Lovely as a Tree

Every Tuesday night (and one Tuesday morning per month), I hold a Stamp-a-Stack class. This is a class where you literally stamp a stack of cards in one night. It's a great way to build up some cards for sending or giving as a gift, and you always pick up techniques and tips along the way. At my Tuesday classes you get to make 8 cards, in 2 different designs for only $10. All you need to bring along is some Stampin' Up! Snail adhesive. I can order this in for you, if you don't have any, or you can use mine instead and pay $15.
Normally, the month's classes are filled well in advance, but I actually have 2 spots free for this Tuesday night (20th May). Email me if you'd like to come along.
This is what 2 of this month's cards look like:

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI've used the set 'Lovely as a Tree', which is a great set for making masculine cards, and cards for all occasions. I've endeavoured to make the stamped images look like artist's sketches, by inking them in shades of grey and then watercolouring with Watercolour Wonder Crayons.
The swirls in the background are the gorgeous Brocade Basics stamped in Versamark ink. The colours I've used are River Rock, Basic Grey, Going Gray, Basic Black and Whisper White. The photo corners (made using the Photo Corner punch) adds some balance to the simple design.
I'll show you the other 2 cards, and also the other Stamp-a-Stack design tomorrow. I also have another card by Amy coming soon...she wants to show everyone the Mother's Day cards she made!
