OMG!!! (As my daughter says!) Yesterday's post was supposed to post today, and today's post was supposed to post yesterday! I got the dates all mess up!! Well, let's just say that the mouse referred to and shown in yesterday's post is explained in this post and video! Hope you enjoy!
Today's project is a Before & After using punches. Who is to say that an ornament punch has to be an ornament? Not Ellen Kemper! She is the punch art queen!! All Hail the Queen! I got the idea for this mouse from Ellen, and then took him in a direction that will embellish my project for tomorrow! Yes, you are 24 hours away from finding out what project actually started this whole series!! I am so excited, I can hardly wait!! But, I have to, because I am "trapped" into doing this series bit by bit.
Today I have a video showing you exactly how to make this super cute mouse! It uses several punches. If you do not have the punches, you can freehand cut out some shapes, or place an order with me for what you need! Just call or email me.
What the video does not show: (Sorry I am still very new at videos!)
- Me attaching the tail. Very simply, add a drop of glue to one end and press onto the back of the mouse.
- Using the Stampin' Write marker on the whisper white square to make i a "newspaper".
- Cutting the tooth. It is just a tiny rectangle of whisper white.
- Using a sponge dauber to add a bit of pink to his ears and cheeks. The sponge daubers are smaller than a regular sponge, so they work better in this situation.
- I did not add whiskers, but you could, just by drawing some in with the Black Stampin' Write Marker or by cutting VERY thin pieces of cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by today, you can check out the post that shows how I used this mouse here!
