I have a class to teach on Monday, so as usual, I had to go through the torturous process of deciding what to do. Should we do techniques? Or concentrate on a holiday or theme? Or should we use all products from the Holiday Mini? Decisions, decisions.
Finally I decided we will do Christmas. Then it was a question as to what kind of Christmas we should do?
At this time of year, stampers start thinking about stamping lots of cards, so they are very interested in designs that are cool, yet don't take a lot of effort. Cards you wouldn't mind making multiples of, which leaves out a lot of really cool stuff. So that's what we're doing and that's why it's called Merry Multiples!
If you live in the Detroit area, the class is held at my house on Monday October 26 at 7 PM. It is $12 for 4 projects, $1 off if you prepay, $1 if you bring your own adhesive, and $5 off if you order at least $25 in product before shipping, handling and tax are computed. I have a limited amount of spots available so please email me at jantink at sbcglobal dot net if you are interested.

STINKIN' CUTE!!! (YILM!) Normally, I wouldn't choose a set that had to be colored in as a set I would use for multiples, but with this spotlighting technique, you only have to color a very little bit for each card.

This card is GOJUS!!! (YILM!) Yet, it is also fairly simple, with the paper helping to bring it up to par. And, since this piece of DSP is exactly a 3" square, you can crank out 16 cards from one 12" x 12" piece! I'm SO clever! (YILM!)
Well, after lunch torpor has set in and it's getting more difficult to be as incredibly witty as I usually am. So I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead. Y'all keep your ink pads wet and your pants dry, y'hear? Ta!
