“Faux Watercolor Stamping Bliss” ideas for Christmas. Hello everyone – Cathie Allan here! One of my classes this year is a wonderful, flexible class called “Faux Watercolor Stamping Bliss”.  To achieve the watercolor look for this project we did not even use water.  The result was a page and a tag/card that did not warp or heave and we did not have to use a bucket of mediums to create it.  I love using my mediums in unique ways, allowing them to multitask for me and mimic other products. The projects that we complete in the class looked like this …. A wonderful masculine page and great “guy” card.

That’s a lot of years of providing quality products to customers who are obviously happy! As scrapbookers, cardmakers and paper crafters; we all use tools to cut.

One treasured moment from this year happened when a young gal came back to me after the class (she was on the crop floor…
