Purple Cows HSN Blog Hop Today-Great Giveaways

*** I have two posts today, please check out my Crafter's Companion fairy Project***


Welcome,
I hope your here today to join our blog hop with  Purple Cows... We are going to be sharing several tools made by Purple Cows, this includes Wind It, Pin It, and Punch It
 
You should have come from Tanisha's Blog 
I hope you started at the beginning I wouldn't want you to miss any of the wonderful projects our talented team has to share.

 Purple Cows will be giving away the following 7 prizes
6. Wind It and wire
7. Pin It and assorted pins

Tomorrow April 24th, HSN will have the Pin It, Wind It, and Punch It featured during the following shows 12 AM, 8AM, 1PM,2PM,and 9PM EST. We hope that you will turn to HSN  and watch for the deals...they also have a website you can check out.

Let me get started by sharing a few projects using the Punch It

I used two of the Punch It's , but there are FIVE different designs available.
Are you ready to see what I have made?
My first project is a Get Well card with a quilted pattern. It was easy to do and fun to create a pattern just by turning my paper in the punch.
 Wanted to share a view of the markings and easy points of where to place your paper. I even punched the shape and cut off part of the pattern to make a matted design,and decorated the inside of the card.

I am entering the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge- Loaded with layers (I have 6)
Crazy 4 Challenges-Use black card stock
Delicious Doodles Challenge- Loads of layers
Scrapbookaholic By Abby-use black
Crafty Ribbons Challenge- Things with Wings (my fly)
PaperPlay Challenge- Animal Antics

My last project is an altered one using a wooden box I painted and crackled before decorating.
I made a design with several punches and matted this design and used to accent my box.
 Isn't this a beautiful pattern? I wanted to show how I punched the first time, then flipped the paper and lined up the first pattern and punched the next time.I did this several times to make the circled pattern.
This design went together so quickly, just matted each piece and added to my box.I haven't done anything with the inside yet besides adding the patterned paper to the lid...I was thinking I would add shredded paper.

I finished off each side with some flowers and some Dew drops from The Robin's Nest in each corner.

I am entering the following challenges:
Order of the Opus Gluei- Use Flourishes
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge- use a die cut/ punch
