Little boy punch art NO. 2

Here is another card I created using all stampin up punches. Isnt he a cute little boy.

I also used a stamp from the stamp set hello again (from the summer mini catty) to decorate the card

HAPPY NEW YEAR and some punch art NO.1


Next Saturday I will be attending our stampin team day in Ballarat. Simone has asked me to do a demonstration on what ever I like so I went with Punch art. I love punch art, it is amazing what you can create using your Stampin up punches and a bit of imagination., After I have created my card, I always show my DD 3 year old if she doesn't know what it is Ive created I'm in trouble. CARD goes in bin and I try again, So Far she has been very kind:)
So here is one of the cards I came up with. I'm trying to create as many as I can to take with me,
as well as creating a couple of scrap pages using punch art as well, So I will be TRYING to upload a punch art every day this week (dont hold me too it though) hope you enjoy what I have created and have a go yourself at creating a punch art card yourself XX
