A card and some class samples

Hello everyone
It has been pretty quiet around here but that is because I have been busy prepping samples for a class I am running on Saturday afternoons at the moment. A group of total beginners (including two men yay!) Some of them had never seen rubber stamps before!
Anyway, here are just a few tiny samples of the kind of thing we have been doing and will be doing this coming week. The central stamp on the card is Edinburgh Castle, just for fun.

They have all been doing really well, I'm always amazed what beginners can come up with.....!

Wonderful work Astrid and I'm sure your students were also amazed at what you have shown them they can create. The card is gorgeous and I think I'm falling in love with that bauble die and stamp. Lucky students is all I can say.

Lovely project for your class Astrid - I'm sure they will love it. I did smile though when I read you had two men coming. It reminded me of when a friend did a class and two men turned up with their stamp albums thinking it was the stamp collecting group! Red faces all round LOL Hope your students are prepared to get inky!

I totally echo Alison's comment - beginners will do amazing things if they have an amazing teacher. LOVE the colouring to that first embossed card. It is an absolute gem of a card. Hugs, Jenny x

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
