My garden is so beautiful this time of year, roses popping open, unexpected gifts from Mother Nature all over the place. And in return, my gift to you is our May 14 Make-It-Take-It at Stampin’ From the Heart. These greeting cards are all about spring colors and beauty and I think you’ll like them. While searching for something one day in my vast collection of paper, I came across some colorful vellum and that started things off. We’ll be playing with inks, vellum, colorful papers and topping it all off with a paint chip ticket. Lots of layers and the best part is you can follow one of 6 designs I made or choose your own pieces from an array of colorful cardstock and images. We’ll be featuring the strips of Art Tickets by Invoke Arts. I can’t seem to get enough of them. Make-It-Take-It, Friday, May 14, 2010, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Stampin’ From the Heart, 11720 Washington Place, Los Angeles, 310-391-0466 for directions. Cost: $5 each card. All materials supplied by instructor (me) Jessica Hollowell.
