Dave Brethauer from Memory Box is coming to town!



Once again we are so very fortunate to have Dave Brethauer from Memory Box Rubber Stamps coming to teach at Stamp On Over/Cranberry Hill Mercantile.  Dave Brethauer is the designer and co-owner of Memory Box, his rubber stamp and scrapbooking company in Seattle, WA.   He works with watercolor and colored pencils and has taught hundreds of classes around the country on how to combine these techniques with rubber stamping.
If you would like to check out his blog 
(where we are mentioned - blush) 
click here Dave's blog.


SPECIAL:  Sign up for both classes and receive a $10 credit towards your purchases on the day of the class! (you will also receive our standard 10% discount for class participation).

Memory Box Holiday Colored Pencils  
Saturday, July 23rd from 10 am - 12 pm  
$40.00/20 participants

Come and learn about color, blending and shading while using Memory Box images and papers and our latest dies! Each student will make 5 cards using colored pencil techniques that will make you color like a pro. We'll put color to work in analogous and complementary colors schemes to really make your greeting cards stand out!

Memory Box Watercolor  
Saturday, July 23rd from 1:00 pm - 3PM  
$40.00/20 participants

This fun class teaches watercolor through watercolor paints and watercolor pencils. Learn the advantages of each watercolor media and get some helpful tips for applying watercolor to greeting cards. Try out different types of watercolor paper while learning washes and blending techniques. Each student will create 5 cards in an informative and supportive teaching style.

A note from Dave regarding supplies:
I will provide colored pencils, watercolor pencils and brushes. If a customer is comfortable using their own pencils, brushes, paints, they can bring their own too - please have students bring a paper trimmer, scissors and adhesive (strong double stick tape works well for the watercolor class). 

I will use Prismacolor pencils for the colored pencil class and Faber Castell (Albrecht Durer series)  watercolor pencils and Twinkling H2O's. Also, in the watercolor class we will be using 140 lb cold press and 140 lb hot press paper.
