Cards for Him Class Blog Hop


Well, I'm not very well versed on searching out videos or online papercrafts/cardmaking classes, but I know that OH-SO-MUCH-WORK goes into them and I have a huge respect for those that make them.  Therefore, I am so excited to share something that I was happy to be a part of.  StampNation and their Dream Team have been hard at work putting together an over-the-top FABULOUS online class called "Cards for Him".

Cards For Him
This new online class “Cards For Him” is now open for registration!  This is perfectly timed for Father’s Day which is right around the corner, but of course is great for masculine card ideas year-round.

We've joined forces with some of the companies and their designers that have products featured in our class for a BLOG HOP to celebrate the new release of this class.  You should have made it here from AMY KOLLING'S BLOG There are TEN FREE class registrations, as well as a $15 REVERSE CONFETTI gift certificate, hidden along the hop, so make sure you leave comments all along the way.  The more comments you make, the greater your chances are for winning!


Within the class, there are several "themes" to help inspire you to make your best masculine cards ever.  I chose to follow along with the "nautical" theme.  It was super easy to do with my REVERSE CONFETTI stamps--HAPPY HARBOR, COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS, and SO STRIPEY.




 
You have until 11:59pm on May 2nd to leave a comment to be entered to win.  Winners will be announced on May 3rd over on Catherine Pooler's blog HERE.

Click here to learn more and to Register by May 7 to get the discounted rate!

Next on the hop is my bestie, JEN DEL MURO over at REVERSE CONFETTI.  If you get lost along the way, here's the list of all the designers participating.  ENJOY the ride, and do sign up for the classes.  They are GREAT!

  2. I'm seriously blown away by how you have combined those two stamp sets. I never would have thought to use that sentiment, but combining it with the 1,2,3 on your banner and anchors under the sentiment are brilliant!
