Lots of bling here at this class today.  I've still got a couple of open spots if you haven't had a chance to sign up.  Bling Girls, this is for you!  We are using all forms of "bling", Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Glimmer Brads, Smooch Accent, and Rhinestone Jewels.  Lots of fun and only $15.00 for 5 cards with envelopes, about 2 hours of time with me, and coffee and biscotti.  What a value!

Here's what one stamper had to say about this class from yesterday's session….

Hi Sarah:

Just wanted to say "thanks" for the wonderful morning.  All the cards that I have made recently are top notch.  You are really a talented SU demonstrator.  I always look forward to my next time stamping.

Here's one of the cards we are stamping today.

Crazy for cupcakes

TIDBITS & Triffles – just a few notes

  • We used the Illuninate Top Coat on the Cupcake Liners and accented with the Moonlight Accent on the frosting to give the “shimmer”.  The Illuminate is like liquid Dazzling Diamonds and the Moonlight is more of an opaque glimmer.
  • I’ve used Melon Mambo, Soft Suede and Creamy Caramel CS for this card.

This has been the other BIG project we are working on here at the Stampin' Cottage.  We've had a hotel style airconditioner/heater thingy and unfortunately it's a small fortune to heat with….like a couple of hundred bucks a month in the winter and that's only when I'm in the studio!  So, I've saved for a pellet stove and we should be nice and toasty this winter!  My dear husband has been working on it, even though it's hunting season and to him, this is THE most important couple of weeks of the year.  He promises that it will be up and running before opening day on Saturday!  Maybe in time for Friday's class?  Oh we can hope.  I'll need to spend Saturday working on rearranging and organizing then as I had to move my stamps that were on the shelves, directly above the stove…..

All for today, happy stamping and I'll be here at class.  🙂
