These are a few of the punch art creations I wanted to start with. I can tell you that little cat in the picture is a big hit with a lot of my customers. I will go through these a couple at a time.
I made a bunny similar to the girl in this picture for an Easter card. She is just too cute and I think she would be great even on a birthday card. I wanted to be fair and make a few boys too. These are pre-glitter (you didn't really think I would go without glitter did you?). The girls get little bows in their ears while the boys have bow ties. Too cute!!
I have to be honest, the wreath is upside down in this shot. The bow goes on the bottom. I will be posting a card later this week that uses this wreath. I learned to make it last year from Dawn Griffith. I made Christmas Cards using it. The other day I happen to see one of the cards that was left over and thought I could use the design for other occasions. So this one is for Halloween. The dress is something new for me. I happened upon a video by Bonnie Mountford. I thought these were so cute and wanted to make one right away. I took dance when I was young and this actually reminds me of a costume I wore for a performance. I could see using this on a scrapbook page or on a card for a little girl or even a big one. I plan on making more in other colors.
Last but not least, here are my final critters I worked on. The cat you have seen before since I have used it on cards already. The elephant is the one I used on the get well card I made for my aunt. The puppy is new. Another inspiration from Ellen Kemper. I could not help but smile when I saw him. I do plan on making him in black since my little dog, Sadie, is black.
I also made a cute little penguin this weekend. While it is not in the photographs, I promise you will see him this week on a card. I worked on some other items too but did not want to overwhelm you with them. I will share more as I get them done. All those coming to my crop this weekend will be able to see these in person and may purchase them or place an order for them. I can hardly wait to see everyone.
Well I have bored you long enough. I best get back to work. Thanks for stopping in today. Please come back tomorrow.
