Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Animal Images with a Punch.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Mickey Moore’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

When contemplating what I would create for this event, I couldn’t get the idea of punch art from my mind, so I settled on the idea of creating something popular at the moment with children. I thought it would be nice to have an Australian theme so I decided on Bluey, the Australian Blue Cattle Dog cartoon character from the show with the same name. If you are not familiar with it, you should look it up, it is an international hit with young kids. Below is the card I came up with.

By a quirk of fate, my daughter surprised me with her new Blue Heeler puppy, Willow, a few days later. Pic also below.


I decided to do up a chart showing the way I created Bluey.


And…here’s Willow!


  • Stamps: – On the Horizon
  • Inks: – Memento Black, Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce,  Basic Black Marker
