A Prep-Free Workshop

Hi All,

Back in January, I took a Sunday afternoon and joined a girlfriend at a fellow Demonstrator's house for some creative time at her Workshop.  How nice to not have to design, cut and prep for guests...I actually became the guest and it was so much fun!  I haven't been a guest since I became a Demonstrator a few years ago.  I forgot how much fun it is to share ideas and someone else's sense of design.

Gina designed some super cute cards for us using the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions products.  Loved all of these!

This card uses the Bow Builder Punch and pairs it with the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper. These bows were relatively pretty easy to put together and are just adorable!  The Best Year Ever DSP (Item ID: 138633) can be earned FREE by spending $50 in product until March 31st. The punch can be ordered with the details below.

Item # 137414 Bow Builder Punch $16.95

I had a lot of fun with this technique.  Looks complicated, but is soooo easy!  Pick out (3) different embossing powders.  I pour mine in separate ziploc containers and use plastic spoons for easy pouring.  Stamp your image/s with Versamark.  Holding over your container, pick your first color and pour the powder straight down the center of the image.  Then repeat with the remaining colors till the whole image is covered.  Heat & set and you are ready to go.  So quick and easy!

Item ID: 136835 Another Thank You $15.95

This card uses the Lotus Blosson Stamp from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It's a 3-Step stamp that allows you to mix different colors to create the different shades you see on the flowers.  So versatile! You can earn Lotus Blossom (Item ID: 139143) for FREE when purchasing $50 in product until March 31st.

Item ID: 133739 Large Polka Dot $7.95

Sheltering Tree...that's the name of this stamp and exactly the feel you get from it.  So many options with this set.  You can use that tree for every season of the year and the accessory stamps are perfect for each of those seasons:  a rake, a swing and a bike.  Pretty sure this was one of the most popular sets from the Occasions Mini.

Item ID: 137163 Sheltering Tree $24.95
So thankful that I took the time to go get crafty with someone else's designs.  Hopefully you enjoy Gina's work as much as I did.  If you'd like to add any of these to your collection, pop me an email or click on the Order Icon in the top right hand corner.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
