Join Lauren for a colorful three-card class featuring some of our favorite Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamp sets and background stamps. We’ll use a super-simple masking technique to create vibrant multi-patterned backgrounds, then add washi tape, typerwriter font sentiments and big, bold, beautiful blooms colored with their coordinating stencils and a gorgeous palette of Wendy’s Archival Inks from Ranger.
Cost is $24 payable by cash or check. Please email email@example.com to reserve your spot. Students are requested to bring their basic class kit and their favorite fussy-cutting scissors. Dates available: Friday, June 30th: 6pm – 9pm; Saturday, July 15th: 12pm – 3pm; or Monday, July 24th: 11am – 2pm.
Sharing a card from the anniversary party make and take that’s just perfect for the current challenge at Shopping our stash – something related to Thanksgiving, being grateful or a thank you somewhere on the project. The image and sentiment is from Taylored Expressions – colored in with Polychromos pencils. The gingham background stamp is from Studio 490, stamped with fern green archival ink. The letters are die cut using my old school Quick Kutz squeeze (I LOVE this tool) and stamped with a woodgrain background stamp from Stampers Anonymous.
Thanks for stopping by!
This month’s Make and Take features a gorgeous Penny Black image and Studio 490 sentiment. A simple card made by applying Tombow markers direct to the stamp. A spritz of water and voila, a beautiful, soft, watercolor floral. You can’t tell in the photo, but the flowers shimmer and sparkle with a light touch of stickles;
Still 11 days left before this month’s Christmas Card Club and I already have the card designed! This month I channeled all my favorite things – wood, plaid, gingham and a rustic cabin feel. I used Stampers Anonymous “Festive Overlays” set (another favorite thing) for the main image and sentiment. (die cut with Taylored Expressions awesome stitched and scallop sets). The plaid is a Studio 490 background stamp and the woodgrain is a Sizzix 3D embossing folder. My all time favorite May Arts ribbon, some die cuts from Penny Blackj and Elizabeth Crafts, along with a sprinkling of star sequins from Buttons Galore finish it off (not to mention a bunch of distress ink)!

Christmas in July is the new challenge at Shopping our Stash! Just perfect for me…I had to come up with a card quick for this month’s Christmas Card Club. I really wanted to play with the new Hero Arts set that came in from the ShopBox as I’ve been all about Scandinavian prints lately, and I really wanted to break out some embossing powders. I embraced my love of green and came up with this:
Background stamp is from Studio 490, inks are from Catherine Pooler and embossing powders are from Ranger. A touch of Antique linen and Tea dye to grunge it up and finish it off!

This week at Jingle Belles they’ve asked us to go vintage. (Yay!!!) I stamped the plaid flannel background stamp from Studio 490 with Peat Moss Archival Ink from Ranger. I sticky embossed the beautiful retro-font sentiment from Stampers Anonymous Christmas time set (CMS352) and added loose red glitter. (the sparkle in real life is to die for!) The Santa is from the Festive overlay set (CMS357), stamped with black archival and a little color added with Tombow markers. The scalloped and stitched dies are from Taylored Expressions. A super simple, quick card that lets that beautiful sentiment be the star of the show!
