You don't have to have taken last month's class in order to do this scene or have the stamps so come join the fun. The supplies you will need are; color box stylus and foam tips, you should might want to have a tip for each color family so you don't have to clean them out each time.Example; one for greens ,blues,browns, etc. Caulk applicators or cosmetic foam applicators,Dye inks, any brand as long as they're dye based. Example; Adirondack, distressed, stampin up, Marvy. I used Adirondack; cloudy blue, sailboat blue, denim, latte, pesto, lettuce, meadow, pool stream and aqua. Marvy salvia blue.

May coloring Class

Sorry I'm getting a late start this month. The stamp I was originally going to do didn't come in on time so i had to redirect. How about a father's Day card or a card for a son or special friend. We haven't done any masculine cards in class so I thought this might be a fun one. It could even be a get well card. Items you will need for class are; word or phrase stamp, brown ink pad, Stampin up ticket punch, pop dots, score tape 1/8", scissors, paper trimmer and your regular supplies.

Prisma colored pencil colors: PC1091 Green Ochre, PC948 Sepia, PC1005 Limepeel. PC949 Metallic Silver, PC935 Black, PC1032 Pumpkin Orange, PC917 Sunburst Yellow, PC927 Light Peach, PC939 Peach, PC1033 Mineral Orange, PC928 Blush Pink, PC945 Sienna Brown, PC944 Terra Cotta,PC902 Ultramarine, PC906 Copenhagen Blue, PC1079 Blue Violet Lake, PC942 Yellow Ochre.

June Card club

Are you ready to stamp??!! Are you ready to mask??!! Are you ready to sponge??!! I hope so, because that's what we're going to do this month! This is the first card in a series on Masking Techniques. This is a more "masculine" card, which you all know is a stretch for me, due to my affinity for ribbon and butterflies. So, I was very happy that neither found their way onto the card!'s the supplies to bring (if you have them) besides your basic kit:

Treeline silhouette stamp

Phrase stamp

Pale yellow dye ink

Pale pink dye ink

Pale blue dye ink (Memento Summer Sky)

Deep blue dye ink (Distress Broken China)

Black dye ink

Pale green dye ink (Stampin' Up Certainly Celery)

May Clean and Simple Card Class

Hello again! Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful spring weather! It's the season to be working out in the yard, and we've been doing some landscaping! That's why I'm trying to get this posted for you, because I want to do some work outside before it gets too hot! Then....after I get that done, I can relax, and go play with my paper some more! See-I reward myself with paper. I highly recommend it! All work and no play makes Kim a dull girl-we couldn't have that now, could we?

Anyway, on to the good stuff! Here's the pictures of the cards we're doing this month. This is called paper piecing, and I'm using this as a segueway to the series on Masking Techniques.

Here are the supplies to bring to class (if you have them) besides your basic crafting kit:

Die cut machine

Embossing folder of choice

Furniture stamp set (this was "Wish you were here" from Hero Arts)

Black journaling pen

Corner rounder


Gold embossing powder

Heat gun

Silver or gold metallic pen

Class is scheduled on Friday morning May 27th from 10 to noon. If you have any questions or need to reserve your stamping spot, please call All About Pictures at 364-4141. If I don't see you then, I hope you have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! ~Kim~
