Papertake Weekly - Punch it out

Hey everyone!! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week Dawny is asking us to PUNCH IT OUT!! No dies allowed this week!! OMG! Are you KIDDING me???!!! LOL!! We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl!  LOVE that shop!!! 

So.....as you can imagine...no dies ALSO means no Silhouette die cutting machine!! ARG!! I'm LOST!! haha  so I went for a PAP from good old Martha, and added one of my new Art Impressions stamps, and called her done!!  This image from Art Impressions is called Main Squeeze (sku# 4360).  The top part of her is put on a wobble. So FUN!!! The stamp set even comes with a wobble! I also paired her with "Gimmie Hugs".




Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the gorgeous creations by the design team, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!!

Papertake Weekly Papertake Weekly :)


I'm sorry...did I repeat myself? :)  That's our new challenge over at Papertake Weekly! Repeat something, anything...on your project! We are sponsored this week by the fab folks over at Whiff of Joy!

For my project today, I'm showing you more of the wonderful new Mini Front & Back stamps that were just released at Art Impresssions! I used the Snowman and Penguin set.  They're so much fun and I love how they work on a tag!! For my "repeat" I made not one tag, but two and used a Magnolia tree twice on each tag back. I also cut the window frame twice for each tag.


The tags and widow frames were cut using the Silhouette


The trees are a Mangnolia die and the snow is Snow-Tex by Deco Art.

 
This little penguin is so stinking cute! :) But I didn't do a very good job lining him up. LOL!
 
 
So that's it for my repeat performance today! LOL! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the GORGEOUS creations the design team has come up with for you today. You're going to drool all over the screen! And then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon. Hugs!
