Triple Time Stamping

Standard

Hi everyone,

I have never done the triple time technique before, but I had been wanting to try it. The card turned out pretty well, except I don’t like how the words blended in too much with the green. I had already spent way too much time on this, so I decided to leave it and correct when I make another one. The technique was pretty simple, the sizes of the very vanilla are 4″ x 5.25″ , 3″ x 4.25″, and 2″ x 3.25″. The Primrose petal was cut a 1/4″ larger for each dimension. I used a very very small piece of painters tape to hold my layers together while I stamped.

Hope you enjoy.

January Technique Classes

Standard

Looking for a fun easy way to improve the looks of your paper creations. Starting this January, I will be offering a Technique class. I am offering a morning and evening class, so you can pick whichever one fits your schedule better. Both classes will focus on the same technique and both will be held in the classroom at the Seacoast Sewing Center on Rt 1 in Portsmouth, NH.

For January, we will be focusing on the technique of masking. Masking is a beautiful and easy way to paint a picture with your rubber stamps. Each class is only $12 and all supplies are included. You will make a page with a sample of the technique along with instructions and tips for repeating the technique. These are great for creating a beautiful scrapbook that holds all your techniques right at your fingertips. In addition we will make a card featuring that technique. Class dates are January 15, 11am – 12 pm and January 23, 5 pm to 6 am. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a sneak peek of what we will be making 🙂
