WORKSHOP September 19 Summary

My workshop on Saturday, Sept 19 was about making cards with matching envelopes.   We created 3 different kinds of envelopes to go with 3 different cards.   Two of the cards featured the Stampin' Up! stamp set AWESOMELY ARTISTIC (#139950).   If is friendly and can apply to all 4 seasons.  The small frame stamp can be punched out using the PROJECT LIFE CARDS & LABELS Framelits (135707).

I was recently on an out of town trip and purchased some fragrant soaps.   They make great little gifts for family members to let them know you were thinking of them while away.   Stampin' Up! has these small muslin bags which are totally stampable, 100% cotton with a drawstring closure, sized at 4"x5 1/2".   MINI MUSLIN BAGS (#132180)  Here's the ones I made and wanted to share the idea with you.    


I used the stamp set CRAZY ABOUT YOU (#138859) for the green leaf and words FOR BEING YOU.  The berries are created with SPONGE DAUBERS (#133773).  The stamp ink colors I used were Real Red, Wild Wasabi, and Blackberry Bliss.
