Today we have something just a bit different….I had a whole different tag and whole different technique shot and nearly edited for today — and lo and behold, a stamp set arrived in my mailbox that was so cute I *had* to make it into a set of tags! It’s one I designed for Simon Says Stamp a while ago and it’s releasing today. Yes RIGHT NOW! Shopping links are in the dooblie doo here and on YouTube in case you, like me, fall in love with Bruce! If you want to watch the video below in HD on YouTube, click HERE.
Meet Bruce! Oh my goodness. He seriously has my heart in his little hand! (These are my names for the stamps – yes, yes, I talk to my stamps….so sue me for being weird!)
And here’s frightened little Jeremy….hiding in his mailbox.
And this is Wendell….he’s a little afraid someone will steal the gift before he gives it to you.
And Miss Penny…who is just so shy she couldn’t tell me her name, so I named her after my little crafting buddy.
You can use any water-based markers to do this – Memento, Tombow, Distress, Marvy….whatever you like! If you need to pick up some markers, I’ve linked to a couple different kinds in the supply list below.
And as promised in the video – here’s a quick idea for kids valentines using this set…the template for the matchbook card is from yesterday’s tag video…except on this one, I used a brad, and punched a half-circle to help it fit without running into the brad when it’s tucked in by little fingers. They don’t have to be colored nice like this with Copics, though – crayon coloring by your kids would be adorable. Fun, eh?
Have a SUPER Friday, everyone!!
