As promised - finally - here are the pictures of my September workshop! The pictures from the October workshop will be forthcoming shortly! I really do have a good excuse for being a bit behind the ball - my MIL has been in the hospital for the past 4 weeks and will likely be there for a while yet. We have been going there on a daily basis. It has been touch and go, lots of prayers...but let me tell you how a bit more about these cards ...
Really - creativity is therapy! Create for others, for yourself, but just do it! Whatever it is you enjoy, do it!
Here is a quick list of items:
C1587 Santa Claus
A1168 O Holy Night
D1553 Yuletide Greetings
I used all three sets for those three cards - love it!
Cocoa, bamboo, cranberry, Juniper
Cranberry, Ruby, Black, Colonial White, Sparkle & Shine (retired)
Gold shimmer trim, red bakers thread, 3-d tape, itty-bitty sparkles, clear flourishes, red shimmer trim, sponge.
I also used the Artbooking Cartridge to cut the label for the Marry Christmas for the last card - makes it so much easier! Some of my ladies in the class are complaining that I am using the cartridges, because now they want to buy the cartridges - I mean, you get 700 images with each cartridge, 3 stamp sets and some other goodies!
As you look at each card you can see that I embellished each card with either distressing, or I added some markers to add some "umph".
Please go to my website and check in my "shopping" are to look for any of the items I mentioned up above. Any time you are looking for inspiration for cards - look at any of our previous idea books (I still have plenty extra) or our How to Books. That is where I go if I need inspiration. The internet is also a great place to go.
Please, let me know if I can help you be more creative - have fun!
