Today I used one of our hostess sets - Simply Sketched. I love this line drawn set. It literally looks like someone sketched the image. It lends itself very well to watercoloring!
Did you know that we now have the option for you to earn hostess benefits simply by having some of your friends from around the country place an order and include it on your "workshop"? You don't actually have to hold a party in your home. You can even take turns being the hostess! Each of you can place orders over several months and take turns being the hostess and getting the hostess benefits!
If you have a few friends that want to place an order, I can give you a hostess code. They simply go in to my online store to place their order (which will be shipped directly to them) - they enter the hostess code I will give you, and their order will be counted toward your "workshop".
The hostess benefits are pretty generous as well. For just $150 in sales, you get $25 in hostess benefits to spend any way you would like!$250 - $40 free, $300 - $50 free and Once you get to $400 in sales, you get to pick any item in the catalog at half off, in addition to choosing $65 in free merchandise! There are exclusing hostess sets that CAN be chosen as part of your free merchandise (although, you can choose ANYTHING). These sets are available only to the hostess. Simply sketched is one of those sets and is available in clear for $10 (in hostess dollars) or in wood for $14 (hostess dollars).
Would you like to open an online workshop with me today? Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 217-586-7251 to get your hostess code.
Would you just like to place an order? Go to my online store at www.kimpeckstamps.stampinup.net
PLEASE NOTE: I can only sell within the US!
Here is the card that I made using the Simply Sketched set, as well as a picture of the set.
I used Calypso Coral for the card base, Crisp Cantaloupe textured with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder for the background, Pear Pizzazz for the matting around the image and saying, and I stamped the image using Black Stazon Ink onto watercolor paper. To color the image, I used the Marker Layering Technique that I learned from my friend Karen Barber. The marker colors I used were Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral for the flowers, and Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive for the stems.
