Join Elisabeth for this new three-card class featuring peek-a-boo card fronts. We’ll play with stencils, piercing dies and embossing folders to create our card fronts, and we’ll adorn our cards with Altenew stamps and dies, as well as Spellbinders and Honey Bee dies. A cute and quirky sentiment set from Avery Elle will finish everything off!
Join Elisabeth for this three card set featuring all Altenew – stamps, stencils, embossing folders and dies, oh my! Learn a new way to paint your flowers, pair an embossing folder with stencils for a stunning (and easy) card, and finally use a Misti to overstamp a pigment ink masterpiece! (Who doesn’t love the look of white ink of kraft cardstock?!)

If you missed Lauren’s Frost Flowers Class, or if you live slightly further away from Paper Anthology, you might be interested in this brand new Frost Flowers Card Kit! It features the Altenew Paint-a-Flower: Sweet Pea Stamp Set used in the class, as well as complete step-by-step instructions for completing all three cards, and all of the diecut foliage and sentiments, pre-cut patterned paper and stenciled panels, ribbon and A-2 cardbases. All you need to complete the cards are inks, adhesives and coloring implements. Then, afterwards, you can make additional cards of your own design featuring the beautiful Sweet Pea stamps and all of the sentiments in the stamp set. The cost is $40. Click THIS LINK to visit the product page, add the kit to your cart, then check out as normal. Locals, remember there’s a “Pick Up in Store” option that lets you avoid paying for shipping.
It’ll be a few months before there are flowers in our gardens, so in the meantime, join Lauren for this “One Stamp Set, Three Ways” class. We’ll combine the beautiful blooms of Altenew’s Paint-a-Flower Sweet Pea stamp set with Spellbinders’ Simply Perfect Mix and Match Sentiments dies and assorted Penny Black foliage. We’ll do some traditional coloring, some selective coloring and a bit of paper-piecing; not to mention pressure embossing (with metallic rub-on accents), a smidge of stenciling and fair amount of (easy!) fussy-cutting. Please bring your basic kit with all the usual adhesives, and your favorite pair of scissors.
Dates available: MLK Monday, 1/16/23 from 11am to 2pm; Friday, 1/27/23 from 6-9pm and Saturday, 2/11/23 from 12-3pm. Cost is $24. Please email email@example.com to reserve your place!
The first day of exciting inspiration at the Collins Show was packed full of new products, ideas and techniques. Here are a few highlights: In Altenew’s class (photo above) we used their Golden Days stamp set for all three cards; and also, on the lefthand card, a wonderful debossing cover die called Dotted Tile. Dare 2B Artzy’s class (photo below) featured their new Space Odyssey and Make Waves collections, with coordinating papers, stamps and dies.
The winter 2022 edition of the Collins Group Virtual Retailers Symposium begins today, so stay tuned all week for the latest makes and previews of items coming soon(ish) to Paper Anthology. First up, cards from the famous Sample Making Frenzy! In photo one, gorgeous florals from AlteNew. In photo two, an ocean vibe from Dare 2B Artzy, lovely lemons (on a textured background) from Spellbinders, and silhouetted drama from Hero Arts. Photo three features soft florals from Stampendous, as well as uber-cuteness and big chunky diecuts from Lawn Fawn.
More marvelous makes from Sunday’s classes at the Collins Virtual Retailer Symposium. Above: Altenew’s Watercolor Extravaganza Stamps and Delightful Frame 3D Embossing Folder. (By the way, we just got another shipment of the amazing Altenew E/F’s in, including this one!) Below: Dare 2B Artzy always does a great job coordinating stamps, dies and papers; and coming up with new styles of card… how cool is that double pop up?!
It might seem odd that Altenew’s new line of embossing folders all have“3D” in their name; afterall, every embossing folder creates a 3D effect, that’s nothing new, right? Except… these are DIFFERENT! They’re much more deeply embossed than traditional folders. So much so, that still photos don’t really convey their intricacies. You should probably watch the video!
