Rescheduling Sailboat Die Class


I have been busy of late and I have come down with the flu just before I leave on the 24th to visit my daughter, grandchildren and my sister! Can you believe that? I am doing everything I can to fight this so I can go!

We have decided to reschedule this class class for you. It is a class using a scene die cut called 'Sailboat Frame' by Impression Obsession. Sometimes a person can run out of or not even think of what can all be done with this type of die. So in this class we will be learning a few different techniques that help to step up the look of the obvious basic use for this die and other like it.


WHEN: Monday, January 14th
TIME: 6:00pm - 8:30pm (If you would be interested in a daytime class, please let us know)
COST: $25 + tax

RSVP: 778-533-4290 OR

These lovely sailboat cards are so Victoria, and can be made very masculine and even feminine. Working with a large die cut or scene die can sometimes stump your ideas beyond the obvious. In this class we will experiment with some techniques that can be applied to these kinds of dies. We will use paint brushes and washi tape to paint ink onto the die cut to add details, and we will create an ink blended scene background to create a faux stained glass look. We will also discuss layering intricate die cuts, and share other ideas that can be done using the Impression Obsession Sailboat Frame die. These techniques can be used on other die cuts too.

PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: scissors, pencil & white eraser, old washi tape which might not be your favourite, Glossy Accents, a pin or safety pin, a couple of toothpicks, paper towel, wipes for your hands and work surface, double-sided adhesive tape (could also use a very narrow at 1/8" or use liquid glue), liquid glue, white pop-ups, non-stick craft mat, 1/4" flat brushes (2 to 4), ink blending tools & extra sponges, heat tool, and as many of the following ink pads as you have -

  • Oxide Inks - Tumbled Glass OR Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Stormy Sky, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint OR Crushed Olive, Squeezed Lemonade OR Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick (you can used regular Distress ink pads in these colours, just remember that it will look different than the samples) we will have ink here to borrow if need be....but you will still need your own blending sponges.
