spectacular stamping is my fave

October 14, 2014

I’m teaming with Craftsy to learn some new skills and share them with you. Craftsy offers hundreds of online video classes in sewing, cake decorating, photography, art, cooking and many other categories all led by expert instructors.

I have to admit when I heard about Spectacular Stamping, the latest free Craftsy class I tried out, I thought stamping was so basic there was no need to take a class about it. If you have the same thought, take a look at what you’ll learn in this class:

– masking technique
– stamping in foregrounds and backgrounds
– heat embossing and embossed resist stamping
– stamping on vellum and acetate
– fussy-cutting embossed images

I hadn’t even heard of most of these techniques so what I thought would be a basic class actually turned into the one I’ve learned the most from so far. I used these newly acquired skills to create this embossed pillow box and favor bag. stamped pillow boxes

My projects are simple (you got to start somewhere, right?) but Joy Macdonell, the education director for Simplicity and EK Success Brands and instructor of this class, gives expert tips that will have you making intricate cards in no time. Perfect for the upcoming gift giving season!

Want to add these skills to your crafting repertoire? You’re in luck because Craftsy is offering this class to yamf readers for free! Just sign up here for the free class and start stamping away. This is the perfect way to try out Craftsy, risk free. Cheers to that.

Craftsy is a yamf sponsor but I would love their classes even if they weren’t. View their entire class catalog right here.
