Tuesday a week ago the challenge at splitcoaststampers was a color challenge. the three colors suggested were Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichokes, and pretty in pink. I love cherry cobbler (red) it is so yummy.
Last Monday on splitcoaststampers there was a challenge to use ribbon some way other than a knot or a bow. I used about 2 inches of ribbon with some wire and beads to create this fun butterfly. check out by clicking on splitcoaststamper for all there fun challenges.
Another 3x3 note card to say thanks to a special customer. This time I used the owl punch again but trimmed off the ears and feet to make a small vase. I used the two step extra large bird punch for the branches and the itty bitty shapes punch pack for the flowers.
When I was clearing off my workspace I found two more owls for the Stampin Up owl punch. I am lovin this punch. the "New" 2 3/8 scallop circle (extra large) punch is awesome. I try to stamp some 3x3 thanks you note cards with the scraps left out on my table.
I seem to go straight to my bird punch I just love it. The white first layer is dry embossed with a texture plate as well as the circle punch. the bird punch is done in three pieces bird body in DSP, wing and tree branch in card stock. I sponged around the wing and added rind stone crystal brads.
Today is my Mom's Birthday, "Happy Birthday Mom". This is the crochet afghan I made for her. The bright flowers go great with her smile. Mom loves to read and this afghan is the prefect size for her to cover up with and enjoy her afternoon read.
Charming little pink flowers on a branch. Pink flowers punch with itty bitty shapes punch pack from Stampin Up. added sparkles for center of flowers and a delicate ribbon knotted bow with hat pin. Very soft card.
