Extra, Extra Workshop Fun

Thanks to a fantastic SU Hostess Promotion that is on at the moment, my June holiday break started with a couple of fun filled workshops.

The first design was inspired by a card on page 50 of the IB & C. I used Fox & Friends instead of Cheep Talk, as one of the hostesses wanted me to design a card for the make 'n' take using this set.


The colour combo came from the Play Date DSP and lots of circle punches and one Itty Bitty Flower Punch were used in the making of this card!


The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

I also offered Forest Friends, Funky Four and Cheep Talk as alternative stamp sets to mix and match so that everybody's card ended up being very unique.



Do you recognise this? It's an idea I CASED from the May Edition of the Australian SU Demonstrator's Magazine, Impressions.


I never would have put these colours together but whoever came up with this colour combo and design, deserves a pat on the back as I love the end result (Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Basic Black).

I demonstrated mixing two colours of embossing powder together (black and white) for the En Francais background.

The flower was made using the Blossoms Party Die and my trusty Big Shot machine. This card was my workshop WOW! I was really pleased with how it turned out (... and I sold a Big Shot too - bonus!)


This was just a very quick demo to highlight the fact that the Big Shot can be used to cut out other stuff apart from card stock. These little felt butterflies were placed on a re-created note card with an Antique Brad and a bit of paper piercing to finish it off.

I'll be back on Friday with my submission for the next challenge at Just Add Ink.

Thanks for taking a peek,
