Spring Workshop-March 13. We made spring cards, this one used product out of the new Occasions mini catalog by Stampin' Up!. Designer series paper #117160-Shades of spring. Just beautiful. Cardstock is Certainly celery # 105125 and Almost amethyst. The Stamp set is #118598 Vintage Vogue in the clear block base. They loved working with the clear blocks. Certainly celery grosgrain ribbon # 109031, #116630 Modern label punch, #109128 Build A Brad in pewter. I love working with the build a brads, they add such a nice touch. The scallop punch#112091. Ink colors, So Saffron 105213, Lovely lilac # 102874, Orchid Oppulence #101859 and Versa Mark inside the card #102283. I put lots of other colors out on the table, and they actually created their own look, some even added Dazzling Diamonds #102023. This card was easy to make, the designer series paper has so many color combinations, Barley Banana, Certainly celery, Orchid Opulence.
The eggs were so much fun... using the Eggcellent Eggs Kit #117179. They brought a REAL blown out egg, we painted with our Aqua Painter # 103954, any color of their choice, all Classic Ink, then we decorated with the kit supplies, so much comes in the kit. The Chocolate bunny card is using the stamp #116980, stamped on close to cocoa paper with Craft ink chocolate chip #101816, and embossed with clear powder #109130. This really gave a textured look . Abundant Hope # 118547 using the daffodil and the "Easter Blessing" from this stamp set. Ribbon #117289 Pretty in Pink is gorgeous.

As usual it is so much fun to see everyone creating their own take on a project all using the same supplies.. it's amazing how they can all be different.. I learn so much from them. My friend Chris brought her daughter n' law and her granddaughter.. who was so much fun.. she really did a beautiful job, she won a prize which was a free workshop, and got so excited. I will be looking forward to working with them all again. Thanks Debbie for keeping us laughing and for all that came. What a great way to spend a couple of hours.
For any who missed, we munched on bagels from Bagel Thyme, fresh strawberries, yogurt, coffee, tea, and pomegranite lemonade. Oh, I almost forgot, CUPCAKES iced in green for Saint Patricks Day!
