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!!
