Hostess Club finale


Well, one of my hostess clubs is done for this catalogue year. It's always a bittersweet time saying good bye to ladies who can't continue for a myriad of reasons yet sharing the excitement of a new Stampin' Up! catalogue release mere weeks away.

This card was their final project, and I think it was their favourite for the year. I'll upload a few of their other favourites over the course of the next week. I laughed when several of my ladies said they had never even heard of sage shadow. I must be a very bad demo! It's one of the favourite colours in my house. I use it a lot and my oldest DD's are painting their collective rooms this colour, just with different accent colours.

They used Boho Blossom to create their own dp (a review technique from last year) and highlighted with a white gel pen. I taught them emboss resist with the watercoloured bloom and they made this card as a hinge card - they loved that, I think!

I end with a sentimental *sigh* looking forward to the new catty year ahead!

Beautifully done. I don't use Sage Shadow nearly enough. Thanks for the inspiration.

I agree with, Gloria - I don't use Sage Shadow enough. I love how you made your own DSP with the stamps and gel pen (gotta remember that technique!). TFS
