Saturday Blog Hop – Punch/Framelit Art

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is “Punch/Framelit Art”…any way to use them other than the original purpose for them!  I love this theme and doing Punch Art classes.

I also love the computer mouse card I came up with for this week!  I was inspired by an SVG file I saw online and knew that I could recreate it using our Stampin’ Up! punches!



Here are the details on this card:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
  • A 4 x 5-1/4 piece of A Little Foxy Designer Paper was added to the front.
  • The 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Whisper White cardstock was rounded on the corners with the Corner Rounder (retiring!).
  • Two strips of Smoky Slate cardstock were hand-cut for the dividers on the computer mouse.
  • The ears were the small balloon on the Balloon Builder Punch from Blushing Bride cardstock.  The center was colored with the Clear Wink of Stella Brush.
  • The eyes were the circle from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch from Basic Black, then highlighted with White Gel Pen.
  • The nose and cheeks were punched from Blushing Bride cardstock with the Confetti Punch.
  • Strips of Smoky Slate cardstock were hand-cut for the whiskers.
  • The tail of the computer mouse is punched from Smoky Slate with the Confetti Punch.
  • The black “wheel” is also punched with the Confetti Punch and placed on the Smoky Slate divider.
  • The greeting letters were stamped with Memento Black on Whisper White with the Labeler Alphabet.  Each one was hand-cut and then glued on the DSP to make the specialized greeting!
