Technique Card Class

Hi Crafters

Finally the technique class you all have been waiting for. Saturday the 11th you will be learning 5 different techniques and making 7 cards. There is still room in this class let me know if you would like to join in on the fun.

Below are photos of the techniques you will be learning and some of the cards you will be making.

Faux Leather

This is a really cool technique and easy. It is done with masking tape, ink and clear embossing powder. Very simple and the photo doesn't do it justice.

Baby wipe

Another simple technique using a wipe, re-inkers and a silloutte stamp. Very messy and easy :0)

Wrinkle free distress

I made four tags from the ink I placed on the wax paper. It's amazing how the tags turned out so differently using the same 3 colors of ink. This is a really messy technique and very fun.

We will be making two tags and cards in class.

Burned Batik

Very cool technique that took some time to achieve. I did two different sheets of paper and the pairs turned out so different. In the above photo the top two I used a thinner stamp and only two colors of re-inkers and the bottom two I used a thicker stamp with three colors of re-inkers. We will be making two cards from one sheet of paper.

3 colors, wide stamps

2 colors, thin stamp


I really like this simple technique that spotlights an area on the card. Very simple to do yet it gives a really cool effect.

Great news I will be teaching card/craft classes starting in September at the Mesa Art Center. One workshop a month on different topics on a Saturday from 9 until noon and one class on a Thursday night. The brochure with all the workshops will be out in August.
I've had so many request for the CD album and paper bags class I will be teaching these classes along with a box workshop, technique class and holiday cards.
Have a fun and safe holiday...
