These cards were made by Claire Bishop using one sheet of patterned 12″ x 12″ card stock to decorate 15 cards. A copy of the cutting guide is available at Claire’s Collectibles.
These cards were created by Elaine Daniels using the poppy set of stamps from My Favorite Things. You can do a lot with one set, obviously!
I started stamping in the late 70′s proving a child could do it…just kidding. Oil painting was my love but in the 90′s when I started working and had limited time to paint, stamping was my creative outlet. I would make a card before going to work and more after work. It is a great stress reliever.
These cards look like my “Blue Period”… mainly because I like blue! I used a Penny Black face and punched butterflies, stenciled butterflies with distress inks. Stamping and Cuddlebug folders make quick cards. The Daisies and Vase are Print Works Collection and Poppies are MFT stamps. I appreciate Claire being in business all these years. It is great to have a stamp store in St. Augustine!
These cards were done by Lisa Harrison for upcoming workshops on a Saturday to be determined. There will be two on the same day with different techniques and products. Each workshop is $25.00 which includes all supplies. Just a reminder – you receive a free stamp and 10% discount on purchases in all classes. If you are interested call Claire’s at 904-825-1122
The Glitzy Glamor workshop will feature glitters from Elizabeth Crafts, die cuts, stickers and Copic markers. Click to enlarge images.
These cards were made by Claire in workshops taught by the manufacturers. There are more samples in the store. And, yes, the stamps, die cuts, cardstock and glitter are on order. Enjoy!
I was in between life adventures in the year 2000, needed something creative to occupy my time, and happened into a stamp store in Springfield, Oregon, near where I was living then. The owners were offering classes and even though it was hard for me to imagine that I could possibly produce beautiful cards like the ones on display, I jumped right in and began learning.
Whenever one of my friends expresses an interest in taking up card making but says they doubt they have any talent for it, I tell her or him that I initially felt the same way. But once I started practicing basic techniques and experimenting on my own it was only a matter of time until I developed my own “style” and became more self-confident.
If I don’t absolutely adore a card that I’ve made for someone I won’t send it; in fact I ask people to send the card back if they get tired of it – no hard feelings – and I’ll put it in my “favorite card” scrapbook!
I took technical illustrating in college and headed up the art department in a printing company for 20 years.
Moved to Florida 10 years ago and took some stamping classes to meet friends. Worked for 4 years in a scrapbook store and taught card making and scrapbooking classes.
Now I have a craft room set up for stamping. I love “playing” with friends, learning new techniques and collecting lots of stamps and supplies. It’s a wonderful way to relax and create.
Stamped image, colored with copics. Matted, raised with foam tape. Background – matted floral print. Cut extra flowers and layered over image corners. Added embellishments to lower left and upper right image.
Stamped image, colored with copic markers. Matted, added lace and embellishments.
Printed verse, layered with spellbinders, die cut flower, stamped image, copic markers. (Web person note: It is hard to display just how pretty this card is. The verse is a “pop up” so the card has a 3-D effect.)
This is my second appearance on Claire’s website and I thank her very much.
I’ve been stamping approximately nine years and am always learning something new and meeting lots of new friends.
