Tami's Workshop

Last night was my first workshop from the new Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter Catalog. It was kind of tricky coming up with cards to demo as 80% of my stamp sets were discontinued in June. I did manage to place an order for some of our new accessories, but haven't bought many new stamp sets yet. Anyway, this is what I came up with:

Hostess Gift Candy Jar
This uses our new wasabi double stitched ribbon, new designer series paper and new Sweet Sampler stamp set. I filled the jar with Jelly Bellies.

Easy Make and Take card
This card uses On board accents chip board circles, new designer series paper and new wasabi double stitched ribbon. Everyone got to see how easy the Crop-a-dile punches through chip board...like butta!

Wild Rose Birthday Card
Tami wanted to learn some distressing/aging techniques, so I came up with this card. The only new product I used is the designer series background paper (and the crop-a-dile for setting eyelets).

Here is my prototype, showing the pull out.

Build-a-Flower
This card uses the new Accents and Elements Build a Flower stickers...love those, so cute. I used the double stitched ribbon for the stem, a rhinestone brad for the center and scalloped the grass with the slit punch. I found this idea right in the new catalog. So fast and easy...even a caveman could do it!

Vintage Brocade/ Thinking of You Card
This card uses the new...and very elegant Brocade Background paper. I got this idea from one of the talented ladies on Split Coast Stampers. Also used the scallop technique here along with some holes punched with the Crop-a-dile. Used the new 1" circle punch which is the perfect size for our clear buttons. Stamped motif is from the Sweet Sampler set.

Those look amazing Alyssa! Glad you gals had fun stamping it up!
I like the candy jar and the chip board circle that you punched out. I would like to check out the crop-a-dile. I will google it later b/c I don't know if I have ever used one or seen one before. Sounds like an all in one kinda tool?
Anyway, all your make and takes turned out great!
I'm sure there's a ton of stuff that I will be tempted to buy. I love that Wasabi ribbon b/c I like that color.
I really liked that flower card, so cute!

These are all adorable.
Did you make all these at one workshop? WOW!
My customers would be jealous.
