After several months pondering about this I finally decided to become a Stampin' Up demonstrator (the offer at the time I joined in the UK was too good to resist - sorry it's expired now)! I had my first workshop at my house and had 5 guests turn up (good job it wasn't more as I can't fit more than that round my dining/kitchen table - I really ought to action my ideas for an extension!). Despite being very nervous for the week or so beforehand, it went alright on the night (well that was what I thought anyway)! I was on a real buzz by the end and had got some orders. I phoned my Mum to tell her the good news and the ex-teacher in her came out - she told me to write down what had gone well and not so well!!
Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the card we made, but the one below is very similar (apart from the non-SU greeting and non-SU gems).
Cardstock/Paper: SU Rich Razzleberry, SU Whisper White, SU Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack (Brights)
Stamps: SU Vintage Vogue, PTI Enjoy the Ride
Ink: SU Old Olive, SU Rich Razzleberry
Tools/Accessories: SU Ornament Punch, SU Stampin Dimensionals, SU Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Self-adhesive purple gems from stash
As you can see the colour combo is Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry (don't you just love that name and the way it trips off the tongue?!)
A la prochaine! Amitiés.
