First Workshop

My First Workshop CardHere’s the card that I “designed” for my first workshop this Saturday!

This card has been “cased” from a variety of sources. I originally got the idea from one source (a card that was on Vanessa’s table one workshop), went home and played around with it and had my hubby chip in a few suggestions. Then when Vanessa came over she had some design ideas from another website (you’ll have to remind me whose it was ‘Ness) and this is what we have.

On 3 whisper white squares I stamped 3 different animals from the Wild About You stamp set in cameo coral and garden green. I used my stamp-ma-jig to align them so I got the bits of the animal I wanted on the square. Then on another piece of whisper white card I stamped the animals again and cut out the different sections that I wanted to be 3D. The lion’s mane (my hubby’s fault, I originally did the lion’s head and he innocently asked me how it would look with the mane.), the elephant’s ear and a little bird to join the giraffe. I used the portable cutter kit to help cut out the lion’s head and just leave the mane.

I used the spiral punch on a strip of black card and then stuck the 3 animals on the strip.

Next I (actually Vanessa), used the Circle of Friendship Stamp set that is in this month’s escape promotion onto cameo coral. She cut out around the circle (though at the workshop we will be using the 1″ punch) and then cut out a circle of black using the 1″1/4 punch and punched out the middle of the congratulations stamp using the 1/4″ punch. I used dimensionals so the circle would stand out and tied black and white gingham ribbon through the circle.

All this was placed on a cameo coral card.

I also used my stampin’ spots to have a olive green and Ruby Red flower for the elephant.
