Actually, I could use some help!

Here's the scoop: I just became an instructor for card crafting at my local AC Moore.

Here's what I've come up with so far: for the first class, they'll do "Versatile Versamark" making 3 cards with Versamark ink techniques (shown here.) I plan to do a follow-up class using Versamark again for more advanced techniques.

Here's the problem: since I can only use what they sell in the store (no exceptions!) and students have to pay for materials, the cards have to be kept very simple. This store sells no Stickles, self-stick crystal embellishments or plain white cardstock in bulk (I buy mine at Walmart--obviously a no-no for the class.)

Here's the challenge: create a card appropriate for all levels using simple designs. Keep in mind that I need to keep supplies to a minimum so they can afford the class!

Here's how: post your card on your blog and send me the link in your comment below.

Here's the reward: I will choose a winner at random from all your comments to receive a $10 gift card from AC Moore! I'm going to have one of my Wednesday stamping buddies pick the winning number from all those who respond.

Here's the deadline: Midnight (Eastern time) July 1st

Thanks for your ideas!

This was really one of the easiest cards ever! No layers, no real embellishments.


The flower was stamped with VersaMark (another way to show that), then embossed with white and cut out. A simple ribbon just loops underneath. This was all done with the recent Sale-A-bration stamp from SU. Let me know if I can help any more...

I have never been into an AC Moore, we do not have them in southern California. Gosh, your idea is so nice for your class, perhaps you could get some versamark ideas from Beate! She has an answer for everything I swear! The previous comment sounds good! Sorry not to be much help! Good luck with your class! Deb

Doris, while browsing through some of my favorite blogs I ran back across this one I've recently added. The whole theme of her blog is simplicity...no time to stamp, but her cards are exquisite. You might want to take a look for inspiration.
