Papertake Weekly - Cut it out!


Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge, and this week it's "Cut it Out". So you can use your punches, die cuts, or just cut your image out with your scissors! We're being sponsored this week by the fabulous Wendy over at Digital Delights by Louby Loo! I chose to use this absolutely adorable penguin from Kraftin Kimmie called Oliver! I fell head over heels in love with this little guy as soon as I saw him last year and had to have him. Well it just so happens that Kimmie sent me another Oliver stamp in my Guest Design Team package, so some lucky person out there is getting ready to win him! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 11:59pm Friday night, November 26th, and I'll pull a lucky winner sometime next weekend!


Oliver is colored with Copic markers and then cut out and popped up for dimension. The hearts were cut from Nesties and the icicle punched border is from  a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is computer generated. I used Bazzill cardstock for the base, Kraft cardstock for matting, and the PP is from Nitwit Collections. The red pearls are Kaiser and the ribbon is May Arts. That's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see what the rest of the fabulous designers created for your viewing pleasure. And then grab your paper and glue and join us in the challenge! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and for those of you that are in the States, I wish you and yours a Very Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win Oliver!

Thanks for the chance to win this adorable chubby "lil" fella ...
He's sooooo cute & I have the perfect sentiment to go with him ... If I don't win him I'm going to go grab him & stick him in my shopping cart .... He's too cute not to be added to my collection. You've colored him like a dream & with him you've created the perfect little scene.
Love that red hat & the Nitwit papers,punches & pearls add the perfect touch...
Hugs, Janie

Hi Sharon!!
How are you feeling? Sure hope much much better as it is your holiday time and Thanksgiving!!
Oh man I love this little fellow! My dad and I had a joke about penguins for most of my life. I wish daddy were still alive, he would really like a card made out of him.
I would love to win him to make him for my Grandson and tell him the 'story' of his great grandfather and the
'penguins' :o)
Thinking of you and wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving ~
