Cardmaking and Papercraft with Becki Ritson Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Fri 11 Apr 2014

Hello! Every now and then, and am challenged to make something that really takes me out of my comfort zone. This recent card commission was one of those times. The brief? It had to be purple, and it had to be pig(s). Hmmm... NOT my usual type of thing at all.

So I thought. And I thought. And, gazing at the wonderful punch-storage rack that sits at the back of my craft desk (love it!), the answer came to me: a punch art pig! So, I played, and I punched, and I tweaked, and I played some more, and this little piggy was the result.Amazing what you can do with a few simple shapes, isn't it? I think he's fab!! (What do you think of the fence, too? Cool, eh?)

I was talking to the ladies at my class the other weekend, and they told me they'd love to do a punch art class. What do you think? Would that be something you'd be interested in? (I'm bringing my classes online as soon as possible, so you don't need to be local to me to join in). Let me know, either by contacting me here, or by commenting on this post.

Thanks for dropping in! Back soon...

Hello! How are you all anjoying this glorious sunshine? We've  just been sitting out in the garden, enjoying a cup of coffee in the warmth, listening to the bees buzzing around the strawberry flowers (yes, already - I could hardly believe it!). Oh, the joys of working from home and to my own schedule!

How do you fancy a fabulous crafting deal to go with all that sunshine? Yes? Fantastic! I have just the thing....
