This is the Hero Arts stamp I used:
Tomorrow, I'll post a pic of how I completed the card. I hope some of the students will bring in their finished card so I can share their creativity with you. These are very easy cards to make. Try it . . . you'll like it!
I want to thank the students who underwent a marathon session of card-making. The pop-up card took a lot of time, and I had a couple of supply challenges that everyone was extremely gracious about. The best part of the class was seeing Alissa taking part in the class . . . she's looking great! and Anna Joy appears to be running out of room so Alissa is hoping that the end of the month comes soon for Anna's debut.
One of the cards we made used the Memory Box window die. Before the class, Patti had finished a beautiful card that will be part of a boxed set she is making for a United Way holiday raffle.

Patti even added 'snow' on the inside corners
of the windowpane. And don't you love
the beautiful corner die she ordered at Art 'n Soul?

Taking the already 'perfect' card, Patti
added a wreath sticker she bought to give the card its' final touch!
We both agreed it really was the perfect finishing touch that
makes the scene look so 'homey"!
If you haven't taken the time to look through The Artful Stamper catalog, I highly recommend that you do it within the next couple of days because the order is shaping up and will be submitted soon. You can go to their website to look at their stamps (www.artfulstamper.com); however, you will need to click on each image individually so an enlargement pops up that allows you to see the image completely. It's a lot easier to look through the catalog at the store. Either way, we hope you will be enthused with the variety and quality of stamps from The Artful Stamper as Susie and I are.

Susie brought in a 'pointalism' card from an Outlines Rubber Stamp that make a perfect fall card.

last year, Deb K. had zentangled it for her Zentangle class . . . remember?
And here's another sample card from the store . . .
|by Dianne Johnson|
Clever how Dianne used the left-over leaf punchouts from the border punch to
scatter on the card. And she used her 'signature' product . . . Candi!
That's it for tonight. I have more to share with you tomorrow!
