Fox Builder Punch

Ostrich Greetings
I made this original ostrich punch art using the Fox Builder punch (and Owl Builder punch, just for the eyes.) The legs are hand cut.
The fence posts are classic label punched pieces, cut in half.
Barnyard Babies
There are so many animals that you can make with the Fox Builder punch and it's matching stamp set, Foxy Friends.
Here are some more originals... baby goat, baby pig and baby sheep. They are all made with the Fox Builder punch. The pig's snout is made with a small oval thinlit from the swirly scribbles thinlits. The sheep uses a retired small scallop circle punch behind the head and the body.
A close up of the babies...
Another farm friend -
This rabbit is not original but was inspired by several different cards that I had seen on pinterest.
Thanks for visiting  Rhonda

 

Festive Birthday

Pinata Card
I loved the cute little pinata images on the Festive Birthday DSP (Designer Series Paper) by Stampin' Up!
I thought I might have a go at making a bigger one.
The one that I fussy cut from the DSP, I glued onto the front of the envelope, but first I enlarged the image by 300% and used the enlargement to make my own pinata for the card front.

I used my fringe scissors and very narrow strips of paper. I had to cut extra snips into each cut made by the fringe scissors so it did take some time, but it looks really cute doesn't it?
The balloon stamp is from the sweet stack stamp set.

Best Fishes Card
I love this new "Jar of Love" stamp set. It has 37 stamps!
And with that comes loads of possibilites for creating a big variety of cards.
This fishy card is made using the handle of the jar, as a net-type bag for the fish.
Like the ones the pet stores use...

Throw Confetti Card
This card uses the medium sized jar from the stamp set, stamped on vellum.  The confetti is made with the new "Sprinkles" punch, which you can see on page 187 of the 2016 / 2017 Annual catalogue.

Hello Card
The layout for this pretty card was CASEd from Debby Hughes in the UK. I loved her idea of using patterned paper for the jars.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.

Using Blender Pens

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

I have a couple of cards to show you that are coloured with Blender Pens.
I love using this colouring tool as it works sort of like a paint brush but is used, as its name suggests, like a pen. Picking up ink from my ink pad, I can vary the strength of colour that goes on my card, so I am able to fade and blend colours from dark to light.
These cute birds above are from the new "Best Birds" stamp set.
I have made the trees in the foreground from the woodland embossing folder. It works well with this card, I reckon.

Post note gifts

Here are some post note holders that I made back in March for the ladies that attended my extravaganza.
This is a look at the inside...
And these are the bits needed to make it.
The eyes were adhered to the heart (with raised foam dots) which made the heart into a beak and also made a space for the flap closure, to slot down into.

New Catalogue

Saturday, 04 June 2016

The new catalogue is out now with exciting new stamps, new framelits and punches and of course the new in-colours.

It is sad to say goodbye to old favourites, like Blackberry Bliss (below)...

But we are always happy to see the new in-colours. I have made a card with all 5 colours on.
This card was shown to me by Paula Reid at our On-Stage event.

The colours are (from left to right) Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo.

Vellum Lamp Shade

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Sunday, 15 May 2016

This cute little desk lamp is powered by a battery tea light candle, which sits in a wineglass.

The lampshade is made from vellum and decorated using the new Rosegarden thinlit dies from Stampin' Up!

This idea was taught to a group of us demonstrators at our annual stamp camp by Narelle Hoggard
I will be teaching it at my home at the end of this month - Saturday 28th of May.
Email me to book into this class.

Gumnut babies

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Tuesday, 03 May 2016

Some of you may remember this punch art card that I made about 18 months or so ago.


Well, I got asked to make another one especially for someone who collects all things to do with the gumnut babies. I made her the original and also ended up designing a new one as well.


And I added some gumnut babies inside the cards and on the envelopes.
I hope she likes them.
