Stampin’ Up was in Orlando this past weekend for a little mini convention!  Demonstrators like me came from all over Florida and some even from close states to stamp and learn for the day.  Stampin’ Up has several each year in different states, so they haven’t been here in FL for over 2 years.   They have one more left so I won’t post the pictures of their projects so I don’t spoil it for the last stop on their trip!

I will show you what I presented, though!  I was one of the lucky ones chosen to present what they call a Workshop Wow, which is a project that is easy to do but still shows a little something new.  I decided to play around with our CORK sheets that are on page 205 of the big Idea Book & Catalog:

You get 6 sheets, 6″ x 13″ per package for only 9.95!   I cracked up when someone said “We sell cork?  I didn’t even know we sold that!”

Here are the projects I demonstrated using different mediums. I’ll be doing videos for Stamping School for all these projects but just showing the pics here. (and for those of you on SSchool, these videos won’t count towards your weekly exclusive videos – just extras)

AND by the way, the Designer Series paper you see on these is a sneak peek from our upcoming Summer Mini Catalog!

This first one I showed is just putting it behind our pendant note.  I didn’t get a good pic of it before I gave it to SU after my demo so it’s cut off a bit!

This next one has circles cut with our Sizzix Circle #2 die and I attached our white Fleurettes on with brads:

Embossing on cork is my fav thing to do!  It gets a nice, glossy shine to the image with Craft Black ink and clear powder…

This is another way to alter and emboss the cork using craft, pigment ink and powder:

Just stamping on it with black StazOn and coloring with markers (and another sneak peek of a new stamp set…)

This was my favorite –  a little monogram note set and crystal effects on cork:

I hope that inspired you to get some cork!
