9/2/2014 class @CP2

Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Labor Day!
Growing up on Long Island the beach was a short drive away.
When we were younger my mom would take us to Jones Beach most days of the week
 and some days we had all three meals there. That was a wonderful time.
So I guess I'm longing for those wonderful beach days.
This weeks card is again filled with lots of Tim's goodies.
I think I'll send my mom this card!

Please bring your basic class kit including
non stick craft sheet
ball point glue pen
brown edger

I used the following distress inks and foam blenders
you can bring these if you own them
salty ocean
evergreen bough
broken china
vintage photo
old paper
bundled sage
tumbled glass
frayed burlap

This new stamp and die just screamed summertime!
Stampendous has been making some wonderful stamp and die sets.
I paired it with an all time favorite background stamp from Hero Arts.
The flowers were water colored with distress reinkers,
so each one comes out slightly different,
just like in nature! They are bold and beautiful.

Please bring your basic class kit
non stick craft sheet
water bottle
water brush or paint brush
black edger
if you have distress reinkers I used
spiced marmalade
festive berries
mustard seed
peeled paint

That should do it, see you Tuesday & 
enjoy your weekend.

8/5/2014 class @CP2

Oh my, August already, 
guess I should start thinking about holiday cards but I'm just not ready!

So I saw this adorable set from Lawn Fawn called Critters in the Dog Park
and new I just had to have it!
Too cute, I think I will get a lot of use out of this set and it also has matching dies!
critters at the dog park

My mom's beloved pooch has a birthday coming up,
 so I thought I would make a card to commemorate the occasion.
Don't they look like they are having so much fun?
I used some very old scrapbook paper so the patterns and colors will vary 
but we will cut our own Polaroid frames.

Please bring your basic class kit
water brush or paint brush & water
black edger
whatever coloring medium you prefer,
I used watercolor pencils.

That should do it!

August birthdays will be celebrated on the 12th,
