We used the Gel Press printing plate, Dina Wakley paints, and RubberMoon stamps (Birthday Cake & Make a Wish designed by Kim Geiser).  We have a few stamps left if you need these (of course you do!).

So the new class schedule for July is a little smaller as Lisa will be out of town the first week (a rare vacation! - Yay for her!).  It's a really great schedule though so don't hesitate to jump in on a class or 2 or more!

Kae Pea Workshops

Day of Makeys
A good time was had by All!

What fun we had when Kae Pea from RubberMoon Art Stamps came to share one of her favorite things to do - "Get Makey".  Kae Pea is the owner of RubberMoon and we get some of our favorite rubber stamps from her.

It was lots of fun.  Kae Pea treated us to 4 "Makeys" and each one of them was wonderful.  I wanted to show you some of the student work but I haven't had my "big girl" camera out in so long I chose all the wrong settings and they are not crisp enough post individually.  I did create a photo collage 'cuz the bluriness isn't quite as pronounced in smaller size.

A good time was had by all.....  I am hoping Kae Pea can come back in September to teach a few more involved classes.  She is so talented and creative.  She shares her love of art and rubber stamps with everyone and is a wonderful teacher.  If you didn't get in on these classes, I hope you'll join us for something RubberMoon in the future!

Our selection of RubberMoon stamps currently occupies a large amount of real estate in the classroom area of the "house".  Come by and shop this section soon.  You will find a great selection of some of the newest releases by artists Nathalie Kalbach, Keshia Deveney, Elizabeth St. Hillaire, Sunny Carvalho, Kim Geiser and we have a lot of Kae Pea's favorite basics as well. Moonlight Duo Ink Pads are a specialty of RubberMoon's and feature 2 colors side by side in one ink pad container.  Come by and let us show you some unique ways to use them.

Hope to see you soon and remember to.....
