Cindy's Workshop!

I have 3 cards to show you today. Last Saturday I demo'd at Cindy's workshop. We had a great time (Hi Girls!) and a very successful workshop. This was the first card:

I always try to mention some tips while demonstrating. For this card, the "Music Notes" stamp image is actually a wheel stamp and I talked about how to unmount the stamp from the wheel and using our "Clear Mount Cling Foam", make your own stamp. A second topic was how to prepare you stamps when they are bold like the recorder image in my card above. I always sand my stamps with the "Stampin' Sanding Block" to remove the factory film on the rubber. This makes the ink adhere to the rubber better for a nice, crisp image.

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
  • Inks: StazOn Jet Black, Smoky Slate

Card #2:

When I think of Cindy, the first thing that comes to mind is "Tea Party's" as she has a group of girls that get together and have tea parties. So the stamp set I used for the 2nd card was the "Tea Party" stamp set. I showed them how to mix their own colors in the "Stampin' Spritzer's".
