Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Punch Art, which is something that is way out of my comfort zone. I mean, really.... in my 12 years of stamping, I can only remember making two punch art cards. EEK! Well, I'm always up for a challenge, so I put my thinking cap on and came up with this little guy.
It took four punches to build him, but I think he turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. I started by building the bunny, then added color to white cardstock with Blending Brushes. After figuring out where to stamp the flowers (using the Ornate Frames Die as reference) I die cut the fancy frame and colored the flowers with Stampin' Blends.
This Playing With Patterns DSP pattern felt Easter-ish to me, so it became the background. The die cut was adhered to the card and the bunny popped up on dimensionals. I was going to draw his nose on, but then I remembered the Resin Heart Embellishments can be colored with Blends, so I made him a pink nose!

Thanks, Deanette! That'll probably be the last one I make for another ten years, LOL.Delete
How did you use the delightful tag top for punch to make the cheeks?ReplyDelete
PJ, I slid a narrow piece of cardstock into the punch so it only punched the little circle (the tag hole). Had to get creative!Delete
