Last of the Punch Art (for 2012?)

So here I am with the last of the Punch Art cards for 2012!!!! And this one is my favourite and was the most time consuming card of the evening!!

I love using the Owl punch to make little penguins!!!! So I created a little snowy scene with them this time! The colour is Bashful Blue which I have been using quite a lot of lately! Its from the Subtles family and is a lovely crisp blue!

We used a lot of Dazzling Diamonds glitter on this card and some daubing too 

The card is a normal A6 card with part of the front cut away, then I tore the Whisper White card to create little snowy hills.

Guess which set the sentiment is from! Yep - Petite Pairs

And here are all the lovely punch art cards together!!!! 

Hope you have enjoyed my makes!!

If you would like to come to a class, please check my class dates in my sidebar or at the top of my blog!

  6. Hello Julie

    I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

    I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press

    Im'e a gilder and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

    Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

    It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well.

    If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders trick which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

    Good luck to us all.


  7. What a unique idea! I just love penquins and these adorable. Thanks for sharing your talent.
