About this class
It’s the HO-Ho-Holiday season, and there has never been a better time to let those hand-stamped gift tags shine! Tis the season for the newest, most festive, good-tiding-bringing session of Stamp Therapy! Bring all your favorite holiday stamp sets, Distress Oxide inks in the colors that say “Christmas Joy” for you… and join me for 5 JOLLY-filled, merry-licious lessons full of stamping magic: Stamp Therapy Session Three: “Hometown Holiday”
We will be channeling all those North Pole vibes as we work on learning fresh ways to create holiday-inspired stamped art. Whether you are creating holiday greeting cards, garlands, or gift tags for every box under the tree… the ideas, techniques, and tips from each lesson will help you feel more confident and JOYFUL in the creative process. We all know that the hand-stamped-with-love tag is the true gift (wink)! In this session of Stamp Therapy, I will be primarily using NEW 2022 Christmas stamp sets AND I’m sure to dip into other sets in my collection as well!
Note: I do recommend that you have the BASIC knowledge and information about inks, inking your stamps, cleaning stamps, pressure, positioning, echo stamping, layering, etc. that are included in STAMP THERAPY Session 1, as I will be building on that information in this class.
ALSO: The concepts I share in this class can apply to ANY stamp set, so even if you don’t have the specific sets I am using to illustrate the examples, you can draw from your personal collection and achieve the same effect! With the exception of Black Archival Ink, I use only Distress Oxide Ink in these lessons. I love the bold colors and the ability to stack, mix and combine the colors. You don’t have to use the exact same colors I use. USE what you have access to! Use lighter colors when I use lighter colors, and darker colors when I use darker colors.
All class lessons will be available on Friday November 25th at 8 am ET
See you then!!
