Creation Station Blog Hop Power of the Punch

September 2, 2018 8 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today is the first Sunday of the month and that means it’s time for the Creation Station Blog Hop.  This month the design team has gotten punchy for our Creation Station Blog Hop Power of the Punch.

Creation Station Blog Hop Power of the Punch Card

 

Creation Station Blog Hop Power of the Punch Daisy Delight card from theartfulinker.com

 

For my card, I started with a Thick Whisper White base.

Then, I added a layer of Blueberry Bushel.

On my Shimmery White layer, I watercolored with Mango Melody.

Then, I stamped a daisy and some sprigs from Daisy Delight in Blueberry Bushel.

Next, I punched Old Olive leaves and added a loop of Blueberry Bushel ribbon.

For my flower, I used the daisy punch.

To give it more body, I started with a layer of Blueberry Bushel petals

before adding the Garden Impressions petals.

Using my Bone Folder, I gently shaped each layer of the flower.

At the top, I splattered on some Mango Melody ink before stamping

the Daisy Delight sentiment in Blueberry Bushel.

Then, I added some Clear Rhinestones to finish.

To go with my card, I created a little gift box.

For the box itself, I used Blueberry Bushel cardstock.

Then, I added a panel of Garden Impressions designer paper to each side.

Next, I wrapped the box with Blueberry Bushel ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim.

Combining ribbon/trim elements is an easy way to take it to the next level.

On the top, I created this great flower using the Daisy Punch,

Garden Impressions designer paper and Mango Melody cardstock.

To shape the flower, I used my Bone Folder on the petals.

Next, I finished the inside of the flower with a Gold Faceted Gem

and added another to the box.

And as a final accent, I added Old Olive leaf punches.
