Throw'em at ya!!

Hmmmm my friend Deborah, says I am an 'All or nothing kind of Girl'!....well I am throwing all my takes on what else can be done with the SU 'Bauble' punch, straight at you while they are popping up in my insomniac induced mojo!

So here is today's take, have you spotted the bauble yet??!

I do admit to taking the scissors to it, just a little bit off, to make the bottom!! And the flowers...well I must not be able to sleep due to having Orchids on the brain! They were made using scraps of 'Melon Mambo'.....(yes I do love it & you get soooooo much in a single colour cardstock pack from SU!) & the smallest heart from the 'Heart to Heart' Stampin' Up! punch, to make the centres I just added some of the smallest SU bling (it is so, so sparkly, I may just stick it to my ears at convention and see if anybody notices!!).

My the stems were drawn free hand, with a 'Stamp & Write' marker. in 'Old Olive', the 'Stampin' Up!' People really are clever, to make everything co-ordinate, as the ;eaves were cut from some teeny tiny scraps of 'Old Olive' cardstock....(Hmmm if you know Deborah, at this point she would be saying ..'well she never chucks any scraps away and goes through the bin after mine!')

Here is a close up of the bauble, it was just punched out of 'Early Espresso' SU cardstock.

I have included a side on shot then you can see the dimension, I created and also how the main image goes off the top of the card blank!

To add a greeting, a frame from the 'Mini Catalogues' 'Four Frames' was stamped in 'Early Espresso' Ink, the 'Thank you' greeting is from the 'Just Believe' Stamp set and fits in the frame perfectly with the help of my trusty 'Stamp-a-ma-jig'! I used 'Old Olive' Ink for this and added a another little sparkly orchid bloom, and some ruched grosgrain 'Old Olive' ribbon to finish the card.

Please check out my blog tomorrow, when you will see more evidence of the insomniac induced punching frenzy, off to do School Holiday duties and entertain the children. xXXx
