"Tommy Turkey"

We just did this cute Tommy Turkey for my monthly craft club project, we had lots of fun!
The following products were used to create this card.

  • Craft Paper card stock for the actual card found at Michael's Craft Store
  • Jim Holtz Bubble and Honeycomb embossing folder for the "chicken wire" effect
  • For the head of the Turkey, beak and the turkey hanging thingy (snood) I used patterns from Treasure Box Designs Fall collection
  • Feathers I had cut in to make look like feathers and used various Fall colors
  • On the feathers I used Cuttlebug embossing folder Swirls
  • For the butt feathers I used the Stampin Up Scallop Circle punch
  • Turkeys body I used the SU extra large oval punch
  • Turkeys stomach I used SU  large oval punch
  • Turkeys eyes I used SU 1/2 circle punch for the Itty Bitty shapes  for whites, pupils, and lids
  • white paint for the dots on the eyes
  • SU small heart punch for the turkeys heart
  • SU build a bird punch for the wings of the turkey
  • Marvey flower paper punch for the hair
  • SU Modern label for the "Eat Ham" saying
  • SU designer label punch for my "Gobble Gobble" saying
  • SU Bo Ho Blossoms for the feet
  • I always edge everything with color just a couple shades darker than my actual paper

  2. Thank you Robin, we had so much fun making this project. I haven't had too much time to blog but I try to get what projects I present to my craft club on my blog. I still can't get Treasure Box Designs added to my favorites that I follow =( Let me know if you can try and get that added to my blog. I should be adding more stuff soon. Hope all is well with you, I wish you and your family Happy Holidays =)
