Welcome Baby - Baby Bottles

This little design was not planned. The baby bottle came about purely by accident while playing with my Note tag punch.

You may be surprised how fast and simple these are to create. One punch, punched from three different colours and each double punched once. Very quick and easy. After I assembled my little bottles I added a little measurement guide with a pen. The bottles were mounted using foam squares.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Basic Black - all SU
In Marker: Soft Sky - SU
Stamp: A Word For You - SU
Dies: Banner Framelits - SU, Lacey Ovals - Nestabilities - Spellbinders
Embossing folder: Square Lattice - SU
Misc.: 5/8" organza ribbon (blue or pink), foam mountign squares.

Full punch art instructions below.

Chinese Lanterns Note Tag Style

When I played with the Note Tag punch and came up with the soup bowl from my last post I immediately noticed that the punched shape looked like a Chinese lantern. So today I am sharing my card featuring this little creation.

I left this card very clean and simple making the lanterns the focus.
I lightly sponged the blue background I glued to the front of my card. Then strung my lanterns (hung with a little wire loop) on butchers twine and adhered everything with glue dots. I stamped my greeting at the bottom of a 5.25 x 4" white card, cut my die and mounted it over top of my card front using foam squares.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: Art of the Orient - SU,  Feeling Sentimental - SU
Ink: Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip - All SU
Die: Window Framelit - SU
Misc.: black butcher twine, silver wire, foam squares.

Sending You My Love

I have another fast and simple card to share today. I have to say I love the look of step up cards. It's amazing what a difference it makes to have the card front split into 3 sections. It seems to make the items "pop" a lot more than on a simple folded card.
I hope you aren't bored yet with my enthusiasm for the note tag punch because I'm not quite done yet.
Although today's  project is a fast & simple one I have several more involved designs coming up that will probably surprise you. If there is one punch you want to add to your collection I'd definitely recommend this one. The versatility is amazing!
As you can see below, my "punch art" really just consists of folding the note tag and adding a couple of lines in Smokey Slate to create a little mini envelope.
and here are the extra views from left and right angle:

You can see I've even finished the inside of the card, although the little hearts I added in the corners are hard to see. 
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Smokey Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso*, Basic Black - all SU
Ink marker: Smokey Slate - SU
Stamps: Many Happy Returns (greeting and envelope border **) - SU, Distress background - Impression Obsession, Soft Swirls background - SU, Music Notes background - Hero Arts
Punches: Word Window - SU, 1" square for banner tail (PB), various heart punches; these are all older. The largest curved one is an EK Success large Papershaper. The 2nd largest-wide heart on the font panel was a one time exclusive key chain punch (around 14 year old). The larger one used on the side panels is an old All Night Media punch and the little heart is from a Punch Bunch border punch (the heart is in the centre and on either side is a little spray of tear drops). But honestly, any small to medium heart shapes would work for this design.
Misc.: white gel pen, 3 x 1/16" clear rhinestones
* I don 't like when my stamps get stained form black ink. So quite often I use Early Espresso. It's usually dark enough to fool the eye and does not stain my rubber stamps the way black does.
** This stamp set came in 3 large stamps that I cut apart to make into little one line stamps. They all fit the word window perfectly and it makes the border designs more usable.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon for more punch art creations.
