Although i have not posted in awhile, that does not mean that I haven't been creating. these are the cards that my daughter and I made when we visited Archivers(archiversonline.com/)during one of their free make it sessions back in the summer. Learned many different techniques: The THANKS card has a punch and heat embossed image. They do provide all the materials for you to make these cards.
Corner chompers used on the white part of this card, then embossed with a folder. Stamped the thank you and lamp and stamped the lampshade again, then cut it out, heat embossed in pink and attached it with a foam dot.
Used several stamps with a resist technique. Stickles and an ink pad gives it an antique look.
All three cards shown. I found that these classes are a way for you to try different products before you buy.
