Punch It - Hambo Hoedown


Time for another Hambo Hoedown folks and this weeks challenge is to use your punches! Remember those? :) With so many dies on the market, a few of our punches have collected some dust. So, dust them off and play along!

I am ready for summer and the 4th of July at the beach, so I used a super fun stamp called Uncle Ham and the coordinating sentiment.

Isn't he cute? I colored him with Copics and used Flourishes Bookplate die to cut him out.  I traced the die around him and cut him out leaving the sparkler and flag to stand out.  Paper Studio paper was used for the bg and the stars were punched out and layered.  I finished off the sentiment using Memento Paris Dusk and some self adhesive metal dots and some ribbon from my stash.  The hat is and sparkler sparkle by using some Spica pens and a Sakura pen.  Here is a closer look:

Don't forget about our customer inclusive blog hop on May 24!! Today is the LAST day to sign up to join along in the fun.  And it will be fun!

Our theme is "THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS" where we will be showcasing Hambo clear, rubber and digi images.  Using any Hambo image, create a project that represents and depicts the name of a (professional) band! Maybe it’s your favorite group, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like! Whatever it is, we want to see your BAND NAME creations! You do not need to have the Band name on your card or project, but please put it in your post.

TO SIGN UP, please send an email to with "BLOG HOP" in the title BY MAY 15. Once we receive that, you will receive all the low-down on how to participate!

Please do not sign up if you can't follow through with it.
It takes a lot of time to organize a hop, and those that hop with us don't want any broken links! We had a lot of fun with our last customer hop, and hope you will join us! 
Oh -- and did I mention prizes?

Have a super day!!
