Flip over calendar ~ September Sunflowers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

So here we are in September, back in the UK things would start to be cooling down, the nights drawing in and there would be misty mornings. Not so in North Texas ~ after living here for 20 years the only thing there is in common is the days are getting shorter, but they are still hot and dry!

In the early part of last December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another later this year! I thought I might start each month this year by posting the page for that month, so today I share, September which has vibrant Sunflowers!

Punch Art 2 ~ Bear

Here is the second in my series of punch art embellishments, this is based on ‘Bertie Bear’  by Pat Carr (an Australian SU designer)

As you can see the Owl punch has come into play again for the body and the little fur tuft on the top of his head.  The arms and feet use the ‘wing’ from the Bird Builder Punch.

All the pieces are cut from Crumb Cake and were sponged in ‘Soft Suede’ ink.  The nose and tuft were cut from Soft Suede card stock.  I used the Chocolate Chip stampin marker to put on his features and cute little toes.

This turned out to be a very versatile embellishment as I used the him for a recent scrap book layout:


…..  as well as a card for my recently arrived great-niece, Isla
