Sale-A-Bration Workshop

Posted on

Good Thursday morning to everyone! One more day until the weekend! A wonderful friend of mine, Isabella, hosted a Workshop at her beautiful apartment in Manhattan yesterday. She had eight of her friends join us for a fun filled afternoon of card making. We made three cards, a Valentine’s Day card, a mini Valentine’s Day card and a Birthday gift tag. The Valentine’s Day card uses Pretty In Pink and Whisper White Card Stock and some Riding Hood Red Ink. The cupid is from the P.S. I Love You Stamp Set and was punched out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and then it was backed by the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle and popped up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing folder makes for a fun backdrop and we used the Scallop Edge Punch for a little added detail. The little hearts are from the Candy Conversations Wood Mount Stamp and they were punched out using the Small Heart Punch. I find that using the Word Window Punch to punch out your sentiment makes lining it up a little easier and it fits perfectly on the Modern Label Punch.

For the mini Valentine’s Card we used some Naturals White and Riding Hood Red Card Stock with some Elegant Eggplant Ink. I love the way the Petal Card Punch looks like a tiny envelope if you leave one of the flaps open. The hearts are from the I {Heart} Hearts Stamp Set and they were also punched out using the Small Heart Punch. For the final touch, the sentiment is from the P.S. I Love You stamp Set.

Last but not least is the Birthday tag. A nice quick project using Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla Card Stock, some Poppy Parade Ink and a small piece of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration. The cute little birthday bear os from the Host(ess) Set Tagtastic. We used to the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out and it’s finished!

Everyone had a great time and it was so nice to meet everyone. I hope that we can do it again soon!
