Apothecary Art Summer Workshops Time!

I will resit the temptation to mention the weather as we approach our 'summer' workshops!

For our next workshops we will be working with the elegant stamp set Apothecary Art. Apothecary Art stamps have their own matching 'framelits' dies which make it a breeze to perfectly cut and nest the frames.

I struggled to decide which papers to use this month - I loved Twitterpated and Attic Boutique. These papers can be found in the summer mini for a limited time. In the end I decided to use both!

Here are the first samples using the Attic Boutique papers.

Here's a little gift box I decorated. I love the colour combinations in this - good old Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and a hint of Daffodil Yellow.

 I love the bird on a branch punch that makes an appearance in this card. Using it with these bright patterned papers really creates a nice effect.

The Attic Boutique papers are so pretty and there is such a variety of designs in one pack.

And for the last couple of Attic Boutique samples ............... simple yet very effective.

Moving on now to the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. These colours are much more vivid and eye catching.

Twitterpated uses a lovely combination of Island Indigo, Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray.

The queen of techniques Mandy Webb showed me how to make these perfect little bows on the next card. So easy when you know how........and if you don't already, you soon will!

 If you look very closely, you will see that my favourite Stampin' Up embellishments are making an appearance in this one.....those lovely little pearls.
A wedding card and an end of term teacher card!
 And that's all for now. If you are coming in July or August I look forward to seeing you all.

And as always......thanks for looking !
