So I got my own stamp and decided to do a class with it. It is from Penny Black and called Coop Party. It is really fun to color and make up the card. Especially when you have some really fun colorful papers to go with it.
The second card is from a new company called Waffle Flower. I had never heard of them until I was watching a tutorial with a watercoloring technique. Then a few days later I went into Main St and saw these cute little monkeys from them. They were really fun to color also. I wish I had some banana papers I could have used with them but the papers I have are discontinued so I went with these fun papers. The stamps came with matching dies which makes them even more fun and the set comes with three monkeys and lots of fun stuff to go with them. Like the banana, bow and little hat I have used here. The sentiment also comes with the set. Lots of fun stamps and dies in each set.

I have done a different coloring technique on each of the flowers. Three of the cards are shown here.
So we will be doing these techniques in a class and a couple of the 5 cards but not all of them!

Main St Stamp and Stationary later this month!
These cards were made using dies from the Sizzix diorama die set.
It has some fun panels to use on card. Also the fuchsia card is using a panel from it also. So I made three different cards that are totally different types of cards all from this one set! That doesn't happen very often (to me anyhow!!). LOL.
The fuchsia card was a little hard to color at first but then I changed my color combo and it got easier.
The flowers on the gate card are also from Sizzix and are a Brenda Walton design. They are a little difficult because they are a sizzlet die. I am not a big fan of those but didn't realize what it was until I got it home!!
The pretty fuchsia stamp is from Heartfelt Creations!

They are really fun to work with.
The card was made with a sizzix diorama set. This set had a lot more than I bargained for it. I was surprised and pleased with everything it has.
You don't have to have a diorama die to make a diorama card. But with all of the other dies that came with it it was really worth the cost.
My Floral Frenzy class coming up was made using this set also. So so far, I have made three cards with this one die set. That doesn't happen very often!!
I have also used a couple of Elizabeth Craft Design dies for the trees, grass and hill in the background.
For the little flowers on the trees I used a Martha Stewart geranium punch. It has three little flowers on it!
