Craft: Thumb Bunny Card (Handmade Card) | Mother's Day Cards -- Homemade Card Ideas for Mother's Day

As every parent knows, kids have a knack for leaving their fingerprints on everything. Now they can use this incredible skill to crank out a whole mess of adorable cards. Materials Paintbrush White acrylic paint Paper plate Colored card stock Black and pink markers Instructions Use the paintbrush to spread a thin layer of paint on the bottom of the paper plate -- this will be your ink pad. Have your kids dip their thumbs into the paint and print them on the card. Their thumbprint will be the bunny's head. For the ears, have them press down only half of their thumb to make a long, skinny shape. After the paint dries, they can decorate the face with markers, adding whiskers, eyes, and a nose. Use a black marker to write "Some bunny loves you!" on the front of the card. Tips: Even a really yo

Rubber stamp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rubber stamping, also called stamping, is a craft in which some type of ink made of dye or pigment is applied to an image or pattern that has been carved, molded, laser engraved or vulcanized, onto a sheet of rubber. The rubber is often mounted onto a more stable object such as a wood, brick or an acrylic block. Increasingly the vulcanized rubber image with an adhesive foam backing is attached to a cling vinyl sheet which allows it to be used with an acrylic handle for support. These cling rubber stamps can be stored in a smaller amount of space and typically cost less than the wood mounted versions. They can also be positioned with a greater amount of accuracy due to the stamper's ability to see through the handle being used. Temporary stamps with simple designs can be carved from a potat

Parchment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Central European (Northern) type of finished parchment made of goatskin stretched on a wooden frame Parchment is a thin material made from hide; often calfskin, sheepskin or goatskin, and often split. Its most common use was as a material for writing on, for documents, notes, or the pages of a book, codex or manuscript. It is distinct from leather in that parchment is limed but not tanned; therefore, it is very reactive to changes in relative humidity and is not waterproof. Finer-quality parchment is called vellum. [edit]History German parchmenter, 1568 Parchment was developed in Pergamon, from which name it is believed the word "parchment" evolved,[1] under the patronage of either Eumenes I, who ruled 263241 BCE; or Eumenes II, who ruled 197158), as a substitute for papyrus, which w

The Cutest Custom-Illustrated Holiday Cards! - Living in the Family Room Blog

I just found the best solution to sending out a family holiday card without the hassle of trying to get that perfect photo--Dear Ida Cards. The adorable cards come from a husband and wife company started this past summer in Portland, Oregon. After years of sending out their own handmade cards, friends and family encouraged them to start a company to create custom-illustrated cards. It's simple to get one of your own. You send them photos of your family (and your pets if you'd like--check out the card they did of Martha's dogs above), choose a background for your card, and within two weeks your beautiful cards arrive. I love the charming illustrations, bold colors, and great paper quality not to mention the size of the cards. I was thrilled when mine came the size of a business envelope. 1
