Late post today. I spent the morning finalizing orders from last nights workshop and then decided to finish up some of my craft fair items for next week.
These are the cards I made at last nights workshop:
The first one is made using the “Medallion” stamp, set of 1. I will have a post later to show you multipe samples I made using this stamp and even a coaster set! I used Certainly Celery ink for the Medallion. Added a few clusters of brads to give it the illusion of holly berries. I then used my Scallop Circle punch in Whisper White, sponged the edges with Real Red ink, using sponge daubers and attached 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back and centered over the Medallion. The background cardstock is Real Red. I had some shimmer paint on back order that I was supposed to receive yesterday but it didn’t show up until today. I had planned on using it on this card for the workshop, but it did not arrive on time. I might give it a try tomorrow.
The second demonstration was a “Bag-A-Lope” for Christmas treats. See my post here on the full instructions on how to make these. Simple and Cute! I used the Berry Christmas stamp set along with the Snowflake punch.
The class project was also from the stamp set Berry Christmas. This is actually a card I made from the regionals packet that demonstrators were able to purchase to make at home. Cardstock used was Certainly Celery, Soft Suede and Whisper White. Inks were Real Red, Soft Suede and Certainly Celery. We used the 1/2″ punch to the holly’s and added Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back to make them “pop”.
I then presented my hostess Amanda with this set:
The butterfly box was a pattern I found on Split Coast Stampers by Qbee’s Quest. I added a little goodie bag inside filled with chocolate kisses.
I also created three cards to go along with the butterfly box:
Towards the end of the workshop, I drew names for the doorprize. This time I used a box I had in my gift wrapping stash and decorated it with Stampin’ Up! products.
A post-it note holder and bookmark:
And three note size cards:
Amanda did very well at her workshop and we even scheduled another workshop for January. Stay tuned for more Medallion cards.
