Mothers Classes--Easter Cards
Since the chocolate bunny stamp would not be available until the afternoon, the morning's Mothers Class made cards using another design. Nicole, an experienced stamper, is our only regular in the morning; so we decided back in Sept. to call it the Advanced Class. Her cards shown here, with room to stamp sayings on the front and inside later, show why!
Upon arrival of the Chocolate Bunny stamp in the afternoon, Linda, Jackie and Melisa got busy stamping right away. First they stamped the bunny on Soft Suede cs with Chestnut Roan ink and embossed them with clear ep. They were then anchored on some Easter grass for effect and embellished with bows, eyes and a bunny tail. The Boho Blossom punch made use of leftover scraps.
Earlier, Jackie made a "white chocolate" bunny at home and brought it in to show us.
Linda, who has more artistic talent of her own (without the use of stamps) made these last two cards at home. The red flowers are from a Gina K. set that we stamped last week, with an added butterfly. The sunflowers are hand drawn and are the focal point of her second card with the fancy checkered bow.
