Yay! Time for a Stampin' Workshop!!

Here's a couple of samples I demonstrated and made at
Tammi's workshop.

I showed a variety of uses for the Big Shot & Stampin' punches.

The more I use my Big Shot, the more I want to use my Big Shot!
Find it in the Stampin' Up! Catalog Page 204

 Each of these projects were made using the Big Shot,
either by cutting or embossing.

We made this card at our demonstrator meeting & loved it
(who wouldn't love the purses)
so I used it again at Tammi's workshop.

The designer paper is one of the items you can get FREE during
I used the Ice Cream Parlor paper
pg. 7 in the Sale-a-bration mini catalog. 

The Daffodil Delight card stock was run through the Big Shot
Square Lattice embossing folder (pg. 214)

Frost White Shimmer Paint - by Stampin' Up!
I used the Frosted White Ink for the
little purse "closures".  (pg. 195)
This ink is so pretty and comes in 3 colors. 
You can also make your own shimmery paper by putting a few drops of this ink
in a spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol. 

Build A Cupcake Xl Punch - by Stampin' Up!
The Cupcake Punch, sold in the Occasions Mini catalog pg. 22, was used for the purses.  Punch just the bottom part of the cupcake, turn upside down so the scallops are on the bottom and apply handles made from two sizes of oval punches.  Punch the small oval first then center the larger oval over the smaller oval punched out area. 
The purse "flap" was made with the 3/4" circle punch. (pg 203)

I used the Stampin' Dimensionals to apply the purses.

Isn't this black & white butterfly card elegant?!
I saw one similar on-line but changed it for my card. 
I'm anxious to make it in a variety of colors.
A beautiful & quick card!

This is the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die that I used. (pg. 215)
How cool is that?  It embosses the wings & cuts out the butterflies!

Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die - by Stampin' Up!

Elegant Bouquet on page 214 is the name of the embossing folder I used.
No wonder the card looks Elegant.
I used the same ink for the center of the flowers and body of the butterfly.

Do you see our little Ema's picture on my travel mug?!

This project started to pop as soon as I ran the Daffodil Delight card stock through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. (pg 214)
It immediately became more cheerful!
