Everything is ... Awesome! Lego Movie Punch Art

by Joanne James25. February 2014 10:11

Today I have something special to share with you! As my regular readers know, I  live in a house of Lego! Well, not literally, but Lego is a big part of our family life - we have a massive brick collection and I have a 6 year old whose ambition it is to be a master builder someday. Either that, or a brain surgeon so that he can earn enough money to fund his ever-expanding Lego collection! Last week was half-term here which neatly coincided with the release of the first ever Lego Movie - a set built entirely from Lego that tells the story of the 'ordinary' builder Emmet who is mistaken for the chosen Master Builder and whose destiny is to prevent the world of Lego being glued together by the evil Mr Business. Of course the first of our half-term excursions was to the cinema to watch the new movie and Ben at least was not disappointed - he sat 'glued' to the screen throughout.

I decided to create another Lego punch art card to celebrate the release of the new movie and add to my collection (you can see some of my previous Lego punch art here). Here is my card:

Whilst Emmet is possibly the most ordinary of the characters, my card had to incorporate him as he is central to the movie. I used this week's layout over at The Paper Craft Crew PCCCS081 for my card and split Emmet's catchphrase in the movie, 'Eveything is awesome' across both the banner and the word bubble. I printed the 'Everything is' on my computer and matched up the colour to print it in Pacific Point, then stamped the 'awesome' by partially inking one of the stamps in the 'Yippee Skippee' stamp set. I used lots of different punches to create my minifigure and drew on some of the detail by hand with either my Stampin' Write black marker or my white gel pen and used a piece of pacific Point Brights DSP to add colour to the background without overwhelming the focal point.

I love creating this kind of card, although they really do take an age to make - a real labour of love. It was all worthwhile though when Ben took one look at the finished card and declared it "Awesome!" and promptly burst into Emmet's 'Everything is Awesome!' song from the movie.

Back tomorrow with something a little more traditional; until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks - I just couldn't resist! Ben absolutely loved it and doesn't want me to send it to anyone but him!

Thanks Jan - it's fun to do something like this every now and again. Haven't managed to join in with Paper Craft Crew for a while, but when I saw this week's sketch I knew it would be perfect for my card.

Thank you Pam for your kind words! I'd been wanting to do a Lego punch art for a while and when I saw the sketch it kick-started me back into the Paper Craft Crew challenge, which I haven't done for a while. Great to have made Featured Artisan!

This card is a stunner for anyone who's seen the movie - I just saw it yesterday for the first time! Please please - can you tell me how you made the mouth. It came out so perfect - did you really cut it out from a circle punch?
