So much love in this post! Starting with punch art .. I love my punch art … though I’ve come to realise that my punch art isn’t limited to just punches. I also use quite a lot of ‘die cuts’ – created using framelits, thinlits & edgelits (and of course my trusty Big Shot). Anything that creates a shape contributes to ‘punch art’.
The main punch art shape for this card uses the Curvy Keepsake Box Die to create a cute little mug – what a great idea and a versatile use of an already popular die. Tea is a favourite of mine (have you noticed?), as is the Keepsake Box! This punch art idea was found on another favourite – Pinterest and comes from Vicki Hayes (who is on the Artisan Design Team). You can see it here.
I am also loving participating in challenges at the moment. They are a deep well of inspiration & guidance to give you a start on a project or card. This card was inspired by sketch #158 at Freshly Made Sketches and the colour combination/photo inspiration over at Just Add Ink #236 (two of my favourite weekly challenges). What are your favourites of the moment? I confess that my top loves change regularly. It makes sense though – there’s so much to love! Kelly x
