San Antonio Regionals

Well, I did make it back from San Antonio!  I had a wonderful time not only at the Regionals but spending time with friends too!  It's amazing how hard it is to be away from family though--I still feel like I'm trying to catch up around the house even though I was only gone two days.  :-)  

Anyway, here's a picture of the card that I made approximately 20 times during my Workshop Wow Demonstrator Booth presentation during the Regional.  I had about a 10 minute presentation that I repeated over and over.  Surprisingly the time went very quickly, and only my voice was worn out by the end. 

The technique I was sharing was using Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere Dazzling Diamond Glitter to your projects.  A very simple but effective technique.  If you've followed my blog for awhile, this isn't a new concept for you as I do this a lot!  

So I stamped the flower image (from the new stamp set Mixed Bunch found in the Occasions Mini Catalog), peeled off one side of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, and then face-planted it on top of the stamped image.  So the sticky part is touching the image.  Use your bone folder to burnish it--to make sure all the adhesive transfers to your card stock.  Next I used my Blossom Punch (also new in the Occasions Mini Catalog) to punch out the image with the adhesive sheet on top.  Burnish the edges again with your bone folder and then peel off the second side of the Adhesive Sheet.  Last, pour your Dazzling Diamonds over the top.  Now you have a fantastically sparkly flower.  :-) 

I added the flower to the card base (Sahara Sand) that also had some of the new Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon and a strip of Perfect Plum card stock that I ran through the Big Shot with one of the new Adorning Accents Embossing folders.  In the center of the flower is one of the new Large Pearls.  So many fun new accessories!

I still have more samples to share, so I'll be back later.  Unfortunately I forgot to ask someone to take a picture of me while I was busy doing all this, or even my display board, so you'll just have to imagine that part.  :-)  Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to say hi during the presentation last Saturday--I really appreciated it!

Great cards! I'm sure your presentation was awesome. I just started using the adhesive sheets for this same technique. Don't know why I waited so long. TFS!

I did my demo about 15 - 20 times. I did a two for tea cookie and tea pouch so check my blog for info. I was dissappointed that I missed every one elses demo. Wish they had let us all demo on main stage so we could all see each other. Would have made more sense and coporate would have only had to do their thing once. We could have swapped make and take times with a break and done one card at a time switching break and stamp times, anyway here is my blog info

I loved your presentation and the finished products. I'm new to this technique but will immediately share it with my stampers. Thanks for the great inspiration!
