Sneak Peak - November's Class

Here is one of the cards that we'll be making in the Coffee Break class - It is fun cause the front is punched and the coffee mug is stamped on the inside! Super easy to do but a little different from your normal card - The Coffee Break stamp set is acrylic and in the class you will get your own set (11 images and sentiments) and we will use ALL the stamps in it!

Palm Tree Bag

This is the class I taught back in July - Today's high is only going to be in the 40's so I needed to remember when it was warm! I loved making this simple bag - it held 2 cards that had embossed rectangles on the cover - It makes such a difference to emboss the cards - such a easy step that really jazzes it up! The two notecards are simply stamped on a 1/4 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock. This type of simple notecard is what I keep handy for teacher notes or quick thank you's. Naturally, the 4 envelopes are stamped too!! My favorite thing is the sentiment - "Have a Splendiferous Day!"

Flower Girl -

I like this card cause I made it for my husband, Corey. That's supposed to be me - (wish I was that cute - SIGH) I colored her dress with a purple marker then used a Signo Uni-ball marker to make her polka-dots white -

Happy Mermaid!

Well - here she is~~~ My first AMuse image - the mermaid. My SIL Jen got her for me and I love to use this stamp! I've stamped her on shimmery white paper and embossed the edges with my Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. I colored her with Koh-i-noor Pencils and shimmered her tail, shells and flower with a Gelly-roll pen - I outlined her with a Copic marker to kinda get that "in the ocean" look. Kim sells this pretty aqua shimmery paper in the store but I unfortunately cut that part off when I made the card - doesn't that just about figure?!
Quick, fun card!

First Post -

Hi - I'm starting a stamping blog -
I'm going to feature cards and projects that I'm making for Serendipity - The is a picture of a class I taught earlier in the year featuring A Muse stamps - they are such easy stamps to work with - The teabag actually holds 4 teabags! Fun to make - I copied the look of an actual teabag (took several tries to get the top fold right - I'll admit it!) I paper-pieced the saucer to match and masked off the bottom to stamp the oval for shadow.
