Lisa's Workshop!

Have you ever hosted a workshop with your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator? If you have, you know they are a lot of fun and the best hostess you get to earn free product with the sales from that workshop. If you are local, contact me today to schedule one. If you are not local and would still like to host one, I have a new program starting soon and I hope to debut this program by next week so stay tuned!

This is the first card that I demo'd at the workshop:

This is called a collage card as there are multiple layered and stamped images and just a hint of bling:

For the butterfly I stamped it first on the background and then layered two more over it with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it a 3D feel:

For Card #2 I used Vellum Cardstock and stamped the image with StazOn Jet Black Ink. I then flipped the Vellum over and colored the flowers and leaves with Stampin' Write Markers. This is called the Stained Glass Technique:

The other flower images are stamped on a layer of Whisper White Cardstock that peeks through the Vellum:

See how nicely the marker colors peek through?

And I had a topper to glue the layers underneath, especially the Vellum so that the adhesive did not peek through:

For my final card, all attendees made this by sponging on our Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper called Irresistibly Yours. The white that you see is clear embossed so the sponged ink "resists" in those areas. All we did was wipe the excess with a tissue:

The tree was stamped using the "Reverse Photopolymer Stamping Technique". I did a video on this technique that you can see here: Reverse Photopolymer Stamping

How did I layer the Apothecary Accents Die shape? I cut one out of Early Espresso Cardstock and cut it in half on the long side. Snip off the 4 pointy ends and glue under the stamped layer:
