Free Friday-Vicki's Workshop!

We had lots of fun at Vicky's Workshop......lots of new girls......welcome to the addiction of stampin'!

This is the first card I demo'd:

So nice and easy when you have punches and stamps that coordinate isn't it? You could actually complete this card in minutes. I stamped the flowers first...Pear Pizzazz Ink on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock & Calypso Coral Ink on Calyso Coral Cardstock and cut them all out with the Blossom Punch. Same with the centers, stamp and cut with the 1" Circle Punch, add a brad in the center and oh, by the way, those brads can be earned for FREE during Sale-A-Bration!......add a Stampin' Dimensional in the center and glue to the flower!

Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Petite Pairs, Bordering on Romance
  • Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral
  • Tools: Curly Label Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Blossom Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cardstock: Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Sahara Sand
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Set (SAB)
Card #2:

This is a cute little Valentine's card I made with the solo stamp S.W.A.K. I stamped the lips on another piece of Whisper White Cardstock and hand-cut with my Paper Snips. Pop it up with a Stampin' Dimensional:

Lots of layers but again, very simple. The Designer Paper layer was embossed with the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Folder. I then sanded the "bumps" with a Sanding Block. Did you know all of Stampin' Up!'s DSP has white paper core in the middle? When you sand the paper, white appears!

  • Cardstock: Rose Red, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White

And for the last card of the night. All the girls made this card to take home with them:

We used quite a few new products from the Occasions Mini Catalog:

We used a strip of Sticky Strip in the center of the stamped image for the ribbon. And the sentiment was stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink:

  4. I'll bet these were a hit at the workshop. My fav is the Valentine card. Just got that stamp and this is a great idea. TFS.

  5. Three wonderful cards! I've been trying to resist buying Mixed Bunch, but I've seen so many wonderfully easy cards using this and I think your card may have been the final push to get this set too!
