Stamp Workshops Feb 24th and 25th

For my workshop on Friday and Saturday I had 2 cards.
Everyone made 2 of each.
The card below uses the Apothecary set in the Occassions Mini catalog.
I used Pool party, Poppy Parade, Crumb cake papers and the new pleated ribbon (also in the occassions mini)
The Everyday Enchantment designer paper is from the Sale-A-Brations catalog.
This card can be modified to be a Thank You, Sympathy or several other options.
I used a blender pen to get a watercolor effect on the flowers.
The Card below uses the "Faith in Nature" hostess set.
The card stock is Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla and Naturals Ivory.
This design for this card came from the Stampin' Up Idea book and catalog.
I used blender pens again to give this card a watercolor effect.
I used Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks

I am happy to say that both classes were pretty full.  Yea!
If you didn't get a space reserved. I will be having more.  Send me your email address and I will add you to my mailing list.

Office Valentine Treat Bags

I made these little treat bags for my co-workers.
I filled them with peanuts, peanut butter filled pretzels and peanut butter cups.
I didn't mean to have everything peanutty, but it turned out that way.  They were tastey.
A little salty... a little sweet.
I used the Big shot to emboss the little hearts on the red background paper.
(see below under the silver heart)

I used Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Silver Glimmer Paper.

Swap cards and then some

The next 3 cards are the cards I made for a card swap with my Utah Stamping Friends.
I can't wait to see the cards they send me.

The Birthday cards below are part of the card swap also. 

I made some cards for a co-worker. She wanted some cards to send to her neice through out the year.  The rest of the cards in this post are the ones I made for her.  I also gave her one of the Valentine Cards above.
This is a Thanksgiving card.
I was having a little difficulty with the Easter card.  I don't usually make Easter cards.
But I think this one turned out really cute.

I really like the way the Halloween card turned out. 

The St. Patrick's Day Card
