Learnshop Update

Hello everyone!  I am so happy to share an update of the Stamp to Cope, Inc. Art of Stamping learnshop held last week as part of the Berea Festival of Learnshops.  What a wonderful and exciting event.  This was the first time Berea Tourism tried anything of this type and it was a huge success.  Stamp to Cope, Inc. was so blessed to be a part of this great event.  Thank you to everyone who helped make it all come together for us.

Our workshop consisted of two full days of stamping techniques starting from the very basics all the way through to some advanced techniques.  Day 1 we reviewed the basic tools, indexed and mounted stamps, practiced basic inking, and created 5 projects. Some of the techniques we covered included layering, ribbons, white crayon resist, and masking.  Day 2 we incorporated what we learned on Day 1 (that constructivist educator in me) and added bleaching, embossing, and emboss resist.  We ended with a card sketch challenge and some magnificent cards were the result.

What a great way to share the art of stamping and Stamp to Cope's mission.  We have been asked to grow with the program for next year and I am so excited.  There are plans to bring in the local medical teams and spread the word further and earlier.  If you were unable to make it this year, maybe you will be able to join us in 2012.  Blessings, Jeannette
