And then you must go over to Helene's blog to see some beautiful cards from a class in Montreal. Here are 2 of the several cards shown on her blog posting. If anyone is able to 'showcase' the beauty of Magenta stamps, it's Helene and her students!

I had the pleasure of sitting in on Lisa's Make 'n Take session at another stamp store in Tukwila earlier today. Lisa used Memento Markers for the watercoloring, Versamark for the heat embossing and as a resist with Pan Pastels. I'll have photos for you tomorrow of her sample cards. I expressed a hope that Lisa would come to Art 'n Soul and teach the Pan Pastel technique.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to stop in at the store to see the latest Memory Box dies that were just delivered because they'll be going, going . . . gone! before you know it.
