Father's Day Card

Pin It!

My Dad is a big Kermit the Frog fan, so when I saw this on Pinterest earlier this year, I knew I had to make it.  I love making punch art cards. Of course, when I went to his house, I forgot to take the card along, so he just saw a picture.  :)  I'll give it to him this week when we meet for lunch.

There weren't any instructions, so I copied the best I could. I used Stampin' Up! ornament punch for his head, heart punches for his tongue, circle punch for his eyes and the pennant punch for under his head. "dad" is from the Family Reunion stamp set and "Happy Father's Day" is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

40th Birthday Card

Pin It!

I made this card for a friend and co-worker that turned 40 last week.  I got the idea for the wine glass from Pinterest.

The card base is Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie.  The wine is Cherry Cobbler. The polka dot paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while back.  The bow on the glass is Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.  The "4" is from a punch set I picked up at a rummage a while back.  I didn't like the "0" in the set, so I punched a 1/2" circle then punched around it with a 3/4" circle.

Just Because Card

Pin It!
This is a card I made for a friend that has had a really hard year.  She has handled it better than most. I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her and how inspiring she has been to me through the events of the past year.  It seems as though she couldn't finish dealing with one thing before being hit with something else.

I used Stampin' Up! papers, inks (Elegant Eggplant), stamp (A Dozen Thoughts) and punch.  The heart is punched from aluminum foil and run through the big shot with an embossing folder.  

Love Card

Pin It!

This is a card a made a few weeks ago while just having some fun creating.

I used Stampin' Up! papers, punches, stamps and inks.....most of which are now retired.

"Realtor" Cards

Pin It!
I have a friend that is a realtor, so I was playing around with making some Thank You card ideas for her and other agents in her office.  I cased the basic ideas from cards I found on Pinterest.

This one is my favorite. The link to the website is no longer available. 

This is the link to the card on Pinterest

This is my 2nd favorite

I pinned the idea for this one, but can't find it.  

and my 3rd

I don't like handwriting "Sold", but otherwise am pleased with it. 

Here's the link to the card I cased. 

All Stampin' Up! products were used except for the stamp in card #3.

Camper Card

Pin It!
I made this birthday card for a co-worker.  It's combination of ideas I got from Pinterest that I've pinned in my Punch Art board.

With having the dark background I should have used grey for the hitch instead of black.

A Few Cards

Pin It!

These are a couple of cards I created while playing with a couple of new stamp sets.

I used Stampin' Up!'s Real Red and Very Vanilla card stock
Tulip Border folder
Sassy Salutations stamp set

I used Stampin' Up!'s Certainly Celery card stock and For Being You stamp set.  I'm not over-joyed with this one.  

My 8 year old granddaughter made this one for her mom.  Sweet and simple.
