Turkey Time #2

I wanted to give this Turkey a little more personality, so I put some googley eyes on him. He looks so much better this way. I apologize for the lack of posting, I have had an appointment every night this week. Sometimes life just gets in the way of stamping :-(
See previous post for supply list. Thanks :-)

Tab Punch Pumpkin

I saw this on Splitcoast and just had to give it a try. Very Easy. I have searched Splitcoast but I can't find the photo to send you to the link, Sorry :-( If I come across it I will post it for everyone. I punched 16 tabs and folded them in half and then began to stick them together with Snail Adhesive. I used a brown & green pipe cleaner. When it was time to put the pipe cleaners in the center, I first put a strip of sticky strip on the inside spine of tabs and then I used extra sticky strip to put the last tab together for extra support.

Supplies: Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, Tab Punch, Snail Adhesive, Sticky Strip, & Pipe Cleaners.

Turkey Feather Folding

1. Count off 5 scallops and fold. (made a line so you could see) scoring this line is helpful.
2. Fold in half to make a center line. I scored this also.
3. Fold bottom left in towards center line.
4. Fold bottom right in towards center and behold a Turkey Feather!

Hope this helps!

Turkey Time

This is a fun Turkey to make and very easy. Not much stamping here, he is made with punches! I thought I would give him a little extra flair by using the Autumn Vine DSP.
Turkey feathers: Scallop Circle Punch, Count five scallops and fold that portion of the circle down. Turn the circle over and fold in half to form crease in the middle for reference then unfold. Fold flat edge down from each side so folded edges line up with the middle crease.
1-3/8" Circle for the body, 3/4" Circle for his head, two 1/4" circles for buttons, Double Circle Punch for the eyes, 3/4" Square trimmed down for the hat, Boho Blossoms for his feet, petal from one of the flowers for his beak. I added some half circle scallops behind the DSP feathers to make him look a little fuller.

Supplies: Stamps: Holidays & Wishes. Cardstock: Really Rust, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, & Autumn Vine DSP. Ink: Really Rust. Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 3/4" Square Punch, Double Circle Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch, & Boho Blossoms Punch. Choc. Chip Taffeta Ribbon.

Another Thanksgiving Card

I really love this set and the Pumpkin is my favorite. So, I decided to add the pumpkin using the masking technique. On watercolor paper I stamped the corn/jar with Brown Stazon. Stamped same image on a post it note at the top of note where it's sticky on the other side. This will help hold it in place when it's time to stamp the pumpkin. Trim the post it note to match and stick to watercolor paper and then stamp Pumpkin in brown stazon. Cut out unwanted background and watercolored with ink pads. The edge of the So Saffron was done by using the Scallop Edge Punch. Just flip over the punch so you can see the corner and align then punch and you get an interesting corner. Splatter in the background was done with the color spritzer with Really Rust Marker. To get the curly swirls from the pumpkin, used Choc. Chip marker on swirls only and lined it up with the stamp-a-ma-jig. (I LOVE MY STAMP-A-MA-JIG)

Supplies: Choc. Chip, Really Rust, Sage Shadow, So Saffron cardstock. Watercolor paper. Autumn Vine DSP.
Ink: Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Choc. Chip, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Brown Stazon.
Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop Rectangle Die, Scallop Edge Punch, Corner Rounder, Sponge, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Color Spritzer Tool, Choc. Chip & Really Rust markers.

Baby Shower Card

Our good friends Darren and Angie are expecting their first child (It's a Boy!) 12-02-08. Going to the Baby Shower tomorrow. I like making the Onsie, it's just too cute and easy to make. Start with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock. Card size will be 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 5 1/2". Using 1 3/8 circle punch at top of score center punch and make the neckline. I go half way in on the punch. Next I cut out the legs with the circle punch. Neckline and leg trim made using the coluzzle. If making for a girl, the scallop punch makes a frilly neckline & leg trim. Embossing folder for some texture and a sentiment. To complete the look some eyelets to look like snaps.

Supplies: Whisper White & Bashful Blue cardstock. Bashful Blue Classic Ink. Punches Three Hostess Stamp Set. Bashful Blue Eylets, Crop-a-dile, Stampin' Dimensionals, Coluzzle, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Big Shot, Embossing folder "dots", Wide Oval Punch.
