Congrats from the Forest Friends

I found another SU Demo/Blogger that has a Sketch Challenge. I thought I'd play along. I was feeling inspired by her sample on her blog the called the Techno Stamper.

I started with Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

Layered Certainly Celery Cardstock.

Stamped "Congratulations" from the new stamp set called Well Scripted that is available in the SU Occasions Mini Catalog.

Then I ran a piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Perfect Setting Die.

Next I ran a piece of Certainly Celery DSP through the Perfect Setting Die Cut.

I layered the Certainly Celery DSP paper onto the cut piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock matching up the scalloped edges.

Then I cut a small piece of Chocolate Chip Carstock to layer behind the Certainly Celery DSP paper.

Next I attached this to the card front.

I punched out 3 of the Scalloped Square using Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

Attached these to the card front.

Stamped the Forest Friends using Certainly Celery & Chocolate Chip Classic Inks.

Attached these to the card front.

The picture looks a little dull but I think it turned out SUPER CUTE!! I would LOVE to hear what you think of it!

Punchy Giraffe

How cute is this!!

I have been playing around this weekend. I found a card over at SCS that inspired him. He is all punches, with the exception of his neck which is just a strip of cardstock.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Old Olive & Summer Sun
Big Shot with Leaf template
Punches: 1/4" & 1/2" Circles, 5 Petal Flower, Slit Punch, Extra Large Oval.

Thought he turned out pretty cute!

Cute Little Turtle

This is card #5 for the January 23rd Card Class! Don't think the color turned out very well, I may have to update the picture later but wanted to get this out to share with everyone.
The base is Chocolate Chip cardstock that was texturized through the Big Shot. Next, I used Lavender Lace cardstock to run across the bottom of the DSP Paper (sorry don't remember the name of this retired paper). Then I wrapped the Certainly Celery Ribbon that is also no longer available, tying a knot in the middle. The Turtle is from "Fox and Friends" stamp set available in the new Occasions Mini Catalog that you can begin ordering from on Monday. I punched him out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch & layerd him on top of the Lavendar Lace cardstock punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch.
