April Stack A Stash, With Bonnie





 These are the two cards for April’s Stack A Stash.  You will be making two of each.
The Christmas card is simple and elegant with a touch of whimsy.  We will be using the swirl embossing folder from Provo Craft, a little bit of distress ink and a cute snowman stamp colored with Tombow markers.
You asked for a masculine card and here it is. Creative Imaginations map paper, a Prima Stamp, a little bit of cutting, and voila!  A card any male in your life would love to receive.  Remember, the sentiments can be changed up to suite any occasion.

Date:  Sunday, April 29, 2012
Time:  1:00 pm to 3:00 pm   (Only a couple of spaces left)
Cost:  $18.00 class
           $16.00 kit only

Supply List:
Basic tool kit including pop and glue dots
Wet adhesive such as Tombow Mono or Glossy Accents
Non stick craft mat (if you have)
Ink blending tool with foam (if you have)
Tim Holtz Distress Inks:  Weathered Wood
Markers of your choice for coloring snowman
I used Tombows:  850, N60, 528, 620, 603, 985 if you want the same colors but you can use what ever colors you wish.

What is Stack A Stash? Are you one of those people who, come November, are completely stressed out because Christmas is coming and you haven't even contemplated starting your Christmas cards? How about those last minute Birthday cards, do you have spares on hand?

Once a month we will be offering Stack A Stash, each month hosted by a different instructor. In these classes we will be making easy cards that can be adapted to any paper or sentiments.
These classes will be shorter, so that busy people will have a better chance of fitting them into their schedules. The class will always be the last Sunday of each month, so you can know well ahead of time when the classes will be offered. We will always do one Christmas card, and one all occasion card, but will do TWO of each design for a total of 4 cards per class.
Can't make the class? Chances are the instructor will offer kits. Make sure to check the class details if you are interested.
