Pokemon Go Punch Art!

It’s my kid’s fault!!  I’ve gotten caught up in the latest craze…Pokemon Go!

Last week my 2 daughters & I were in Charleston, SC, making wedding plans for my daughter, Jenny, who will be getting married there in 3 months!  None of us had ever been there and there are so many details to planning a wedding!  We had a lot of fun, but it was very stressful!

So…to de-stress, we’d walk over to the park across from our hotel & try to catch ’em all!! The park was LOADED with Pokemon!  And also loaded with a crowd of people staring at their phones walking around.

So when I decided to make a Punch Art Card for the Stylin’ Stampin’INKspiration Team, I knew just what I wanted to make!Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me

This little guy is called Octillery.  To make him, I used my Owl Punch & cut out a few shapes from Flower Fair Framelits.  Then I stuck on some shiny Enamel Shapes.  Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me2In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.

Here’s a picture of the inside:

Have a Blessed Easter!

Happy Easter!  Hope you’re having a wonderful day with friends & family.  Ours won’t be too exciting because the girls are on the mainland & we miss them…but we’ll make the most of it!  Pat & I are blessed to have Mom living next door in our cottage, so we’ll have a nice dinner after church.

Wanted to show you my Easter Card:

Work of Art Easter Egg  Createwithcheryl.me

Here’s a close up of the embossing:


I had a few leftover cards prepped & here’s what I made:

Create with Cheryl Big News

I thought this turned out cute!  Used the stamp set Big News and Baby’s First Framelits.

Create with Cheryl Happy Birthday

I had fun with this one!  And everyone needs birthday cards!  #imbringingbirthdaysback

Happy Birthday from the hostess set, Happy Birthday, Everyone, is the perfect size!  Then I punched out balloons using Party Punch Pack and some silver thread, bound together with the bow from Square Pillow Box Framelits.


Almost the same…just using scraps I found on my desk.  This flower was from Flower Fair Framelits.

One last card to share.  I received this beautiful card from one of my downline, Louella. Create with Cheryl Louella's card

Isn’t it gorgeous?!  I can see that Wink of Stella on the flowers…pretty!!

May the promise of Easter fill you with renewed faith, hope, & joy.

Have a blessed Easter!
