  VID01558Hi Everyone! I have seen these coffee/drink cozies being made and FINALLY got to make them over the weekend. I have a Video Tutorial for you too!

As you all know, if I can sew it, so can you! Plus I love that the designer fabric is EXCLUSIVE to Stampin' UP!

Special thank you to all the demonstrators who have made and shared their HOW TO's on this project. I took a little bit from here and there and this is what worked for me the best. And another BIG thank  you to my mother-in-law who spent a couple of hours with me as we both made our first cozies! Our cozies were on both our drink glasses at work today, we were so proud of them LOL.

Punch Art Bunny

Hi Everyone! Here's another punch art bunny! She's holding a very fancy Easter Egg which as been embossed with Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and sponge daubered with the current In-colors of Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Whisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade!

All the bunny parts were daubed with Pretty in Pink ink. Bunny part punches from top down:
Ears - the 'leaf' images from Blossom Builder Punch
Face - 1-3/8" Circle Punch
Paws - 3/4" circle then punch again with the Scallop Oval. Bring the circle in from the top of the punch opening so only part of paw gets a scallop look.

Assembly: All with Tombo Multipurpose Adhesive unless noted.
Layer ear parts. Adhere to back of head. Adhere nose (snipped triangish piece). Draw face with fine felt tipped black marker. With top of dauber (round sponge head) make rosy cheeks! Adhere fancy egg onto chin area of face. Draw paw marks on with marker. Adhere to egg with Stampin' Dimensional foam dots.

Creative Cafe' Team February Swap Cards

Hi Everyone! Here are my Creative Cafe' team's swap cards. We made an extra one for Dawn and she was so excited to get them! (Wish the other team members could have made the meeting but understand how busy schedules can be.)


Here's Lisa's card. So darn cute!and you all know how much I love the stamp set Everybunny! Pool Party card stock and Dazzling Diamonds are so pretty together too! I loved how she carried the DD down through the flower showers.











Davette's card is one of those OMGoodness cards! It's interactive and so many layers and details it's simply amazing! Everyday Enchantment Sale-a-bration Exclusive Designer Paper has to be one of my all-time favorites too. Love it! 











Joan was an honorary team member for the day ;) and joined us in swapping! Her tone on tone with Whisteria Wonder is pretty wonderful. If you look closely, you can see where she cut banners out of the embossed section. TFS with us Joanie!






Here are a few things I received from Dawn as my hostess thank you's. That's what fun about having a Stampin' UP! workshop...the demonstrator spoils you! Click on the Thumbnail to see the next image.
