My mother-in-law moved into a retirement community in November.  When she moved in and Randall and I checked this place out, the first thing out of our mouths was “How old do you have to be to move in here?”

Seriously, this place rocks.

It’s brand spankin’ new, has amazing amenities (a restaurant, bar, cleaning service, indoor pool, I could go on), this place is so nice and fancy and reminded us of a cruise ship.  Mom!  We’ll be moving in there with you just as soon as we can!  lol!

But that’s not the point of this post…the point is to share this project with you!  Anna and I went there a few weeks ago over her spring break to stamp with some of the ladies.  I hadn’t stamped with new stampers in a looooong time.

I forgot that they need the basics…how to ink your stamp without getting ink All. Over. The. PLACE!

How to apply adhesive.

How to stamp and not wiggle to avoid edges.

Cards For Him inspiration

We had a great time and hope to bring some fun stamping and card making to the ladies over there again soon.

Here is one of the cards we made.  I thought it was great for beginners and you know what?  It’s a PERFECT KISS Card (Keep It Simple Stamper).

It’s also super versatile.  I used this layout on a masculine card in our latest class, Cards For Him.

I hope you are inspired and look in your stash to see what stamps you have on hand that would look fabulous on this layout.

At the bottom, I used striped patterned paper.  Would you use patterned paper or would you stamp a graphic design there?  So many options!

Have you taken advantage of the early bird pricing?!
