Simple punch art Tulips

Pin It
Hi all, I'm glad this week is almost over the past couple of weeks have been a worrying time with my brother in a Sydney hospital with a heart attack. But he is home now and on the mend thank the Lord! lots of prayers and FB communication has gone up and around during this time which we were grateful for. We are heading down to see the kids at Uni this weekend which we are excited about, there have been a few calls home saying how they miss the home cooked food so I'm planning a nice picnic lunch for us all and I'll do some special cup cakes too ;) (got some ideas in mind)

So this card i have made goes to my brother and I thought I'd share it with you also. The name of the bird dies are called "Birds" from QuicKutz, all info is in the instructions and on the video. I have a video below and you can also purchase the written instructions for a small price
I would also like to add could you please not redo my instructions on your own blog / YouTube especially if they are for sale, I have come across a few blogs that are doing this and aksed them to remove the instructions. Just a finished pic and a link back would be enough please. And I have had a massive out break of people leaving spam and advertising on my comments which I have to moderate, please stop wasting mine and everyone's time! Ok enough with all that rot sit back and enjoy the video and if you'd like the written instructions they here

Blessings to you

and a last thought
“I praise you because I am fearfully
and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,
I know that full well”
(Psalm 139:14, NIV)

Valita, I love this card! I love all your cards though, but I see this as an Easter card with a little lamb nestled in at the bottom.
I am happy that your brother is doing better.

Your card is so pretty with the tulips. Love how you placed them in the opening and then out of the card. It looks like they were just taken out of the garden, Your brother will just love it! Hope he mends quickly, too.

Brilliant card Valita. I'm starting to look at shapes now and visualise them using a punch! LOVE these tulips, which are sop pretty and so cleverly thought out.
Are you using the feature on Blogger whereby you can filter out the spam before it gets into your comments? It makes all the difference. No more trawling through and deleting the spam ones one by one. They are put in a spam folder in the comments section and it saves you from opening them and getting more and more. Just a thought. I wisah your brother all the best for a speedy recovery. xxx

Hi Viv, I have the spam filter on which makes in even more annoying....

Valita.........you are amazing. I so love having your blog pop up in my email box. I'm trying to duplicate your creations on my SCS gallery. Or at least a few of them. I always give you credit for the designs. You share your talent with all of us so unselfishly.... do NOT let a few negative thoughts bring you down. You have a huge cheering section. God Bless you and yours.

Jessica said...

Oh wow! Another gorgeous flower card. I've made 3 cards with the patterns you sent. I have the picure taken, ready to go up on the blog, but I keep forgetting to upload! lol What a memory. I'll say a prayer for your brother. What a scary thing to go through. Hope all goes well.
Hugs, Jessica

Oh Valita, this card is absolutely beautiful! You are amazing, we see a plain 5 petal punch and you see a garden of tulips. You truly have a gift. Thank you so much for sharing it. I am happy to hear that your brother is on the mend and that you will be visiting your kids too. That's great! I just learned my three grandkids are going to their other grandparents for spring break. So they will be gone for a week and when I see them again they will all look bigger. Be safe and God Bless.

I'm glad your brother is home and doing better. Thank you for the video tutorial. You are very clever.

Jeanette said...

I love the tulips you have designed...they have inspired me. I have been wanting to make cyclamen for a scrapbook page, so if I turn your tulip upside down add the crook shaped stems and heart shaped leaves...cyclamen! Thank you so much. Jeanette

Hi Valita
I am so loving your flowers right now - The tulips particularly although I have yet to try the Cala lilys. I don't know how you dream them up but I am so glad you do! Thank you!
I was saddened to hear the comments about the prices you charge - Frankly I think they are just about right and I am sorry that people seem to think you should be giving your talent away - they wouldn't expect the gas board or the gardener to give his trade or free so why should you!
Take good care and my thoughts are with you and your family...

Thanks Jackie

Donna said...

Thanks for the wonderful video. So easy but a brilliant idea. Hope your brother is feeling better very soon.

The bird dies are called "Birds" from Quickutz

Hi Valita! This card is realllly pretty! I wonder if I have a similar punch that I could try this....hmmmmm. :)

valita said...

try using any five petal flower to do the same thing

Virginia Wingo said...

Another beautiful flower card and easy to make. I love how they seem to be popping out of the window. Just wanted to say that I also had a surprise heart attack a few months ago and had a stent put in and now I am good as new, actually better then new. I pray that your brother does as well, which I am sure he will. Thanks Valita for another beautiful card.

Virginia Wingo said...

Best regards to your brother...I also had a surprise heart attack a few months ago and had a stent put in and now good as new, actually better then new. Thanks Valita for all the wonderful ideas you have shared with us.

You said to someone " try using a five point flower instead". Thank you for offering that advice. I look at your lovely creations, but generally don't have the punches to make them and it would never occur to me to look at something I do have and useit in place of the punch! If only all of use could see what you do!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work!
