Trudy's Workshop

Trudy and the girls were in my home last night for their monthly workshop and these are the projects I created for them:

The red in this photo did to photograph well. I used the "Heart Pressed Letterpress Plates" inked with "VersaMark" ink for the background image.

Other supplies used:

  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Pretty In Pink, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Tools: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Die, 3 1/2" Circle Die, Heart Pressed Letterpress Plates, Decorative Label Punch, Heart to Heart Punch
  • DSP: Glimmer Paper
  • Accessories: Linen Thread
  • Inks: Real Red, VersaMark
  • Stamp Set: XOXO

Card #2:

This is considered a 10 minute card. I used the "Corner Rounder" on all the bottoms of each layer. I used the "Rock N Roll" technique on the sentiment stamp. This means that I first inked the stamp with "Real Red ink" and then rocked the edges in "Early Espresso ink". I also used the same color inks on the twig image. I used the "Real Red" on the top part of the stamp and "Early Espresso" on the bottom part.


  • Cardstock: Early Espresso, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Stamp Set: Valentine Defined
  • Inks: Early Espresso, Real Red
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Grosgrain Ribbon in Early Espresso
  • Tools: Corner Rounder

Card #3:

This is the card all the girls created to take home with them.


  • Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake
  • DSP: Love Impressions, Glimmer Paper
  • Tools: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Impressions Folder, Heart to Heart Punch, Two Tags Die, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder
  • Stamp Set: XOXO
  • Inks: Real Red

Trudy's daughter loves Calla Lily's and so I gave Trudy this set as a hostess gift:

You can find the original posting of this set HERE, which also includes a tutorial.

I also drew names for a doorprize and these were the two items:

This set also has a tutorial HERE for the goodie box. I filled the goodie box with Jumbo Buttons.
