Some of you have asked what I presented at Convention and if I could share. For sure I can! Thanks for asking! I was asked to present workshop cards that focus on punches. This was an easy one for me as I love my punches and use them ALL the time! So I decided to do a presentation that focuses on circle punches first and the new stamp set...yes, you guessed it Aviary:)
This first card would be one that I would demonstrate at a workshop and have my customers make this card. It is cute, but simple and offers a technique as well. I call this punch highlighting.
Here is the recipe for this card:
- Pacific Point - 4 1/4 x 9 1/2 scored at 5 1/2
- Old Olive - 1 inch circle
- Whisper White - 3/4 inch circle, Word Window
- Old Olive DSP - 4 1/4 x 2
- Rich Razzleberry - Modern Label
- Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black
- Stamps - Aviary, Family Phrases
- Accessories - Basic Rhinestones, Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals
Don't you love these YUMMY colours together? This next card is my favourite. I love the peek-a-boo window. It uses the same stamps and same colours, just adds a little extra something to the card. The Old Olive measurements are 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 3 1/2 and 7 1/2.
Rather than punch highlighting here though, we are making a little peek-a-boo window. The easiest way to do this is stamp the image on top of the card first then punch out a circle. Using the clear stamps made this way easier. I then stamped the owl through the hole where he should go to sit on the bottom of the cage. Then I stamped the cage around him on the inside and magically it lined up!
The I just stamped all the other cages and birds around this main image. Do you like? Then this opens up to the inside of the card ready for a greeting or another image.
To go along with these, I also showed my Simply Adorned Charm I showed a few weeks back on my blog and the Happy Bird Day scrapbook page. Thanks again for asking and I will share the other two segments over the course of the week.
