WOW did not disappoint this month! I had to postpone this class in early March. Thankfully, we had a great turnout for class at the end of the month! WOW class is designed for the advanced stamper…this month was definitely a challenge for even the seasoned ladies! It’s fun to go outside the box and challenge ourselves and see what we can do with something as simple as stamps and paper!
Many of you ask if you can handle WOW class…I don’t always know how to answer, it can depend on the projects and how comfortable you are.
Sometimes wow is challenging…sometimes it’s simple, yet the end result can be simply “wow.” So, I would say…if you are comfortable using stamps, ink, adhesive, scissors, scoring tools, big shot and understand the basics of stamping. Wow might be for you. If you can “speak” the language….knowing how to score, stamp off, 2 step stamping, etc, wow might be for you.
I don’t recommend wow to the beginning stampers, it can be a bit overwhelming and I hate for anyone to leave frustrated. I have many classes suitable to beginners. Join me, get your footing, make some projects and perhaps join us for wow once you feel comfortable.
I “teach” at wow class….so you don’t have to know how to make the particular the project on your own….I am here to teach that to you during class! But having a grasp on the stamping basics is very helpful! Of course, attending with a knowledgeable stamping friend can be a big help too!
All of these projects came from other demos…we are blessed to have so many creative brains out there! I do have video tutorials ready to go for the next three movie mondays!
Here is what we created:
POP and TWIST card
this came from my team member, Muriel….and a couple ideas mashed together to make it easier!
mint macaron: 4 1/4 x 11 (cardbase), 10 x 3 1/2 (scored at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2), 8 x 3 1/2 (score short at 1 3/4) pencil marks on long sides at 2 1/4, 5 3/4- score diagonally to connect hash marks
night of navy: 4 x 5 1/4, 2 1/4 x 1
whisper white: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, 3/4 x 2
designer paper: 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 (x4), 4 x 5 1/4 (x2), 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (circle)
Well…technically not January, WOW class happened in February and…on Thursday. Thanks for going with the flow..my vacation and my son’s birthday affected my plans. Now, lacrosse is starting and it’s affecting my class schedule as well, so WOW in February, will really be in March (you all following?)
We had full classes and lots of fun! Here is what we created:
This amazing card is called Faux Quilt and was from Dawn Griffith…as soon as I get some more gold foil, I’ll do a video tutorial for ya. It looks harder than it is.
Found this from Julie Davidson and knew it had to be a wow….LOTS of die cutting but love the end result. The designer papers are 2 x 2 squares (cut 5) and the white is 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (cut 5). The Mint Macaron is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and the white mat is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. All items are layered on a 8×8 square of Night of Navy. I purchased the frame at Michaels. It’s a shadow box frame and came in a 3 pack for 29.99….and of course I used my 40% off coupon!
This idea came from pinterest and I was loving it. Lots of browns, lots of sponging and I used the watercolor pencils for her hat/dress. The distressing and sponging gives such a nice vintage feel.
A fun alternative to your Santa die! Found this cutie on Pinterest. Simply die cut Santa on the Pool Party cardstock and then cut his face right off. Fun!
This project was made at my upline’s meeting by my friend, Carol Barr. I believe it came form StampAmore? Many of you had commented on it and so we had to make it in class. It’s a gift card/treat holder. Mints, Kisses, even chapstick fit perfectly! Check out my tutorial: CLICK HERE
Thanks SO much for your patience! I’ll work on getting caught up before the end of the year, I promise!
