We had so much fun this month at Stamp Club! We made 3 projects – starting off with this fun card made by using several punches. (Sorry for the poor photo!) Here’s what you’ll need to make the turkey:
1. Nose: Tip of a Boho Blossom Punch 6-petal Flower in Pumpkin Pie
2. Face: 3/4″ Circle Punch in More Mustard
3. Hat: 3/4″ Square Punch in Basic Black, plus a small rectangle strip to create a brim (just create your own – it’s not hard!)
4. Body: 1 3/8″ Circle Punch in Chocolate Chip
5. Buttons: 1/4″ Circle Punch in Real Red
6. Feet: Boho Blossom 8-petal Flower in Pumpkin Pie
7. Eyes: Double Circle Punch in Basic Black
8. Scallop Circle Punch – 1 each in Real Red, Old Olive, & Chocolate Chip
To make the turkey feathers, punch a scallop circle, and counting 5 scallops, fold that portion of the circle down. Next, turn the circle over and fold in half to form the crease in the middle for reference, then unfold. (I don’t do this step, as I didn’t want a crease down the middle, so you can either eyeball the next step or draw lightly with a pencil where the middle of the circle would be). Now fold the top folded edges down from each side so that the folded edges meet in the middle at the bottom of the circle (similar to paper airplane fold). Glue all your pieces together to form your turkey. This will be very dimentional as your feathers will not lay down completely.
The easiest way I found to assemble this little guy was to line up the feathers and glue them in the middle of the Whisper White card stock (after stamping your sentiment, of course). Then I used one of the large pop-up glue dot in the bottom part that is left open and stick the turkey right on that. His head will “float” right where it’s supposed to be.
This ribbon from the Alpine Originals is the softest felt! I can’t believe how much I love it! It ties very nicely, too!
The next project is the Pumpkin Pie treat box. I used this pattern and printed it out on Pumpkin Pie card stock. I used a piece of Creamy Caramel with a scalloped edge as the pie crust, scored and bent it backwards a bit and put a couple of ribbons through it. It’s probably too hard to see, but I “sprinkled some cinnamon” on top using the color spritzer tool and Chocolate Chip marker.
I stamped a leaf randomly onto Naturals White card stock and colored in with Watercolor Pencils, and added a piece of Bella Rose DSP with a little distressing along the edge. I wrapped a bit of raffia around the pie and tied it in the back. This is a good sized box and will hold a variety of yummy treats!
Lastly, we made a Christmas card, which I CASEd almost exactly from Beate here. I only changed the colors of card stock, ink & ribbon. I made a mask and sponged inside it lightly with white carft ink, then stamped the row of trees in white craft ink. Next I inked up the single tree in Always Artichoke and using a Chocolate Chip marker, colored the tree trunk right on the stamp, and then stamped the image. Using the mat pack and paper piercer, pierce holes around. I absolutely love this card, even though my paper piercing isn’t perfect!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I’ll have more to share soon!
