Easter projects

I had a workshop this past weekend and I made this first card as the project for everyone to make . I used the Stampin' up! products "A Good Egg" stamp set for the chick and the flowers. I stamped it with staz on ink and used the watercolor crayons. Cardstock used for card is Wild Wasabi, Lovely Lilacs, and Chocolate Chip and I used watercolor paper for the chick. I also used "Fast Flowers" Wheel to stamp the background of the wild wasabi cardstock with wild wasabi stamp pad.

The second card I made for the hostess. I used the Wild wasabi and lovely lilacs paper again. I also used some paper from the hostess set prints pack for the inside right of the card. I stamped the chick twice and cut out the egg and put it in the bottom corner with a pop dot to make it stand out. Colored it with the watercolor crayons too. I made the Easter basket for the hostess also.

The first card I made with "Happy Heart Day" stamp set from stampin up. I used the stapmin up pastels and colored pencils. The other two cards are made with "Moose You" stamp set.

Birthday Invitations

This is the invitation I made for my son's 5th birthday. I used "Ahoy Matey" stamp set.

Projects from my first workshop

Here are the projects I did for my first workshop. We did scrapbook pages one for boy or girl. I used "Simply Said" stamp set for the first and "Bugs and Kisses" for the second. What I did for the first layout was I stamped on white paper with the stampin up's whisper white craft ink pad. Then I used stampin up pastels and ponced (do not rub) on the the stamped image with colors to cordinate with the pages. The second layout I did in a similar way but I stamped with colored craft ink and then used a slightly darker color of pastels to accent and give the stamped images more dimension. Its really easy and fun to do. I think it really enhances the images.
