Cards from the Virtual Stampin' Up! demo-only event on June 18, 2022

 As I mentioned in a recent newsletter, I attended a Stampin' Up! event on June 18, 2022.  And since I didn't purchase the collection of products they suggested, my projects look very different.

They suggested we use the Splendid Day suite on pages 64-65 in the July-December 2022 mini catalog.  Instead, I used the Ringed with Nature bundle on page 62 of the same catalog and the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper on page 7 of the July-August 2022 Sale-a-bration brochure.

For Card #1 we used Blends markers to shade light to dark on a Basic White piece of cardstock and layered that over a piece of Designer Series Paper.

Card #2, features an embossed background.  I used the new Tree Rings hybrid embossing folder and added color to the Crumb Cake embossed panel using Soft Suede ink and a Blending Brush.  They used the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder and added white craft ink to the Calypso Coral embossed panel with a Blending Brush.

Card #3 has 4 die cute shapes as our focal points.  I used one tree ring die in the new bundle.  I fussy cut my sentiment, too, for added interest. I remembered to stamp on my envelope!

Card #4 features the negative pieces from die cutting the shapes for Card #3.  I just stamped on my Crushed Curry layer using the stamping-off technique to get a lighter shade of Crushed Curry. 

They stamped and embossed images with white embossing powder as well as Soft Sea Foam ink.

Stampin' Up! events are a highlight of being a demonstrator.  Maybe you'll be joining us next time!
