Audrey's Workshop

I had such a great time at Audrey's workshop on Wednesday. Workshops are a great opportunity to share my obsession, I mean joy, of crafting with others. Three of the guests were first time stampers and they did so well and everyone had a lot of fun. Audrey was a lovely hostess and I thank her for introducing me to such wonderful ladies. I demonstrated the new scoreboard that was introduced in the Holiday Mini. I briefly described how medallions (some call rosettes or lollies) were made using the scoreboard. After the demonstration I presented Audrey with the project I had made for her:

This Halloween Wreath has a styrofoam base that is wrapped in black crepe paper. The medallions are made out of basic black card stock and Halloween DSP from last year that has since retired. The stamped images are from the On a Limb set in this Holiday Mini. The colour combinations are black, white, pumpkin pie, old olive and concord crush. I am busy making a few more of these wreaths for Halloween and then I will be moving on to making the Christmas version.

As part of the workshop we did two make and takes. Here is the first one:

This Christmas card has a cherry cobbler base and a layer of whisper white embossed with the new snow burst embossing folder. The stocking is from the Stitched Stockings stamp set and is stamped on whisper white with cherry cobbler. It was then punched out using the stocking builder punch. The cuff, heel and toe of the stocking were punched out of the new silver glitter paper using the stocking builder punch also. A fancy bow is made using the new cherry cobbler quilted ribbon. With the addition of some rhinestones to the stockings and the bow, there is some pretty awesome bling on this card. Love it!!!

The last card we made was a birthday card:

The ladies did so well with the builder punch on the first card that they were pros by the time this card came around. The base is melon mambo with a whisper white layer embossed with the polka dot embossing folder. Some lovely melon mambo scalloped dotted ribbon was tied in a knot above the happy birthday stamped in old olive. The scallop circle base is in old olive cut with the Big Shot and the perfect pennants die. Another layer of whisper white embossed with the polka dot embossing folder makes the background for the cupcake. The cupcake base is stamped in chocolate chip on whisper white and punched out using the cupcake builder punch. The topping is punched out of melon mambo with some chocolate chip sprinkles. Voila, a cute happy birthday card.

In addition to working on Halloween wreaths, I need to prepare for Club this week. Club projects will be posted later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by.
