Hello on the first day of Autumn. It's early morning and a blustery, cool wind is blowing outside so it actually feels like fall in the desert Southwest. Yeah -- may summer go away! Last week I mentioned all the new merchandise that would be soon arriving at The Stamp Act. Well yesterday 5 boxes arrived! I didn't have time to unpack them, but will this morning so plan a trip to see all the new goodies!
Last week we received our first order of stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. These stamps are beautiful and meaningful and I couldn't wait to play with them. This Saturday morning's class (10am to noon) will be cards made with these stamps. Let me share them with you. The first card (left) uses a set called Grow with Grace which includes a very beautiful dogwood blossom as well as several verses or sentiments. This card could be done in other colors as well -- picture cool blues or soft lavenders!
For my second card I used the Keep My Light Burning set that includes a lighthouse with a space (upper left) that is just the right size to stamp the four quotes that come with the set. This card is all about the little touches that enhance the card and carry out the nautical theme.
My final card is soft and pretty and uses the Sing to the Lord set. I chose to use one of the quotations from the set which also includes a beautiful bird stamp. Again embellishments like flowers (Prima) and branches (Martha Stewart punch) on the card carry out the soft look.
If you want to learn how to make these cards, please join us Saturday morning at 10am. Give me a call by Friday morning to register for class. We would love to have you!
Thanks for reading my blog today. If you are not seeing the photos it's because I am writing this at home and will add photos once I get to the office this morning. Check back in a couple hours to see the photos. Happy Autumn!
