I wanted to take some time out from challenges to share a couple of projects that I presented at two workshops I did recently. I love doing workshops and sharing new techniques with people, because I know how much I love it when I get shown something new.
|My Take on Belinda's Card|
The first one is a card inspired by a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Belinda Neil, I kept most of the card identical to hers but changed the colours because I wanted to showcase the bleaching technique. I used Baja Breeze for the base and Soft Suede for the embossed panel. I just love the satin ribbon put on as a little feature. I think the "Just For You" stamp from Tagtastic set is such a good stamp to show off the bleaching technique because of that lovely banner in the centre.
This is the project from the second workshop I did, also using the Tagtastic stamp set. The cards were inspired by the lovely Secret Sister gift I received in October (I will post a picture of that in the next few days), and the little card holder was inspired by something we were shown at our Regional training day - I told you I love learning new things! The little card holder is made from the Two Tags die and holds 4 little 3"x3" cards and envelopes. I used the bleaching on the embossing as well on the stamp to highlight it.
The little cards are quite easy to make, the embossed oval is the perfect size to hold a piece of DSP or even a stamped image punched out with the large oval punch. For these ones I punched the flourish from one of the sheets in the Beau Château Designer Series Paper.
