Card Challenges from my Basics 101 group

This 411 sketch Card was made by Debbie Forguson in Vintage Vogue and matched the sketch to the letter! Beautiful bright colors.I love the positioning of the flowers. The use of her embellishments added the perfect touch.
Amy Monday displayed a beautiful combination of gray and white using the Spring Song SAB set as her sentiment. I love the way the bird is soaring. this card says: Peace, Serenity & Freedom!


This card by Debbie Brown was the overall winner chosen by her club members
Vintage Vogue stamp set with the black,basic gray and whisper white color combo and her butterfly embosslit.

I recently taught a Basics 101 class to my BIG SHOT club which consisted of teaching cutting, measuring, and scoring.
  • How to look at a set of directions and follow them to measure,cut and make their own layouts. In class all their kits are prepared in advance(for time sake) and I felt that they would benefit greatly from learning a few simple techniques
  • Focal point and sentiment layering using Big shot die cuts
  • Simple rules of adhesives
  • How to cut cardstock for big shot projects

This has helped them to use the products they purchase more efficently. This is what seperates your Stampin' Up! Creative coach from the empty aisle you may be shopping on, it doesn't come with a person to guide you and teach how to use each product you purchase and spark those creative juices! I love my job! I love my group of Stampin pals, too! They make my job an absolute pleasure. God is good!

Boy, they are super card makers! They have met ever challenge I have sent them! I have been sending weekly challenges and at club I received tons of cards this month.
Friendly competion is a good motivator, plus doorprizes don't hurt? aay? LOL!!
