Stampscapes Class on Jan. 23

My class last Sunday was my best class yet!!!  We did four cards.  Three were pre-stamped and we worked on the coloring technique with the colorbox stylus.  The last card is one we did from start to finish.  Stamp placement and coloring.  I am including a picture of the that card.
I also have some pictures from my stampscapes class last summer which were taken by my very talented friend Jamie Miller.
My next class Feb. 20 will be four different techniques with flowers as the main theme.  If you would like to join my class please visit my website for all the information

Preparing for my next class.

I am teaching a class next Sunday and I have been busy preparing.  This class I will be teaching a coloring technique using Stampscapes Rubber Stamps.  We will work on pre-stamped images and also do one card start to finish.  This is one of my most popular classes.  If you would like more info visit the class section of my website you can also pay for the class there using you paypal account.

I also would like to share a card and a page I have done recently using Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink and Stampscapes rubber stamps.  I did the polished stone technique on the background of both the card and the page.  I heat set the ink because I was working on glossy paper.  Then I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder the pine tree several time as well as the words at the top.

Let it Snow!

Great day to rubber stamp in the south.  Snow, ice and freezing rain.  I have been very busy getting ready for my next class stampscapes coloring technique which will be Jan. 23.  You can check out my website for all the info in the class section
I am posting a simple stampscapes card I did in a class last Nov. which is a technique discovered by one of my students.  Thank you Doris!  This card has sold a lot of stamps and glitter for the store I work in.
The stampscapes cabin by the lake is stamped on plain white card stock with dye base dark blue ink .  Heat set the ink and then run it through the Xyron create-a-sticker machine face down so the adhesive goes on to the image.  Use a bone folder or ruler and rub it across the image several times before you remove it from the sticker   paper to make sure the adhesive is completely covering the image.  Remove the sticker paper and place the image in a coffee filter and sprinkle with Glamor Dust or fine glitter.  I really like the Glamor Dust.  Now you are ready to mat you image and attack to your card.  Try this technique with other stamps.  The over all glitter effect is very impressive.  You can stamp and color your image just make sure you heat set the ink.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a great holiday!
I am ready to stamp.  How about you?  I am posting today a birthday card I did for an employee at the store where I work.  It was done with Outlines rubber stamps, vellum and Bo Bunny Paper.  I stamped and embossed the flowers on vellum and I used a glitter pen and jewels to embellish the petals and center of the flower as well as the butterfly.  It's tied with ribbon so I can add pages so everyone can write a birthday message.
