January Card Class (2017)

The cards this month are slightly inspired by Valentine's Day, 
but not so lovey-dovey that they couldn't be used for 
a different occasion.


I love this Taylored Expressions die and hearts can be used for several occasions.
This die is an exclusive one that only small stores can order.
I love to support companies that look out for the little guys!



This little skunk is a spinner card, he spins and slides along the track.




Christmas might be ending but winter is upon us!
The red cardinal pops on the black & white.
This scenery card is stamped on a shimmery wave paper, 
pretty impossible to see in the photo though.


The fish tank is actually a gel card.
The squishy gel makes the water look realistic!



Supplies to bring:
Adhesive runner, foam pop dots, scor tape, green Tombow glue, scissors, 2 pennies, 
and SMALL FLAT glue dots.
If you have these Copic colors please bring them:
T1, T6, R81, R85, B02, and YR04
  It cuts down on wait time.

Cost:
Cost for the 5 cards and envelopes is $17.00
If you pre-pay to hold your spot the class is only $15.00

Free Card Week #2 (Dec. 2016)

This week I have another free card to give away.
This week's card is another Christmas one, 
It's actually a little bigger than my normal size.  
This one is a 5x7 card and its on silver shimmer cardstock.
If you took my Christmas card classes then you know how 
pretty the shimmer paper I carry is.


The colors are silver, grey, and navy blue.  A little different from 
the typical red and green Christmas card.

You can get this card free with any purchase of at least $10
during the week of Wednesday, Dec. 21st - Friday, Dec. 23rd.
I will be closed on Christmas Eve.

I only have 25 of this card, so if I run out I will have
the Christmas girl card to give away.
All you need to do on her is color the wreath and add a 
little red stickles to the bow and berries.


Merry Christmas!

Christmas Card Class 2016

In this year's Christmas card making class 
we will be stamping 6 cards with envelopes.


I always love Christmas cards that have shiny metallic silver and metallic gold.
It's the one time of year you can get away with so much shiny metal.


We will also be doing heat embossing on both of those metallic cards!


We will be making a front stair step card that is 6x6.


Hard to see in the photo but we will be making the tree snow glistened 
with glitter.



The cabin card is on shimmer paper.
Its hard to see in the photo so I tried to get up close .  
Trust me, the shimmer paper is so pretty in person.


There will be a watercolor poinsettia
 because people never get tired of this technique!



The last card is a pretty angel that is also done 
with the shimmer paper with white on silver.


Again, the shimmer is so much prettier in person.


The inside reads a simple "Noel" for an elegant greeting.


Cost:
The workshop is $20.00 but if you prepay to hold your spot 
the cost is only $18.00

Supplies:
You will need an adhesive runner, foam dots or tape, scor tape (skinny works 
best on one of the cards), scissors, glue pen, tombow green cap glue.

Dates:
Thursday, Nov. 17th @ 5:30 pm. (full)
Saturday, Nov. 19th @ noon. (full)
Wednesday, Nov. 23rd @ 5:30 pm. (full)
