November Calendar

here is my take on november for the annual calendar swap in SAT. to make the turkey you can go to dawn's stamping thoughts as she has a video on how to make it. the inks i used are all from stampin up and they are all the browns color. 3 different colors. choc. chip, caremal, close to cocoa. the stamps are from close to my heart which i bought from a website when lucinda had it. the calendar I downloaded from the computer. I also inked the edges of the 6x6 card also besides the calendar. the turkey is up using foam tape.I had to make 12 of these for the swap and i will get 12 backs including one of me own. I done 3 swaps for this as they have iot every year.

punched santa

here is another one I did but with santa. if you like to make any of tyhese punch art. just go to youtube and type in punch art. there you will find all sorts of punch art to your choosing. this way you can write down or stop the video and do as they make one. I did it with the owl and santa as i got confused on the owl face. it was neat. I put all this on a 6x6 cardstock I cut, with the extras that I punched out as i was punching the others out. this way i know what to use in the future. I seen this done on another blog but cannot remember whos blog it was so i can give her credit. she had a groovy idea on tis I must say.

punched owl

here is an owl that I made from stampin up punches or punches you might have close enough to make this. I seen this on youtube done by foreveramber. the most tricky part of it was doing the wings as you have to watch the video there to make sure you are doing it right. I had to throw away my forst wings as i boo booed on them. I had to go back to the video and see how she was doing them. then I just put everything on a 6x6 sheet of cardstock for a reference in the future. it will help me.
