Little Sister

It's Terrific Tuesday!!  What's so terrific about it you ask?  Well I have no idea but it is better to be positive than negative.

Yesterday I shared one of the Peanut's characters with you.  It was one I had seen made before but I changed a few of the punched used and made it my own.  Today I want to share another one with you.  I did a search on the internet for images of the characters in order to have a guide to use to help me with them.  This is the first one I made using that guide.  I have never seen her made before so if you have made her don't get all upset for not getting credit.  I really did this based on an image from the internet, not a punch art sample.  Ready?  Let's start!

Do you recognize her?  It's Charlie Brown's little sister, Sally!  But what do I always say?  Let's start at the beginning and work our way up.  

The base card is Melon Mambo cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  Next I added a layer of Elegant Eggplant measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  It is attached using runner adhesive.  For my final layer, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  I took out scrap pieces of Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Daffodil Delight.  I punched out 1/2" , 3/4"  and 1" circles from these scraps and scattered them onto the white.  I attached them to it with a little runner adhesive and ran it through my big shot using the Fancy Fan impression folder.  I attached this to the card using runner adhesive.  Rhinestones were added to the background after the greeting and Sally had been placed.

For the greeting on this one, I chose to use my Curly Cute stamp set.  The greeting is stamped using Melon Mambo ink and cut out by hand.  Once cut, I sponged the edges of the greeting with Elegant Eggplant ink and adhered it to a scrap of Elegant Eggplant card stock.  I trimmed it out by hand being sure to leave an edge around the white.  I attached it to the top of the card using dimensionals.  

Now for the star of our card, Sally.  Here is the recipe I used for her:

Card stock used is Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Blushing Bride (retired)

Head - 1 3/8" circle
Ears, Arms, Legs, Socks, and Sleeves - word window punch trimmed as need for each
Hair - owl builder punch with the feet cut off and the small oval punch
Body - owl builder punch with the feet cut off
Skirt - large oval 
Hands - boho blossom
Shoes - small ovals trimmed to look like shoes

All punches used are current punches so you can get them to make your own Sally.  All pieces were adhered together using a liquid glue.  I then added black marker to the shoes, dress and hair as well as to the face.  I added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the dress and Crystal Effects to the shoes.  I then took a yellow glitter glue I happen to have and added some to her hair.  She is attached to the card using dimensionals.

This is the inside saying.  I added it to the card yesterday too but did not take a photo of it.  It is a stamp I was given a few years ago.  It is not from Stampin' Up! but I like to use it quite a bit.  It is stamped using Melon Mambo ink and the edges sponged with Melon Mambo ink.  It is attached to the card using runner adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed my Sally.  Now I am not sure what I will do for tomorrow so you will just have to stop by to see what I come up with.  Thanks for dropping by today and keep crafting!!
