10/2/2012 class @CP2

As we enter October I am really struggling with the holiday spirit, hopefully it hits soon otherwise I guess I will be running out to buy cards, gasp did that really just come out of my mouth!!
So I wanted to play with some new items and I received an adorable candy holder from a friend, 
so I combined everything and this is what I got!
The box can hold some sweet treats.
Please include in your class kit,
bone folder
(black versafine & foam applicator if you have it)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'm absolutely loving this weather!

The last Tuesday of the month, Balloon Fiesta is just around the corner. 
With that thought in mind I thought we would make a hot air balloon card, 
my family loves to receive these!
So this simple card kept evolving, but I am happy with it,
we will be making an easel card.
Here is the card closed.
Here is what it looks like open.

Today's class kit please be sure to include
bone folder
eraser (white if you have one)
black edger (ink pad or pen)
foam tape or pop dots

Good morning everyone! 
Today's card is from the fabulous Mr. Holtz, whom I have a date with this coming Friday, I'm so excited to be able to take another one of his classes! 
If you  follow his instructions the technique works, I am always amazed. 
This card is from his 12 tags of 2012 and you can see his lesson here

Here's the sample, please take a look at the class supplies and bring whatever you have on hand.
I kept it fairly simple but this holds so many possibilities.
Class kit
blending tools (I have foam and felt)
non stick craft sheet
(BTW I'm missing my small Tim Holtz one)

foam tape
zig glue (liquid)

the following is to add texture to your piece,
piercer & mat
retractable ball point pen
credit card (from junk mail)
embossing stylus

sanding block or steel wool

Life is crazy!
Sorry about the delay in posting this weeks (tomorrows) card ...
Wax paper resist background, was going for that dried cracked earth look.
I have had this set of Stamp A Mania southwest stamps sitting on my desk forever,
time to use them.
Since the background starts out white you can bring any color distress ink and foam applicator if you would like to change it up! I will have the wild honey and vintage photo for you to use in class.
I used water color pencils to color the image, again if you would prefer a different medium, feel free.
Today's class kit
water brush or blender pen
black edger

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you tomorrow *Ü*
