Extra Large 2-Step Bird Punch Meets Stampin' Pastels

Something Old and Something New-

  • Revisit the Poppin' Pastels technique by rolling the Very Vintage Jumbo wheel with VersaMark ink, and then adding color with your Stampin' Pastels. 
  • Now, add something new with the Extra Large 2-Step Bird Punch.  Punch first a Perfect Plum Bird, and then Punch again with Sage Shadow.  Give the wing a little lift with a Stampin' dimensional.
  • Let your card take flight with the new Well Scripted stamp set and Kraft Taffeta.
  • Trim with the Scallop Trim Corner & the Scallop Trim Border Punches

Chocolate Bunny Happy Easter

Isn't this Chocolate Bunny yummy?  The weather outside here in Ohio is frightful. Winter is great, but let's bring on spring. This sweet little bunny is just the thing to chase away the winter blues.  Add a little bit of real chocolate, and we're set. 

  • Grass was stamped with the Inspired by Nature stamp set in Old Olive.
  • Create a spring sky by punching a scallop circle and randomly moving and sponging with Bashful Blue.
  • The Chocolate Bunny needs to be heat embossed with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and clear embossing powder to achieve to illusion of creamy, rich chocolate. Doesn't she make you want to take a bite?
  • Love the mix of script and print with the Well Scripted stamp set used to stamp Happy Easter.
  • The Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder, Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, and the Eyelet Border Punch add just the right combination of texture.

Is the winter weather giving you the blues?  Pull out your stamps to create your own version of spring.  If your itching for new stamping & crafting supplies shop without peeking your nose out the door at Robin's Online Store.

Have a fabulous day,
