July Technique Class-NEXT Thursday, July 12th at 6:30 or Friday, July 13th at 12:30 p.m..

Next Thursday, July 12th at 6:30 p.m. and next Friday, July 13th at 12:30 p.m. are the June stamp club/Technique class meetings. As usual, class is $10 or free for 6/$25 Stamp Club members, $5 with a $25 order or free with a $50 order.

Please let me know by Tuesday, July 10th if you are able to attend or not and also if you’d like to join the 6 month/$25 stamp club for July-December. (I’ll have a small gift for July-December Stamp Club members.) I hope to see you all for some fun summer stamping! 

One thing will be done a little different this time....We'll try to do the majority of our Big Shot pieces first/one at a time which will hopefully save us some time.  If it doesn't work, we can always change back next time.

The first card is a CASE (copy and share everything) of a swap card I received from Paula Wright here:  I added a book mark using the Big Shot Apothecary Accents framelit (I trimmed off the bottm) and essentials paper piercing pack, added a bit of light pink and changed the ribbon to make it a technique class card.  The Reason to Smile set is only $5 with a $50 purchase in the month of July.  I think you'll enjoy this card and this set!

Next up is a watercoloring Himalayan (they're blue) Poppies card using the Pleasant Poppies background and Papillon Potpourri sets.  First, we'll emboss with clear embossing powder and Black Craft Ink. Then, we'll watercolor and you can decide if you'd like to use the Elegant Butterfly punch (which will remove the antennae or cut it out as I did, preserving the antennae)

This Summer Silhouettes card uses Emboss Resist after which we'll add Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder for glittery shine and plenty of rhinestone bling.

This Betsy's Bloom set card was made using the MOJO248 sketch, and we'll double cut the framelit to make it slightly narrower.
