Paper: Masking with Vellum: Offset Stripes …and a giveaway!!

June 21, 2012

Hey there stampy people! Did you get the memo? There is a new stamping class in town and I’m going to be giving away two…that’s right…TWO spots.  
First  – here’s a little info on the class:
 Stretch Your Stamps! This class shares techniques and tips for getting the most from many different stamp styles. Each day of class focuses on a certain type of stamp – background, collage, borders, etc – and shows 5 cards (and 2 videos) using them creatively. With 50+ card ideas and 20+ videos, you will be sure to look at your stamps in a whole new light.

In addition to the teachers Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire, there are lots of fabulous guests and special appearances from stamp designers themselves, including Tim Holtz, Ali Edwards, Kim Hughes and Claudine Hellmuth.

Class runs from July 9 – 23. Hope to see you there! Head HERE for more information.
So…last night as I sat up hanging out with Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose (yep – I love me some Golden Girls and I’m not afraid to say it!) I decided to create a few cards in the spirit of “stretching your stamps.”
Here’s what I came up with…and if you keep scrolling, I’ve got a little something extra to share:-)

If you’d like to be eligible to win one of two spots in the upcoming Stretch Your Stamps class – just leave a comment on this post. You’ll have until Sunday, June 24 at 11:59pm to leave your comment. I’ll announce the winners next week.
Thanks for stopping by!
