This Sunday is my Label Me Pretty card class. It’s my regular monthly 2nd Sunday class (from 2-4 pm) and I’m always excited because I usually have one or two new people who have never stamped before. It’s always so much fun to watch how excited they get the first time they put ink to paper. There’s this change that happens and that’s where the laughter and fun begins. It’s the “Look what I did!” and the “I didn’t think I was a crafty person” comments that I love most. I also like getting the emails later that night that say, “My husband couldn’t believe that I made that!”
The Label Me Pretty Bundle comes with a stamp set and a punch. I love punches, don’t you? So fast and easy to use and store. I like my Big Shot and all the dies, but show me abundle with a punch and it’s at the top of my Wish List. I also like that this stamp set is great for just stamping, but also for coloring. I used my Blender Pens to color the bouquet in this pretty Happy Birthday label. Won’t that be a fun new technique to learn at this Sunday’s class? RSVP to Sunday’s class by emailing me today.

Michelle’s TIP: With your ink pad closed, give it a good squeeze to “smoosh” some ink into the lid. Open the lid, and use the tip of your Blender Pen to pick up some of that ink.
