A few weeks ago a friend of mine invited me to join her for a stamping class at the public library. The class was hosted by a lovely woman who just happens to be a Stampin' Up demonstrator. It was great! Vicky showed us a bunch of card making techniques and how to use a bunch of tools. And the best part of the class was that we got to make two cards to take home with us! I can't wait to do it again.
The first card we made was the purple and green-- great color combo-- pansy card. For that one we were shown how to add a thin layer of ink with a blending pen to give the stamped image a painted look. For the second card, we used tools like sponges to apply ink and a scalloped punch. The second card actually has a pocket on the inside for placing a gift card-- oh so fun!
