Hostess Workshop Projects

Happy Monday!

So, last week I had my first workshop in ages. My good friend and fellow stamper Quinn, hosted a workshop at her new house. It was a great girls night out full of food, chatting, and stamping! I thought I'd share the cards we made that night.

This first one is a wedding card in monochromatic colors. We used the stamp sets To Have and To Hold and Baroque Motifs. The embellishments are a pearl and ribbon and a scalloped punch that was cut to look like a flower.

This next card was for "Christmas in July." We wanted to make a card using a retiring set and this one is perfect. This is Snowflake Spot. I love this set and will be sorry to see it go.

I made a circle frame which we laid over the white piece, sponged on ink and snowflakes, then covered in Versamark and Iridescent Ice EP. The corners were punch with the ticket corner and we added a rhinestone brad. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet.

This card was made using Priceless. I love this set, but rarely take it out. My hostess requested we use it and this is what I came up with. We used some Berry Bliss DSP and ribbon for embellishments. The dark butterfly was stamped and cut out and glued on with crystal effects to make him pop up.

This last card was the easiest card we made all night. My hostess loves Tart & Tangy, so we made this quick card with that set. I do hope it makes it into next year's Spring/Summer Catalog. Most of the girls at the workshop have this set, so it was a chance to show them yet another way to use it. The only embellishment on this card is crystal effects on the scalloped lime slice. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet.

Thanks for taking a look. Have a great day, happy stamping!! :)
