So, I am now a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and I am really excited. I had my first open house this past weekend. I actually had two dates since summer is so busy. I had 8 crafters Saturday morning and 15 (!) on Tuesday night. I had such fun. I gave them a couple card ideas and they had a blast. I had a lot of first time stampers that gotten bitten by the bug! I was amazed at how creative the girls were. Lots of people came up with their own layouts and used other stamps and ribbons that were out and about. I sure wasn't that brave when I started!
So, here are the cards I demonstrated for make and takes:
Stamps: Give Thanks and baroque motifs by Stampin Up
Inks: Old Olive, Rose Red, sahara sand, Chocolate chip, garden green and pumpkin pie
Papers: Very Vanilla, certainly celery, chocolate chip, close to cocoa, pumpkin pie
Ribbon : certainly celery
tools: daubers, blender pens, post it note for masking, paper snips and dimensionals
This is what one of the Suzanna the first time stamper created (wow huh?):
The pink ribbon is from American Crafts
I loved her pink knot and she even showed me how but I'll have to have her show me again!
Here are some other things I had as examples and door prizes. The box uses baroque motifs and the card uses seeing spots.
Hope you can come next time!!
