Punch Art Kermit - Yay!!

And Yay! again cos it's Friday!  

Here's the Friday Mashup for this week and isn't it fun? 

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using "Your Favorite Muppet Color Combo".
  2. Or Make a project " for kids".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Project for a Kid using your Favorite Muppet Colors".
Don't forget to tell us or Show us who your Favorite Muppet is!


Well I've not just made a kids card or just used muppet colours but made a muppet card!  It's Kermit of course.  You knew that didn't you?  I hope so!!




I first of all shaped my card by cutting triangles.  He is of course wearing Old Olive today sponged with Old Olive ink to give a slight textured look.  His frill is Certainly Celery made with the Petite Pennants Punch.  Just what all best dressed frogs are wearing this season! 

 His eyes are 1" circles punched out of Whisper White and popped back into the Round Tab Punch to create the curve at the bottom of his eyes.  The black centres are the four petal Itty Bitty Shapes Punch but with one petal snipped off. 

For his mouth I cut a triangle of Real Red and added a 1" circle punch of Blushing Bride lightly sponged and snipped to give a straight edge. 

I cut the Yay! using Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Sizzlits in Basic Black.  

Here's the middle - 


I carried the frill round into the middle and stamped It's Your Day!  from Happiest Birthday Wishes.  This is one of most versatile sets for birthdays ever!  You can earn this set with your hostess pounds when you place a qualifying order. 

I stamped Happy Birthday from For My Family and punched it out with the Word Window Punch before attaching it to a little ribbon banner.

I hope you've enjoyed your little visit to Kermit and will hop on over to the Friday Mashup to see some really inspiring cards.
