Oval Punch Make n' Take

Okay, now that I am over the trauma of today ;-) is the second make n, take from last night.

I want to say first up that the idea for the flower was inspired by a sheet of punch ideas I saw (but apparently did not download) on Splitcoaststampers at some point in the not too distant past. I searched high and low for these again tonight, so that I could reference their creator, but after 30 minutes I gave up. I am pretty sure that when I saw them arranged like this they were part of a turkey (as in a Thanksgiving Day turkey)...and they were his tail. So, if anyone knows what/where I got them from I'd really appreciate you letting me know. I'll post the link here, AND make a copy for myself because there were some AWESOME ideas for things to make with punches.

Just briefly now, the colours are: Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Whisper White, Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie. The stamp on the More Mustard layer is from the Bud Basics stamp set in the Summer Mini. I have also distressed the edges of this layer. I've used both the small and large oval punches...lots. The stem is from the Rustic Retreat Ribbon Originals. The 'thanks' sentiment is from the Small Sayings stamp set in the Summer Mini. As I only wanted to use part of the stamp I inked it up using a Ruby Red Stampin' Write Marker, instead of a stamp pad. There is SNAIL, a glue dot and ONE dimensional only (underneath the centre petal, at the top)!! WOW. That is a break-through for me :-).

And, that is all there is to this card!

Love how you've used the oval punches on this card & the colours look great too. I'll have to get my punches out and have a play.

Hi Sam, love how you've done this flower. I keep meaning to be clever with punches... wonder where the time goes!
I'm at work right now, but if you send me an email to remind me, I can give you the info on the creative punch samples when I get home. There's some really clever things that you can do with punches. Last week I made flower and people with some little children using different punches. They thought it was wonderful. hugz, Tracy
