As OnStage was on the Gold Coast this year we needed to travel and find accommodation. I booked some accommodation for 4 and had 3 amazing fellow demos staying with me including one of my fabulous downlines.
At every major Stampin’ Up! event we, as demonstrators, have the opportunity to swap ideas with other demonstrators. We are encouraged to make a card front or 3D item to swap with other demonstrators so we can get some additional ideas.
I was really struggling with ideas this time around but after a great chat with one of my downlines I was inspired by re-using one of my ideas that I’d used previously as a demonstration.
So I made these card fronts as my swap using numerous colours. I used the Faux Bleaching Technique. I started by sponge braying ink onto the card stock in an ombre look. I then spritzed the hexagon embossing folder with water and then placed the card stock with ink facing down onto the embossing folder. Take the card stock off and you should see that the water has taken off the ink in the wet places. Let it dry and then stamp another image over the top in a darker ink.
You can purchase all the products to make these cards at my online shop.
Last night I had the privilege of attending CentreStage which is a managers only event. This was only my second time attending,
It was a lovely night where we were able to see the new catalogue and products and receive some extra thank you gifts from Stampin’ Up!
I am unable to show very much at this point on what’s coming. You’ll need to have some patience.
My husband is at home holding the fort for me while I’m away and I’m very thankful for such a supportive husband.
While I was at the dinner, I sent him a couple of texts of my meal. He in turn sent photos of his meal.
Here is what I sent him…
And this is what he sent back to me…
It was a lovely night. If you’d like to join my team and have the opportunity to attend CentreStage then sign up with my ProCRAFTinators Team and you too could be spoilt like we were last night.
