First Workshop Part B

I had my first workshop yesterday and it went ok.

A few things went off the plan. Alexander decided to choose his own nap time so he was awake during the workshop.
Vanessa had laryngitis but she did marvelously well supporting me with a fading voice.
And as I know with teaching I definitely had room for improvement in my demo-ing.

Here are some of the cards that were made yesterday – it is interesting to see people’s different takes on it all.

Erika used her spiral punch outs to further decorate the card which I thought was pretty funky.

Then Jenny did her take – I like the two giraffes in the middle – 1 being 3D and I hadn’t thought of doing the lion’s tail 3D.

3D animals

Last was Rebecca who split her giraffe which looks cool and she went wild with the greeting which I think looks great and might have to case.

Wild About You

I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

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.

First Post

Just a page holder to open my new blog launching me into the world of Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator.  I have my first workshop in just little over a week and Vanessa was over last night helping me put the finishing touches to the design of my card for the make and take.  I will be putting it up soon to show you all how great it looks.  I can’t wait to share it all with you.
