Mystery Hostess Workshop & New Catalog Open House!

I held a Mystery Hostess Workshop & New Catalog Open House on Tuesday and all the attendees created two cards each. Congrats Roberta for being chosen as the Mystery Hostess!

This is the first card everyone made. We used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called "Lotus Blossom". Isn't it fantastic? And what is really fantastic is that you can earn it for FREE with a $50 order through my online store!

The scalloped paper in the background is also another Sale-A-Bration item you can earn for FREE. So....place a $100 order through my online store and get both of these items mailed to you!

The paper is actually embossed with white on white cardstock. I added color by sponging Sahara Sand Ink and the embossed areas resist the ink to create this magnificent background! There are six different designs and the paper is called "Irresistably Yours".

Here's a close-up of my beautiful 3-step flower:

And the sponged embossing. Oh look, we also have a brandy new tag topper punch called "Ornate Tag Topper Punch":

For our 2nd card we inked up the new "Spring Flowers Embossing Folder" using Tangerine Tango Ink and a Brayer. We added a Whisper White Cardstock layer inside the folder. Once we put the folder through the Big Shot Machine, look how beautiful the background layer came out:

The stamp set used here is the new "Painted Petals" stamp set. How fun!

I hope you enjoyed my two cards. We had a great time at the workshop although it was so cold out here. Thanks to the girls that attended. I enjoyed having you!
