Okay, as promised I'm back...for this week anyway :)
I had my first SU workshop in the beginning of August and we made these 2 projects.
The first one was a simple A2 card that they loved creating. I got to show them the spotlighting technique and showcased several SU products.
I used Rich Razzleberry CS (119942)as the base. I LOVE THIS COLOR and it's starting to become one of my favorites! I used Pear Pizazz (a new in-color for the next 2 years) (119795) to accent the card. Stock up on this CS as it's one of everyone's favorites!
I used the Herb Expressions stamp set (#113224)as the focal image and I spotlighted at portion of the stamp and popped it up w/ dimensionals.
I used the scallop trim border punch (118402) to accent the pear pizazz piece and I sponged around the whisper white focal image w/ soft suede classic ink pad (115657)
Finally I used the newest bling (basic rhinestones 119246)that SU sells and put 3 rhinestones at the corner.
The next project was a gum holder. I used the simple friendship stamp set (113397) which is one of my favorites and then I used the butterfly sizzlet dies to make the small butterflies.
I had them color the images with SU markers or the markers of their choice and I used the tiniest rhinestones out for the basic rhinestones set to accent the flower centers. I also applied the 2 way glue pen to other flower centers and also on the "bumps" of the larger butterfly and the border of the smaller one so they could use dazzling diamonds fine glitter (102023).
Finally as a treat for all of the guests, I used the petal card Extra-large double punch (119273) to make this little candy holder for them. I used the level 2 stamp set Cute by the inch (120130) for the sentiment.
All in all, the workshop was a success! They all had fun and the hostess got great deals!
