Fall Class Schedule - Sign Up Today

Cards by Pauline
We are thrilled to have Pauline teaching classes again after a 2 year break!  Check out these incredible cards featuring Penny Black stamps.  We are going to try something a little different here.  In this class you must bring a stamping tool (the Tonic Stamp platform, We R Memory Keepers Stamp Press, Misti Stamping Tool, etc) because Pauline will teach you how to apply ink in layers to achieve stunning results (card on left).  And because we will be working with our own tools, we will each need our own stamp.  In the class fee, you will walk away Penny Black's 'Becoming' cling mount stamp to use over and over again.  And for the card on the right, Pauline will show you how beautifully you can blend distress oxide inks to create seamless backgrounds.
This is the stamp you will take home
with your class fee

Date:  Thursday, October 11 from 6-8pm
Cost:  $40+hst - this includes class PLUS you will go home with Penny Black's 'Becoming' stamp of your own
Please bring:  A stamp positioning tool of your choice, scissors and adhesive
