A Couple of Workshop Projects

 Hey there!  Playing with some of my new toys from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Oh my goodness, are they fun!  This card was inspired by a card posted on the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator site.  Yes, only SU demos are allowed to go there and get ideas.  This card is White on White with the top layer spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer.  The Petite Curly Label (SAB item) was punched out of the Whisper White layer first, then the hearts were embossed with the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder.  After that we spritzed.  Looking back, I think I would attach the different colors of hearts first before spritzing so that they could also be shimmery.  Then we stamped the Heart Label stamp (Pretty Petites stamp set SAB)n in Rose Red onto Pink Pirouette and punched it out with the Petite Curly Label punch and attached it off-center with a Dimensional.  The Love stamp is from Lovely Little Labels and is punched out with the Little Labels punch pack.  Since we wanted a larger rounded corner, we used the 1 3/8" circle punch to round them.  The hearts are punched out of Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Primrose Petals, and Rose Red.
This card made with the Just Believe stamp set was also inspired by a card posted on the SU! demo only site.  The original colors were Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip.  I didn't have any Baja Breeze DP, so I used the Floral District Melon Mambo piece.  We stamped with VersaMark on the DP and embossed with white EP.  The Vine Street Embossing Folder (SAB Item) was used on the strip of Melon Mambo.  The background colors are Raspberry Ripple and Early Espresso.  I don't think this photo really does the colors justice.  It's much better IRL.  Oh, and to save a little cardstock, we punched the Modern Label piece of Early Espresso out of the center of the background Early Espresso piece.  :-)  I always love ways to save cardstock!

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station!  I hope you come by again soon.

  1. Julie, these are both beautiful! I love the different colors of hearts lined up so perfectly in the first card. Very cool effect of the flowers embossed in white on the DSP too! It's gorgeous!
