I wanted to bring you into my studio today (in Jasper Ga)
where I teach card making and all things Stampin’ Up!
I hold both morning and evening classes so you can easily fit them into your schedule.
Classes are reasonably priced or free with a qualifying order of high quality, color coordinated products that make crafting easy.
Do you need to have crafting experience? Absolutely NOT!
I love to teach all levels but have a special heart for the newbies.
It is so much fun to see their excitement when they realize they can create beautiful projects.
Great mother daughter time!
And a wonderful time with friends both old and new.
It really is a great place to find new friends especially
if you have just moved into the area or don’t know many local people yet.
You can bring your friends for a private class that’s designed around what you think would be fun.
Add some food and drink and make it a fun experience!
I guarantee you and your friends will have a great time chatting, laughing, snacking and crafting!
Sign up for my newsletter so you will always know when
classes are happening along with any specials.
Don’t live in my local area…you can still be a part of my ‘To Go’ Classes.
I mail out the same packets you would get at a local class.
They include all the card stock and designer paper cut and embossed,
The embellishments and ribbon and of course the envelopes.
A video and written measurements and directions in pdf form
so you can easily duplicate the projects latter.
Today’s card was featured in one of my Simply Beautiful Card classes. An easy way to make a beautiful card is to start with beautiful paper. In this case I used one of the prints from the Whimsy & Wonder 12″ x12″ Designer Series Paper. Whimsical ornaments in pinks, blues and greens with the added element of shiny foil. (So shiny it was difficult to take a photo)
Start with pretty paper and layer it with colors found in the paper. I used both the Misty Moonlight and Mint Macaron. It’s what I love the most about Stampin’ Up!’s products…the color coordination.
The sentiment was embossed with White Embossing Powder on a label from the Ornate Frames Dies. It’s a really nice set of dies if you are looking for frames and labels for your sentiments. Foil leaves were cut using the Pierced Booms Dies. This die set is my absolute favorite! It’s a stand alone die set that makes beautiful stitched flowers and leaves! The silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim was tied in a double bow to add that little bit of special!
Sometimes, do you just need a pretty card in a hurry? Well, today I wanted to share a quick and simple card I made using the Nature’s Harvest Bundle. Yes, this set has bonus dies and is fun to color but the Nature’s Harvest Stamp Set and one ink pad will allow you to create a card just like this one.
Choose one of the pretty patterns in the Harvest Meadow 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and then do your stamping in that color. I choose one of the Misty Moonlight patterns and then stamped in the same color. Look at all these pretty choices of patterns!
I offset the blue with the Cork 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper to add some texture and another color. And then I decided to put a little twist in the layout instead of making everything straight. Does that little twist come easy for you or does your brain just want it to be straight! If you need it straight just make sure you cut the cork a quarter of an inch larger then the stamped layer.
