Aldershot Womans Institute Workshop - tonight!

Hi all! I've just got back from Aldershot Womans Institute Group where i was demonstrating Stampin' Up! products and then we made two make and takes!
The projects that i demonstrated were variations of 'Sale-a-bration' cards that i have shared with you recently using the 'Fresh Vintage' stampset, the 'Elementary Elegance' stampset and the beautiful 'Everyday Enchantment DSP'.

Here's the first card we made using the 'Big Shot', 'Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder' and the 'Textured Impression Embossing Set':

The cardbase used on this card is 'Crumb Cake', the embossed background has been made from 'Pool Party' card and the sentiment has been stamped in 'Early Espresso' ink onto 'Very Vanilla' card.

Here's the second card:

The cardbase has been made from 'Pear Pizzazz' card. On a piece of 'Crumb Cake' we stamped the floral stamp from the 'Fresh Vintage' stampset using 'Crumb Cake' ink. The borders have been punched using 'Calypso Coral' punched using the 'Eyelet Border Punch'. The butterflies have been punched using the 'Butterfly Punch' from 'Everyday Enchantment DSP', with some 'Linen Thread' tied around each one, and a 'Basic Pearl' placed in the centre. Finally the sentiment (from the 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' set) has been inked onto a piece of 'Pear Pizzazz' card and punched out using the 'Word Window Punch', with a couple of teeny tiny 'Basic Pearls' placed either side.

I had a brilliant evening and loved that the ladies made the design their own! I really wish i took my camera to take some pics of their wonderful creations!!

Some of the ladies left me a couple of lovely comments:

'Many thanks for a great evening with Stampin' Up!'

'I don't do crafty things but i did make two cards with Stampin' Up!'

I had such an enjoyable evening and the time just flew by! If you live local to the Aldershot area why not pop along and attend a meeting. The group meets on the second Wednesday of every month at St. Joseph's Church Hall Queens Road Aldershot.
