I am so fortunate to belong to a card swap club run by my friends, Lynn and Janea. We "chicks" at the Hen House thought it might be a good idea to create one for Hen House customers to come and learn new techniques and also swap cards with fellow stampers/scrappers. Here is the info for the first swap meeting:
Saturday, August 27 1-2:30pm
Technique Swap Club $10
Join The House Swap Club with Deedee Stroud and enjoy experimenting with different techniques or supplies every month! We'll meet on the 3rd Saturday of every month (except Nov and Dec) from 1-2:30pm to swap our cards learn/practice a new technique. You can participate one month at a time, so there is no long-term commitment but prepayment is required a week in advance to reserve a spot. Make 10 identical cards to trade with fellow swap club participants and one to be displayed at the store. If the card you make uses more than 50% of product previously purchased from the Hen House, you will get a special discount after class on a featured item. At the end of the class time, you'll take home 9 cards made by fellow swappers and one or two cards that you will make using the new technique.
For the August technique, we will be learning "embossed kissing" which turns regular stamped images into embossed "negative images" and then we will color then with Distress Stains. So the photos below are so grainy. It's so fun! If you are interested, call the Hen House 221.6366 to reserve your spot or register online.
