Today’s card is starring the Turtle Friends Punch Bundle and would work for any age. At least I hope it does since I made it for a close friend, who is younger than me, but not a child. I thought the turtly play on words was just perfect.
Stamps and Punch
I had not really played with this stamp very much and making this card has given me several ideas for it. Sadly it is on the retiring / almost gone list. (There are only 7 days left of the current Annual Catalog!) For the sweet turtle, I stamped and then colored her body with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. And did you notice her pink toes and lips? The shell is stamped with Old Olive and then punched with the matching Turtle Punch.
The adorable little bird is stamped with Polished Pink and fussy cut using my wonderful Paper Snips. Both the turtle and the bird are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I don’t care for a lot of a solid cardstock. So to alter that part of the Polished Pink I stamped the party streamers tone on tone down the open section. And finally the sweet Turtly sentiment was added on the White with the Turtle and Bird.
Normally my color choices begin with the DSP. This time the black and white plaid strip from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper was indeed the original idea. And the Polished Pink came more from “what would go best with this strip of DSP?”. An odd way of getting there but it worked!
There are probably not very many real life pink birds. Maybe a flamingo? But I took creative license and went with it for the little bird. And to add bling for my finishing touch I went with pink again. This time was the 2021-2023 In Color Gems.
I am taking orders for the new Annual Catalog Product Share for New Designer Series Paper and Ribbons. The form is on my menu under Shop/Product Share. This is a wonderful way to get a sample of all of the new papers so you can really see their beauty in person. Then you can decide on the ones you like the most. And the ribbon is the same way.
