Workshop cards – old and new!

Here are two workshop cards we did last week at Chrysue's workshop.  She had a couple of requests – one was to have me show her some ideas using Flight of the Butterfly stamp set, an oldie but goodie.  She also wondered how to create cards using the Two-Step Bird Punch.  And I know she loves Night of Navy.  So here's what I came up with for us to work on.

I love how simple but how effective this first card turned out.  I paired Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue, along with Inspired by Nature and Flight of the Butterfly stamp sets.  These two sets work so well together.  And of course the Butterfly Punch coordinates, too.

Item No. 111564 Flight of the Butterfly $31.95
Item No. 111656 Inspired by Nature $23.95
Item No. 119848 Butterfly Punch $16.95

And here's our second project:

We began with River Rock card stock, ran it through the Big Shot using the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Framed Tulips.  Then we used a Stampin' Sponge to apply Always Artichoke Classic Ink to the raised portion of the card stock.  We created a pinwheel background using Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.  The bird was created with the Two-Step Bird Punch and Rose Red, and Always Artichoke card stocks and a snip of the designer paper to coordinate.  Each person could stamp a sentiment in the inside.

Item No.121809 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Framed Tulips $7.95
Item No.121782 Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper $9.95
Item No. 117191 Two-Step Bird Punch $16.95

Saying Goodbye to Daisy

A good friend lost her Daisy Dog last week and this is the card I made for her.  I know how painful it is when we have to say goodbye to a beloved pet, and I'm hoping that sending her a handmade card might let her know how much I'm thinking of her.  I started out by choosing the Build-A-Bear Workshop Pawsitively Prints II Designer Series Paper and building my color scheme around its pretty little flower print – So Saffron, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise.  I used a small piece of both sides of one of the papers, then a piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock to back the main image which is punched from an additional piece of the designer paper using the Two-Step Bird Punch.  The Whisper White card stock circle behind the bird is cut with the Circle Scissors Plus.  A piece of Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon is wrapped around the image and tied with some white crochet thread.  I used a Real Red Button from the Brights Designer Buttons pack to add a little pizzazz and tied with some Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon through the center.   Don't forget to purchase some Mini Glue Dots – they're the perfect thing to permanently secure your buttons!  The stamping is done tone-on-tone with So Saffron Classic Ink and two different stamp sets – Always for the branches and Word Play for the sentiment.
