Sunday I had a lovely group of ladies for the Convention's Best class. As you might imagine, I had lots of good options of cards to choose from, so I had to make some tough choices. Actually, I may offer another version of the class to tap into to some of the other great options. Two of the cards the gals did, you have already seen - my bird/bird house card and the LEAF card. I wanted the ladies to have several techniques - these two offered watercoloring with the aqua painter and stamp pads (bird) and the other used the new letter stencils (LEAF - coming out on August 1st in the new mini catalog). Today they were using a dauber to color the letters but soon I will be offering another class where the stampers will get to use another simple and quick strategy... maybe you'd like to join us, too.
So one of the cards we did started out as a variation of one I saw but it ended up so far from the original I'm not sure anyone would actually see the similarity in the two cards!!
Now is a good time to mention that if you want to explore the opportunity to be a demonstrator, now is a really good time to take the plunge. In addition to getting $125 worth of Stampin' Up! product for only $99, from now until the end of August, you also get to choose one of four project kits for free!
