I thought I'd try making a shaped card for this little bunny. He's one of the critters from my Cute Critters Punch Art Class. I used the largest heart framelit to make the card base and the second largest heart to cut my DSP. Once I put the bow on I found I also liked the card on its own so I've posted both versions
GUESS WHAT! It’s time for another PUNCH ART CLASS....24 punch art cards,interchangeable inserts that hold gift cards or treats and a card box to put them all in.
And here’s the twist....you’ll only need ONE Designer Series Paper Stack for every 8 people with no leftovers. Whether you’re a Stampin’ Up demonstrator or simply a lover of punch art this class is for you.
I hope you’re as excited as I am! Here are the details....you’ll get full color photos, cheat sheets, step by step instructions and videos for each critter. I’ve also included a punch art video full of tips to help you get the most from your punches.
Here are some additional features
You’ll get photo tutorials for cutting your Card Stock and Designer Series Paper.
For those of you who like videos I’ve included one for each critter showing how it’s assembled.
If you like keeping it quick and simple I’ve posted the cheat sheet and card sample for each critter so you can click on the photo and save it to your computer without downloading any documents.
I’ve included individual instructions you can download for each critter with a sample photo of the card, a cheat sheet, supply list and step by step instructions so you can make one card at a time.
If you’re planning on holding a stamp camp I’ve included instructions on class set up so you can use one set of punches for a large group of people.

These little fabric flowers were a big hit at our stamp event the other night; they were especially popular with the participants who didn't sew. I cut the pieces with the Tasteful Trim die. Just gather the straight edge of the strip with a needle and thread. I like sewing these flowers to a scrap of card stock so I can glue easily glue them to a card. Scroll down for the video tutorial.
Since I did the post on making your own envelopes I've been getting a lot of inquiries about how to seal them. Here are a few of options that I like to use.
If I'm hand delivering a card I like the recipient to be able to open the envelope without distroying it so I use a handmade semi-permanent glue dot.
To make these I save my wax sheets like the ones that mini glue dots or rhinestones and pearls come on. I put small dots of Tombow Multi Adhesive on the wax paper, let them dry at least overnight and they’re ready to use. They will hold the envelope shut but since the dry adhesive is semi permanent you can open your envelope and reseal it over and over again.
You can also apply Tombow multi adhesive or the two-way glue pen directly to the envelope and let it dry. Once the glue is dry it turns into a temporary adhesive as well. Just make sure the glue is completely dry before it touches anything or you'll have a permanent bond.
For envelopes that I’m not planning to seal right away I use narrow strips of Big Shot Adhesive. The adhesive comes in 12”x 12” sheets. I cut it into strips approximately 1/8” wide and use about 2”-4” of the strip along the edge of the flap. I leave the backing on the adhesive until I’m ready to seal the envelope. (Note: The adhesive backing you see pictured in the photo is the wrong side. The backing you'll be leaving on will be white but it didn't show up well in the photo)
I've added 2 new categories to my blog; Simply Scored and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.
I've posted a few videos using Stampin' Up's Simply Scored Diagonal Plate and will be posting more as I make them. There are so many fun projects you can make with this cool new product that I thought it deserved it's own category.
Since I don't want to bore my followers by featuring the same product in every post I'll have to pace myself. You can check out my Simply Scored Diagonal Plate posts here or scroll down to find it in the categories in the right hand column
