First SU Event Today

Well, it was a little disappointing, but at least it is under my belt. I held my first Stampin' Up Open House today. Twenty invitations resulted in two attendees! But, that is okay. I think they are both interested in My Digital Studio and participating in my Stamp Club to start in October. I may be off to a slow start, but I am just going to keep on plugging along. I love paper crafting!

After I cleaned up from my bomb of an event :) I made this card.

Stamp Set: Holy Family
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla, Old Olive
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon; SU Markers and Blender Pen

I started with a Bravo Burgundy card base and rounded the corners with the corner rounder. I cut a piece of Very Vanilla slightly smaller, rounded the outside corners only and ran through the Big Kick in the Holly Cuttlebug embossing folder. Next I cut a Top Note out of Old Olive. The image was stamped on watercolor paper using Timber Brown Stazon ink and then colored with SU Stampin' Write Markers. The image was then cut with the Curved Rectangles Nestibilities. I stamped the star with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. The halo around the baby's head was also embossed in gold. Then I used a sponge dauber and sponged all visible surfaces with Champaigne Mist Shimmer Paint--love that stuff! I added the 1 1/4 inch striped Old Olive grosgrain ribbon and cinched it at the top with a piece of Old Olive satin ribbon.

I am really please with the results. I will definitely be making another card with this set. So pretty!

  1. This is really really pretty!! Think of your event this way... I have never even held one, so you are further along with me and I have a whole year of being a demonstrator under my belt!!

    At least the two people who came are interested.. that's better than having 20 people come and no one is interested.

    I'm sure the word will get around and you will get more people interested. I am finding that just having my online page gets new people. I have several people who order from me who I have never even met!

    I'm sorry I am going to miss everyone this weekend... I know it will be a great time! :)
