Santa – Punch Art


This Santa card has been made using punches and an oval die…

Santa Punch Art

Here are the instructions of how to make it

I started with a piece of whisper white card 12cm x 12cm and arranged the following pieces onto it…

Face – very vanilla card – cut freehand

Hat – real red – cut freehand

Hat rim – whisper white card – cut freehand

Hat bobble – whisper white – 1 3/4″ circle punch – sponged with sahara sand ink. Raised using dimensionals

Moustache – whisper white – 2x 1 3/8″oval punch – sponged with sahara sand ink

Eyes – basic black – itty bitty circle punch

Cheeks – pink pirouette – 3/4″ circle punch

Nose – real red – oval die – sponged with sahara sand ink. Raised using dimensionals

(white highlight on the nose – pushed out piece from a butterflies thinlits die)

Mouth – basic black – oval die

When completed I mounted it onto a piece of sahara sand card and then placed onto my card base.

I hope you have as much fun as I did, making this card.

Snow Flake Triple Time Stamping


The card I have to share with you today, uses a technique called triple time stamping…

I have also entered this card into the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge this week.

I stamped over three layered square pieces of white card at the same time

and then sponged the edges before layering with coloured card.

To finish, I added a lush bow and rhinestones.

Paper Blocking


I had such fun entering into the 52 (Christmas Card) Throwdown Challenge last week,

I could not resist having another go.

So here is my entry…

Paper Piecing 1

This weeks was a sketch challenge, using patchwork or paper blocking techniques.

Firstly I rotated the layout of the sketch (it didn’t say I couldn’t) and this allowed me to accommodate my Christmas mittens, houses and trees, all that were pieces of scrap from my left over Christmas papers.

To finish off I added a red satin ribbon and tag with a sentiment.
