Hunter's Art Project...

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone! The week is 1/2 over!
I'm really excited to share Hunter's card with you today!
He worked really hard on it and even though I would
have inked everything he chose not to...  So of course I
went with the flow of it since it is his card! I gotta
tell ya though.... He is certainly a future card maker....
I was really surprised as to how much he wanted to
add to it.... It reminded me of.... ME! LOL
I would show you his sketch that started this
whole thing but we scribbled all over the paper so
I didn't want to share our messy process with ya! LOL
Last week we spent time cutting out all the pieces and
at one point Hunter says to me.... MOM... Are we done yet?
I look at him and say... you didn't think this was gonna
be a fast project did you? Of course his reply was YES!
I had to laugh because he did add a lot of pieces which
take time to cut out... Especially since he had to pick
the colors to go with the card! I let him go play at
the very end of cutting when I needed to re-cut some
of the leaves... :o) Any whoo.... Enough about all of that...
Here is my little guys Card Creation!!!!

Is this not the coolest card from an 8yr. old?
I swear it's something I would do! Maybe that's
why he created it that way? I don't know... All I know is
he's got a pretty good start in crafting if you ask me! :o)
I have to confess though.... I had to ink something cause it
was driving me crazy soooo I did ink around the sun...
but that's it! He stamped the face and did all the other stuff...
So here are all the details:
Card stock, Ink - Stampin' Up
Designer paper - (Sky) Imagine Hopscotch Cartridge
He used Bo Bunny Double Dot Paper for all the cuts!
Cartridges - (Leaves) Straight from the nest Cut @ 3/4", 1", 1 1/2"
(Tree) Serenade Cut @ 4"
(Basket) Doodlecharms Cut @ 1 1/2" (2x's)
(Grass) Zooballo Cut @ 1"
(Sun) Art Philosophy Cut @ 2"
(Squirrel & Nut) Enjoy the Seasons Cut @ 3" We used
the "Flip" button and the "Separate"  just to get the squirrel and nut
(Nuts only) Cut @ 2" using the "Separate" and just cutting those out
He also wanted a "Hole" in the tree were the squirrel lives so he
made an oval shape using a black zig pen......


He followed his sketch really well and all I did was add adhesive
and he put everything where he wanted it to go... And the only
reason I put the adhesive on is because he had a hard time
trying to use my Therm-o-web runner... So I told him I would
add the adhesive to all of his pieces and put it off to the side
so he can place everything were he wanted it to go...
And when he was all finished he had to
come show me what he did.... and of course I HAD to take a picture of it
and I said you get an A+ for this project! Thanks for letting me
share my sons project! I'll be back tomorrow with something
I CREATED! :o) Have an AWESOME DAY!!

We are putting this into the Challenge over at:

wow! my son is 8 and has ZERO interest in crafts. I can't believe he designed this himself. This is really cute. Everything he chose to add is perfect! Tell him to come on over and give me some lessons. ;)

OMGosh, Theresa. The nut doesn't fall far from the tree, does it? lol This is wonderful. He has really paid attention to your work. I can't believe he's just 8. I hope you frame this. This has got to be the cutest fall design. It's just like something you'd do. (except more inking) haha Hope your back is better and you can get a good nights sleep tonite. Keep your son interested in making cards. Maybe he should create a Halloween one. Just a thought.

This card is so cute.. such a cheery sun and love the clouds and leaves! Didn't realize it wasn't one of your fabulous creations until I took the time to read your write-up. I am truly impressed by your son's work!! AAA+++

Jeannie said...

I'm amazed. I'd expect an 8 yr old to over embellish. This is a fabulous card. Hunter should be proud. Has the contest (Creating Keepsakes maybe) for kids creations closed? He should consider entering if it's still open!

Jeannie said...

I just checked CK's site. The contest I was thinking of is for teens, sorry.
