Hey Ladies and Gents ,

I am so excited ...... I have COPIC MARKERS COMING ..... I practically chase the UPS man down the road and still no sign as of yet ..... "pout"
But on the positive note Reggie has been working away and he has posted a bunch of new products on the Website ...... We have fun flock in a bunch of exciting colors and My Little Yellow Bicycle papers and Doodads ..... Oh and my newest favorite thing Crafters Companion ROCK-A-Blocks ,
I am going to tell you that they are the best block I have ever used , the image is so clear and the detail pops out , I could not believe it . I tested what everyone thought about them at my recent class and they all felt the same way and ordered them .....
Oh and then to top it all off they have a spray coming out for CHA that will make it so that your unmounted stamps will stick without EZ mount and its super cool its a see it to believe it kinda thing . So check out the site and I almost forgot ..... TJSHIP for another week is going to give you free shipping anywhere in the USA ...

Stampendous Stretching Snowman




Hey ladies ,
Here is the directions to complete the snowman that we did yesterday . I had so much fun with you all and look forward to our next class together . We did all the water coloring and highlighting yesterday and some of you got to the step of cutting out . But if not you might want to apply your stickles before you cut the pieces out .
For some of you that are just checking in now on this you will want to start with 8.5x11 cardstock and your scor-pal you will score at 2 , 4, 6, 8 and the last fold is going to be a little wider then the others its the base that holds the snowman so the card will stand up .
Then you are going to stamp 4 - 5 snowmen in different shapes and sizes . How you do this is to stretch the snowman buy pulling on his body . Remember when you are taking him off the block start with his head first . The set is made of clear acrylic and they do tear if you are not careful .


Step One Adhere the larger snowman to the bottom of the first fold and then cut around his head and cut the rest of the fold out .


Step 2 Adhere the Skinny Snowman behind the first one , stagger them a bit "kinda like stairs" and then cut out the panel behind his head .
Step Three ... Once the panel behind his head is cut out you are going to adhere the third snowman staggered .

Step Four .... Take the last snowman which is the larger one and apply him to the inside and then Voila !!! you are done .If you would like to purchase this set its available on the rubber cafe website and if you put in TJSHIP in the coupon code you get free shipping .
