I know I’ve often talked about how good it is to be part of the Stampin’ Up! family and here is the proof. What other large international company would listen to its demonstrators in another country? well Stampin’ Up! does!
We have been asking since Stampin’ Up! began in Australia in 2006 for the Stampin’ WriteÂ® markers to be sold individually as some people don’t want or cant afford a whole pack and just want to buy their favourite colours well now you can! From now till 30th November you can purchase your favourite colours individually for just $4.95! Now this IS a bargain as other markers that are comparable in quality cost much more than that.
I was asked to do a demonstration for Elite Stampers run by Angela Sargeant. She is like my 2nd level upline and we’ve been friends for quite a few years now and I was thrilled when she asked me to do a demonstration. We had many new girls coming to this meeting so I wanted to show them a variety of things you can do with the markers.
Here is a card I made using the Always stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalogue. I just love this set and will be sorry to see it finish at the end of the month so if you’d like to get this set the time is now!
I’ve done the ‘direct to rubber’ technique on the heart. Using the markers I’ve ‘coloured’ the image on the stamp with the different markers and then just given it the ‘huff’ and stamped it onto whisper white card stock. These are so easy to do yet look like a printed image.
Its my sister’s wedding anniversary today so I used the Happy Anniversary from Birthday Cheer and Wishes and will pop this card in the post tomorrow.
Here is another card I made again using the direct to rubber technique. This time I used the aqua painter to drag the colours in a little for subtle shading. The areas I wanted more shading I just took the colour off the tip of the marker with the aqua painter and shaded those areas a little darker.
This card is made using the Summer by the Sea stamp set which is just a beautiful set to own – especially if you like to water colour or colour in.
I have a couple of other techniques I shared with the team on Friday and I’ll share those with you tomorrow.
If you would like to take advantage of the single marker promotion but would also like to learn how to use them more and better then ring or email me to book in your demonstration or to book in for my marker class.
Want to get some markers or products but dont want a demonstration? thats fine as you can ring or email your order through to me. I now also have a frequent shoppers program for those customers who dont want a demonstration but still want to be rewarded for shopping with me. So email or ring for more details on this new program.
Till tomorrow …..
