I have been having so much fun with the Stampin' Up! punches. I hope to share some of the ideas I have come up with you all over the coming weeks. Here is my punch art penguin. Punches:
Oval punch - for the tummy and wing;
1" circle punch- for the head;
1/4" circle punch - for the eye;
1/2" circle punch- cut in half for the feet;
5-petal flower- cut off one petal for the beak. Card stock:
I also used:champagne mist to highlight the black card stock.
Just to let you all know I have now placed a link on the side bar of my blog to the current Stampin' Up catalogues. I will be posting an e-mail address which will enable you to place an order with me.
I have spent most of the day creating, I am still playing around with the Fox and Friends stamp set! I have also been creating some punch art with the Stampin' Up! punches. I am still amazed what you can make from a few small scraps of paper. I will be sharing some of these tomorrow.
I love this new stamp set from the mini catalogue (117020 page12).
I stamped a whole sheet of whisper white with the stamp set and then cut it up to the sizes I needed.

I went to the shops today and once again came back with what I didn't need. Sainsbury's had a Sale on these pencils with a holder ( just 50p) . Needless to say I bought the lot!
I used paper that has retired from the 2008-2009 catalogue. It made me realise if there is something you really like you should get it before it is gone for good. I scalloped Pixie in Pink card stock with the scalloped border punch and placed it around the top and the bottom of the container. I punched out three scalloped circles and fluffed them up to provide a little more dimension. 3/4" and the 1/4" circle punches were used for the centre of the flower. I finished if off with 1/4" striped Grosgrain Pumpkin Pie ribbon tied in a bow around the whole thing.
I am now a Stampin' Up demonstrator. Over the next few weeks I will put links up to the catalogues etc.
I have done loads of crafting and I will be sharing it with you all soon. My sister and I are running a craft stall in a local community centre tomorrow so we have been VERY busy. I have done so much crafting I have what I am going to term as crafters neck! I am so stiff from leaning over my desk/working on the floor I have managed to hurt my neck/back. I will put up some pictures of our stall tomorrow.
For now here are a couple of the little Easter bags I made for my family 20 in total.
This idea was a Stampin' Up!party I went to. Thank you Amanda!
