Yes, it is true. I am no longer a Stampin' Up! Demo.
I am a mere mortal.
I never was a big SU seller. Just a user. And during my little break from paper crafts I declined to meet my quota. The down side of this it that I now have to pay FULL PRICE (gasp!) for my SU goodies. The upside is that I can talk about and link to other products and sites. Full price = bad for me. Linking = good for you. You win!
Here is my "get back into punching" first project - Lady in Hat
I think she will go with any snarky sentiment you have for a girl friends card.
My inspiration came from an old (March 2005) Paper Crafts magazine and the stamp is Lady in Feather Hat by Victorine Originals. (Don't know if it is still available). But this is what made me want to punch again:
I was cleaning out some old craft stuff - saw where I had torn this page out. Her square jaw line made me think of the Curly Label punch and so I opened the second punch drawer, knocked the cobwebs off and tried it. I think Betty Boop is the only other time I have tried using the Curly Label as a face.
Here is a shot of her parts:
Hat - 1 3/8 circle, large oval, another large oval trimmed as shown in photo
Head - Curly Label - face drawn on (copying the Victorine Originals Stamp)
Neck/Chest - Blossom Petal Builder - feather duster one with the tip cut off - curve line drawn for cleavage
Dress - Full heart, point cut off
Arm - Full heart next to Full heart hole
Hand - end of Modern Label repunched with one of the smaller circles
Brim of Hat - small oval trimmed as in photo
Hair - scraps, cut fringe into one end of each and curl with your talented little fingers
Then I added a little flower but didn't have it added when I took the parts picture - you can figure that out!
Disclaimer - I have not yet flattened the hair, stuck it in an envelope and mailed it so I can't say what it will look like upon arrival at its destination.
My sentiment reads "The older we get, the more we should accessorize. Or is that exercise?" And here is where I accessorized her (well, at least I bling-ed her a bit)...
