Workshop Samples

I did a workshop here last week and wanted to keep it fairly simple as I expected new stampers. First we did this card using the Flight of the Butterfly set.

First we stamped the Polka Dot background stamp on Whisper White with Bashful Blue. Then we did the butterfly in 2 steps: First, ink up the background and stamp off once. This gives us a lighter shade of blue. Then, stamp the dots full strength. You have the choice of "winging" it with the dots, or using the stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up. Add the "trail" of words and your ready to layer it all together! Add the Bashful Blue striped grosgrain around the background layer and you have a quick and easy card!


This one I did to show them another color option and a couple "step-ups". We added glitter to the dots on the butterfly with a 2-way glue pen. A very messy pen-sorry ladies! I also added a brad in the lower corner. Otherwise same card, quick and easy, but a completely different feel!


Lastly, of course I had to use Upsy Daisy! For this one, we stamped the flowers on the background in More Mustard on More Mustard by moving the flower stamp around and stamping some off. To color the flowers we used the marker, in More Mustard first, then stems in Old Olive. Make sure you "Huff" on it before stamping to refresh the ink! Stamp the verse at the top, sponge the edges with some More Mustard, and add a ribbon at the top. I really like this reversible ribbon!
