Sneak Peek: Bring a guest to class bonus project!

Each month at my #monthlycraftclass - two days a month where I have four classes to choose from (click here for details), if you bring a new to me adult friend, you both get to make a bonus project!  Here is the project for this month:

I had to copy this idea that Dorothy made as a card swap and won the contest at my monthly demonstrator meeting!  It's a cool way to use the Beautiful You stamp set!

My card is a little different from Dorothy's, but you still get to do the technique.  You ink up only the top of the girl (any of them will work!) in Black Staz On Ink and stamp her on Watercolor Paper.  Use the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil to hand draw the skirt - make sure you draw scribble-y lines in the center, too.  Then, use the Aqua Painter (filled with water) to blend the skirt - and also paint some on her top.  When you blend the skirt, try to go lightly and let some of the scribble-y lines show.  Let dry and add some Clear Wink of Stella on top!

Stamp the hat image on the Pop of Pink designer paper, hand cut out, and attach on top of the stamped hat.  Tie a bow with the Gold Metallic 3/8" Ribbon (FREE with a $50 purchase!) and attach with a Glue Dot.

I would love to be YOUR Stamp Therapist!  Contact me to get your copies of the current catalog(s)!

Reminder: March Online Ordering Special: Place your online order of $25 or more in March 2017 WITH THE HOSTESS CODE RFM4BU22 (entered on shopping bag page, bottom left), and you will receive a FREE ONLINE CLASS packet to make SIX CARDS using the Cool Treats stamp set!!  This set is ADORABLE!  If you don’t have it, I recommend the bundle!  These images should be stamped first, then die cut, so you’ll need to die cut them out OR hand cut.  Your projects will use some of the super cute Tasty Treats Designer Paper, too.  
Other supplies you'll need: Ink Pads: Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder, VersaMark, Early Espresso, and Pear Pizzazz; Everything possible will be die cut, but I recommend the Frozen Treats Framelits because there are a couple of images you have to stamp first, then die-cut (but you can hand cut out); Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Tool; Clear Wink of Stella; Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also used one image from Timeless Textures as a background, but you can substitute any background/splatter image.
*Order $50 and ALSO get a free accessory from me!
*Exception: You qualify for both specials if you spend $150 or more online, but do NOT enter the hostess code because YOU will be a hostess and receive FREE merchandise from Stampin' Up!!

2017 New Customers Offer: Your first online order of $25 or more will receive a free Silicone Craft Sheet from me!  Use the monthly Host Code on the Shopping Bag page (bottom left hand side) when ordering to ALSO qualify for the Monthly Special.  Check out this video to see why I love the Silicone Craft Sheet!

2017 Big Shot Offer: Do you own the Big Shot?  It’s an AMAZING TOOL!  When you purchase the Big Shot from me, you will receive your choice of the Magnetic Platform or the Precision Base Plate FREE!!
