Build a Banner and Basic Stamping

Did you see the the alphabet and number solos 
are back for this month only?  



I love having these letters and numbers in my collection because they are so easy to pull out and use for titles, banners and home decor...especially when I don't want to fire up the Cricut!  This is a home decor piece I made when they were originally released and it still sits in my window.



This is also a great time to brush up on your stamping skills by joining my Build a Banner workshop.  We will go back to the basics for those who are new to stamping or who haven't stamped in a few years.



During this workshop I will cover:

  • the care and keeping of your stamps
  • basic stamping techniques such as loading your stamp with ink for a crisp image every time
  • two easy and fun techniques that can add more color to a single image
  • preventing unwanted "ghost" marks

Can't join me in the studio?  I will be opening a virtual classroom and all the lessons will be recorded on video so you can watch, learn, try it and repeat as often as needed!
