It's been awhile since my last demo training - yesterday was the first for the year & it was a regional event run by our National manager rather than just my team's event.
32 ladies from Whangarei to Rotorua attended. It's the usual custom to make a card and swap amongst ourselves. My team were using the Time Well Spent stampset that is going to be available in the new catalogue (released April 1, 2008) as a Level 3 hostess gift. Lucky me & I now believe nearly 46,500 demonstrators worldwide received a complementary set on December 1st 2007.
I was very excited about the fact we where all going to use the same set as I thought it would be interesting to see what great ideas would come from one stamp set - though it does contain 12 individual stamps in the set, so lots of room for lots of possibilities without the 100s of possibilities of colour combos. And was I right the colours ranged from brown - orange - green - pinks - blue - purple - red - yellow etc etc. There were Z-cards, buckle cards, spinner cards, tag cards, crayon resist cards (the last technique used was mine) & from small to actually very big cards. It's usual to try & keep the card small to save on card stock & as we had to do at least 30 swaps this time I certainly went for small is best option. Other demos from other teams & of course those that weren't signed up on Dec 1 2007 used whatever they wanted to use. All around an AWESOME effort!!
Anyhow here's my effort:
Cardstock: Glossy white, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
Inks: Basic Black, Rose Red, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery
Other: Gold organdy ribbon, mini glue dot (to attach ribbon), dimensional, sponging, distressing, sponging & of course my favourite tool the mat pack to paper pierce the corners - I just love that effect! And of course a plain white crayon to do the crayon resist with.
I was really rapt with my efforts & decided this is one of my favourite colour combos.
