Hello and thanks for stopping by. This coming weekend is February 6 and that's a very special day at The Stamp Act because it is Chloe's (our shop dog) ninth birthday! In her honor I would like to offer everyone shopping at the store this Saturday a special 9% discount on all purchases of regularly priced merchandise. I hope you will stop in and give Chloe some birthday greetings and enjoy the savings on your purchases!
In case you have tome for a class, I will be teaching two very fun classes. In the morning from 10am to noon, we will be making a set of 6 All Occasion cards using one set of clear stamps from Hampton Arts and Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper. Here's a preview of the cards:
My afternoon class is All About Inchies. These two cards are inspired by ones on the Inchie Arts blog. They both use the "Patio Petunias" stamp from Lockhart Rubber Stamp Company. The card on the left is called an Inchie Explosion card and the card on the left is called an Inchie Puzzle. Isn't it cool how one stamp can look so different in these two treatments? I hope you will come and find out how to create these cards yourself.
This card is the result of creating a MasterBoard then coloring it and punching out Inchies. This is a really creative and fun technique. This little book accordion book really shows off Inchies in a stylish way. The stamps are all from Lockhart. Please give me a call and sign up for a class this Saturday. Or just stop in and save 9% of on all purchases of regular merchandise. I hope to see you then!
