Demonstrator Trade Cards

Christmas Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Petite Pennants Punch.Where do you get your card ideas?  OK, silly question, you're here and reading this blog post so I guess you get your ideas from blog surfing.  Well, here are 2 other ways I get ideas:
1.  from other demonstrators
2.  from the pictures in the catalog
And I have examples of both.

Yesterday I posted a photo of a purse organizer that I gave my downline at our meeting this weekend. An altered DVD box that looks like Santa's suit - cute if I do say so myself.

Today I'm sharing trade cards from 3 of the demonstrators on my team.

The photo above was my trade, made with the Petite Pennants Punch and the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder for the Big Shot. The Make & Takes all focused on this punch and had our business discussion on using the punch.  More on that later. Today some trades.
Sue's trade features a stamp called Traditional Touches.(wood mount only)

Mary's card features stamps from a set called Cottage Window.


Mary's card features images from 2 stamp sets: Countryside and Harvest Blessings.

These 3 ladies are my "downline" because they bought the Stampin'UP! starter kit through me.  As a group we get together often, we shoot for once a month but we keep in regular contact through email, the phone and a private website. Each of these people bought the starter kit for very different reasons:
*One joined because she had a group of friends ready to support her with parties and sales. Her business is doing great.
*The 2nd one joined because she is thinking of doing this as a business when she retires, but that is several years away still. For now, she's just having fun (lots of fun).
*The 3rd joined because she is a novice stamper and she just wanted a discount on her initial supplies and wanted access to people who would support her as she learned. If you ask her she'd say she has really learned a lot.  She knows so much more about the product and her stamping and design skill are growing too.

Do you see yourself in any of these descriptions?  We'd love to have you join our team.

Check back later this week to see our Make&takes and to see a project inspired by the catalog.

Happy Stamping
