Sale-a-bration Punch Bunch

This is the card that we made for February's club meeting. It isn't my usual style. but it was fun and everyone seemed to like it. There were tons of new things that they hadn't tried yet on this card.  Almost everyone of them picked this stamp set for their free set.
  • The card base is Crumb Cake onto the front of the card we splattered Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie ink. We did this by filling the large tipped Aqua Painter with Rubbing Alcohol and picking up reinker ink and flicking it onto the card front. We stamped the swirled image from Elements of Style in both Early Espresso ans Pumpkin Pie. Then splotchy sprayed shimmer paint spray here and there.
  • We layered a piece of Peach Parfait DSP on Early Espresso CS, punched the edge with the Scallop Trim Boarder punch. then cut a V from the bottom of it and attached it to the card front.
  • We used markers to color the poppies, using Old Olive for the stems and Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade for the flower. This was stamped onto Very Vanilla CS and punched with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  We added Sticky strip to the back of the image and pleated Early Espresso Satin ribbon around the edge of it.  This was added to the card front with Dimensionals.
  • We used Crumb Cake Seam Binding to make the ruffled bow, this was done by tying a bow and then fraying the ends and pulling one of the frayed threads to make it ruffle up. We attached this with a Mini Glue Dot.e
  • We chose a phrase from Tiny Tags and stamped the on Very Vanilla and punched with the Jewelry Tag punch. and tied it to the bow with Linen Thread.
So a lot went into the cards but I think they turned out pretty, the girls were able to try so many products and techniques with this card.  I hope you enjoy the card. The idea for this card came from here.
