2018 June Card Class

Since I was out of town in May, we’re doing an early June card class to be sure and get a Father’s day card in. This can also be made into a birthday card. We’ll also be playing with the Stamparatus to make a multi-stamped butterfly card – so easy!

Celebrate Happy Birthday

I was excited to try out my new stamping tool, the stamparatus, for this card. It’s great for repeating an image like this Happy Birthday. It makes doing this card very quick and easy! Hint: We’ll be doing some 3-step stamping with this next month.

Blossoming Basket

A card for Mother’s Day using the Blossoming Basket stamp and a little coloring. I like how the Basket Weave EF coordinates with this stamp set. We used a little ink on the embossing folder to make the basket weave pop.

Yes, we are using the Waterfront stamp again! There are just so many ways to use it! Here is a simple card that looks like you have watercolored your picture, but it’s just stamps with a little bit of blender pen.

2018 April Card Class

What happened to our Spring??? At least we’ll be doing cards that will remind us what spring is supposed to look like! We’ll be doing a Mother’s Day card, which can also be a birthday card and we’ll also be using the Waterfront set to make a sympathy card. I’ve added a new tool to my card making room called the Stamparatus. It’s great for lining up images and for doing repeat stamping. We will be giving this a try for the first time in class too.

This is such a versatile stamp set. From mountains to beaches! The background is done using stamping blocks that are inked and then spritzed with water. Such a cool effect.
