"Tale as old as time..." Punch Art

Happy Snow Day!  It's a blustery, cold and snowy day here today and I LOVE it!  No school and NO work.  Wahoo!  I spent the morning in the studio working on a new punch art project to share with you.
I hope you're ready for a little more "magic".  After creating Cinderella's dress last week my mind was just racing with new punch art ideas.  I sat and sketched out a few but this one was definitely at the top of my "To Do" list.  
Are you ready?? 
 Here it is...

This is Belle's gown...on a canvas!  I am SO please with the way it turned out.

I added a little more dimension to the bottom of her dress by popping up folded pieces of the underskirt.

When I think about the relationship between Belle and Beast I think this stamp from the "Feel Goods" stamp set fits just perfectly.  I added an "enchanted rose" under glass...and then....

I used the "Hearts A Flutter" Framilits to create the flag banners.  They remind me of the ones they have hanging in the halls of the castle.  I added to them by using stamps from the Collage Curios stamp set and to finish it off along with a clock charm from the "Tea Time Trinkets" collection in the Spring Catalog.  (The Eiffel Tower-because they live in France...The Rose-for the Enchanted Rose...and the Clock-for the "Tale as old as time..." theme)

I will be posting a new Suitably Punched Tutorial very soon with the instructions on how to make Belle's gown.  I'm really excited about that!!  I hope you are too.  Please check back soon for all the details.

For now...I'm off to get things ready for a yummy dinner for tonight.  I hope that wherever you are that you are warm and toasty and I hope you have a magical day.

Stamped Blessings,

  4. Thanks you all SO much. You have no idea what it means to me that you all like my work. I'm usually just sitting in my studio in my pjs crafting away (and singing loudly).... It isn't "pretty"!! But seriously...I love you all so much for taking time to comment and for coming back!

  7. I hope you keep this going. Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are my daughters favorites. ( I bought the tutorial of Cindy's dress)

  8. You are so talented Michelle, and I'm so envious! This project, and that dress, is unbelievable. I so plan to (or I'll try to) recreate it for a layout, but I know it won't look like yours. Again, thank you so much for sharing your work with us!

  9. Belle is absolutely my favorite! I can't wait for a tutorial!

  10. Fabulous.........would love a tutorial....TFS!
