Hellooo! Just wanted to share a Father's Day Card I made for my sweet man last weekend. He is such a good dad and wonderful husband. He has been into cooking lately and the boys got him a meat cleaver! He wanted one to chop things up with! I am not complaining as long as he wants to cook!
The other pictures are from my Embossed Canvas Cards class last week. We had a blast creating our little embossed masterpieces! I hope you join us for another class soon!

Grad Party Favors and Cards

Good Afternoon, Bloggers! I just wanted to share some graduation cards I made and little cupcake picks my girlfriends and I came up with for the grad party. For the cards I used a Hero Arts clear stamp set called, Many Dots. I just stamped the dots in different colors along a winding path. I love small images like this for making quick cards. Try it at home and remember to use at least 3 colors and stamp your images in odd numbers like 1,3, and 5.

Good luck!

Okay, so a student/friend brought it to my attention yesterday that I hadn't updated my blog in awhile. So I signed in to check it out and relized that my last post was Christmas! Whoopsie! I will try to be better! I meant to update when the new class schedule came out in May and I never did. I made a promise to update tonight so here I am!

There are some really cool classes at The Stamp Art Shoppe this session. Patty outdid herself with two awesome nature themed projects, some wonderful steampunk themed projects, and her "Going Green" series is going strong. Betsy is trying her hand at tranferring her wonderfully creative talents to some really unique card projects this time around. I highly encourage you to try their classes. You will not be disappointed in the creativity these gals will pass along. Evelyn is up to her usual greatness with a trio of fabulous classes, she never disappoints! Lovely Linda has her usual favorites, Stencil of the Month, Pergamano Card of the Month, Glitter classes, and Basic Cards with Basic Grey. Miss Karen Brooks is teaching Contemporary Art Journal and she also has some cool collage 3-D projects too! Our fearless leader, Sandy has a few classes this session as well. I am continuing with the Mastering the Basics series and I added a new one this time. It is Mastering the Basics #4. All the Mastering the Basics classes are great for both beginners and those who need a gentle refresher on some basic to intermediate techniques and they do not have to be taken in order. I also have some classes using Sticky Back Canvas. You can't believe how many things I have discovered we can do with this stuff! One of the classes is Embossed Canvas Cards and I still have space available in this class! The first one is next week! You may have missed Alcohol Ink Bootcamp. It was back in May, but I probably will be repeating it next session so keep your eyes open for that one. Perfectly Pearlicious and Shabby Chic Style are two classes that have been popular this time around. I think they are both full, but check in at the Shoppe to be sure. Also, be sure to put yourself on the wait list. If we decide we can fit another one on the schedule, we will know who to call! I brought back Macho Cards for the third year in the row and it was accompanied by Color His World, a class designed for those of us who just want to color! It had a masculine theme this time, but it will probably be kind of seasonal in the future. Those classes are passed as well, but the samples are still on display on the website and at the store for ideas. Check them out at the Website in the classes gallery! http://www.thestampartshoppe.com/
