You may have come here from Brandy's blog or you may be a regular reader. Either way, if you want to start at the beginning of the hop or if you get lost along the way - you can find all the links HERE.
One day this week, kid who lives at home (boy, does she need a better name) and her best buddies were BORED so I suggested they grab a cookbook, pick a new recipe, do some grocery shopping and cook my dinner. (My $ for the shopping, of course)
It was a great idea. They learned something new and I didn't have to cook. They made me a very nice dinner. But that got me thinking about recipes and then recipe cards and well, of course, a punch project.
He isn't hard - here is the "how to"
Head - modern label
Hat - scallop circle trimmed -look at the photo,count the bumps at the top - that is how much you leave when you cut.
Nose - wing from two step bird
Moustache - curly label next to curly label hole - (if you have your punch upside down you can see what you are doing)
Arms - pieces of oval ring (large oval punched around a small oval hole)
Hands - circle from itty bitty shapes pack at the tips of the modern label
Body - 1.75 circle snipped at neckline with circle punch (size not that important -1 inch or 3/4 inch - it won't matter)
Soup pot - approx 2 inch by 1.75 inch rectangle - stuck bottom corners as far as possible into 1.75 circle to round them - Let me clarify - I have the biggest SU circle punch upside down and I put the rectangle into the circle's opening so that only a corner is "in the punch" - push in as far as you can and PUNCH. Repeat for the other bottom corner.
I really was just going to have the chef adding carrots to the pot...
But being near the "tail end of the HOP" - I couldn't resist making a rabbit tail end.
Rabbit rear - 3/4 inch circle in soft suede
Rabbit tail - puffy from itty bitty shapes pack in very vanilla
Carrots - narrow Heart to Heart cut in 1/2 in tangerine tango
Carrot tops - leaves from Two Step Bird in always artichoke
Base of recipe card is Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler (both available July 1) - Don't all these food names make you hungry when you craft? yum, cobbler sounds really good right now.
When I do get around to adding a recipe to this card, I can just rename the recipe I choose "Not Rabbit Stew". Oh don't groan at me - it will bring out a chuckle every time I look at it. And lord knows, I need a chuckle if I am having to cook something.
Now keep on hopping to see what Kelly Mayou, the Weekend Stamper, has created for you! It is the weekend - she is bound to have stamped something (unless her blog name is an evil lie and she punched something instead). You won't know unless you go check it out right HERE.
Looks like we have a missing link - so after you check out Kelly - click HERE to see the final blog on the hop - Loni Holt. She has blog candy so you don't want to miss it.
Enjoy the HOP!
