Stampin’UP! Simply Sketched

Stampin’UP! is always good to share ideas with their demonstrators. They have a magazine that we receive every other month filled with suggested samples and sneak peeks of new products or specials that they will feature. Just before the new catalog arrived they shared a sample similar to the card that I have posted below. I  often enjoy the suggested samples but I may not have the stamp set that they use, or perhaps I want to use that card with a larger group and the sample they show is just too time consuming. That was case with this card. The basic design and colors are what SU used but I switched up the stamp set and the embellishments.

Looking to magazines and other media for inspiration is something that we all do. I am just glad that I don’t feel locked in to using only what is shown. It is fun to watch attendees to my classes and workshops when they are making their cards. Many of the stampers will not vary from the design that I display. They will carefully follow every little detail. At the Launch Party I had some young stampers attending and they looked outside the box. They created their own designs with the materials that were provided. When that happens I know that I have done my job. I have witnessed the creativity of others on their blank canvas, the basic card front.
