Punch Art Baseball

Punch Art Baseball

Hello Friends,

Have you ever looked up into the clouds and imaged a sheep skipping across the sky?  It's called imagination!  It's amazing the things that you can make in your craft room with a little imagination.  I created today's Baseball card for my grandson, Grady, with supplies that I already had in my craft room.  I simply looked at them in a new way.  Today, I'll show you how to make this Punch Art Baseball Card step by step with a picture tutorial.  


Punch Art Baseball

Spoiler Alert:  My Punch Art Baseball Card wasn't made with exclusively punches.  I also you used dies and stamps.  Specifically, I used the Pocket Framelit Dies and the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set to make my handsome slugger.

The first step is to let your mind run free like you do when you see a pirate ship in the clouds.  If you need a little help with this, you can also try music to get in the groove.  One of the nice things about working from home is that I can do outlandish things like dance to "Y'all Ready for this" in my PJ's.  It's great bumper music for sports and it's great workout music too.

Punch Art Baseball Tips & Tricks

Sunglasses were a must for my baseball player, so I stamped and cut them with my Pocket Framelit Dies and the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Then, I colored them with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends. 

My Baseball Head was simply cut with my 2-1/4" Circle Punch.  Hint:  I curved my stamp before stamping my stitching on my baseball.

To make his baseball cap, I once again used my 2-1/4" Circle punch.   This time I only cut partial circles in Night of Navy and Real Red.

Now for the important part of his baseball cap.  Grady is the 2nd biggest Cleveland Indians Baseball fan that I ever met. His Dad is biggest Cleveland Indians fan that I ever met.  So, you can see why it was very important get a C on the cap.  To do this, I stamped a Night of Navy C on Real Red Card Stock using my Labeler Alphabet stamp and cut it out.  The Labeler Alphabet has saved more than one project, I'm so glad that I have it in my Craft Room.

My Baseball Player's body is another die from the Pocket Framelit Die set.  It's meant to be money, but I think that it makes a perfectly dandy torso.  The stitching on his uniform and his smile are also stamps from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.

His feet are another die from the Pocket Die set, but you could also use a circle punch.

His legs were cut with the Classic Label Punch.  And his arm was cut with the Duet Banner Punch.  I sliced it in half to make his arm more slender.  An oval punch would probably also work for the arm.

I formed the baseball mitt in several steps.  First, I cut a 1-1/4" Circle.  Then, I used the same circle punch to clip off a partial circle from the bottom of the mitt.  Next, I used another die from the Pocket framelits die set and cut over my circle.  Note: The finger pieces will fall out, but you can hold them in place with adhesive.  And finally, I used the framelit as a template for trimming the top edge of my glove.


Handmade Birthday Card

To stay with my Punch Art/Die theme.  I cut my inside Happy Birthday with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.

One final note about today's Punch Art Baseball Card.  It's considerably larger than a normal card.  My Card Base is 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored at 4-1/4".

Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

I don't know what it is about the Treehouse adventure stamp set, but I have a hard time keeping the house on the ground.  It does make a sweet Treehouse, but it's also fun to send it into the clouds.  I also know that the Treehouse Adventure stamp set was designed with children in mind, but honestly I have used this stamp set as much for adults as I have for children.

Treehouse Adventure Card Tips & Tricks

There are 3 stamps in this stamp set that are meant to be leaves for the tree, but with a little bit of imagination they also look like puffy clouds.

I sent the house soaring on an adventure with the balloons from the Hand Delivered stamp set.  I colored the balloons with a rainbow of colors using my Stampin' Blends.  Note: The Hand Delivered stamp set is a Hostess Rewards stamp set and is only available with orders over $150.

Hey Love Valentine Treat Pouches

Hello Friends,

What are you making for Valentine's Day?  When I saw the Hey Love stamp set from the Stampin' Up!

Here's the tutorial.

 

Lots of things will fit in this Treat Pouch.  I especially like that Ghirardelli Chocolates fit so well.  Yummy!  For my Hey Valentine Treat Pouches, I used the gorgeous All My love Designer paper and the Hey Love Stamp set.  

So what are you making for Valentine's Day?  These little Treat Pouches are so quick and easy to make.  Will you give them a try?  To make these cute Valentines, you only need 4 supplies besides your coloring tools.  I used Stampin' Blends.
