Today was my very first team rewards get together, once each quarter I am inviting my top 4 downline over for a fun get together! For the first quarter of the 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! year (October-December 2016) I had four ladies who earned points for this special invitation. Amye, Lisa, Sharon, and Kim were invited over for breakfast and a stamping get together today. (unfortunately Kim got sick and couldn’t make it).
I made a bacon egg and cheese quiche and also a seafood mozzarella quiche, fruit salad, mini bagels and muffins, and had OJ and sparkling pear juice.
Then we got to work creating a beautiful vertical succulent wall hanging.
Amye had shared a photo of a vertical garden made a few years ago by a demonstrator named Rachel, with old Stampin’ Up! product. I updated it with our current ‘oh so succulent bundle’, some Spanish moss and the detailed dragonfly thinlits.
Here is a close-up of the dragonfly, we used three markers: pool party, rich razzleberry, and cucumber crush to color the dragonfly, deluted it with an aqua painter, and then when it was dry applied wink of Stella across the top. I use the solid image to just cut out a dragonfly with our vellum card stock to layer underneath the detailed die cut out.
Here is a photo of just putting the hens and chickens (as I like to call them)…. the succulents were made with always artichoke card stock and sponged with rich razzleberry ink.
The small flowers were made with the petite petal punch and a pansy punch using sweet sugarplum card stock, and I distressed it with rich razzleberry ink.
Here are the girls with their creations:
The frames are an 8 x 10″ distressed frame, I used very vanilla card stock over the glass, and hot glued the Spanish moss directly onto the card stock.
The girls and I had a lovely time this morning and I’m so glad that I finally took the leap to plan this new reward for my team. They are doing such an awesome job and I am so proud of each one of them! This quarterly WTG day is on top of our monthly Stampin’ Up! get together at my house. We sure have a lot of fun, laughs, stamping, swapping, and eating too!
