At least I have been creating, and busy planning my classes for this year. I will be doing a series of technique classes called "Stamping 101" for those who would like to learn how to do more than just straight ink-to-rubber cards. You will be making a little journal to keep with a description of each technique and an example of it. Then we'll make a card or two (time permitting) with the new technique.
Here's one I've already prepared with a sneak peek for you:
I'm holding my Stamping 101 Classes monthly, with a day session and an evening session. Contact me to confirm your place!
This year I'm also running monthly Stamp Nights, where we get together and work on our own projects - a bit of "me time" and a good way to make a dent in the birthday cards, etc for the year ahead!
And here is a teaser for my fortnightly "before the afternoon- school-pickup" sessions at Gingerbella's coffee shop! Contact me if you are interested.
I have also made a few cards, here's one for a friend who requested a birthday card, in purple. Not my usual colours, but I might use them more now, as I liked the effect.
Here's a card I made for Makeesha's Colour Challenge - the colours were very vanilla, ruby red, blue bayou and chocolate chip. I challenged myself to use a stamp set I haven't used before too, and CASED the layout from the Idea Book & Catalogue:
Our neighbours have two lovely sons who are both having birthdays next week - so here are cards for them:
And here are some cards made with the stamp set I've chosen for my Projects by Mail this month: Live Your Dreams, to give you a taste.
