Fun, Fancy and Fabulous Stamping for Fall!


Stampin' StyleFUN & FANCY CLASSES:

I’m excited to announce the new Fall In-Studio Class Schedule!  We’re using a new format designed with the purpose of making it easier for you to take time away from your hectic life, relax and enjoy doing what you love.

My Fun & Fancy Classes are always on the second Monday of each month.  There is an afternoon session that runs from 1:00 to 4:00 PM and an evening session that runs from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.  In each of those sessions there are three options:


The Fun Option each month is just like my traditional card classes.  I provide EVERYTHING for you to create 4 to 5 trendy cards.  Each month is new and different and the cards follow the seasons and holidays.  Payment is accepted at class but RSVP is a must so that your card supplies are ready and waiting for you on class day. The price for this option is $15. 


The Fancy Option is a Project Kit Class.  Stampin’ Up! has offered some gorgeous Project Kits and I will focus on one every month.  The price for this option varies as the prices of the kits vary.  Prepayment is necessary so that your kit is shipped and waiting on you when  you arrive for class.


The Fun & Fancy Option includes both the card class and the  beautiful Project Kit offered that month.  The price for this option varies as the prices of the kits vary.  Prepayment is necessary so that your kit is shipped and waiting on you when  you arrive for class.

My classes are casual and a lot of fun – register for one or more today!  Class options and descriptions as well as registration/payment information is located at the Classes & Events link on my website or by clicking HERE.

Celebrate Today Wedding Card

My husband and I are attending a wedding today and I wanted to create a super special card for the couple.  Because I’m over the moon for the Celebrate Today stamp set and a new technique I used with it for my Stampin’ Up! Convention Card Swap I tweaked it a little bit and came up with this sweet card:

Wedding-Card Don’t you love it?   To create that dreamy balloon I stamped the image from the Celebrate Today Stamp Set in Soft Sky ink first.  Then I die-cut the balloon image out using the coordinating Balloon Framelits.  Next, using the negative part of the die (not the actual balloon die) as a stencil I lightly sponged the left side of the balloon using Lost Lagoon ink creating a shadow.  Finally I stamped the stars image with VersaMark Ink, dusted with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  My newsletter recipients will receive a full tutorial for this card listing the dimensions and supplies so if you would like one please subscribe to my newsletter by clicking the SUBSCRIBE button on my blog.

Here’s a pic of the card I created for Convention that inspired it all:
