Puddle Jumper Fun - Lori Boyd


Happy Thursday all you DCRU Fans!!!
As you you know the Die Cuts R Us Design Team members periodically bring you 
Inspiration Posts, well, today is my turn and I am so excited for you all to see what I have for you!!

Ok, so by now, you have all seen the Puddle Jumpers, the stamps designed by 
me, Lori Boyd exclusively for Claudia and Company!!

You also know how fun they are to create with whether making a Card, a Scrap Page or a Project!  Yep, we have all stamped them beside their pet and Voila ...instant cute card, but have you thought about ALL the possibilities just 3 little Puddle Jumpers can offer!?!?!?
Well, I have and here are a few I wanted to share with you today:


Puddle Jumpers are perfect for making bright fun and cheery designs...



AND
Soft, vintage, shabby chic cards


You also know that they each come with their own little pet and that the pets can be 
interchanged as you can see in this card:
However, did you know that the Puddle Jumpers have even more interchangeable options?

They sure do and this is how I got started...
Color up your Puddle Jumpers and using your paper snips....just snip off their heads!!! Yikes!!!
That doesn't sound very nice...I know, but believe me you will be happy you did!!
Why, You ask??
Well, this is why:

Paper piece Daisy's head onto Emma's body....

Then, put Emma's head on daisy's body...
what about Daisy's head on...hee hee...Noah's body!!!
You wanna see more???
OK...here goes...

Try snip Daisy's pigtails off and switching sides...
Makes them look like brand new stamps... huh?!?!

So how many stamps are you REALLY getting, how many fun possibilities are there??
LOTS and LOTS, especially once you get all 3 of the new Puddle Jumpers being released on April 1st.
Yipppeee!!
This post was so much fun and I hope you all have a blast
designing and paper piecing your own Puddle Jumpers!!

Be sure to keep your eye on the Claudia and Company blog as all the 
April Release festivities are about to begin!!

I just got my Noah and Emma this week from the blog hop orders and I love them. I created two cards right away and sent them out. They really are cute, fun to color and easy to use. These cards are great inspiration!
