Heat&Stick Pearls

I am having the most fun getting ready for my Pretties Kit class tonight.

I’ll post more photos in the next few days. I just couldn’t wait to tell you of my escapades. If you haven’t tried this get out your heat & stick powder out and have at it.

I read about coloring the half pearls with a marker and then dipping it in clear embossing power. I did it and it was OK but had a mottled look to the pearl. Even after I did several reapplications on the same pearl.

Then I got out my versamark pad, heat and stick powder and proceeded to emboss these little puppies with everything in my stash including Dazzling Diamonds that I had dyed with reinkers, Silver glitter, gold glitter, regular dazzling diamonds, red glitter, silver EP (make it look like a black pearl)…etc etc, it was so much fun.

You get the picture, my stamp table is covered with remains of EP and even the cat has glitter on her but I’m one happy stamper.

I can hardly wait for my class.

Stampers Ten Club Projects 9 & 11 Oct. Each month I have a free class for my Stampers’ Club members. I usually do a technique demonstration and then they stamp two make and take projects. This was one of the cards we made at the 9 & 11 Oct meeting.

There are so many facets to rubber stamping that I love. The first is all the fun times I get to have with my stampin’ buddies. Here is a card that we did as part of my: What in the world is Crystal Effects class. Everyone got their own bottle of crystal effects and I showed them all the wonderful ways to get messy with the stuff. We had a great time and everyone went home with unique creations.  Click on the photo below to see the detailed instructions.

.Serene Sunflower Card Portfolio

This is from a class I held using the Serene Sunflower stamp set. Each person bought the stamp set to be eligible to attend the class. I cut out the stamps and mounted them for everyone ahead of time. Worked out great. You can’t tell in the photos but the center of many of the flowers are micro beads. Most of it was CASED from SUDSOL and on SCS. Sorry I don’t have the names of the people I CASEd them from. I’m making an effort to keep track on all future projects. Thanks to Paula, one of my downline, for finding this great project.

Pebble Creek Stampers hard at work on their Birthday Calendars

In this photo my students were working on their Prepetual birthday calendars. I’ve since moved into an even better space that is supplied by the Arts & Crafts Committee in the development where I live.

The following are photos of some my perpetual birthday calendar they used as a sample.
