Students and a Card

A couple Wednesdays ago I taught a class at Green Valley Recreation and had 2 students.  Neither had ever stamped and one probably never will.  They made little drawers with an easel on the top.  You can click Here, Here, and Here to see post showing what we made.

Sue, from Canada, had a blast and has signed up for all 3 of my classes.  Her project is for a granddaughter.

Janice, a quilter, had fun but this just wasn't her cup of tea.  She did seem to have fun making the little cards from the scraps and I die cut some cowboy boots to go with her southwest theme.

I started on my cards using the FSJ Kit of the Month.  I got all 4 done but screwed up one.  Each one is a bit different then the actual directions as I didn't have all the ink colors or stamps used.  I received all the paper needed, precut, embellishments, and a cool stamp set called Star Bright.  This set of 4 stars and 3 phrases will be available in about 3 months.

The company used a stamp called Ink Splat in this yellow area.  I just used the corner of an ink pad and made the background.  I also do not have the Silver Silk so I used my Silver Wink of Stella brush.  Turned out pretty good to my way of thinking.

And today is Wednesday but I'm not taking part of the What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday since I'm on a mini vaca with hubby.  He's actually working and I'm along for the ride. But please check out the Stamping Ground for those taking part today.

My hubby got me this little guy back in 2004 as our internet was horrible.  Couldn't connect or stay connected.  Just frustrating waiting for something to work.  Unfortunately the chair back is long gone.  The only change should be that the computer should say "Pinterest Too Long."  What a hoot!
