MISTI / Altenew Pretty Pansy Class



Hello Everyone!

I arrived back home yesterday and have been checking up on the upcoming class. I discovered that I forgot to post a class before I left! In some ways it turned out to be a good thing because I do not have anything new yet to post for you. So today I will be sharing with you the layered stamping class for May 23rd!


MISTI & Altenew Pretty Pansies Class
WHEN: Wednesday, May 23rd
TIME: 6:00 - 8:30 (may go over a bit)
COST: $42 + GST (includes the $28.95 stamp set)

Welcome to another MISTI Layered Stamping Class! For this class we will be using the Altenew Pretty Pansies stamp set. This set has up to 3 to 5 layers to create a variety of different types of Pansies.
We will be learning a different layering system in this class that involves gold heat embossing for one card, and for the other we will take the flower and make it more masculine just by the colour choices. You will have the choice of fussy cutting, using your dies that go with the set if you purchased them, or using the die set I will have there with my die machine.
If you would like to order the matching die set to have during class they are $16.95 and you just need to let Stacey know so she can order it in for you.
PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Your completed cards, or photos of completed cards, from the last Tulip class in March (prizes from Sabrina), your MISTI or Stamping Platform, your Lawn Fawn Stamp Shammy or a micro cloth with stamp cleaner or water, baby wipes for your hands etc, mini-glue dots, white foam pop ups, full adhesive post it notes, Versamark (embossing ink) pad make sure it is juicy and not getting dry (you may always purchase a refill from Stacey), gold embossing powder, scissors, your die cutting machine and plates if you will use your coordinating dies, and your ink pads.
INK PAD COLOURS: for each of the pansies, you will need up to 4 colours. You can get by with 3 colours just by how you stamp each layer. Test the colours at home to see if the colours you choose will work well together and if they need re-inking. If you want to go with my choice of colours you will need 3 - 4 yellows, 3 - 4 pinks, 3 - 4 turquoise, 3 - 4 blues, 2 greens, 2 kraft/beige colours. (Other pansy colours are purples, orange, red/burgandy, etc) Bring only water die based ink pads (no archival, chalk, or pigment ink pads please). Recommended ink pads that you may have at home are from Memento, Altenew, or even Stampin' UP. If you wish to purchase more colours to have for class, please contact Stacey as well.

This first card will take some time because of the multiple colours and flowers. This will be a new technique for you to learn as we will be heat embossing and layer stamping!

For the second card of this class, I wanted to see if I could use cute little pansies and make if a little more masculine. This card involves some masking.

I am wishing that I had not let so much of the leaves peek out from under the pansies, but I do like the colour combination. Hope you do too. If not you can always choose different coloured stamp pads to bring to class.
Pansies are one of my favourite flowers and I am really looking forward to this class with you.
Happy stamping, and see you soon!
