Ohhh we've been busy little bees in our stamp club workshops!! If you've missed coming, I hope this gives you a little inspiration on what to do for this wonderful festive season!! Here is a smattering of projects we've done over the last few months! and if you are in the Houston area, I am more than happy to send you my updates for our lastest FREE workshop schedule.
If you would like instructions or product lists for any of these projects, please leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Most of my projects are inspired from other stamper's blogs…who knows which ones? I have a HUGE folder of faves!! if you recognize the inspiration for any of these, please leave a comment! I love to give recognition where it is due!!!
This first project highlighted the wonderful use of glitter!! (we are all still a bit sparkly from this project!) I learned the day after demonstrating this project that the Tombo Multi-purpose adhesive is the best adhesive for glitter in this situation. For this card, I actually used Crystal Effects painted on the tree…i like the shabby look!! 🙂
and have you noticed all of the pink and green Christmas themes around?? 🙂
I love this card! The cardinal was my father's favorite bird, so this stamp is near and dear to my heart! He is painted using pastels and blender pens. And I did use the reinker technique with the flower.
I am soooo loving my Big Shot!! And these little baskets are fast and wonderful!! the tag is from the Country Living Special going on right now!! OMGOsh, if you haven't checked that out, go to my site right now and check it out!! http://sallysangelworks.stampinup.net
Now last night, we whipped out these little projects! soooo fun! and this treat bag is really fast and wonderful. I got the instructions here: After the Baking Hers were a little more complex, but for our candy (which is absolutely delish!), this worked out perfectly!
and for our card this month, we did a gift card holder. inspiration found here! Rainy day Creations
We learned a bunch of stuff with this card, like how to staple before you put the next layer on, so you don't see your staples! LOL!! and how to corner round your paper BEFORE you stick that layer on! And don't forget the all important – dont' touch the stickles while it is drying – rule! i get so tickled when my stampers learn how NOT to do something from me!! heehee…
For our last project, I brought a GOB of stuff for the ladies to play with. I made 6 tags as samples for them to use for inspiration. These use a plethora (word of the week!) of products, and the girls did a great job of adapting to the overwhelming amount of possibilities! Here are my samples:
Can you tell I love my Sizzix Big Shot????
Please feel free to ask any questions or comment on anything! stampin' HUGS!!!
