February 2017 Card Class

Hi Everyone,

Come join us for a fun morning of Stamping and make beautiful cards that you can send to friends and relatives!  This Feb Class will run at different days and times throughtout the month of Feb. 2017.  We will be making 4 Cards - 1 Valentine/Anniversary Card, 1 Masculine Card and 2 all occasion cards. All occasions cards are cards, which you can basically use for different occasions, just by putting different sayings on them...such as "Happy Birthday", "Thank you", "Get Well", "With Sympathy", "Thinking of you", etc.  This Class will be easy enough for beginner stampers and interesting enough for more experienced stampers. I allow 2 hours for this class, but some of you will finish before this time and others will need the full 2 hours.  The fee for this class is $20.00, which is a bargain just for the cards alone (these cards will be unique, high quality cards!), but you will be learning valuable techniques and get to use all the latest in equipment and supplies. 

WHERE: 7 Iron Forge Road, Parsippany, NJ 07054 
FEE:        $20.00
WHEN:    3 Sessions: Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017 at 9:30 AM
                                  and/or Tuesday, Feb 21, 2017 at 9:30 AM
                                  or Friday, Feb. 24, 2017 at 7:00 PM

Valentine Heart Card and Bookmark

On Feb 11, 2016, I did a Valentine's Day Class at a local Library.  I met some amazing people, both teens and adults and had a wonderful time watching them be creative with this card and Bookmark.  I provided them with two different sample cards and bookmarks... but they came up with so many more creative combinations.  They used different stamps, ink colors, and placement of the main heart.  It was fantastic seeing the many different versions of this card and bookmarks.


Special Birthday card!

This card was made with the Party Pop-Up Thinlits die, Balloon Bouquet punch, Birthday Bouquet DSP (Designer Series Paper) and Balloon Celebration Stamp set.  I love that you can use the set to stamp a balloon and then use the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch it out.   I love that you can either use the Party Pop-Up die on the front of a card as an embellishment (by cutting out the cake) or inside as a pop out.

"Tea Time" Card

I have always loved "Tea" cards but most of the stamp sets in the past have only included the cups and not the Teapot.  This cards was made with the Cups & Kettle Framelits and the Have a Cuppa DSP Paper Stack.  There are so many pretty papers in this stack!

Two more Fancy Flap Cards

Fancy Flap Cards are so versatile.  You can put the flap on either side of the card and you can make the card with two flaps instead of one.  There are many ways to keep these flaps closed...you can use buttons, slits, and belly bands.  I've also used Two Way Glue sticks to make the flap into a kind of sticky note.

Botanical Blooms Cards

These cards use the new Botanical Blooms Stamp Set in Occasions Catalog.  I think this is my favorite set in this catalog!
