Online Card Class GIVEAWAY!


Hi readers! TGIF! Have you heard about this fun new class coming soon from the creative minds behind Online Card Classes? This new class is called Background Check.

Used code SIMONCHECK to get $3 off registration! Code expires July 17, 2015.

Join instructors Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire, and Laura Bassen—plus special guest artists—for professional instruction, inspiration, and fun! In class, you’ll gain the skills to achieve gorgeous card backgrounds from blended ink skies to stamped plaids… plus you’ll discover plenty of tips and tricks along the way. What’s more, they’ve built in plenty of “design breaks” to allow you to get comfortable with incorporating each of the background techniques shown in class into your own cards!

Class begins July 27, 2015, and registration is open now!

Online Card Classes’ Background Check includes:

  • 20+ videos and cards!
  • PDFs with step-by-step written instructions that you can print out and take anywhere.
  • A forum for discussion between students and teachers. Open for pre-class discussion on July 20, 2015 and then archived on August 7, 2015 for your reference.
  • Giveaways for class participation (winners chosen at random).

I still remember it fondly because I was so taken with all the new techniques and amazing inspiration from Jennifer McGuire and others. Thanks, SSS, for a chance to win a seat in their latest class!

  8. my favorite class was the watercolor class. i am still trying to perfect this skill in that i often get too much water, inky smudges from my fingers, etc. i think it boils down to my need to just relax and let it happen. i would love to take this next class very much.

  9. I’ve only taken one class so far and that’s clean and simple card making. I’m very new to card making and I know this class is old but I figured I would start with a class I could manage. I’ve enjoyed this class very much and have learned many things. Thanks SSS for a chance to win.
