Notice the hearts on the envelope? They are made using the Hearts O'Plenty SU! wheel - so simple but so effective as a background or part of the design. The clear button is placed over a punched circle of designer paper and secured with linen thread.
Now a couple of things that I use for my workshops and classes. A while ago I made a wipes and tissues box, so everyone can keep neat and pretty while we stamp! It had become a bit battered, so time for a new one. I decorated a box using those Heart to Heart punchies again! The opening is a little wide striped ribbon secured with a pretties kit brad.
I decided to use some white SU! rub-ons to make the outside a bit prettier. I confess I am not very good at rub ons - but these went on very well and I love the effect.
So I thought I would end with a splash of colour. I am going to be teaching a Babywipe Technique at my upcoming classes, (shhh don't tell - they don't know yet)! After I finished my sample project, I couldn't stop stamping with the wonderful mixture of Rose Red, So Saffron and Certainly Celery inks!
I had a pile of images and sentiments on my desk, so decided to have a go at an Easel card - my first attempt. I did it without measurements, so I am not sure if it is right - but I have put it up in my craft room and it makes me smile - which is what stamping is all about after all!
I hope you like the projects. Those workshop items will be in heavy use with three workshops and three classes over the next few days - so forgive me if I don't blog until my head stops spinning! Thanks for all your recent comments - they always make my day!
