The new 2014 ~ 2015 Stampin’ Up! catalog brought a new selection of ribbons and embellishments. Each year I host a ‘share’ which I call ‘Buttons and Bows”- which runs over 4 months. Last month I shared August’s selection of goodies and I thought I would share those for September!
Those of you who have been following my blog regularly will know I love punch art. The Girl Scout cookie season has just come to an end and it reminded me of a project I did for last years’ cookie season. I was asked by a local troupe of Girl Scouts if I would help them work toward getting their ‘Arts and Crafts’ patch and their leader thought it would be a great idea for them to make thank-you cards featuring a cookie…. this is what I came up with…..

Welcome to the 4th in my series on Punch Art embellishments……… this time I have made a video!!!
I shall be using this on a layout for my Scrap Camp next month, but it will work perfectly for a card front for next Christmas or with a change of colors to, say, pink, it will also make a ‘princess’ for a birthday card front.

The third in my series of punch art embellishments is the graduation owl.
We start with the Owl Punch and some Crumb Cake card stock to make the body then Whisper White and Basic Black to make his eyes. The large flower in the Boho Blossom punch was used to cut Crumb Cake ‘wings’ which was then cut in half. Soft Suede ink was sponged onto the body and wings.
The medium flower from the Boho Blossom blossom punch was used to cut the ‘beak’ in Tangarine Tango card stock then trimmed to a single petal which was attached behind the eyes with a glue dot.
The cap was made by using the oval punch to cut Basic Black then cut in half. Then shaped with 1/2 inch circle punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack. The top of the cap started as a 1″ square then trimmed to make the diamond shape before attaching to the base with a stampin dimensional. The tassle was made with Cherry Cobbler bakers twine, then a white gel pen to make the little ‘twinkle’ in his eye.
He was then was used as an embellishment on the scrapbook page.
