Party Animals!

I made this for the ‘Celebrations!’ challenge at Cute Card Thursday and Die Cut Dreams ‘Pack a Punch’ where you had to use at least two hand punches.I went for a simple layout as I wanted these happy little chaps to stand out.I don’t know the name of this stamp as I got the image in a swap but I do know it’s Penny Black!They’ve been coloured with Promarkers.I used some offcuts of Basic Grey Cupcake papers and some card from my stash.The punches I used are a small corner rounder,a star corner from a set I bought ages ago and a film strip.I only used part of this one to create the holes and then threaded some ribbon cut from a couple of  new tops I bought.They’re the pieces that are used to keep them on the hangers.The sentiment is from an old See D set.

A little bird…

This adorable little fella is called Alfie and the Post Box and is a download available from Willow Designs.Sharon Armstrong who designed him also runs the Willow Sketchie Challenge where each week there is a draw with the chance of winning one of her fabulous downloads.That’s exactly how I acquired this chirpy chap.So why not head on over and take a chance?

This is the sketch set by DT member Rosie:

As you can see I’ve turned it on it’s head.All backing papers have been mounted onto Papermania textured card and the edges have been ditressed.I printed the Alifie Pumpkin Floral paper onto linen textured card to create a border with it and cut out two faux buttons,threaded with waxed cord, from it too.I printed two different sized toppers onto the same type of card and layered them twisting the bottom one so that the stripes were horizontal.Even though they are pre-coloured I couldn’t resist getting the Promarkers out to shade the image and to go around the edges to give more definition.The sentiment is from a set I bought when I first started stamping a few years ago and it’s the first time I’ve used it!!
