Haunted House Purse & Cards

Here is my Haunted House Purse & Cards Project! These cards would be great to send as Halloween cards or invitations to a Halloween Party! The purse would be perfect to carry the invitations into school to hand out or as a great Halloween decoration!
You could even change the colors and make these into adorable doll house cards with a matching purse for a little girl!
The cards are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and will fit in the standard medium envelopes. The purse is approximately 7 1/2" tall x 6 1/2" wide x 3" deep and will fit the cards and envelopes inside.

Hello Kitty Christmas!

Here is my Hello Kitty all dressed up for Christmas. I told you that you might see a few more of these cats!
I used the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper for the background and I sponged the edges with Crumb cake ink and used the Peaceful Season stamp set for the sentiment.

Here is how I made her:
For the dress I used the wide oval punch and just trimmed the sides down at an angle. I then used the 1/2" circle punch for the neckline of the dress.

I put the head on top with a dimensional and used the small oval punch cut in half with a slit in the bottom for the shoes.

I used the holly from the Deck the Halls DSP for her bow and popped it up in two layers. The sleeves are the small oval with the end punched with the scallop edge punch to make the end of the sleeves decorative. The holly on the main card uses the large oval punch, punched out with the 1/2" circle punch on both sides.

Hello Kitty Punch Art

I had a request to make a punch art Hello Kitty, so here she is! My daughter is obsessed with this little cat so you might see a few more of these!

Here is how I made her:
These directions are for my first Hello Kitty that I made. Then I will tell you the modifications for the one that is on the card.
Using the small oval punch I punched out two white and two regal Rose shapes for the arms. I cut the ends off of the rose ones and glued them on top of the whites.

I then punched a wide oval regal Rose shape. I put it back into the wide oval punch in the opposite direction and punched the bottom off. Then I used the small oval shape to make the neck part. I glued this on top of a white wide oval and then punched the bottom off just below the rose.

I cut a small slice in the bottom to make the two separate feet and rounded the edges. I glued the arms on the back.

The head is punched with the wide oval punch. The ears are the larger side of the butterfly sticking out the top of the head. I did cut a small amount off the inside of the butterfly wings where the arrows are just to make the ears a little bit pointier.

Her whiskers are using the slot punch (which is retired) or you could just cut little slits out of black paper. The bow is the large hole on the owl punch for the two outside pieces and the center circle is the middle size circle on the owl punch. I used a scissors to cut the edges of the outside circles down a bit. Her head is on with a dimensional. Her features are drawn on with markers.

After doing the first one I made a few adjustments. Here I used the 1 3/4" circle punch to round the edges of the head (still with a wide oval punch) so that it was not so wide. I cut the slot punch shapes in half to make the whiskers a little bit skinnier. I also used the 3/4" circle punch with the sides slimmed down a bit to make the front leg out like she is running. I used the Sahara Sand marker for all of the shading.

Hope you like her. I would love to see what you do with it!

Chef in the Kitchen Pop-Out Cards

Here are my Chef in the Kitchen Pop-Out Cards! The chefs are made using punches and when you open the cards, the kitchen appliances pop open!
I thought these cards would be great for anyone who likes to cook. They could also be used as invitations to a dinner party or any event where food is involved. The chefs would be great for cooking scrapbook pages also! You can change the stamp set and colors to make them suit your situation.

Mini Card Swap

I went to a mini gathering of Demonstrators over the weekend and got these great swaps and make-n-takes!

Here was my swap!
Align Center

This make-n-take was designed by Rachael Ellison.

And here was her swap!

These two make-n-takes were designed by Shanti McKenna. The first is a slider card using two pennies and Dimensionals. The long slot is punched using the word window punch.

Here is her second make-n-take.

Thanks girls for a great Sunday afternoon!

Halloween Spooky Eyeball Invite

Here is my Spooky Eyeball card! I think this would be great to use for a Halloween party invite or card and its really easy to make!
I used my circle cutter and cut two 3 3/4" circles in white card stock. I scored one circle close to the top and glued that to the other card so the card can open without having a flat part for the fold. I then used the 1 3/4" circle punch in Marina Mist and the 3/4" circle punch in black for the inside parts of the eye. I drew the red lines with the Red Riding Hood marker and the inner darker blue part with the Marina Mist marker.

Here are the two pieces to show you the scored circle that makes it open once you glue it together.
