Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - May 2020

Hello, and welcome to my May Demonstrator Training Blog Hop, if you’ve reached me from another blog, I’m Dianne (The Purple Rose Stamper) from the UK.  I hope you enjoy my blog and then please do hop along to the next one on this list.

As we complete another 4 weeks in lockdown in the UK, from a cardmaking point of view I have been very fortunate to have a wonderful upline, Michelle Last, who is keeping our group engaged and providing new ways to stay in touch and have fun.  A couple of weeks ago she organised an online scavenger hunt which was great fun. The basics of the game were, for 50 minutes each 5 minutes given an item to find within the house and upload a photo of said item.  There was a prize for the first person to upload the photo of each item and then an additional random winner.  Finally, there was a prize for someone who had posted all 10 pictures.  A random winner was selected and, drum roll……… that lucky person was me.  The prize was the Ornate Thanks bundle.  Therefore, this months cards are created using that Bundle.

I had great fun creating the 2 different cards and love both of them, I hope you do also.

Products used:-

Card:                   Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Blueberry Bushell, Old Olive
Ink:                     Blueberry Bushell
Bundle set:          Ornate Thanks
Misc:                   Versamark, Silver embossing powder

I hope you’ve enjoyed these two cards, and please do hop along to the next Demonstrator on the list to see all the wonderful creations.
