Howdy! Here’s a little message from “The Herd”

???????????????????????????????I think this set is just too cute!  I was asked to make some children’s get well cards and of course this stamp set came to mind!  There is a little bit of coloring, but it’s just a great way to use your new Blendabilities.  Not sure if you can tell, but this is an easel card, which means the message inside is popped up so that it holds the front of the card up and open.  This was another card we made at this month’s Kismet class.

We forgot to get the mail yesterday, so this morning Peter brought me down this wonderful little red box full of adorable Valentine treat bags:???????????????????????????????Yes, it’s the January Paper Pumpkin!  It came with a 8 piece stamp set, a real red stampin’ spot and enough product to make 24 Valentine treat bags.  All I need to supply is the candy or what ever I decided to place inside the bags.  So cute!!  I send a Paper Pumpkin Kit to my grandchildren every month and they have so much fun with them.  I think that it’s rare that they follow the instructions that are included in each kit.  They use their creative skills and make their very own creations.  I think it’s a wonderful way to expand their creative side!

Here is the 5th card that we made at this month’s Kismet class:

???????????????????????????????Karen M. loves to do punch art.  When I saw this little guy on Pinterest I knew he needed to be worked into the class cards.  (Which also worked well for a children’s get well card.)

I have one little trick for you!  You may already know this one, but, to make the eyes I use our 1/4″ hand punch on white paper.  Then I punch around it with our 1/2″ circle punch.  I also use the 1/2″ circle punch to punch out a black circle.  I use our adhesive transfer sheets to glue the white circle to the black circle.  Add a little white gel pen and tada you have a pair of eyes looking back at you!!  I find it so much easier than trying to glue a 1/4″ circle to the 1/2″ circle.

Well that’s all for now.  I am getting ready for my Moon Lake Product class this Friday and my Super Saturday class this coming Saturday.

There are openings for the Saturday class if you are interested.

Happy Stamping!
