Bird Collage Cardmaking with Stamping Basics 102

There was lots of smiles, a lot of fun and some beautiful collage cards at the Stamping Basics classes yesterday. The one card this week was created using some beautiful stamps by Hero Arts: The Bird Collage and the Simple Frame. (We sold out of them, but they are being re-ordered).
I'll let the pictures tell the story .....

The table is filled with lots of ink and lots of stamps that were needed to create our Master Boards.
From left are Evelyn, Jacquie, Barbara and Kim

There was detail coloring and precision cutting involved too.
Anne, Linda and Carol are busy creating collage magic!

There were a lot of steps to complete with this Bird Collage card. 
This is Sondra's work in progress.

Another collage card in progress. Jacquie is trimming her frame panel.

I was a bit ambitious with my card designs and we only got one card completely in each 2 hour class. No worries, we'll get the other card done next time.  

Here are some of the completed projects......

 I love how each one is unique and reflects the individual design preferences of each card maker.

So here are some of those smiles......

Katie's card turned out awesome!

Christy and Natalie are primarily scrapbookers...they have some pretty great card-making skills too.

It's amazing they were all still smiling even after I told them that there would be homework for the next class.
Gotta love this wonderful group of stampers! 

I'm sure they will all be visiting Jacqueline's photostream and blog as her beautiful work inspired my class card. We will be tackling inchies and grid cards next month....and Jacqueline will be providing my inspiration again. Thanks, Jacqueline for creating such beauty!

Oh boy, wish I was there. Just adore how individual each card is, even when everyone is using the same stamps! What fun it must have been.

Thank you for sending me the link Nancy! These cards are absolutely gorgeous, so full of dimension and color - I am inspired myself now and got a lovely idea from one of the cards.
