5/5/2015 class @CP2

This weeks card is too cute. 
I bought this Big Mouth set from Art Impressions during the convention.
They had several different characters to choose from.
There is a bit of a learning curve to get the mechanism to function properly.
I believe I've got it down and will share my findings with you.

Please bring your basic class kit
foam tape or pop dots
glue pen
gold or silver edgers
I used & will bring my watercolor pencils
you can bring any preferred coloring medium
craft mat
paint brush
spray bottle w/ water

That should do it! 

I want to send a big apology to
Geri Neumann who will be celebrating a birthday this month.
Geri I hope you can make it in on the 12th to celebrate!
May Birthday's
13 Lottie
19 Geri N.
Celebration May 12th
Snack provided by Jenna.

Thanks all, see you next week.

4/28/2015 class @CP2

Today's card I would say is gender neutral,
but it definitely needs to go to a coffee lover!
I broke out my brand new set of Tim's stamps,
Fresh Brewed Blueprints.
I decided to use two of the four images.
I also used some core-dinations paper I bought a few months ago
 and a new set of Spellbinder dies that I bought for a song & a dance!
I used two different sentiments, so you'll have a choice or
if you prefer bring your own!

Please bring your basic class kit
foam stamping mat
sanding block
non stick craft mat
water brush or paint brush
water spray bottle
brown edge
I used 
tea dye and fired brick distress stains
 to add a little color.
you can bring these pads or any color you'd prefer.

That should do it!
Remember today we will be celebrating 
Nancy & Joan birthdays.
Renee' will bring the goodies.

Today's card was prompted by this retro camera paper that I bought.
I love the Polaroid camera from Echo Park and
paired it with the Polaroid picture die from Sizzix.

I used stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn Critters at the park.

glue pen

I used watercolor pencils
water brush or paint brush
