WCMD - World Card Making Day at my place

Well to celebrate WCMD & becoming an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin' Up! I thought it was a great idea to invite my friends around to check out all the lovely cards, boxes etc I've been making & get them making a card for WCMD. Must admit I'm pretty proud of my efforts as unlike some of my family I don't have an artistic bone in my body but with the wonder of stamps & lots of special embellishments I can now make beautiful cards that people go WOW over & I feel like a clever puss & it's so much fun!! Enough gabling & onto our stampin' efforts.

Thought as most first timers it was good to show 2-step stamping & sponging (& paper piercing if brave). Most took to it like a duck to water & lots of creative juices flowed freely. A BIG thank you to my niece Amber who helped with the tag making, my neighbour & friend Judy plus a new friend I've meet through SU! Janine (a fellow demonstrator).

We used the very versatile Petal Prints stampset ; colours used were Vintage Violet, Mellow Moss or So Saffron (& Very Vanilla). For the kiddies (& some oldies) various stamps, inks, marker pens, glitter & liquid appliqué used to make some really cool tags for Christmas. Lots of fun was had by all & the kiddies are requesting to come back next Sunday for Part 2!!

You put on a marvellous afternoon Karen and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and proudly taking away the cards and tags they had made. Hint - next time buy some cheap watercolours and brushes for the kiddies to use!!

Oh well they had a lot of fun & are asking for more demos - so they can re-use the "altered ones" in the future. But yes agree may have to dust of my watercolouring brushes for the small ones - they're gathering dust in a back drawer as I was no artist.
