Good morning my friends!
I’ve been making cards for several years and I love to give them out to people. Some have said they wish hey could make cards, but find it too difficult. So I decided to give card classes for them using a variety of stamps.
I started in the summer and I find that not only are we making cards, but we’re also getting to know each other better and enjoying a creative form of entertainment.
For this week’s lesson, I set up all the materials for them and will show them how to put them together.
I had so much fun making this one – lots of layers and dimension, but it will take some time to put it together.
I used the Now And Always stamp kit (an oldie) from Unity Stamps. I love this kit because it has flowers that can be stamped on different colors of cardstock, and be cut apart to stack them and give them dimension.
I saw this type of card online and since I don’t have a beautiful butterly die like the one they used, I chose an older dragonfly from Spellbinders.
And, used this kit with that has many different sentiments and fonts!
Finally, this is my favorite.
I used Poppy Pattern Penny Black background stamp for this one, and the sentiment from this kit:
One of the friends that comes to take classes prefers 6×6 cards and I usually make 5 1/2 by 4 1/4, and so I’ve been trying to accomodate her, but the background stamps are usually 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. I guess I’ll have to use single stamps to make the background, but it will be more time consuming.
So, if you’re in the area and want to learn how to make stamps in two hours, leave me a message on my Facebook page.
Have a wonderful day!

Those cards look great. I’m sure your friends will have a blast making them and the eventual recipients will love receiving hand crafted cards.
thanks, Laura! We’re getting together this afternoon and I’ll be sure to take some pictures!
