Something ,,,,, Punched :-)

Hi again ,,, this is my 2nd post today and after this the next few will be scheduled so I hope Mr Blogger does his job and publishes for me :-)

We are welcoming 3 new teamies to the DT :-) Carissa, Heidy and Sarah :-) Welcome aboard girls :-)

This week the theme on the Stamp Something Challenge is ,,,,

SOMETHING PUNCHED ,,, so use any punches and die cuts to join in !! :-)

we are sponsored by the lovely Katharina at Whiff Of Joy so a fab stamp on offer this week :-)

For my card I used this very cute WOJ Happy Birthday Gnome. I used a Spellbinders large labels die cut to stamp him on,coloured him with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey Sweet Threads and a Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossed panel. I used a Martha Stewart Arched Lattice punch I distressed all the edges with distress inks and a paper distresser. I then plugged in my machine and sewed all the edges. The gorgeous ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and I used a Tim Holtz Addage Ticket and some Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish. I did try to add more embellies but nothing looked right so I left it simple Smile

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous creations for your inspiration so please pop by the Stamp Something Challenge blog to see them ,, but before you hop on over please leave me a comment so I know you came by :-)

The postie arrived yesterday with a parcel from the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and inside it was this oh sooo cute House MouseFull Of Hot Air’ stamp and I just HAD to ink it up !! This is the current HM stamp of the month for June :-)

I followed Jill’s fabulous sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge,, thanks, I will definitely use this one again Smile

I coloured the image with Copics, inked the edges with red chalk ink, added a few drops of Star Dust Stickles here and there and used Glossy Accents to the candle. The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I kept it simple and just added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. I did add a gingham bow to the top L corner but I preferred it plain so I removed it,,, luckily I didn’t tear the paper cos I had stuck it on with a glue dot !! the sentiment is a clear stamp from Papermania.
