Stampin' Up! Packed For Birthday &
Stampin' Write Markers
On Monday I held my first in a series of six Card Club sessions. Four of my ladies are from my Library workshop, one is from my Espresso Cielo workshop and one is my dear friend Jill. Because this was our first session, I wanted something that packed some punch but was relatively easy to do. What could be easier than coloring? After all most of us did it as kids. I gave them the option to create cards focusing on our Color Collections.
I also introduced a very basic use for the Stamp-a-ma-jig and the and art (and technical aspects of) scoring card stock. Each of the card club meetings will begin with a Stampin' 101 Training session. Next month will be the different types of ink and their uses. I feel it's important to learn some of the basics in order to be able to create on your own.
If anyone out there is in the Coachella Valley and is interested in starting a card club with thier friends, contact me and we'll put one together. It's a great way to laugh, learn, and create!

Putting It Together Tips:
- I believe that beginner stampers are best to purchase wood mount stamps. I think they are easier to handle and they work consistently well with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. If you take the time to align the rubber on the wood block when you first mount your stamp, you can cut a piece of card stock the size of the block and use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to perfectly center the image.
- When you're first starting out, the assortment of supplies can be overwhelming. So my advice is a pack of Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock and stick to a Color Collection Assortment of card stock and Stampin' Write Markers. Although the In Colors Collections are the hot colors of the day, our other collections offer a broader color palette. Decides what's important to you. Purchase a StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad and you have the basics for creating a wide variety of cards. If you feel the need to purcahse a few ink pads, stay in the same Color Collection. Your cards will always look professional because they'll perfectly match.
- Ribbon is a hard thing to buy because not every color goes with every color - except for white and black. Our Whisper White Organza is a great purchase because it goes with everything. Then you can gradually add your favorite colors again staying in the Color Collection of your choice.
