Stamping Master Class - our first graduate!

We had our first graduate at the Stamping Master Class this week! Barbara has attended 10 classes and turned in all her homework - yay Barbara! We have 2 more people walking tonight... and all three are signing up for another season - too much fun!

Here is one of this month's projects, I cased the idea from Patty Bennet.  Love these beautiful flowers. This series of classes was created specifically for my stampers who have mastered most basic techniques and are ready for a challenge! We do projects that are slow and "steppy" and would be too  frustrating for many people. The girls attending this class embrace these fussier style cards. Truthfully, that would not be me! I like cards that LOOK like they took ages but were actually quick and easy. So, this has been a great experience for me, pushing me out of my comfort zone and challenging me, love that. 

To get credit for their class they need to turn in homework each month! They use one of the techniques we learned that month to create something of their own. They then bring it to the next class or post it to the Stamps and Tea facebook page .

In October we had learned about Soot Stamping and Barbara decided to make something using that technique. Her husband apparently loves rhino's so she used a (non SU) rhino stamp to make him this card, isn't it just fantastic?! I'm thinking I should maybe come up with a way to penalize those stampers who make something better than my template, what do you think?!

Interested in this class? You'd be more than welcome to give it a try! Just let me know if you'd like more information.

Have a great week! Brenda
