Each month I stamp with residents at a local senior living center. The skill of the residents varies a great deal from able to stamp to some that have difficulty holding the stamps. Each month I try to find quick and easy cards that they can do easily enough but look awesome too.
The residents love to color and this month I thought it would be fun for them to try out the new Watercolor Pencils. I used the retired Sale-a-brations paper Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (2 1/2" x 4") for one of this month's cards. Some colored the entire front while some highlighted just like I did in my sample. Once they had it colored we used the Blender Pens to blend the color they thought it was amazing.
I love the Whisper White Note Cards for easy cards no prep cutting all ready to go. The new catalog features a similar black and white designer paper called Just Add Color for those who love to color. If you have placed an order with me in the past year your catalog should be arriving mid to end of May. You can start to order June 1 at Noon from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.
The second card we made I CASED from fellow demonstrator Jackie Bolhuis. I pre-cut the butter fly using The Big Shot and the Butterfly Thinlits . I pre-tied the baker's twine through the button for them ahead of time. I inked the stamps for them making easier for them to stamp them and since it was a bit random they were able to stamp them successfully.
This was a wow card but very easy for them to stamp and they felt so proud of their completed cards.
They always look forward to me coming and I am filled with so much Joy when I leave. While I have no sales and no "real" customers it is one of my favorite events that I do each month.
The Stampin' Up! mission statement is...
To LOVE what we do
and SHARE what we love
as we help others ENJOY creativity
& worth while accomplishments
In this we make a difference.
On my stamping day with them I truly feel like I make a difference.
