This space will remain, but I will no longer be posting on this site.
Thanks to all of you who have visited and enjoyed this site.

Branch Out is one of our dormant stamp sets. I love the tree all by itself. Here is one of the cards I recently made with this set.

Here is another version using the new Modern Label Punch:
I punched out different pieces of the Cottage Wall DSP and colored pieces of card stock. The punched butterfly pieces are just attached the the lower punched piece with the small silver brads. You can fold the dsp punch piece to give the butterfly more dimension.
Summer...we'll miss you!

The grommets are so fun and very easy to use. Here is an example of the Jumbo Grommet:
My stampers made this card - which is a scratch and sniff card - at last night's Technique Tuesday class. With a foam pad behind the card stock, they just pushed the grommet through by hand and then used a small hammer or bone folder to push back the grommet prongs.
Making a scratch and sniff card is easy when you know the ratio of clear embossing powder to smell powder (in this case Lemonade Kool-Aid). The ratio is 1 and 1/2 to 1.
Here are the basic instructions for a scratch and sniff technique:
With the powder mixed and the card stock brushed with an embossing buddy, stamp the image in a VersaMark pad first, then reink the same stamp into a dye inkpad (in this case Crushed Curry), and then stamp the image onto card stock. Cover the image with the mixed powder, tap off excess, and heat emboss. Be careful as the embossing effect will not be as smooth as usual - the embossed image will look a bit bumpy due to the nonmelting powder added to the mixture. Kool-Aid (in the little packets), coffee granules, and spices work great for the scratch and sniff technique! Jell-O does not as it has too much sugar to give a strong smell.

Here is the unstamped leader card:Here is one of the stamped leader cards (you need at least 2 stamped leader cards):I used the 1-3/8" circle punch to punch out the stamped images for the leader. You will need to cut off sections to get to each column.
Then I punched circles with the 1" Circle Punch in Real Red (enough for 20 circles for each child). I put the leader board circles in bag and shook them up! After the children finished their bingo cards, we played a few games. It was great fun!
