During my stint as a Stampin Up demnstrator I kept my pledge that I would only use their products (makes sense, I don’t disagree with that). Now that I have resigned, however, I can play with my copics again! I had fun as a demonstrator but I realized I was never interested in turning stamping into a job… I know, I know- I should have seen that coming! I HAVE to keep my regular job though and could never devote the time it would take to be a career demonstrator. I thought I’d host enough Stamp-A-Stacks to buy supplies and keep my quota, but I never realized how much work it was! I truly is a lot of work. Props to you guys! Plus I was designing cards for Stamp-A-Stack people and while they were all VERY nice…. its fun to just make cards for yourself. I mean, to give away…. thats why we do this right? Anyway, I’ve veered off topic. I got this BittyBloom in the mail from Stamping Bella (http://www.stampingbella.com/) and went to town with my Copics! Its amazing how vibrant and bright their colors are! I don’t even have suitable paper for copic coloring (note to self, order pure luxury from Gina K). She turned out pretty sweet looking though! I don’t use enough Real Red cardstock anyway…. I have a ton left over from Christmas. The DSP is the same sheet I keep taking scraps from that I bought 2 years ago and don’t remember where!
