Okay, before you laugh too hard, this was one of my first times with the Spiral Flower die from the Ocassions Mini, and I'm getting better at it with time, but I don't think it's completely awful, but it's definatley different. Anyway, this is a workshop card I did this past week. I used the Retro Fresh DSP, in which I am in love with the colors in this pack! I started with a Pool Party card stock base and then added a piece of the Retro Fresh paper to it. I ran the Hexagon Hive Framelit die (tip when using this die: place a piece of wax paper between the die and the card stock and you will never have an issue with it releasing from the die!) I used my Two Way Glue Pen to adhere it to the DSP. I stamped the sentiment in Tangerine Tango onto Whisper White card stock and then the arrow from the same set in Pool Party. Then came the flower, I used hot glue to assemble it and then to adhere it to the card. I added a Large Pearl to the center because I had an odd gap in the center. So there you have it. My workshop projects are now all posted and I hope this inspires you to go make something fun today!
I made these for my Make and Takes this month for workshops. Seems like everything I do for M&Ts involve chocolate and this is no different. lol I am always trying to show "outside the box" on products that everyone knows how to use just by looking at it. I saw someone show how to make this cute little treat holder from the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch(p. 35 of the Ocassions Mini). I cut a 1 15/16" x 7 1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock and scored it on the long side at 3/4, 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6, and 6 3/4. I added a piece of Fresh Prints DSP(p. 33 of the Ocassions Mini) to the front(love chevrons!) and added some Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon just to the underneath before adhering down permanetly.
I used the Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating punch(BOTH are FREE during Salebration!-p. 13 of the SAB Brochure). I stamped one in Real Red and one in Baked Brown Sugar and then the heart in Real Red also, punched them out with the matching punch. I faux added the Natural Twine just behind the banners before popping them up on Dimensionals and tying seperate ribbons at each end into bows. I added a Basic Rhinestone to the heart and viola, FINISHED! I folded it all up and tied it shut with Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. I hope you are enjoying these projects and that it will inspire you to make something fun today! Salebration starts Tuesday!
