I recently took part in a papercraft workshop with my lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and crafty friend Valerie using the fabulous new Follow Your Art suite. We wanted to show different techniques with colouring stamped images and the ladies in the workshop set about making their versions of these cards…
The card above was coloured with Stampin’ Blends, as was the ribbon. This was a technique that none of them had tried before and they were well and truly converted!
The next card was coloured with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender pen instead…
These cards are based on the samples created at OnStage back in April with just a few tweaks to make them easier to do at a workshop. It’s great when the design work is already done for you, lol. What was even better was that they all put their own personal spin on the cards to reflect their own styles and preferences. It was a lot of fun.
Once the ladies had got to grips with their new colouring skills we introduced them to some heat embossing on the cover of a notebook like this one…
Some of them had never done any heat embossing before. I’ve been doing it for years but watching that powder melt still feels magical to me so it was a pleasure to share that with others.
It looks like the next workshop will be fully subscribed and I can’t wait to see what Valerie designs for it.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects as much as we did. I’ve listed some of the products used below and you can click on any of the links to visit Valerie’s online Stampin’ Up! store if you’d like to purchase any of them.
