Mahalo From Don

After taking my Easel Card class, I think Don got inspired. He dropped off this card for me at the store and I was quite impressed! Thanks Don! If you would like to see this card up close, its currently on display at the store.

I love how he used the slippers as stoppers.. reminds me of how we use slippers for door stoppers?!

And love how he popped up the Mahalo laser cut to prop up the middle panel. Somehow this reminds me of a welcome mat and leaving your slippers at the door.

Thanks Don! This was a great sample to use in my 2nd class!

Holiday Hero Arts Stamps Are In!

Hello Everyone! Can you believe the week is half over? Just wanted to share what came in this week- the new Hero Arts Holiday stamps! Woo Hoo! We also got in some non-holiday images as well- see for yourself...

Oh- and don't forget the Halloween stamps!

See ya soon!

Feeling Blue?

Whenever I see a blue card at the store, I know who made it... That's right! Gotta be Don! Don recently took my Easel Card Class and later turned up with these two variations of the cards we made. Love how he used a smaller calendar on the Kiyomi Triple Easel Card to hold the easel up.

Here's a close up of Kiyomi... Yes, he cut out the kimono leaving only the stamped line and then put the washi paper behind it. Crazy yah?

Here's the Mei Li easel card done in blue. I like how he made his own washi looking paper using a sakura rubber stamp background.

Here's what the card looks like when its open.

Be back later to show you another variation of the triple easel card also made by Don!
