Lesson number 5 is perfect for my summer card. The example that was used in class was cupcakes and since I didn't have that stamp set I substituted that one I DID have. I have had this one for almost or over a year and hadn't touched it, like so many stamps that I have. I had fun creating this one although it took most of the morning do complete due to 3 kids. Have a cupcake of a day!

Yes, I am doing some skipping around on my homework. This is lesson #6 and is the shaker card for the class I am taking at Altenew Academy with Nichol Magouirk. Shaker items were really popular when I started scrapbooking a long time ago. I actually taught some classes on how to make shaker cards...LOL I think that is why this homework assignment was so easy for me. I used Close to My Heart stamps, because that is what I have the most of, combined with ink pads and water pen to color with. I used dollar store sequins for the inside of the shaker. I really like how this one turned out!

I am currently taking a stamping class at Altanew Academy to learn how to utilize my stamps in a better way. Lord knows I need it with all of them that I have! The teacher is Nichol Magouirk and she is wonderful. I am learning a lot of new things. I have finally used this stamp set, which I have had for at least 2 years. I am still not 100% happy with my alcohol markers but it is getting there and that's what it is all about!
