The Biggest form of flattery!

Hi everyone...long post so get comfy...I know I've been MIA for the last few days but had to prep for my card class at Pickle on Wednesday, then headed to Windsor last night for a Costco run.

Anyhow...enough excuses I'll get on with it! I had the best bunch of ladies at Pickle on Wednesday night, after taking the summer off it was so much fun to see all the regular faces back, plus a new one! I asked all my ladies if they would let me take a pic of class, but you know how we alllll dislike ourselves in pics so I said I would blog about them instead! So for everyone who was there on Wednesday...I felt like a proud mom because everyone's card reflected their individual style and turned out just beautiful.

Here are the cards I am teaching in this current session of classes. Our theme is to use background stamps...I KNOW we all have TONS of patterned paper but we probably also have a TON of unused background stamps. So this class focused on using those stamps and NO patterned paper.

This first card uses a Penny Black stamp for the main image, embossed in gold and what I call 'faux watercoloured' with Tombows. The background was done with a Hero Arts Stamp and VersaChalk ink. The class had various backgrounds to choose from for their design, and a couple different ink colors. I tell ya....each one was totally phenom!

The second card emphasised on acetate. We created a card 'with a view' to the inside and incorporated distress inks and distress embossing powder.

Now for the best part. My BFF Pauline send me an eCard from SCS last night and I almost died! IT WAS A VARIATION OF A CARD FROM CLASS!!!! Betty was so inspired she did up the card in a couple different variations and I must say, both are SPECTACULAR! Betty, this is the most sincere form of flattery and I am so thrilled! You can view her gallery here.

On a final note...see I said it was gonna be a long post (that's what happens when I don't blog for a few days)...tomorrow Pauline and I are on our way to Novi to hook up with Paula. I'm sooooooo excited I won't be able to sleep! I'll be packin' up my bellas, pencils, copics and whatever else I can think of.

I love stampers!

Your classes are inspiring and fun - however the technique on your card is much better than mine. I will keep trying though. I was wondering how you knew that I had made versions of it. Look forward to taking more classes. Love your blog - enjoy your weekend.
