August Stop & Stamp Cards


These two cards are the ones we'll be making at Saturday's Stop & Stamp monthly event at GinaK's store in McFarland. Each month, I teach a modified make and take event. We do 2 cards showing different techniques and new products that we carry in the store. The cost of the class is $5 or free with a $50 purchase. The class times are from 10:30-3:00 on Saturday, August 23rd. I hope you can come if you are in the area!

This first card shows off a new line of paper we saw at CHA. We have several different paper packs from this company in the store. She'll be adding them to her online store soon. Gina's Halloween Trick or Treaters Card she shared here shows off another paper pack - all in Black & White. The paper comes in a 6x6 pad, is double sided and has a great lightweight feel to it - perfect for layering. It also has texture to it - a lot like the DCWV paper does.

The first card's image will be colored with Copic markers. We just began carrying two awesome ink pads for your Copics - Memento and Ranger Adirondack. They make using Copics a dream. This class is a great way to try out Copics if you haven't been able to do so yet.

This photo shows the inside of the card. Everyone will be able to choose the paper that they want to use from this paper pack called. We're going to be using the entire sheet of 6x6 paper - can you see how we'll squeeze it all in? The front will be cut to 4x6 and then scored and folded up to reveal the backside of the paper; the inside will be lined with a 2x4 panel; and the left over 2x2 square will have it's corners rounded and serve as a layer for the scalloped circle! WHEW - see no waste! No scraps! Yay!

Did you notice the dots around the Marvy Scallop Circle? It was made with some new Pentel Metallic Pens we found at CHA. They are really neat and great ones to add to your pen collection - if you're a pen addict like I am! I can never have enough of them! I pierced a hole in each scallop first and then went around the hole with the pink pen.

The last card shows off Ranger's Alcohol inks that we just began carrying in the store. Thank you, Gina! I'm so excited that we have them now! We'll also use a new Cuttlebug folder and highlight it with a Cream Chalk Cat's Eye - I actually used it to highlight the entire card. It also uses the amazing new Fiskar's border punch - don't you love it?

I hope you enjoyed the peek at Saturday's cards! Hope to see you there!
