I updated my palm tree look by using the stem from a Marvy Luchida Large Flower Pot Craft Punchas the tree trunk.
I used the flower pot part of the punch to make the sand pail. Make a “doughnut” with graduated circle punches to make the handle. I used a EK Success Egg Punch (1/2”) and the handle from a Punch Bunch Basket Punch to make the shovel.
For the sand castle I again used the egg punch to make the doorway and windows. To make the towers I used a small tag punch, trimming the top of the tag and then using the egg punch to make the arrow slots. For the flag I cut down a Stampin’ Up Bitty Banner Punch out down.
Here are the really cute mini sunglasses punch art I designed for my Stampin’ Up Owl Builder Punches that I decked out for the beach because what self-respecting owl would be seen dead at the beach NOT wearing some shades?
THANKS SO MUCH FOR TAKING A LOOK!
My Stampin’ Up Owl Builder Punches All Decked Out For Summer!
I promise to share how I made their sunglasses (from 4 letter “D” punch outs) soon and I’ve already shared the beach ball punch art. This one is made in the same way – only the heart and the circle punches I used were smaller.
Thanks for taking a look – let me know what you think. And why not share your summer clad owls with me.
I made these daffodils with the Marvy Clever Lever Floral Punch Set. This is a great punch except it jams easily if you try to punch only one shape at a time. It might be worth the “wasted” paper to punch all the shapes at one time. But keep the spare parts because one day you may think of a use for a green flower, etc. (I’ll let you know if that happens to me!!!). This is a hard punch to find now but as of the time of this post Oriental Trading Company if carrying them.
I also used a Recollection mini flower punch and a small flower punch from Paper Studios for the centers of the daffodils. I punched the centers darker or lighter than the flower and then used an adhesive foam dot to attach it to the main flower. For the small flower you may have to cut the dot so it doesn’t stick out past the center. Using a foam dot makes it look more like a daffodil as the flower has some dimension.
I used a light blue greeting card and a strip of dark brown paper cut to fit the card. I then tore the top of the brown strip to make it look more like soil. You could also further embellish the card with a sun and butterflies.
Here’s a another cute card I just made. This one is an spring scene complete with bunnies and eggs. How’d I make eggs so tiny? I used a paw print punch. Super cool!!!
Thanks for taking a look,
Here’s a cute card I did for St. Patrick’s Day. I didn’t have a clover punch as big as I wanted and haven’t yet gotten a die cut machine so I used 4 Martha Stewart heart punches and the branch from my Build-a-Bird Stampin Up Punch (for the stem). I love this in that I can make the four leaf clover as big as I have a heart punch. You could also use a smaller heart to layer the leaves for more depth.
Thanks for taking a look!
This tree is made with an EK Success fir tree punch and a Fiskars’ cloud punch (I don’t know the size but the punch out measures a little under 1″).
