I am planning on having another Stampin' Up workshop on Friday 7th March from 10:30 to 12:30am. During the workshop you will be able to use various Stampin' Up products to make a selection of four different cards.  This workshop will make use of the 'Wetlands' stamp set and the 'bird builder punch' - so we will have a bird theme! The cost will be £10.  If you would like to attend, please contact me by Monday 3rd March so that I can prepare the required materials.

Banner punch

Here is one of the cards we made at my first workshop last Friday morning.  It is partially CASEd from Julie's Japes but with a few changes.  We used some of this years 'In colours' - strawberry slush, coastal cabana and pistachio pudding.  The banner punch is one of the free gifts you can get this month or next month with a £45 spend.  It is really great for using up all the wee scraps of patterned paper you tend to hoard up, because they're too nice to throw in the bin but too small to use! The centre panel was embossed using the square lattice embossing folder and punches and a stamp from the 'Teeny tiny sentiments' stamps were used for the label at the bottom - a very quick and easy card.

More Petite Petals

Another card made using the petite petals stamps and punch.  The colours used here are real red and pistachio pudding.  The sentiment stamp is from the Simply Sketched set (again) and I've used the border punch and a butterfly from the Polka-dot Pieces stamp set and the butterfly punch.  The label shape was stamped and die cut using the apothecary art set.  The wee green leaves were made using part of the bird punch.

Petite Petals

A very simple card made using some of the products from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. The Petite Petals stamps come in a set of six designs and they can be stamped and then punched out using the co-ordinating Petite Petals punch.  The paper is also from the new catalogue - Fresh Prints designer stack.  It has a lovely combination of colours and the handy size (11.4 x 16.5cm) makes it really quick and easy to use.  It has a mixture of coastal cabana, pool party, real red, crumb cake, baked brown sugar and whisper white designs in it.  The sentiment stamp is from one of the hostess sets - Simply Sketched.
