Last night I went to a cardmaking workshop at Paper-Source where I bought paper scraps for the collage I blogged about a few days ago. All the materials were provided, along with numerous innovative and specialized scrapbooking tools. One of the coolest tools messed around with was called a Xyron. It turned anything  you put through it (that was flat) into a sticker. Amazing! We also played with heat emboss glitter and funky shaped punches.  I have come to the conclusion that I need some more paper punches. They are extremely versatile.

This was the first card I made. It had the best result with the heat emboss.

The glitter hearts were punched out of paper that already had an adhesive backing. I also used washi tape and a corner punch.

Ombre Hearts were created using the heart shaped punch. This is my favorite of the cards I made, and it is also the simplest.

This was the most complicated card we made. The little banners were super difficult to make, but in the end it turned out well nonetheless.
