There will be 5 various occasion cards with envelopes.


Thinking warmer weather with the clouds and sunshine backgrounds.

Inside reads: Relax it's your day


This shaker card also has some glossy, shiny raindrops on it.
It's a bit hard to see on my photo but the effect is very cool.
 Inside reads: Sending you some sunshine

The flower card is using one of the Concord & 9th Turnabout stamps.
Once you learn how to use these stamps you will want to try them out 
with all your inks for different color combos.

a Mother's Day card... this would work!

April Card Class (2018)

We will be doing a couple techniques in the April card class 
this month.
Two of them will be different ways to use the Tim Holtz distress
oxide inks.


We will be doing a background for the stitched stars on the alien card,
gives it that outer space look!



The other oxide technique is hard to see in my photo,
but its perfect for the pool.
We will also be putting a glossy finish on it so the colors brighten up,
and a glaze pen for the sunglasses so they look shiny too.




We will be doing another Snappy card, you will be learning some
Copic marker shading on this one.
I love how the dies on Heffy Doodle stamps not only cut out the image but 
also cut out his hands so he can hold things.


The Squeekheart set is also Heffy Doodle.
The dies work the same way on this one too.
The inside reads "Hope your feeling cheddar soon".


The new peekaboo background from Lawn Fawn is too cute,
I just had to use them with the kids waving.
This is closed...

 This is with the windows open...


Supplies needed:
Adhesive runner, foam pop dots, skinny scor tape, glue pen, baby wipes
You will need Copic colors: G14, YG03, T1, T3.

We will be using copics on all the cards so if you have your set feel free to bring them,
you might have some of the colors we are using.

Cost:
The class is $18.00 but if you pre-pay to hold your spot the cost is only $15.00
