Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge #21 Shape Cards

This challenge was a lot of fun!  Not only did I get to spend some quality crafting time with the Peachy Queen, Kathy J, but I finally used an Action Wobble Spring (thanks Ruthie!) with my little punch art elephant.  These things are so fun!  I also got to use a face set that I never used before.  It's called PK-740 Baby Animal Faces in 3" size.  It worked perfectly for my little baby elephant!

The challenge was to create a shape card.  The ladies really created some awesome cards!  Check them out at the challenge site HERE. Play along on the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize!

The step by step instructions and a brief video of the action wobble spring in action is below.

*this project uses all Stampin' Up! paper punches

Punch the following pieces for the elephant:
(3) Ornaments in Baja Breeze - EARS & FEET
(1) Extra Large Oval in Baja Breeze - HEAD
(1) 2-1/2" Circle in Baja Breeze - BODY
(1) Blossom Petals (large petal) in Baja Breeze - TRUNK

Stamp the elephant face from PK-740 Baby Animal Faces in 3" size with black ink pad.  Color in whites of eyes with uni-ball signo gel pen.  Stipple or sponge rose ink onto cheeks.  Color in mouth with black zig pen. 

Trim the Blossoms Petal punch as shown to create the trunk piece.  Cut one ornament in half (vertically) and round out ends to create feet.  Sponge edges of all pieces with Baja Breeze ink. Color toes with Basic Gray marker and outline with black zig pen.  Draw details onto trunk.  Glue ears onto back of head.  Attach trunk with dimensional.  Set pieces aside.

Card Assembly:

How cute. My question is where do you buy the springs and what do they look like? I also want to purchase face stamps but never know what size to buy, I get confused when I look at them all. What would you say is the most used set you use, maybe I can go from there. Thanks Kim,I just love your site and check it out quite often
