Cards for class

I'll be teaching a beginner's stamping class in May. I wanted to teach folks how to heat-emboss, stamp an image, color an image, use pop-dots, and how to add embellishments like eyelets and brads to their cards. I'll be teaching this class at the David M. Mangelsen's Craft Store in Omaha. So, if you live in my area, and would like to learn basic stamping and coloring, you should come to my class!!

The first card is a wedding card. I cannot, for the life of me, remember who makes the bird stamp. I've lost the paper that was inside the packaging for this stamp set. The flourish stamp is by Inkadinkado

For this second card, I added pop-dots beneath Tilda (Magnolia stamp). The ribbon stamp is by Hero Arts.

The third card I made uses a combination of rubber stamp (Marilyn stamp by Stampinback) and acrylic stamp (Make a Wish by Heidi Grace) I want to show folks how easy it is to place an acrylic image on the card front because you can see-through the stamp. This is a little trickier with a rubber stamp, if your eye is not trained to align the stamp with the edges of your cardfront.

The last project I made is a stamped candle. This always gets 'oohhhs' and 'aaahhhs' at beginner's classes. I don't have a photograph to show you (sorry). But, I will be teaching this as an 'altered art' project for our newbies.

Any stamper would be lucky to learn from you, Ethel. This is a beautiful collection of cards using so many wonderful techniques. Fantastic.
