Punch art Lamb and Chick

punch art

This is a cute little punch art lamb that we made for Stamp Camp a while back. I made a tutorial for it and a punch art chick. Enjoy!

Punch art lamb

These are the punched pieces you will need for the lamb.

Cut the oval, circle and word window pieces in half as shown.

Attach the oval half to the scallop circle as shown. Make the ears by attaching the two

half circles. Add the word window pieces to the back of the circle to make the lambs legs.

Add the 3 flowers for the wooly hair on her head and the two 1/8 inch circles for eyes.

The final touches are the pink flower and pearl and pupils, drawn in with a Basic Black marker.

punch art chick

Make an adorable chick with the punched pieces shown.

The little hearts from the owl builder punch make cute little chickie feet! Add the hearts

for wings and the blossom flower for comb. You could leave off the flower and add a bow

for a little girl chickie. 🙂

Fold the square in half to make the beak. I just cut a 5/8 card stock strip to make the

square for the beak.  Add the circles for the eyes as shown to finish. I decided not to

add the tiny white circles for the eyes but you can add them if you want your chick to

be looking a certain direction!

Happy Stampin’



New Ink Pads and Accessory retirement list!

retired list

Good morning everyone! The retired accessories list is out and there are some real surprises! Don’t panic when you see it! It is huge! We are retiring a couple of product lines (Decor Elements and Simply Adorned) and we are reconfiguring quite a few products. Many of the products on this list are at a discount, so grab what you need as soon as possible, because they are gone as they sell out. Stamps will still be available until May 31st.

So here is a little scoop about some of the products being reconfigured for the new catalog!! Our ink pads are being reconfigured! They will have a new foam pad, rather than the linen pad. I have heard from demonstrators who have gotten to play with them and they say, “You will LOVE them”! They give a nicer, bold image with very little effort (just a tap on the ink pad). I can’t wait to get my hands on them! They are in the same case, so they will still fit your current storage. They also come with a nice new label for the front of the pad, which I love.

Look for a single asterisk for all of the products that will still be available, but in a reconfigured package or style. Other things being reconfigured are our paper cutter, heat tool and package configurations for 12×12 card stock. Many colors will only be found in the assortment packs. So if you have some favorite colors you may want to check and stock up on those.

As always, you can call or email with an order or head on over to my online store to pick up those must have items before they are gone for good (and get some great deals while you are at it!)

Beautiful Wings Embosslit

Beautiful Wings

This is a card we made for Stamp Camp last month, using the Fresh Vintage Sale-A-Bration set. Very easy! This card is monochromatic. A technique where you use only one other color with a neutral color We stamped our background piece in Night of Navy ink and then added the butterflies and sentiment. I have been stuck on these white on white cards lately, but I can’t help it, I am kind of hooked!

I hope you get to stamp today!

It’s Time to Say Goodbye!

The Retired List is out and that means we are saying goodbye to some of our favorite sets. The list is pretty big this year, due to the changes in our catalog program. We will be releasing the new catalog on June 1st!! I can hardly believe it is that time. That is a month earlier than in previous years. The new catalog will be about 40 pages smaller, but the seasonal catalogs will be much larger. They will be 8 1/2 x 11 and will have more pages. There will only be a Holiday and Occasions mini catalog now, we will no longer have a Summer Mini Catalog. We will also be discontinuing our Decor Elements and Simply Adorned lines so that will make more room in the yearly catalog.

Check over the Retired List and get your must have sets, before they are gone for good! We will be releasing the Retiring Accessories list on April 25th. I did notice that all of the sweet treat cups sets were retiring, so if you want those, I would stock up now. When the accessories go, they go quickly and we cannot get more of those items.

April Stamp a Stack

Hello! These are the cards that we will be stamping for our Stamp a Stack this week. I originally had others chosen, but since Saleabration is over, I decided to switch up the designs. Please let me know how many stacks of which design you would like to stamp on Thursday! Please note that there will be alternate sentiments available for all of the cards and the last card will have several other image options. The background papers may also vary, depending on what I have on hand.

We will be starting at 6:00 PM on Thursday (April 12) at the Bixby Community Center. Please RSVP if you plan to attend. You may stamp one of each design for $10.00.  If you would like to stamp multiples of these designs, each stack is 5 cards of one design. The first stack is $7.50 and each stack after that is $5.00 or you may stamp 5 stacks for $25.00. Be sure to bring your own adhesive!

Contact me to RSVP!  Hope to see you there!
