Sending out a welcome to Diane.
That’s the thing about stampers, no matter who we are or where we come from, when we sit down at our work tables we all come together! Diane lives in my neighborhood and found me from my Stampin’ UP! demonstrator website. I was thrilled to get a note from her and now today to stamp with her! For all those demonstrators out there who don’t have a website with SU, you really should. It’s a wonderful way to reach out to customers in your area and beyond. About 2 years ago, I had another stamper contact me from my SU website and she is now one of my downline and has signed up her sister and her Mom! That’s how our SU family grows! Don’t ya just luv it?!
This was tough class to start out with. The class was structured around different ways to use our embossing folders. We made 5 cards, most of which were featured in earlier blogs, each using an embossing folder in a unique way. Poor Diane had never used a Big Shot before! Well, now is is a Big Shot pro! She was a real trooper. A big thanks to my other stampers, when I was helping others, they were eager to help show Diane the ropes! That speaks volumes about the kind of stampers I am blessed to have at my classes. Just like me, they LOVE stamping and LOVE to share with other stampers.
On this card we did double embossing. The base of the card is pink pirouette and the accent colors are certainly celery and wisteria wonder. A very soft looking card perfect for the Easter message inside. On the certainly celery layer we embossed first with our wood grain folder, then embossed with our elegant bouquet folder.
The stamp set used was from the Spring Catalog, Secret Garden. We used the matching framelits to cut out the flowers and leaves. One of the great things about this paring up is that you can purchase it in a bundle and save 15%! (Which of course you can then use to purchase other SU products!)
On a completely different note, I would like to send my condolences out to D’Anne T., whose Mom passed away this week. Our prayers are with you as you travel to Salt Lake.
Take care and enjoy every day you have with your loved ones!
