Occasions Hostess

Occasions Hostess

I chose Cozy Cottage for my Hostess set It’s a really lovely set which lends itself to colouring with Stampin’ Blends, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen and Aqua Painter Techniques.

It also has some lovely sentiments in the set however, today my card doesn’t have a sentiment. Now, you can only choose a Hostess set if you are a Hostess!

You can start earning Hostess rewards once your party or workshop sales reach A$250  but there’s even more once your workshop sales Reach A$450 – you get an extra A$40 to spend as Hostess Rewards. So that’s a total of A$95 in Hostess benefits instead of the usual $45. So click the image above and book your party/workshop today with me.

Occasions Hostess Close Up:

Here’s a closer look at the coloured cottage. I used Stampin’ Blends with Basic Gray Archival Safe Ink to stamp the images. I dis all of this with the largest of the Lots of Labels Framelit Dies laying on the Thick Whisper White card as a guide.
