Welcome to Stop #10 on the first-ever Hopping Just for the Fun of It Blog Hop, where our theme today is All Holidays! If you’re hopping in order, you’ve just been admiring Patrice’s creepy-cute creations at My Little Patch of Dirt. Don’t your want to trick-or-treat at her house now? Me, I’m hoping for the gel pens!
If you’re an InkPaperStamps regular, you know that The Dog and I love punch art, especially when we can incorporate a Big Shot die or two.
So you won’t be surprised that today, we’ve pulled out our punches and our Sizzix Originals Stocking Accents die, a Stampin’ Up! exclusive from the new Holiday Mini. (To add to the fun, we’re also offering some blog candy!)
Today’s project was designed for the Stampin Addicts Fall Holiday Wow swap hosted by Yapha. Crazy us, we did punch art/diecut projects–and some fun folds– for six groups in her swap. Deciding which to share first was too hard, so The Dog and I asked our ace photographer and cavort-meister to make the call.
And here’s the one he picked:
While it was not my absolute fave of the bunch, I am pretty tickled with this creation–it’s crisp, colorful and goes together quickly. Plus, using gold brads as ornaments was fun. . . so much so that The Dog got a little huffed when I stopped at three.
