It's Day 3 of the class so I'm a bit behind. Not in viewing the instruction but in practicing my techniques by making my own.
It's also WOW Wednesday at Cat's Creations. You have a chance to win some blog candy if you leave me a comment and you get another chance if you link up your blog to Cat's Creations blog. Check out the others who have linked up. You won't be disappointed! I find great inspiration but visiting!
On to my blog...
Day 1 first class was taught by Kristina Werner. I didn't have the supplies she used but they do encourage you to use what you have on hand but supply a list of what they use. She made a 3x3 gift card. It was a lot harder for me than I thought. 3x3 is REALLY small! Kristina said these are great for gift cards.
She also showed how to make envelopes for these cards but I did not have the tool she used to do that. I may try to figure it out later.
The next class was taught by Jennifer McGuire. She gave some tips on making multiple stamped cards. This was way cool and easier than it looks.
This is where the Fiskars Stamp Press I got from Cat's came in handy! There are two sizes and I have both but I prefer the smaller on and that's what I used for this card.
This technique will only work with clear or cling foam stamps. My first card I stamped the images individually. To make the other cards place the stamps on the images with the same ink then place the stamp press over the top and press until the stamps cling to the press. Then ink the stamps and press on the paper. Do that step for each ink color used.
I used Tim Holtz Distress ink "Weathered Wood", "Tumbled Glass" and "Broken China" and snowflake stamps from Hero Arts that I also got from my LSS (Cat's).
I stamped the sentiment with a SU stamp. The hearts are from American Crafts Stamp Collection "Clear Stamp Blue Skies" and used TH Distress ink "Festive Berries". I also scored the sentiment paper to give it some interest.
Ok...I'm off to do my homework for Day 2 and watch Day 3's instruction. Have a good one!
