Papelitos Anyhing but Square

There's a new challenge at The Papelitos Challenge Blog and it's right up my alley; Anything But Square.  As you know, shaped cards are my THING so I had a ball with this one.  I had many ideas, but finally settled on Devil.  Love his devious expression.  Ya know you can't win against the "House".  LOL 
Devil is colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped a top a shaped card made with my Cricut in Design Studio using the Father's Day cart.  The cards are paper pieced.  I was a little surprised that the cuts on Father's Day are mostly  outlines and to make a blackout base, you have to hide all the contours.  (PITA!)  Worth the trouble though, because I love how it came out.
The sentiment is computer generated on a hand cut banner with cool skully brads that add to the dimension.  There are lots of new images at the Papelitos Stamps Etsy Shop, and now until August 15, it's SALE time!  Buy 3 and get the 4th FREE.  Visit often, because there is always something new and Cris's eclectic style means there's something for EVERYONE.  There's tons of inspiration at the Papelitos Challenge Blog so pop on over and take a look.  There are prize winners every week, you don't have to use a Papelitos Stamp to enter (although we love it when you do) and at the end of each month, all those who entered the challenge with a Papelitos Stamp have another chance to WIN!  There's even a Freebie to nab on the Challenge Blog and our Facebook Page.  We currently have a DT call too and the deets are HERE.

I'm also entering this is the Paper Playtime Hot and Spicy with a Diecut or Punch challenge  (oh, come on, ya can't get any hotter than the devil, LOL), Whoopsiedaisy Die cuts and/or Punches, the Alphabet Challenge M is for Men Only, ATC's and Cards with Attitude Anything Goes, Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude Anything Goes, Simply Create Too anything Goes (2nd entry) and Di's Digi Designs No Squares Allowed.
