Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Today I wanted to share the treat bags I've made for my youngest son's preschool preview class he has once a week. I usually don't do punch art but I wanted a treat bag topper that would be fun for kids so I thought I would try and come up with something and this is what I did. The base of the reindeer was cut out from Soft Suede using the Sizzix Top Note die and scored down the center, the Chocolate Chip antlers are from the large Sizzix Snowflake die and were trimmed and cut apart to look like antlers. The eyes circle punches of course, the Real Red nose and Soft Suede ears were punched out using the small Oval punch with the ears trimed along one side to thin them down. The Kraft colored muzzle was punched out using the retired Key Tag punch and a mouth was drawn on using an SU marker. I made 15 of them and each Christmas treat bag was filled with a Hersey bar and mini candy cane.
Here's the whole herd of deer, I hope the kids like them!
I'm waiting for the delivery of my Stampin' Up new Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration preorder today and can't wait to share new samples with you!
