Last night I had a wonderful evening with a lovely hostess. She even invited me round early as I worked nearby, but lived a long way away, so I had dinner with her and her family. Thank you so much Pat, the spag bol was delish :o)
So, our workshop ended up being a group of five lovely ladies, which was a perfect size.
Everyone had a good time, and everything that was ordered has already been shipped by Stampin' Up!, so should be with us early next week - what a delivery service!
We did two make and take projects. The first was using the French Foliage stamp set in the Mini Catalogue. Now this was not a love at first sight set for me - but after seeing so many wonderful creations, and being convinced I had to have it by the lovely Elizabeth Shannon (Blog Here), I was lucky enough to get this set in the raffle at last weekends team training event - so I had to use it.
I made some samples of the first make and take - one in Peach Parfait and Cajun Craze, and the other in Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz. I went with a simple design, doing a masked area and using a sponge dauber to add background colour, before going stamping crazy with the lovely leaves and other images in this set.
It's a great set for over stamping images and just going mad with..............
I used Confetti Cream card stock as this has a lovely warmth to it, and the added flecks in it make really nice to use for a simple one layer card.
After unveiling the sponged and stamped area a sentiment was added with a stamp from the Plane and Simple set.
I loved the end result with these cards, and all of the ladies seemed to really have fun with it too.
Tomorrow I will show you the other card we made, this time making use of the Big Shot!!!!
