Have you ever used Stampin Write brush marker letters on watercolour cards? They are easy and fun and a knock-out way to share your greetings with others.
So how about we take a peek at all my cards today so you can see their simplicity?
A wonderfully bold greeting on a wash of colour. Sometimes subtle colour, sometimes a bit more vibrant. Then each is simply layered onto your folded card base – with or without another colour panel.
I know you’re thinking, “I could never do that”!
Let me say I’ve heard all the reasons why YOU can’t learn this fun and trendy lettering. Now that’s out of the way, let’s chat a bit about why I KNOW you can!
Stampin Write Brush Marker Letters
My Handwriting is Awful
Learning to letter with a brush marker is not one bit like your own handwriting. Each letter is made up of strokes that I show you step-by-step how to create. I share why I think beginners can have immediate success using a Stampin’ Write marker
I show you how to hold the pen, how to hold your hand and fully explain how to move and hold your arm so you’ll be successful from the beginning. And I go through each and every letter talking you through how to make it on your own.
In fact, lots of folks who don’t like to use their own handwriting or printing LOVE to make brush marker letters like this!
I Don’t Have the Time
Well, we all know this excuse doesn’t really apply right now during Coronavirus isolation and lockdown periods right?😉
And you know what? It doesn’t take THAT much time to learn. In my in-person classes, my participants only spend 2 1/2 hours learning and are fully ready to go home to play and refine. Everyone is making words in as little time as a half an hour.
With my online classes, I’m actually right with you every step of the way. You learn at your own pace. Plus you can go back to the class videos as many times as you want to pick up a particular stroke for a refresher!
And as a BONUS, I throw in lots of words with my class pdfs you can copy!
Yes, there is practice involved 🧐. But I’ll bet it’s not nearly as much as you’re thinking!
I Have a Stamp for That
Yes it’s true there are thousands of stamps available to add to your cards. (And I do love when you order them through me 😊.)
However I don’t know about you, but this happens to me all the time. I can never seem to locate one that says exactly what I want it to say. In exactly the right font, the right size or the right “feel” for my project!
Plus, what if you’re a journaller? Or a scrapbooker? Or you just want to make a sign for someone? Sometimes our stamps are just too small!
Once you’ve mastered the basic lowercase, these letters are easy to jazz up a bit like on this sympathy card.
