Bunny Paper Clip / Bookmark

Jeri designed this and we made it at her make and take. Just oval punches and round punches for the face and ears. The nose is the spiral punch. I used pink chalk to color in the cheeks and a black Stampin Write Journaler to draw on eyes and freckles.
I think the ribbon is Groovy Guava.
Jeri said she found these jumbo paperclips at Walmart. I found some flatter/thicker ones at Borders that are really cool and I will make some bookmarks out of them and post the photos one of these days.

Lots of Thoughts Card

I love this card! We made this at the Mimi Meeting (SWAS). I don't know who designed it. The little purse is made by using punches. The bottom of the purse is made with the square punch. The top flap of the purse is made with a circle punch, and you just cut the circle in half. Then tape a ribbon on the back for the purse handle. Then punch through the whole thing with a cropadile and set the brad. The brad is a square rhinestone from page 189 of the catty. The paper is the Ginger Blossom designer paper.
Stamp Set: Lots of Thoughts (from the Sell-A-Bration Catty - now retired).

Sticky Note Holder / Key Chain

We made this at Jeri's Make and Take. It holds a pad of little sticky notes. Sorry I don't have the instructions or name of the retired Stamp Sets! All I know is we used Black Craft Ink on the letter and embossed it with Iridescent Ice EP. We used the Cropadile to punch a hole through the entire thing and put a jump ring on it. Then we tied the ribbons on. This little thing can be used as a key ring, or it can be attached to your purse (or you can just throw it in your purse).

You Crack Me Up Card

This card was made at Jeri's Make and Take.
Stamp Set: A Good Egg (page 30 of Spring/Summer 2008 Catty).
The egg was embossed with Iredescent Ice Embossing Powder.
The blue paper was run through the Crimper.

Blooming With Love Card

This was made at Jeri's Make and Take.
We used the Watercolor Wonder Crayons to color in the
images (page 183 of catty).
Stamp Set: Blooming With Love
Mother's Day was about a month ago and I still haven't mailed mom this card. I am the worst daughter EVER!!!

Embrace Life Card

This card was made using the cracked glass technique. This was made at Jeri's Make and Take. First you smush the little white square in VersaMark, after you stamp the image and color it in with the stamp and write markers. Then you sprinkle the embossing powder on there (page 187 of catty) called Glassy Glaze Enamel. Then you heat with the heating tool. Then you repeat it 3 more times!!! Then you put the little white square in the freezer for 10 or 20 minutes, I can't remember - but it wouldn't hurt to do 20. Then you gently crack the paper by holding each side and bending it in different places.
Stamp Set: Embrace Life
