Punch Art and Word Bubbles Just Go Together

Elmo Punch Art

Punch art has always been fun to me so the Word Bubble Framelits from the Celebrate the Everyday catalog got me very excited to make this card!  I was quite sad when my kids grew out of this stage of cartoon characters and Nick Jr TV shows.  I think I enjoyed them as much (or even more) as they did!  Elmo here was a breeze to put together with Stampin’ Up!’s punches!  The little polka dot paper from the Kaleidoscope DSP in the new catalog was great for this card so I just had to use the new Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE with a $50 order!) in the new Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I also used the new Banner Punch, (also FREE with a $50 order) for more fun on this cute card.  So, want to see the inside?

Punch Art InsideI forgot to photograph it before I finished it.  I want to start doing a better job on the insides of my cards so I have to share them, right?  Now, a photo of the beautiful little 2 year old who received this card today – NORA!

Watercolor Wonder-ful


Watercolor WonderWhat a cheerful card this one turned out to be, using the new stamp set, Perfect Pennants, and Watercolor Wonder designer paper from Celebrate the Everyday catalog.  I am submitting this card to this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge.  It was a fun card to make and so easy because of all of the great new products from Stampin’ Up!  Did you notice the washi tape?  It really doesn’t get easier than that!  The pretty banner made with the new punch?  This stamp set is very versatile, don’t you think?

Perfect Pennants
I am also submitting this card to a new card challenge blog called, The Card Concept.  It is a very cool idea of showcasing different styles of cards.  My style is more Clean & Layered, don’t you think?
