Simon Says.......PUNCH IT OUT!!!!

This weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is to use PUNCHES on your creation. I wasn't feeling very creative when I made this first card, and only used my scallop circle & circle punches. Sorry!!! This card uses the Simon Says Stamp exclusive set called Deer with Forest Family. I wanted to create a little scene so I ripped some green paper for the hills, popped out the mushroom and added the skunk and porcupine.



So, I felt bad for not putting 100% effort into that card above, so I made another one....this one I am much happier with!!! I used a puzzle punch and some flower punches! I punched a bunch of puzzle pieces out of scrap paper and glued them to the background sheet. I then stamped the love note image (Magnolia) & popped out Tilda. The sentiment is printed on the computer then punched out with the puzzle punch. I hope you like this one better!!!


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will join us this week for our challenge!!!! Go take a look at the other DT members PUNCHED projects...you won't be sorry!!!!!

Oh Chris, you are much to hard on yourself...your first card was very fabulous and cute! I love that Simon set...the animals are adorable! But I will say your second submission is gorgeous too...I love the "love you to pieces" sentiment with the puzzle pieces!
