Well, today is the deadline for a challenge that Shanna posted on her blog, and it was definitely a challenge that I just couldn't resist! Anyone that 'knows' me, knows how much fun I have with my punches, and this challenge was just right up my alley!
Back on June 11th, Shanna posted a punch challenge. She has asked that we use a minimum of 2 punches on a project, card or layout. In her original post she used her punches on some cards to show us how fun they can be and how they can add the perfect embellishment for our projects.
Well, I like to take punches to a whole new realm and see what can be created from them other than what they actually are. I LOVE shapes and love to be able to transform them into fun embellishments for my layouts, cards and projects. I see shapes in a whole new light and I love the creating process it brings to me.
Here are a couple of the projects that I have created to meet Shanna's challenge:
This pail would be perfect for any Easter Bunny to leave your treats in. The bunny on the front of the pail is created completely of hearts, and an oval added for the egg he is holding. The heart punches are 3 various sizes by Marvy. (small, medium and large/Jumbo) His feet are actual a folk heart from a Sizzix die.
This second project is a plaque that I made for my scrap room wall. It uses a paper shaper flower punch and the Punch Bunch fern punch. The barrel was hand cut.
I also teach classes at my LSS, and this layout was done by request of some ladies that take my classes on a regular basis. I was asked if there was anything out there to do with Backyardigans, and upon looking, found the availability for scrap booking was not there. I decided to see what I could come up with and this is the layout I created. Each of these characters were created with a variation of punches, Quickutz dies and BossKut dies. They are my very own creation and I had so much fun coming up with these. I don't have children young enough, so therefore, I have no photos to put on this layout. Papers, of course are Bo Bunny....my FAVE!!!!
The bunny on the pail and the Backyardigans are my own original design and are to only be used for personal use. I do ask that if you scrap lift these ideas, to please link back to my blog post and give credit where credit is due. I also ask that you do not use these designs for monetary purposes. Thank you.
