I held a Take Ten workshop last Saturday at one of my regulars homes and I must say that all the ladies loved how their cards turned out – its amazing how different all the cards turned out considering they all used the same stamps, inks & cardstock.
What is ‘Take Ten’?
This technique is also called “One Sheet Wonder” You take a plain piece of white A4 cardstock and stamp all over it using 3 or 4 different stamps and you can also use a greeting stamp in it too if you want. Once the sheet is filled with stamping you then cut up various sized rectangles, squares, strips and triangles and you use these shapes to make 10 cards. Its alot of fun and I’m sure my customers were a bit wary at first but once they had made a couple of cards they really enjoyed the challenge – we even had a first time stamper (Hi Cathy) there who was very impressed with herself and the cards she’d made.
These are a sample of the cards we made and we used The Snowflake Spot stamp set to stamp all over our sheet and we added a couple of the snow flurries as well as fillers. You can do this technique with any stamp set or theme and the class costs just $15 per person so if you’d like to book in for one of these classes then please contact me to arrange a suitable date.
