Hi all!!! Well, I did it!! I wrapped up my last workshop of the month last night and Sale-a-Bration is officially over!! We had such a good time last night, and I got to meet some fabulous ladies...I just love meeting new people. They were a hoot to stamp with - most of them were scrapbookers who were kind of skeptical of the whole stamping thing, but by the end of the night, they were hooked (imagine that *wink*) Soooo much fun!! So, I thought I would share two of the projects we did last night - both were a lot of fun and used some of my favorite stamp sets. The first one is a pocket card which I love creating, I think they are really fabulous! I wanted to create something that felt like spring so I went with some soft colors like So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, and Pink Pirouette, and paired them with the fabulous designer paper called Tea Party. Can you believe I have been hoarding this, not using it because I did not want to cut into it? Silly me - I can always order more, lol!! The stamps are from the set Petal Pizzazz which I like using because it goes well with punches and the images layer well. Both flower images were punched out using the Circle Scallop Punch and the 1 1/4 inch Circle punch and then I cut the leaves all the way around so each flower is very 3d and fun!! I used one of the new flower brads for the center and paired it with Pretty in Pink double striped ribbon, yummy!!! I also used my Romance Wheel with So Saffron ink across the flap, and looks really fabulous IRL!! Here is a pic of the card with the insert pulled out - isn't is cute? I used another piece of the dp, scalloped the edges, added a tab, and stamped my flowers from Petal Pizzazz. And of course, I could not resist a little bling, so there is a pink circle rhinestone brad in the center of the flower. The sentiment is from the hostess set Sweet Little Sentiments...I love these sayings in this set! The second card we did using the Cheep Talk stamp set - I always seem to smile when I see those cute little birdies! I went a little bolder with my colors on this one - I like the contrast! That Pacific Point is soooo rich in color that I will be very sad to see it go this summer! I paired it with the dp Good Morning Sunshine, which goes perfectly with this set. Nothing really fancy here, just stamping and embellishing with some yummy Pacific Point double striped ribbon and using some of my punches like the Wide Oval Punch and the Tab Punch. We did do some paper piercing on this one too, which was a huge hit! I do like how it turned out!! If anyone has any questions about how any of these were done, please drop me an email, I am always happy to answer questions! As always, I appreciate very much that you all take the time to stop by and visit me - it means a lot!! Now, I am off to work on some of my DT stuff and maybe squeeze in a quick shopping trip before I have to pick up the kiddos this afternoon! No events until next week so I have a little breather, lol!! Enjoy your day and squeeze in some stamping!
