Today I´m taking part again in the Papier Turnier Bloghop which means Paper Tournament :) Judith from Austria organised this Bloghop that takes place every 2nd Thursday of the month.
Melanie or maybe you´re starting on my blog. Make sure to visit all of the blogs to get the full inspiration and ideas from all the very creative ladies taking part.
This month´s theme for the bloghop is using a punch on a project ( Handstanze in german). This months Bloghop screamed my name soooooooooooooooooo loud it was probably able to be heard all over the world lol
I´m a huge Punch fan....I have a pretty big collection of punches on my wall and I love to do punchart of all kind or to come up with my own. So there are 5 different punchart elements in this Project.
Let´s start with the front of the card. The base is a Soft Suede piece of cardstock, folded in half. On this I matted a piece of pumpkin pie and on top of this I stamped my own DSP using the maple leafes from the Perpetual Birthday Calender Set and stamped them in crushed curry, pumpkin pie, tangerine Tango, peekaboo peach and real red to create the little kinda ombre effect.
In the middle I placed a circle in craushed curry that has it´s edges inked, topped by a whisper white circle that I stamped with small colorful leafes on the bottom. I then stamped punched out a tree with the Sprinkles on Top stamp set and the tree builder punch and I put the tree crown on dimentionals.
Arround the Circle I stamped Happy Fall with the Layered Letters Alphabet Stampset in Early Espresso Ink.
Now to the fabulous inside of this card. I picked a technique that is pretty on trend right now. The Pop Up Panel card. Voila!!!
For those that follow my blog for a couple of years this little fellow won´t be a stanger. This little guy runs by the name of Mr. M.B. Hedgeh-owl!!! He was born in 2012 ( 4 years ago wow!)He is made using the Owlpunch. I have an entire blogpost and a written and videotutorial for how to make this little guy and you can find both here.
Number two on the panel is this little fox I made using the Fox Builder Punch and the fitting stampset. The eyes are again from the owlpunch. The cardstock is whisper white and pumpkin pie.

This little guy isn´t a stanger on this blog either.He is the perfect star for your thanksgiving cards. I even made 2 blogposts on him ( one once again with a video tutorial) and you can find them here and here . I used the color family DSP for the feathers and i loved how it turned out.
|cute little acorn|
Last but not least comes the cute little acorn punchart I came up lat year when the acorn builder punch was released together with the Acorny Thank you stampset. Isn´t he just soooooooo cute. I will make a tutorial of how to make him maybe after the awesome Onstage local event I will attend in 23 days. YAY!!! as he will be with me there and many of his siblings :)
