Another card class!

Ohhhh..... totally fun!

I just got these Watercolor Garden Stamps from Art Impressions in the Paper Garden Projects store. I started playing with them and had so much fun I decided to design my whole card class around that set!

Really - they are just so fun! Its a series of clear images that you create garden scenes with. You stamp with dye inks on watercolor paper and then use a water brush to blend and mute the colors. It just takes minutes to create these wonderful little watercolor scenes.

For these cards, I used Ranger Distress inks and the new Memento Dye inks.

So for this class we are making a set of thank you notes and packaging them up in a clear gift box. Cute huh?

We are also making a couple Mother's Day cards. One is using the watercolor method, and the other is wet embossing. (I have some people who come to my classes who love embossing and are disappointed if they don't do it in every class.)

The embossed card uses the beautiful Victorian Flower stamp from Impression Obsession. Its embossed in copper and the background paper is Bazzill Bling.

The classes are the evening of May 1 and 2. There are still some spaces left, so if you are in the Philadelphia area and would like to join a fun group of stampers - just let me know!
