January Class - highlighting Stampendous

Earlier in the week I blogged about the changes coming to my card class at Scrapbook Barn with the New Year.  As promised I'm revealing the images that will be featured the first three months of the year.

The first company we'll be highlighting is Stampendous.  With a wide range of styles and images plus stamps that are wood mounted, cling mount or clear there's a stamp style and material for everyone.  Stampendous also has a variety of other products, including embossing powders, in their catalog.  These catalogs will be available in the store and during class for you to look thru and place any special orders.  Orders will be compiled and submitted once the manufacturer minimum has been reached.  Prepayment is necessary to place any special orders.

This is a Jumbo Cling set.  The Jumbo Cling Sets have been some of my favorite to color and include in class this past year.  And this one is sure to get a lot of stamping!  I've got so many ideas for this!
This image excited me for all the color possibilities it has - the bird, the flowers, the nest.  But after I got to looking at it, there's plenty of inspiration beyond just coloring.  Texture possibilities and product possibilities.  It'll be hard to confine myself to just 3 ways to use this one.

 I've said before I'm not into frogs.  That also applies to toads.  But for some reason these two (separate stamps but I'll be using them together) spoke to me.  I'm not sure if it's the old fashioned Beatrix Potter style of them or the "Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog" that started playing in my head when I saw them but I knew I wanted to play with them and see what they could do.

 Masculine cards are ALWAYS the hardest to create.  This set seemed like it offered plenty of opportunities to create in multiple styles.  I'm anxious to get my hands on it and try out some of the ideas I've got for it!

Don't forget the class naming contest I've got going on.  This new class concept deserves a new name that encompasses all it's about - 4 images, 3 months, 1 company, multiple techniques.  If I choose your name suggestion you will receive either a free class or 5 card kits from my basket, your choice.  I'll leave the contest open until Dec 26 and will announce the new name by Dec 28.
