Today’s project involves another Punch Pal. I have done two variations on a Sweet Pea. I wanted to come up with something cute which would be a good image for a boy or girl. I am a big fan of vegetable and fruit images, so this was right up my alley. I will give the individual shots and then the Tutorial photo’s. Hope you enjoy today’s projects, and I will be back next week with another punch projects.
The card uses Pale Plum, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Basic Black and Kiwi Kiss for the the leaves. The words are made using the Simple Serif Die, and the leaves are cut from the leaf Sizzlet die. The flowers are made using the Flower Trio punch. The sponging is done with Cool Caribbean which is sadly retired, but Tempting Turquoise would also look awsome. Last I used my 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to add the sparkle.
The box is made using my Silhouette die cutting machine. Yes I know, its not Stampin’Up, but it makes boxes and super large letters a breeze. Sometimes I need large letters for banners or signs. The CS colors are Pale Plum, Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, and Kiwi Kiss (for vines which are from the Swirly die). Flowers were made by hand using Pale Plum and Certainly Celery the night before.
The tag was made from Whisper White cardstock with the top corners trimmed down. The ribbon is SU Whisper White Satin Ribbon, the words are from the Simple Serif die and was cut from Basic Black CS, the inks are Kiwi Kiss and Cool Caribbean. The little tab on the end is made from a 1″ circle which was folded in the center and then placed over the end with glue. A hole was then punched out using my Crop-a-dile.
Start by punching out two Wide Ovals out of Certainly Celery, two 3/4″ circles out Certainly Celery and one out of Blush Blossom, and two 1/2″ circles out of Certainly Celery. Next sponge all the Certainly celery pieces with some Old Olive and a touch of Hunter Green. Next take your Blush Blossom piece and sponge in some Rose Red cheeks and add two dots for eyes using your black Stampin Marker. The two small 1/2″ circles will be used to create peas which can act as decorative elements for your other projects.
Next you will take your two Wide Ovals and you will cut one of them in half, and then you will cut a curve into the newly created straight edge. You should now have one whole Wide Oval and two crescents.
Here is where you can vary the look of your baby pea. You can place your face on a stampin’Dimensional and then after glueing down the two crecents to the outside edges of the whole Wide Oval, you can adhere it to the top portion of your pea.
The other option is to glue down one side of the sweet pea crecent, glue your two extra peas, and then glue the top crecent over these. Next you will take your head which is on a Stampin’Dimensional and you will adhere it so that the baby is peeking out from the peas.
Lastly, you are going to take your Signo White Gel pen and you are going to add little highlights. Your Peas are now ready to use. You can embelish tags, gifts, cards or containers.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Tutorial and that you are looking forwards to next weeks.
