Today is an exciting day at StampNation. We are introducing a new teacher to our Classroom, Kristy Dalman from Some Odd Girl !
She will be doing exclusive coloring and Copic tutorials for our members and we couldn't be more excited. I met Kristy at CHA in January and she knocked my socks off! I was so drawn to her booth…her, the SOG DT and the fact that her husband was right there by her side at their booth. I love that!
And let's face it…as much as I want to be, I will NEVER be as good at coloring as Kristy is. So why not bring an expert straight to SN? Right? I just had to ask Kristy to join us, and I was thrilled when she said yes!
For the next FIVE weeks, every Friday, Kristy will be adding a new lesson to StampNation. After that, you will find a new lesson on the last Friday of every month.
An expert colorist in residence? How awesome is THAT!? StampNation keeps getting better and better….
Let's take a look at the topics of her first five lessons:
- Intro to markers (types, nibs, etc.)
- Color system
- Smooth coloring
- Blending, 3 color basic blend
- Shading basics
From there, she will create her lessons based on member feedback.
If you haven’t joined us at StampNation yet, learn more about it here.
The SN Design Team is doing a blog hop to introduce and welcome Kristy to our team. Each of us have used a Some Odd Girl stamp set on our project.
Follow the links below to see each of our projects…
We’ve hidden TWO 1- month subscriptions to StampNation along the hop…comment on the blogs in the hop to enter to win. The more blogs you comment on, the higher your chance of winning!
We are also using SOG stamps on our StampNation Challenge cards this week. Here's a peek at my project, you will find the full video tutorial on how I made this card along with a third card that I made that is bascially a cross between my first two cards!
One lucky StampNation Member that participates in the challenge this week will have her choice of one Some Odd Girl stamp set, or 3 Digis.
My project today is a simple One Layer Card. I've been seeing lots of them 'round the net lately and the images from the Everyday Smiles Stamp Set would be delightful on a OLC!
View the video to see how this card was made (viewing through email? click the title to view on my blog).
Need dimensions for this card? nah, I didn't think so! lol
