Punch Inspiration 11/14/12

Hi All! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  I've been working 70 hour weeks at my full time job with virtually no time to get online or craft.  I was hoping to roll out a new punch class in November but it's looking less and less likely.  I do have a cute single design that I would like to roll out before the end of the month and I think that could be doable.  Thanks to everyone for patiently waiting for me.  Here is some inspiration for you!

Thankful Blog Hop

Today I join the fabulous Peachy Keen design team and alumni on a blog hop.  We are celebrating all that we are thankful for!  Not only am I thankful for my family and friends, but I'm also thankful to be sharing my creations with all of you.  I'm thankful for all of my dedicated readers that visit often and especially all of you that leave so many wonderful comments.  It's been a tough year for me.  Moving and working extra long hours at my full time job hasn't left we with nearly enough time this year.  I haven't had time to create many new punch art classes for you all to enjoy.  I plan on making the new year a whole lot more productive!

If you came here from Saundra wonderful blog, then you are on the right track.  If you are just starting the hop here, you definitely want to start at the beginning.

Peachy Keen is generously giving away three $50 gift certificates!  They will be randomly drawing from the comments on several of the participating blogs.  We don't know yet which blogs that will be, so you will definitely want to visit all the stops and comment at each one to increase your chances!

I dug out my punches and nestabilities along with one of my favorite Peachy Keen face sets called PK-482 Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.  If you don't have this set yet, you should definitely add it to your collection!  The sweet little bird, snowman and kid faces in this set will melt your heart.  Look at those lashes!


Sorry I didn't have time to create a step by step tutorial for you this time.  I'm working 70 hour work weeks for the next 3 weeks and barely have enough time to eat and sleep!   For the body, I used  my Nestabilities dies to cut 4 different size scallop circles.  I rolled each into a cone and stacked them like a tree to create the body.  Cut the top of the tree off so you can tuck the head into the top.  I used the Blossom Petals Builder punch for the wings and head.  For the feet I used Boho Blossoms.  For the tail, I cut 3 large scallop circle nestabilities and layered the pieces.  Cut the sides off to create tail.  Cut a slit in back of body and tuck tail into slit. Hand cut a waddle for his face and stamp and pop the beak on top of it.

Peachy Keen November 2012 Release

I love Christmas and winter stamps!  The November SOTM stamp release from Peachy Keen Stamps is no exception.  The sweet elves and reindeer along with the wonderful greetings will make you completely fall in love with this set!

Check out my first creation using the November 2012 Stamp of the Month set.  Isn't this reindeer the cutest?  All of the fantastic papers and ribbon are from the November Peachy Picks kit.  Both of the November kits go beautifully together!  I actually dug out my copics for this one.  I'm still learning how to use them, so please don't laugh too hard at my coloring skills.  It would help if I had a wider range of colors.  


For this card, I used the new set PK-147 Skatin' by which features the most adorable ice skating snowman and penguin along with some fantastic greetings.  You'll definitely want this set in your collection!  Once again, I used the gorgeous papers from the November Peachy Picks kit.


Please head on over to Peachy Keen Stamps on Monday to see all of the wonderful new stamps!  PKS is offering a great discount on the new stamps, so it would definitely be the best time to buy them all!
