Workshop with New Stuff

I have a workshop later this week where we will be playing with new colours, new stamps & new tools, I cant wait! Here is what we will be making:
Each of the cards is done using the Vintage Vogue set, along with sentiments from On your birthday & sincere salutations and some background work with the very vintage wheel. I have used rich razzleberry, melon mambo, soft suede & old olive for the colours, and the tools include the top note die, polka dot embossing die & little leaves die, plus various ribbons.
These first 3 cards have been inspired by Marelle Taylors work found here. I loved her cards as soon as I saw them. Originally I was not going to run a class in May with convention just around the corner, but using her work for inspiration made it easy to put a class together, so thanks Marelle!
On the weekend just gone by, we had a little pre-convention catch up at our uplines, Yvonne Campbell, house, and I spied a very attractive card on her shelves. I took a little pic of it an my phone and used it as inspiration for this card:
It's mostly the same, with a few minor differences. I want to take the time to thank all of our lovely blog friends who share their work! It makes everything so much easier when you need to come up with something, but it is also a huge inspiration for new stampers who don't know where to start! Thanks for all of the lovely bloggers that I follow for putting yourself, and your work out there to share with a bunch of strangers! It's really great:)

I had lot's of fun making these wed night. Especially love the butterfly on the last card that was from the vintage vogue wheel. Actually I don't think that's the name of the wheel, but you know what I mean.

Hi Leonie,
I wondered what you were up to! Have fun at convention. I won't get to go this year, but look forward to the new colors, returning colors and of course all that goes with it. You look like you have been busy. Kiss the girls for me and have fun! Lovely cards as usual.
