Convention Classes

There are so many things to show you from convention and all the activities that surround the corporate events.

Tuesday night less than two hours after arriving in Salt Lake City, Stamp Across America held a class with eight cards made in two hours.  Each card was designed and instructed.  When you finished one card, you traveled to the next table, card and instructor.

Several of us had signed up for the Tuesday night and 8 a.m. class on Wednesday.  Here are a few samples I thought you might enjoy…


Love how the sparkles show up in this photo and how she had us trim the top two petals off the flower.  Makes the bloom a little more interesting.  Now look inside when you untie the cording…


Clever, right?  I hope to make my own version of this card and share the directions with you…so stay tuned for that one.  Maybe I’ll make a Christmas one since my preorder will be here Friday!


This was one of my favorites…The technique used was the painter’s tape to create the background.  Love that fox stamp, the silver thread, the simplicity and the color combo.  Perfect masculine card…


Another cute and clever card…the flower pot is made with the smallest envelope liner framelit.  Rather than chocolate the flower pot could hold a gift card…because the chocolate is gone!


The is my favorite stamp set Awesomely Artistic.  The  Delightful Dijon pleated layer is actually paper with the fibers broken down and placed on top of pleated Mint Macaron Lace.  The button with Linen Thread is the cherry on top.

All in all between the two classes we made 16 cards and had a great time both classes.

Here’s another photo of some of the gals in our group…


This was actually taken during the class.  You can see how the tables were set up.  Lots of fun!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


We did a lot of laughing last week…so I’m in great shape.

Get those fingers inky…you WILL be HaPpY!
