Christmas Card Class
• • • • •
Friday • November 16, 2018
Christmas will be here before you know it! Where will you
be with making those Christmas cards for your special people? It's never too early to start. We’ve have three of
them that you will absolutely love.
First, the serene church: it’s done in only one color of Distress Ink; I love water coloring with only one color, adding more or less water thereby varying the shade. Think of how much you can stretch your colors!!
Second is the Peace card. This card consists of using a number of Penny Black dies cut in shimmer paper to produce this lovely Nativity scene.
Third: This is my favorite all-time Penny Black Christmas stamp—the twig wreath. This is such a versatile stamp; so many ways to stamp/paint it. I decided for this card to paint the red berries in Distress reinkers, then add a touch of sparkle with stickles.
Reserve your spot now and get a jump on your cards!
Supplies to bring to Class: #2 Water Color Brush (or brush you are most comfortable for smaller format), paper cutter, adhesive (wet & dry), craft mat

Learn to Stamp
W/Cindy / $12
FRIDAY, NOV 24th
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.

LOOK FOR UPCOMING CLASSES
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.
