July Card Class

Check out my July Card Class!  This month I am teaching a class using stencils by Memory Box and I just have to say....I LOVE THEM!!!!  They are so fun to work with, and easy!  I am so excited to share them with everyone!!!!
 For this card I made a negative cut of the heart through my BigShot and I taped it down over my card.  Then I taped down the stencil and inked with a sponge and ink.  After I took the heart negative and the stencil off I used a fine point black marker and outlined all the stencil parts to enhance the design in the heart. Easy, fun and pretty!
 This one is pretty simple, I just used three stencils and made the pretty card:)
 I love this card!  The moon is so fun in the corner and a great splash of color!  First I made a negative of a circle punch for the moon.  Then I tape the tree stencil over the card and tape the circle negative over that.  First I made the moon and then I took the circle negative off and used 3 distress ink colors to do the background.  I love playing with the colors!!!!
This one always gets the most oohs!  And it is super easy!  I just taped the stencil over the card front and used four bright ink colors to create the awesome background!  Then after that dried I stamped the flower and the saying.  So simple and so bright!
 I hope you can join me for this class at Bayer's Pampered Stampers on July 31st at 6:30.  Only $15!!!!!

May Card Class

Join me on May 29th at 6:30 at Bayer's Pampered Stamper for my May card class.  This month my card class is going to be a little different.  I have taken a basic card sketch and we will make 4 cards that use the sketch as the basic skeleton of the card.  But as you can see, each card is completely different!  Using a sketch is a great way to get ideas flowing for a card!
This is the card sketch I used as the template for this class.
I found this sketch on www.freshymadesketches.blogspot.com.  That site has tons of awesome sketches to help you get your card mojo going!

Here are the cards we will be making for this class: (I even have a masculine card:)

I hope you can join me for this fun class.  The class is only $15 at is at Bayer's Pampered Stamper in Toledo.

Thanksgiving Yummies!

These are my most popular Thanksgiving yummies this year!

 These turkeys are so simple to make.  They are sporting yummy Hershey Nuggets!
These turkeys are covering peppermint patties.  These are simple to make also!

Both of these use one of my favorite and most used punches…the 1 3/4" scallop circle!  I have used this one so much that in the past few years I have gone through 3 punches.  If you do not have this punch, I would suggest you get it quick!  You will not believe what you can make with it!
