Lotus Blossoms

I have to take a little break form punch art this week in order to play with some of my new SU toys.
First up is my try at the Lotus Blossom SAB stamp set.

I absolutely love this stamp image and after seeing various lovely creations had to have it.

I discovered that this is one stamp you definitely need to experience with in order to get the desired distinct three shade effect. I had the best results when using black as my darkest colour.


I found that the contrast between my light and dark colours was not sufficient and had to stamp off the lightest to get it just right.

Here's a peek at the finished inside of the card as well. I opted for a third colour combination.
 

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white, 110 lbs
Ink: all SU - Real Red (stamped off once), Cherry Cobbler, Perfect Plum (stamped off once), Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango (stamped off once), Cajun Craze, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke
Stamps: Lotus Blossom - SU
Embossing folder: Elegant Lines - SU
Die: Apothecary Accents - SU
Misc.: 5 x 3/16" pearls, foam mounting squares

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon.

Spring Duck Curvy Keepsake

I have another adorable little treat wrapper made with the Curvy Keepsake die to share. This time it's a bit of a spring theme, but he'll work great for any little kids' theme.

Isn't he just the cutest thing?  And he's very fast to assemble as there are few punched shapes and even less trimming of the shapes than most of my designs. Here is a quick side view.


This time I filled the wrapper with two York's Peppermint Patties. But as already noted with my previous treat wrappers, these can hold many different items.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: all SU - Daffodil Yellow, Tangerine Tango
Die: Curvy Keepsake - SU
Punches: various see below instructions
Misc.: foam mounting squares -  to attach the feet

Full instructions below.


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you soon for a "Toadally" sweet Springtime creation.

Birthday Clown Curvy Keepsake

At last I have a chance to share my clown Curvy Keepsake treat wrapper. I have to say he is my favourite so far. With his fun outfit and bright and cheery colours he's ready for a celebration.


And here's a quick side view. As you can see a TicTac package easily fits inside his tummy. I'm sure a little toy (the kind you can find in the dollar store party supply section) would fit really nicely as well.


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: all SU - Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango
 Embossing folder: Argyle - Cuttlebug
Die: Curvy Keepsake
Punches: see full instructions below
Misc.: Black marker, red/rose blush for cheeks

 Full punch art instructions below:


Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon for great Spring inspired creations.

Baby Shower Curvy Keepsake

This sweet little baby treat wrapper would be perfect for a baby shower. He can easily be turned into a baby girl, or if the gender is still unknown use yellow, green or purple for the sleeper.

 

Mine is holding a pack of mint TicTacs, but any small candy or treat will work.
This little fellow is actually rather quick to put together once you've got the pieces punched.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: all SU - Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry.
Die: Curvy Keepsake - SU
Punches: see below detailed instructions
Misc.: black marker, red/blush chalk.

Full instructions below:


Thanks for stopping by! Hope to you see you again soon.
