New Class! Copic/Mixed Media – July 30, 2019 – Queen’s Ink

Join me for a new Copic markers class featuring quirky, eclectic and always fun images from RubberMoon Stamps. In this class, you will make three cards with emphasis on basic Copic techniques. The coloring has been kept simple in order to spend more time creating mixed media backgrounds with stencils, washi tape, embellishment mousse, and more. Be prepared to get your fingers inky! All necessary techniques are taught in class. Seats are limited, so sign up today!

Meet the Oddballs by Stamping Bella

GOOD EVENING FRIENDS! I’m back today playing catch-up after the rush of the previews and release of the Enchanted Flower collection from Power Poppy. Hope you enjoyed all the cards that we put together for the preview and blog hop. I appreciate all the comments you left me. It means a lot when you take a few moments to leave a message.

So this is a big shift in gears – the past two months I’ve been teaching Copic classes at the Queen’s Ink featuring the Oddballs from Stamping Bella. I love the quirkiness of these stamps and they really take me out of the my floral comfort zone. So I just want to leave you today with some fun cards that we recently made in class at the Queen’s Ink.

A Change of Plans ….

DEAR FRIENDS – As some of you already know, we are rescheduling the June 12th Copic class. Please contact Photo Scraps if you have not already received a call from the store. The class has been rescheduled to Monday, June 17th with an additional date available on Wednesday, June 26th. Class details remain the same.

Instead on Wednesday, I’ll be attending the memorial service for one of my first Copic students. From the very beginning, Beverly Pugsley was one of my biggest cheerleaders. She encouraged me to teach, told her friends to sign up for my classes, and made a point of attending as many as she could. Every month on Demo Day, she brought me a lunch packed with protein, fresh fruit, and nuts. She wanted to make sure that I stayed healthy so that I could teach even more classes. And at the end of the day, we would sit and color, talking about whatever was going on in our lives. She loved to garden and would show me pictures of the flowers blooming in her yard. She knew that I took care of my elderly parents and she always asked about them, giving me insight on what it means to grow older. Her faith was strong, made even stronger by her final challenge. Her last message to me was: “Trusting in God for outcome. Love you very much.”

She’d be amused at a reference to Winnie the Pooh, but as a wise bear once said: “We didn’t realize we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.”

Ooops! Wrong Date!

Rowhouse Greetings | Oddball Standing Boy by Stamping Bella

It’s been brought to my attention (thanks Jill) that my teaching schedule has the wrong date for the Oddball class at Queen’s Ink. The correct date is TOMORROW, 5/28 (not Thursday). The class announcement both here and at The Queen’s Ink has the correct date. My teaching schedule has been corrected.

That’s what happens when I try to do things from memory!
