I LOVE going to demonstrator meeting because there are A LOT of very talented ladies that have been with Stampin' Up! for a long time and they are ALL so nice and helpful. I know there will always be great make and takes and a fun technique to try.
This card uses colors and accessories from the Springtime Vintage Suite that starts on p. 14 of the Occasions mini catalog:
I LOVE the Valentine's Card we got to make. It uses the glitter paper(available on p. 7) and some other fun accessories - rhinestones, punches, etc.
This photo shows a technique that you can use with Big Shot dies AND punches. It is called "A New Twist." In this example you would use the Top Note die - after you run your paper through, take the shape and turn it 90 degrees and center it on the die. When you run it through again you will get the new shape.
This is another card I made for a Stampin' Up! contest for new demonstrators to make a card using only the supplies we received in our starter kit, I sent it to my best friend. I was waiting until she got it to post it...but I can't wait any longer (she should have it by now).
