January Valentine Workshop

These are the projects we did at a Workshop yesterday. I do all my workshops as THO (totally hands-on) which means all who attend make every project. The focus for this Workshop was St. Valentine's Day - which could also inspire for weddings, anniversaries, showers and the 'Just Because I Love You' times.
The little Pretty in Pink Favor Box perfectly fits a Ghriradelli Chocloate Square - or a small peppermint patty and probably several other types of chocolates/candies. It also uses Rose Red Prints Double-Sided Designer Series Paper, Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Punch, Two-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The heart image is from the NEW Level 3 Host set - Time Well Spent. It is an outline image - which we used the Versamarker to color inside the lines to darken it in a tone on tone manner so it pops out a bit. The Scallop is also mounted on Dimensionals.
The Basic Gray Beauty has no stamping at all! That Basic Gray is such a sexy color - perfect for that special Valentine man. This card also uses Bravo Burgundy and Confetti Cream, as well as Very Vanilla 5/8" Wide Grosgrain Ribbon. This was an accessories & technique card - we played with the Pretties Kit by coloring the big flower with the Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Marker, and the little flower with the Aquapianter and the Bravo Burgundy Water Color Wonder Crayon. Then attached the Pretties Kit ivory pearl in the center.
Clearly From the Heart Card: I have been wanting to make a card using acetate/transparency as the base for several months now. It is a bit more difficult to work with, but oh how elegant! Perfect foran extraspecial Valentine, Wedding card or Anniversary card. We also used Real Red Whisper White and Brushed Gold cardstock. White StazOn ink is perfect for this kind of surface, and that is what the Priceless Set swirls are stamped in. Gold Metallic Encore Ink Pad was used to tip the Scallop Punch focal piece. White eyelets and the Crop-a-dile hold on the Real Red focal piece backing. Real Red Craft Ink and Clear Embossing Powder were used on the heart image also from the Priceless Set. The sentiment is from the Holidays and Wishes Set.
