LBBS 2 week Challenge #2 - Punch Me ;)

Guess what today is...Challenge day at Little Blue Button Stamps.
It is a two week challenge and this time we get to play with our punches :)
Go check out the LBBS blog to find out the rules and the prizes you could win ;)

Lets get to my challenge card.
I coloured up this cute image called Rag Doll Sweetheart with my copics.
Then pulled out a few of my punches and had a blast :)

I paper pieced her dress like no body's business, lol.
I was going to do a video on how I did that....but I forgot, lol.
So if you want to read how I paper pieced her dress, go check out LBBS blog where I tried to explain it as best I could...which may or may not be very clear ;)
And like I always do, I shade my paper pieced pieces (say that 5 times fast) to make them look more real and part of the coloured image.
This punch is from Stampin' Up. I love this punch, it is so cute.
I punched it out with the same pattern paper as her dress and then inked the separate pieces before putting birdie together.

I didn't have a sentiment stamp that I liked for this card, so I made up my own.
I printed it up on the computer and then adhered this die cut doily to the paper and reprinted it.
Same as I do for paper piecing my digi images.

Here is the inside of this card.
I wanted to still play with my punches :)

I made this little cupcake with my punches.
I used my cloud punch for the icing on my cupcake.
And used my tag punch for the cupcake wrapper. It is hard to see, but I also scored the cupcake wrapper and inked it to make it more defined.

Here are all the punches I used on this card.
Well technically I used 6 punches and 1 die cut.

I would highly suggest checking out the LBBS  blog to see how the other outstanding DT members have come up with on this challenge :)

I hope you have all had a creative Wednesday :)
