Jump for Joy

I am so excited to be able to offer this special as I celebrate the opening of my new business. My Open House is coming soon, and you can be one of the first to help me celebrate!

During the month of March, hostesses “jump” to the next level of Hostess Rewards 

when a Gathering reaches $250 or more! More discounts and more free products 
for hostesses. Now that’s a reason to jump for joy!

Be one  the first  to be one of my hostesses in March, and you will receive a special gift from me on top of the extra hostess rewards! You will also get special recognition at my Open House!

There are several ways to hold a Gathering...and with our beautiful products and me to show you how to make the most of them, it's easy to earn FREE AND DISCOUNTED PRODUCTS.

Artsy Card Coloring Series Starting Soon

At our local Card Club, I have had many people ask:

How did you do that?

I love how you did that...

I want to learn how to do that.

Can you teach me?

Yes I can!

A sample of my coloring technique

Artsy Card Coloring Series

This is a series of 3 classes, where you will learn to color and shade using color; no black or gray. This makes your art beautifully vivid. Visit my blog (below) to view samples of my work.

Class 1 - Introduction to Prismacolor Premium Pencils
Basics of Color Shading

Class 2 - My Color Approach
Using Layers of Color

Class 3 - Artistic Accents
Additional Techniques to make your art sing!

All paper, mineral spirits, and stamps along with the ink to stamp will be supplied. You bring your tools such as a paper trimmer and adhesive.

You will also need Prismacolor Premium Pencils and paper stumps. If you do not own  Prismacolor Pencils yet, the best place I have found to purchase them is pencils come in many set sizes.  Although a set of 12 is available, to do this technique properly, I would suggest at least a set of at least 24. 

The cost of the series is $45
With the purchase of Close To My Heart products from me,
you can get your classes at a discounted rate. 
For every $50 you purchase in CTMH products from me during the series, 
you will receive a $10 discount on the series.

Space is limited to 5, so register soon.

As I am writing this, my morning class is full. I have room for 2 in the afternoon class to be held Feb 12, Feb 26, and March 5th.

You will leave my home after each class feeling more confident
about your artistic and papercrafting abilities.

You will also leave with up to 3 completed projects and a goodie bag each week.

Light refreshments will be served. Bring your own drink in a covered container.

If you are interested in attending a class, email me at
Visit my other blog, to see some of my work.

So glad you stopped by,
Please come again soon,

My Creative Journey

It's wonderful to have you stop by...I am the Artsy Stamper, alias Beverly Cole. This blog is devoted to my artistic journey as a  Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.


My journey began years ago, as a consultant. I held my first gathering on September 11th.

 I thought I would have to cancel, but people came! Of course they did. Don't we yearn to get together with our loved ones and friends when tragedy strikes?

Since then, life has gone on, and through the ups and downs of life, the curve balls that get thrown our  way and the miracles that happen all around us, I have come to this point in my life. I have grown and matured, and learned a lot (still learning).

I want to share what I have learned about art with you, through paper, crafts, scrap booking, it's all there waiting to be created.

My vehicle for this journey is Close To My Heart. It truly is close to my own heart, as it has been a constant...even when I had to quit because of one of those "curve balls," CTMH continued on, growing and changing.

And wouldn't you know? It's a perfect fit for my life now!

My kit arrives on Tuesday. My first classes are planned. I am ready to share and create with you.

Welcome to my journey...won't you travel along with me?
