I had a successful workshop Saturday with a great group of ladies! Some were old friends, some became new friends!! Thanks ladies!! Here are the two cards we did.
First, we used the Happy Birthday image from the So Many Scallops SAB set.
The colors are Ballet Blue & Pumpkin Pie. Have to say I started with the ribbon and went crazy from there! The hostess had also requested scallops. The end result seemed very happy to me, like a birthday card should be!!! The background is the jumbo wheel, Spot On with a Ballet Blue cartridge on Whisper White. The Pumpkin dots were added by dabbing a sponge dauber and applying with a twisting/press motion where needed. We stamped the scallop image twice, once in Pumpkin Pie and once in Ballet Blue both on Whisper White. The stamped Pumpkin scallop was punched with the Scallop Punch. The Ballet scallop had just the center punched with the 1-1/4 circle punch, and was layered onto a Ballet Blue circle punched with the 1-3/8 punch. We added a little "bling" to the candles by using Mono Multi glue & some of the Light Blue Fine Cosmo glitter. We layered the glittered image onto the Pumpkin stamped/punched scallop. We rounded the corners of the Whisper White & Pumpkin Pie layers. The Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain ribbon was tied around the white & all layers adhered together. We used two pieces of a Stampin' Dimensional to layer the scallop over the ribbon.
Next, we used the Bloomin' Beautiful set from the Occasions Mini. We stamped the main image in Basic Gray and colored with Elegant Eggplant & Old Olive watercolor crayons. We applied a little color to the images and blended with a blender pen. The layer behind the main mage is Basic Gray, card base is Elegant Eggplant, white layers are Shimmery White. Very pretty IRL!!! The background has the flower image stamped in Elegant Eggplant & the blossom definition image in Old Olive. Both the flower & definition were stamped off once on scratch paper first, to give a more subtle background. The edges of both white layers were sponged with Elegant Eggplant. The bloom is stamped in Basic Gray. Check out that ribbon slide-pretty cool huh!?! That is from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. The ribbon is the new Old Olive Poly-twill. Also very cool!!
