Ellen Kemper had a drowsy fisherman on her blog once. I think that is where she got the idea. Pretty amazing Punch Art! Come back tomorrow to see the Barn/Horse Punch Art.

I tried a fun new background by taking my brayer and wrapping rubber bands around the roller. The I rolled in onto versa Mark then onto my paper and then poured gold embossing powder over the inked up areas and set it with the heat gun. I did this a few times until I got the look I was going for. Once that cooled off I sponged a few different colors into the background and then took a paper towel and wiped off the embossed areas. What do you think?
Stamp Set: Totally Tools and So happy for you (SAB only used you from one of the sayings)
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, More Mustard
Punches: Modern Label and Word Window
Misc: Brayer, Rubber Bands, Versa Mark, Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Brads, Sponge Daubers, Aqua Painter and of course the Stamp a ma jig and post it notes.
I wish I could remember where I saw the person that posted her card that spelled out Love with the tools to give her credit but there is not watermark on the card. So credit goes to her for that wonderful idea!

I found the cutest card portfolio tutorial on Flowerbug's Inkspot - LeAnn Greff's Blog. Please check out her full blog. Super cute! You can use the Note Cards that Stampin' UP! sells but I didn't have any on hand so I made my own note cards and envelopes. I had one envelope from the note card set so I opened it up and traced it onto designer paper, scored it and glued it together. Worked like a charm. I kept the note cards super simple and used the Ice cream Parlor Designer Paper I earned free during Sale-a-bration. Which by the way there is still time for you to get in on the deals. Sale-a-bration runs through March 31st. Don't delay, buy today! I donated this to a fundraiser I will be attending on Friday for one of the Junior High Schools.
