Learn to Stamp
by Cindy / $12
Saturday, September 8th • 1:00 - 3:00p.m.
In this class, you will learn 3 stamping techniques and you will get the opportunity to use a die cutting machine to make an adorable gift card. The first stamping technique involves marking directly on the rubber using dye based markers. For the second technique, you will stamp with dye based ink pads and color in with colored pencils and chalks. You will be using gold and clear embossing powder for the third technique. You will melt the powders with a heat gun and color the image in with markers. I will also be teaching you how to watercolor using markers. The final technique involves the use of a die cutting machine. You will cut a die and use the same machine to emboss cardstock using an embossing folder.
Cost $12. All supplies will be provided.

Distress Oxide Ink Cards!

Friday • September 14th • 1:00 - 2:30p.m.
Tim Holtz/Ranger has released 48 out of the 60 Distress line
of OXIDE Inks. Now you have absolutely no reason not to try
them. Wait until you see how these colors mix and cloud
and do all kinds of beautiful things on your paper. THEN
they do this OXIDE thing in front of your eyes!!!!! Notice that the colors do not ‘muddy’ on the paper. Each keep their clarity. These are very similar to alcohol inks without all the smell and mess. Well, maybe without all the smell.
This is a great way to find out about Distress Oxide Inks.
What are they? How are they different from regular Distress inks ?
I’ll be showing you the effects of using different types of paper when using Oxide inks (not shown in picture) so we
will be doing additional experimenting behind the scenes.. The first card uses glossy paper and is ‘polished’ using a Ranger product you may not have used before that brings
out the intensity of the colors and makes the paper water proof. The second card we will be using some Oxide scraps that have been woven into a Memory Box die on the front of the card. Save those scraps!! The possibilities are endless.
Lastly, we will ‘tone it down’ and create a gorgeous rose by Penny Black. I’ve used this process before, but we will now be doing a bit of painting as well. This will create a water color effect. I’ll top it off with some stickles that add just the right amount of sparkle.
I promise you will learn something new in this class even if you have taken classes from me before.
Supplies to bring to class: Paint Brush: #1 or #2 Round, paper cutter, scissors, adhesive (both wet and dry) and craft mat.

Skies & Landscapes
Alcohol Ink using

THIS IS SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!! Alcohol Inks are the most 'addicting' mediums I know of. You never know what you're going to get. Using all of the beautiful colors available to create the beautiful skies is a joyful experience.
In this class, we will be using the alcohol inks. Additionally, we'll be using the mixatives (white, etc.) and metallics in both Adirondack and Pinata inks. Adding metallics to your landscapes gives them an entirely different look. Some of the metal actually 'flakes' as it mixes with the other ink as it flows on the paper.
We will be concentrating on creating different skies/landscapes by mixing different colors as well as using COMPRESSED AIR!! (You know, the compressed air used to clean out the keyboard on your computer.) Now let's have FUN with it instead! This process forces the ink to dry quickly and pushes it across the paper, creating clouds and different textures.
I will also show you how to mix different colors together; keeping their clarity to create a moody sky using the special 'tools' provided. You’ll be able to take one of these special ‘tools’ home with you. All included in the price folks.
You will make a 5 x 7 painting and then a few smaller pieces depending on how you cut them. We will be painting on Yupo paper which is a completely wood-free material. All of the paper, compressed air, inks, etc., will be provided. We will not be stamping during class. The images below are provided as examples only. Only bring what is listed below. Class size is limited. Come and try something new. Bring your friends. Make some new ones!!! I KNOW this is something you have always wanted to try. And you should.
If you took my first class (Alcohol Ink Landscapes), this class will be easier for you, however it is not a requirement. I will continue to give this class in conjunction with that one.
NOTE: IF ALCOHOL FUMES GIVE YOU A HEADACHE, PLEASE GIVE THIS CONSIDERATION BEFORE SIGNING UP. WE WILL BE TAKING FREQUENT BREAKS AND HAVE FANS BLOWING THROUGHOUT CLASS.
SUPPLIES: Paper Cutter & Paper Towels, a
Flat brush size 4-6. Make sure you wear 'old clothes'. Alcohol ink will stain. I will provide all the supplies you will need to make the images.
