NEW Princess Dress Punch Art Debut

Ok....I couldn't stand it!

I've been working on this new project all evening and I just can't go to bed without at least showing it to you.  I'm SO excited!!!

Here's the brand new...HOT off the presses (or my desk anyway...) Suitably Punched-Disney Princess Punch Art Dress.....

"Elsa" from Disney's "Frozen"


I shot this quick photo of the completed project so I could get it posted here on my blog.  I promise you there will be more photos with close up shots too.  I took the photos for the tutorial as I went so "Elsa" will be joining the other Disney Princesses here on my Tutorials For Sale page.
If you'd like to see the princesses that are available, just click the link at the top of the page.
I guess I should post "Anna" here too so that "Elsa" feels right at home.

 Thanks so much for stopping by.  Come back soon!

Wishing you a magical day,

Michelle

Carrots and Candy and Bunnies...Oh My!

Hey there, Peeps!

Wowzer!  Are we ever getting a soaking rain here today?  I'm so happy to be here in the studio where it's dry and looking out the window at all of the blooms popping up out there.

Today I'm sharing a sweet Easter ensemble with you.  The little "carrots" are my take on the traditional "sour cream" containers.  I made them a little  more elongated so they looked more like carrots.  These carrots are filled with malted Easter eggs. Mmmmm!  The "greens" on the carrot tops are made using just a scrap of green card stock and my awesome "Fringe Scissors".


The card measure 4" x 4" and it so sweet in person.  I stamped the little bunny and greeting from the "Eggstra Spectacular" stamp set.  It's just precious.


I took a coordinating piece of the "Watercolor Wonder" Designer Series Paper and used my Envelope Punch Board to create a fun, little envelope too.  How fun is THAT?

Are you ready for this weekend's festivities?  I'm excited to have our family together for Easter dinner and just enjoy each other's company.

Be sure to check out the Weekly Deals that were announced today.  You can order yours at my Online Store by just CLICKING HERE

Ok...I'm off to get a little organizing done in the studio.

Wishing you a magical day,

"Roxie Red Robin" - New Punch Art Critter

Hey Peeps!

I just had to pop in and share this with you.  I've been working in the studio non stop today and I just couldn't wait to show the NEW addition to the "Suitably Punched Critter" Collection.

Please help me welcome "Roxie Red Robin"...


I saw a couple of plump robins outside my window today and I just had to create one for the SPC Collection.  I love that she's sitting patiently and waiting for her new babies to hatch.  "Hello, Spring!"

Since it's almost midnight here....I will sign off for now.  Before I go, I want to tell you about a very special offer.  The very first customer to place an order at my Online Store after this post goes "Live" will receive this ORIGINAL punch art critter design as my gift.  I've never given away and a original design before but I'd love to share Roxie with someone special.

So....will "Roxie" be flying to your house?  We'll have to wait and see who is first.

Wishing you a terrific Thursday,
Michelle

Vintage "Bella" Nursery Punch Art Decor

Hello my friends,  Happy Tuesday!

I had such a great day in the studio today.  I did a few new sketches for upcoming projects that I'm just itching to create and share with you.  The project that came to life today is one that's been in my head for a couple of weeks now.  Actually, it was one of the first projects I sketched out when I got the "Hardwood" Background Stamp in my original order from the Occasions Catalog.  It is absolutely SO versatile and is a stunning addition to all kinds of projects.  Have you ordered it yet?  If so, I'd love to see what you've come up with.  Send me your photos.  If not, you can get one of your own at my Online Store.  (Hardwood Background Stamp:  Wood Mount #133032/Clear Mount #133035)

Here's what I came up with...
It's a framed decor piece that's perfect for a nursery with a vintage feel.

I created it as a 5" x 7" piece and when I went to find a frame at my local craft store, this one just jumped right off the shelf at me.  LOL  It's perfect!  The background DSP that looks like a white/brown wallpaper, is from the "Fresh Prints" Designer Series Paper Stack in the Occasions Catalog (Item #132996)  I LOVE that stack!  The dresser is made with Coastal Cabana card stock (Item #131297) and the Hardwood Stamp was inked with Baked Brown Sugar Ink (Item #131174).  I used the same ink to sponge the edges to give it a distressed feel.  The little dress is made with one of my favorite punches...the Owl Builder Punch (Item #118074).  I also used the 1 1/4" Scallop Punch (Item #127811) for the dress ruffle and the 1" Circle Punch (Item #119868) for the "Bloomers".

The mirror over the dresser was made using a scrap of Soft Suede card stock (Item #115318) and a scrap of the Silver Foil Sheet (Item #132178).  I embossed the Soft Suede oval with the Oval from the Designer Frames Embossing Folders (Item #123130) and the Silver Foil oval is punched out using the Extra Large Oval Punch (Item #119859).

The name banner was created by printing out the letters of the name on Whisper White card stock (Item #100730) and then they were punched out using the little banner punch.  I used a piece of the Silver Baker's Twine as the anchor for the banner (Item #132976).  It really tied in well with the "bling" on the dresser drawer pulls.  

I have to tell ya....I'm already thinking of a couple of gifts I need in the very near future for a couple of baby showers.  I think these would be really sweet gifts to give.  Don't you?

I hope you've enjoyed today's project.  Before I go, I want to share the "Weekly Deals" with you.
I can't believe that there are actually punches that I still don't own!!  The little punch trio is at the top of my order this week.  What's on yours?

My Online Store is open 24/7....the lights are always on and there's never a line.
Stop by and shop til you drop.  CLICK HERE TO SHOP NOW

Wishing you a magical day,
