Funky Pumpkins using Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper

Pumpkin Punch ArtHi Everyone! Todays card was inspired by some funky pumpkins I got over the weekend. I love the crazy looking ones. So I thought why not make a funky pumpkin out of the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper out of the Holiday Catalog! Below is this card in mass production mode! It will be used in an upcoming swap. What's great is that it doesn't take a lot of paper and it was fun to mix and match the patterns within the Designer Paper to put together all kinds of funky pumpkins!.

DSCN6152I can't officially call it punch art because I used the Layering Oval Framelits. So I guess it's die cut art! Ink around the edges to make each section pop.

DSCN6151General Instructions – Die cut the ovals. Ink around the edges with a sponge dauber and Cajun Craze Classic Ink. Glue ovals together. Free hand cut stem and vine. Glue in the back. Run Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Big Shot using Pretty Paisley Embossing Folder. Ink raised images. Stamp and punch sentiment. Add Gold Thread and Linen Tread behind.

Materials:
Rich Razzelberry Cardstock 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Very Vanilla Cardstock 4 x 5-1/4
Scraps of Cajun Craze and Mint Macroon Cardstock

Must Have Mondays – Circle Punches & Apple Punch Art Tutorial

 

Apple Punch ArtHi Everyone! My home PC has gotten new life and I should be good-to-go again…yeah! I hate to admit it, but I struggled using hubby's new laptop. The left and right click areas blended in with the area to move the mouse around and I couldn't get it to react that way I needed. (giggle) why do they all have to be SO different? hahaha

Today's Must Have Mondays is circle punches. Which ones? all 🙂 Purchase them over time until you have all sizes. Circle punches are great as you can use them to punch out images and sentiment and layer them unto your projects for interest. Also used in treat boxes to create holding space for K-Cups (project shown above and see the post on how to make here). They are also key shapes to punch art.

The 1-3/4" Circle Punch was used for both the apple punch art in this project. It's a great size to get started on a circle punch collection! My punch is the old style from Stampin' UP!

To make the Apple Punch Art - use the template below to make your apple shapes. Take the White Gel Pen to make a highlight.
