Floral Punchy Zeros!!!

Thought I'd share a couple from the vault to show you where I have come form. before I started stamping, I used punches and paper to put together cards that showed people how much I care. Here are two cards for those who had "zero birthdays"

The flowers on this card are done with a punch called Primative Heart, add a small oval for the centre a flower pot and some leaves....easy!!

This one is a little more intricate in that there are trimmed ovals and sprials for the kettle spout. The handle is 2 Boomerangs and the large green leaves are larger versions of the small red flowers with a bit of hand detailing.

Also didn't realise I had such a gingham thing going back then...LOL!!!

The final one is the pansy. Now there are a lot of them around blog land at present, done with a butterfly punch, some water and some reinker. These are just plain old hears of different sizes, some watercolour crayons and some hand detailing. i love this look though.

I hope you enjoyed this trip back in time as much as I did. there are MANY different punches used in these cards...too many to list, so if you have any questions in particular, let me know in the comments and I will help in any way I can. Thanks for stopping by.
