More Punching and Free Word Art


Every Friday Paper Makeup Stamps has a Friday Freebie Digi Word Art on their blog. I just love this week's quote and immediately pictured Ed jumping into a pile of leaves instead of his usual swimming pool. :) Of course, the perfect way to make a pile of leaves is to use my paper punches, so this is also another card for the PMS Monday Challege Getting Punchy. I used pastel chalks to color Ed and highlight the saying. I used a q-tip to dab clouds with white craft ink. I tore some paper for the ground and taped a bunch of punched out leaves on top of each other to make an attractive pile for our favorite elephant Ed. He's also popped up on dimensionals to give him a better sense of being air-born, haha. :)


Next I wanted to make a card with the Friday Freebie word art printed larger. One of the nice things about digis is you can print the quote out any size you want! I used Lime Rickey DP from Basic Grey and a cuttlebug embossing folder for the edge of the yellow cardstock. I just got my first copic markers and used them to highlight the word art to match my papers. Add a black mat and a ribbon tab and I have another cheerful fall card to send to one of my friends. :)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
