Stampin Up! Punch art-crawling baby


Stampin Up! Punch art-crawling baby

I joined a Stampin Up summer swap and this is the punch art I came up with. While its not the only baby punch art that I’ve seen, it is the first one just like this. I used the bird punch for most of the body. I used the wings for arms and legs, and the hands and feet are cut from the little labels punch pack. I was especially happy with how well the little label punch,with just a snip here or there, made perfect little hands and feet. I found out that the cherries from the cupcake punch made perfect ears and  the bow. The eyes came from the candle flame of the cupcake punch. I used a little linen thread for the hair. I used circle punches and a scallop punch for the rest of the baby. I used Stampin Write markers to draw the face, and a dauber to add a little blush to the cheeks. I also inked around some of the edges.


CASE Copy and Share Everything

The card on the left is one I found on Pinterest and I decided to CASE. I made the card on the right.  I used Stampin Up Basic Black and Very Vanilla Card stock, Pearl Basic Jewels(119247), Designer Series Paper from the Modern Medley set (126926), the Decorative Label Punch (120907), and the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402). The flower stamp is from the Best of 25 Years-Flowers set (133342) and the sentiment is from the Lacy and Lovely stamp set (122887) clear mount. I still need to learn how to make professional looking photos of my work like the one on the left!

Butterfly Card Set

We made a set of four cards. Stampin Up Mixed Bunch Stamp set (125537) (clear mount) and Blossom Punch (125603). Embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder (117335). Whisper White card stock (100730) and Real Red card stock (102482). I colored the butterflies with Stampin Write Markers in three colors: Real Red, Blushing Bride, and Tangerine Tango. I made the antennae using linen thread (104199). My daughter Joni (also a stampin Up demo) showed me how to make these cards. I am not sure where she got the idea, so if you originally created this idea, please let me know and I will be happy to give you credit.
