Turtle Punch Art:
This card uses the Grateful Bunch stamp set and matching blossom bunch punch to create a garden pond scene. I used vellum to give the look of water.


The turtle is created using the Fun Flower punch and an extra large oval for the shell.
You just need to cut out one petal from the flower punch as shown below to make the head of the turtle. Glue it to the underneath side of the punched oval and then mount the oval to the rest of the flower using Stampin' dimensionals.


Upright Z Fold Card:
Same layout minus the turtle but using a different card fold.

Inside of card -

Side view so you can see the "Z" fold.

Easter Lamb and Easter Chick

Stampin' Up! has some cute animal stamps that are great for Easter and I have found that they are also great for baby cards too.
Easter Lamb:
This baby boy's card features the easter lamb heat-embossed with white embossing powder and the body, legs, tail and grass all have clear glitter applied. This is very easy to do with the new wink of stella glitter pen.

This little lamb stamp is sold as a single stamp with Happy Easter words as part of the stamp. If you want to use it without the words just place a piece of sticky tape across the words before you ink up the stamp. Make sure you remember to remove the sticky tape before you stamp the image on the card.

This is available until the end of May. Contact me if you would like to purchase one.

Easter Chick:
This chick is from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set which is a free gift in our Sale-A-Bration promotion. It runs until the end of March. The Honeycomb happiness stamp set is great for birthdays, easter and baby cards.

This baby girl card above is done with paper piecing. The image is stamped on patterned paper and then fussy cut.

The baby girl card below is coloured with blender pens and ink.

Next post I will show you how I made this same chick on a gift card for easter.

I brought this "For your country" stamp set to scrapbook an army themed birthday for my son.
It is great for male themed birthday cards also.

Punch Art Fun

I have had a bit of time these holidays to play with my punches and this is the card I made...

This is the process I go through when creating a new punch art. I start off with rough sketches of what I want. And I do mean rough!
Then I try to find punches that are close in shape to my drawings.

For this card, I used the circle framelits and the following punches:
2 1/2" circle, owl builder, tree builder, extra large oval, word window, itty bitty accents, the new blossom bunch, 1/16th hand held circle and 1 1/4" handheld circle punch.
I have put my instruction sheet below. Hopefully you will be able to read it if you want to recreate thisĀ  5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card.

Using lace on cards

This Baptism card is inspired by a sample from our annual catalogue, page35. It has just a hint of crochet trim lace poking through underneath the sentiment.
The sahara sand lace complements the soft look of this watercolour card nicely.
Mint Macaroon dotted lace adds a bit of interest to this Christmas card, made for one of my wonderful downline demonstrators.
Happy Christmas from Rhonda

Handbag gifts
These handmade gifts of a face washer and soap were very popular at the Christmas markets.

A close up of the handbag...

Here is a side view so that you can see how the soap slotted in...

I made handbag "clutch" cards to match.

Inside the card...

Lastly here are some other handbag cards that I have made. The purple one was taught to me by a lady who used to own the Liddle Stamp Shop in Morrinsville.
