Relief From the Heat - Card Workshop

Ready to take a break from the heat and create some fun greeting cards?  Join us in my cool basement stamping room where you can create twelve unique, personalized cards for only $10.  

A very fun stamp set introduced in the Spring/Summer Idea Book is entitled Super Powers.  It includes a cartoon super hero figure and captions along with a skyline.  The skyline looks fabulous just stamped on a card.  It has such depth and nice detail.  For this card, I simply mounted the card on a piece of Cranberry card stock for contrast and added some ribbon.  It can be used as a birthday, thinking of you, safe travels, or any theme you would like.   The coordinating envelope is stamped the same as the card front. 
One of my favorite papers is this striped piece from the Florentine kit.  It makes a great background for the A Tree stamp.  This stamp set is only $6.95.  It includes the tree, sentiment, and a small butterfly.  For this card, a Flutter Paper Shape is used and some small self-adhesive pearls are added for the body.     

These truly fun little 3"x3" cards use the same Florentine paper - it is simply the backside of the stripe paper used for the A Tree card.  The adorable animals are from the Zoology stamp set.  Give one to someone special simply to brighten their day, or the small size is great to accompany a gift.  At the workshop, you will create four of these cards, your choice which animal you stamp!   
“Relief From the Heat” Card workshop will be offered this weekend - July 27 & 28.  The Friday evening class will start at 7 pm, and there will be two sessions on Saturday.  One starting at 9 in the morning and the second one at 1 in the afternoon.  You will create four of each of the three projects (total 12 cards and envelopes) for a workshop fee of $10.  Allow approximately two hours to complete your projects.  Please be sure to bring your favorite adhesive.  All other supplies are provided with the workshop fee.  All stamps and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

Everyone who attends will also receive a FREE copy of the Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter Idea Book & Catalog with new products available August 1.  There is a fabulous new Cricut cartridge available this year - it is named Artiste and includes 700 new images!  As an added bonus, if you place a $50+ order, your workshop fee is waived. 

Please let me know if you would like to attend.  Feel free to leave me a comment on this blog, send an email to, or call 913-485-4355.
