

As I opted for a step card I have two more photos showing the card from slight left and right angles for a bit fo a different view of the details.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Basic Black and Early Espresso - both SU, pearl white - Club Scrap
Stamps: By Definition Background - SU, Print Pattern Background - SU, Wacky Wishes - SU, Perfect Punches - SU
Die: Little Letters Thinlits - SU
Punches (otehr thna punch art): Word Window - SU, 1" square - SU (for banner tails)
Misc.: Foam mouting squares, 4 x 1/4" clear rhinestnes, 1 x 1/4" red rhinestone.
Full punch art instructions for the camera below.

Mantel Clock Punch Art

I have another quick little punch art card using the new Note Tag punch from SU.
This time I've made a little mantel clock. You can add details to it using small border stamps, or border punch pieces as I did. I hand drew the clock face, but if you happen to have a stamp around 3/4" to 1 1/4" in size that would work wonderfully.

I used a border punch to create a little carved details on my clock. You can see what the full punch shape looks like on the right hand side of my card. It is made by Punch Bunch (PB) and is called "Crown border". PB is closing down but you should still be able to find this border punch for purchase online. I used a nailhead circle frame (old stash) to secure the clock face, but you could just mount the 12" circle on top of a 1 1/4" circle for a framed look. The face and 2nd layer of the clock or foam create more depth. I also foam mounted my greeting.

This is just a thought, but could see how this mantel clock design can easily be turned into a grandfather clock for a scrapbook page border by adding a long piece with a door between the bottom of the clock and the curved foot/base.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill (I think the green is celery). The card base is actually ivory but it doesn't show well in the photo.
Ink: chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, both SU
Stamps: French Script background - SU, Express Yourself - SU
Embossing folder: Woodgrain - SU
Punches: Crown border - PB, 1" circle - SU, Note Tag - SU, 1" square (banner tails) -SU, 1/2" circle - SU
Misc.: 1" brass frame nailhead, brown butchers twine, foam mounting squares, black marker.

School Days Note Tag Style

Today I am sharing three simple punch art creations using the note tag punch. Note that the backpack is the pefect size for most paperdolls. I realize this is a littel late for back to school, but the punch art could easily be used on a card, gift tag or gift box for a teachers gift, or a scrapbook page featuring school photos.

I apologize, the card is a rather simple and fast one meant just to showcase the three pieces.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamp: (note paper) Stampology - Autumn Leaves
Punch: spiral binding - SU
Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Marina Mist - all SU
Misc.: black marker
Punch art instructions for all three pieces below.

Thanks a Latte

I have a quick post to share before calling it a night. This one is a fast and simple one inspired by my beer mug. You may not have much use for a beer mug/ice cream float but don't write off that basic design just yet. A hot beverage like coffee, tea or hot cocoa can be featured on many different cards for various occassions.

And this is very fast and simple as it requires only one punch. For the hot steam you can use a die like I did, a stamp or hand draw some swirls.
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Marina Mist - all SU, pearl white - Club Scrap
Stamps: Hello Doily - SU, Latte Love - Fiskars
Dies: Apothecary Accents - SU, Flourish 11 - Sizzix
Punch: Large Lace - SU
Embossing folder: Devine Swirls - Cuttlebug - Provocraft
Misc.: foam mounting sqaures, white gel pen, 4 - 1/4"black rhinestones

More projects coming this week.
Here's a sneak peek so to speak
