I had fun making these cards but I couldn't decide on a sentiment.
I will bring extra sentiments left over from other classes 
if you would like to use one.
I also played with Faber-Castell texture dots.
That is the dimension on the card.
We are using alcohol ink on foil.

Please bring your basic class kit
glue stick
paint pen edger
if you own
Alcohol Inks
felt &handle

That should do it! Hope to see you soon,

Today's card started out with a Memory Box die that I've had for a while.
Then I started looking for the perfect stamp.
I came across this Rubbernecker stamp from way back when, lol.
I always had issues lining up the stems with the blossoms.
But now I have a MISTI!
So I put aside the die, didn't work with this image.
Here's the first two cards I made yesterday.

Looked at them this morning and not happy.
Reworked them with a no wrinkle distress background.
Now I'm happy!
Love the sentiments.

Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft mat
spray bottle w/water
paint brush/water brush
gold/black edgers
broken china distress ink pad

That should do it!
hope to see you soon,

Today's card is perfect for your valentine or
to express your love to a dear friend.
This is a very cool technique and Sizzix has 
released dies that do the same thing.
I will show you how with the dies you already own!
There is a window in the gate fold card.
When it's closed it looks like the element is glued on top of the card.

When you open the gate fold you see the focal point is on the inside of the card!

Here are the two sentiments I will bring.
If you prefer something else feel free to bring it!
Please bring your basic class kit
bone folder
liquid ball point glue pen
black edger

That should do it!
BTW no February birthdays, we can stick to our diets this month!

2017 is the year of the rooster according to the Chinese calendar.
So I thought we would do a card honoring that.
I also felt the need to get inky.
So we are creating the backgrounds with distress inks
 and some random stamping.
I used colored pencils and a colorless blender pencil on the rooster.

Please bring your basic class kit
fired brick or any red 
wild honey or any yellow
tea dye or vintage photo or any light brown
Foam blenders for all colors
colored pencils
colorless blending pencil

That should do it,
see you soon!

Please bring your basic class kit 
stormy sky or any sky blue dye ink
blender w/ foam
Wink of Stella or any clear glitter pen
