Witch-y calling card!

  Hello!  I have a punch art post to share with you today! After pulling out my Pennant punch yesterday and playing with it I got to thinking about other uses for it.  I thought it would make a super cute witch hat and since every witch worth her salt needs a sporty hat I started playing around with it!  After I put together a hat I decided she would also need a broom!  Take a look:

All from the Pennant Punch!  Pretty witch-y, huh?! Simple card!  Versa marked the background with the witch boot from Spooky Bingo Bits and faux stitched the edges using the paper piercer tool. I grunged up the card by sponging it with Chocolate Chip and tattering the edges. Added a scalloped border to the bottom. and some rhinestones because even witches like to bling it up! 

Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits
Paper: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, More Mustard, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip
Punches: Word Window, Pennant Punch and Scallop Oval
Extras: Paper piercer, White Gel pen and Rhinestones

I punched one pennant out in black and one in Rich Razzleberry.  I trimmed the RR berry down using the scallops as my guide. I punched out a scallop oval and made a slit in it using a craft knife.  I tucked the top down into the slit and glued it in place and there you have it, my pretty!

To make the broom I punched out one pennant and a word window punch. I added a small strip along the top and adhered it to the word window with a glue dot.

Hat pieces.

Broom pieces.

I cut several strips into the broom and ran it across my chocolate chip ink pad. Easy, peasy!

I always get excited when I can use a punch for purposes other than what it was intended for!  I am sure this punch has lots and lots of other uses to just waiting to be discovered! :)
