On Saturday I enjoyed a wonderful day presenting a Stampin' Up! Workshop for my friend Rita and her group. We've been stamping together for MANY years.. gosh.. not sure how many.. maybe at least 8 or 10 years, Rita?
I brought the supplies for these 3 cards for the guests to make at the Workshop.
Left to Right:
Lotus Blossom Card - see this post for video and more instructions - we added some Stacked with Love Washi tape to the card and also sponged our own background paper with the FREE Irresistibly Yours Sale a Bration paper (see this post)
Blendabilities on Black Card - See this post for a video and more instructions
Butterfly Basics bundle Card - see my blog post later this week
This amazing Lotus Blossom flower stamp is by far the most popular FREE Sale a Bration choice item among my customers this year. I just love how you can use one ink pad and get WOW results!! We made this card at Rita's workshop .. I brought the Stacked with Love Washi Tape, too and we loved the black POP it brought to the cards! You can select this stamp set FREE with your $50 online order!
The cards above that we made at the workshop were stamped on the Whisper White Note Cards using the Calypso Coral ink pad for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz for the stem and for sponging the leaf design from Irresistibly Yours (a free Sale a Bration item too!). Stampers had their choice of ribbon.. left to right; Sale a Bration Best Year Ever ribbon, Calypso Coral Seam Binding and Wild Wasabi Seam Binding.
See this video for stamping the Lotus Blossom with only one ink pad color.

After I got home from the workshop I decided to play with stamping the Lotus Blossom flower in more than one ink color.. so the samples below were stamped with Calypso Coral for the 1st layer, then Strawberry Slush for the 2nd layer and then either Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe or Strawberry Slush for the 3rd layer... stuning results, don't you think!?
My Stampin' Up! Color Combo:
I was thrilled to see Lacey at the workshop.. I had not seen her for a few years! She selected the Lotus Blossom set as her free Sale a Bration gift!! :)
Check out these ADORABLE gifts that our hostess Rita made for each guest.. wow.. she always outdoes herself!! She used the Tag a Bag Accessory kit and doilies to decorate the Chevron Bags! You can also save moolah buy purchasing the bundle!
There is an awesome drum set at Rita's house... each year it's our tradition to take a group shot at the drums... did you know it's my secret fantasy to someday be a drummer?? Yep!
