My First Workshop

Hi!

I ran my very first Stampin' Up! workshop on Sunday. I had a fabulous time and the whole experience confirmed that I made the right decision to become an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

I thought I'd share with you the cards we made. Brooke, my hostess, wanted to have a play with Stampin' Around Wheels so we made 2 cards with the So Swirly Jumbo Wheel. I CASED the design of these cards from Roz Veevers, a very talented Stampin' Up! Demo.

For the first card, we used Ballet Blue highlights. This card was rolled straight along the card stock:



For the second card we used Regal Rose highlights and rolled diagonally across the card stock. It gives a slightly different effect:



The guests had a few options with the cards: the orientation of the final card (tall or wide) and how they were going to adhere their sentiment. The Ballet Blue card has only the Whisper White section of the sentiment raised. The Regal Rose has the whole sentiment raised. I think the guests liked being able to make a few choices.



For the third card, we made a card that was a bit more difficult. Brooke's favourite colour is purple, and as soon as she saw Rich Razzleberry she loved it. So what else could I do but get them to make a Rich Razzleberry card:




This card used a heap of different techniques and products: border punches, tearing, 2 step stamping, fussy cutting, sponging and stamping off. The ladies loved making the card, and their cards were fabulous.
