Sprinkle Magic! By Judi Kauffman for The Queen’s Ink

They came, they stamped ATCs and envelopes, they laughed, they compared projects, and on Saturday, February 25, 2015, thirteen students did what they thought they couldn’t do: They drew faces!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, they drew faces. And I have photographic evidence…
This is a quick blog post, no projects with instructions, just a few words. It’s mostly a shout-out to everyone who joined me for ‘Over the (Rubber)Moon’ – my first-ever class for The Queen’s Ink that started with stamping and ended up with drawing. (I called it doodling so no one would be intimidated, and it worked!)
Thank you, thank you. You were wonderful. It was fun. It’s a privilege to teach such creative and special people in such a unique and inspiring setting.
And here’s a shout out to Her Majesty, Patti Euler, for the chocolate malted and for making the store such a special place. And one to Terri for her seamless handling of everything out front.
And kudos to Kae Pea from RubberMoon for making it all possible with custom 4-stamp sets to include in the class fee. Without your ‘dream maker’ stamp it couldn’t have happened! The simplicity of that classic stamp is the starting point for more than anyone could have imagined. Having the ‘whimsy doodle border’, ‘sprinkle magic’, and ‘starstract’ stamps in hand just added to the joy.
If there’s interest, we’ll repeat this class again in the summertime. Meanwhile, I hope you’ll sign up for Spangles & Dangles and Magic Stamp Part II – A Cut Above, two classes I’ll be teaching in March and April.

Here’s to my firm belief that everyone is inherently creative, that we can ALL go forth and Sprinkle Magic!!!


  1. Wow! Great images! So uplifting and whimsical!

  2. Wonderful! Makes me want to play, too!

    1. I hope you will! Stamping, doodling (drawing) and coloring really are FUN!
