Demonstrator Only Stamp and Share Event

Getting together with other demonstrators is always fun whether it's at big events like Convention or smaller group events like our quarterly Stamp and Share event!  This past weekend it was time for our Stamp and Share and the Cowtown Crafters (our demonstrator group) had an opportunity to come together and not only share ideas, business tips and fun techniques, we also created an adorable Spooky banner.

Want to get in on the fun and ideas, too?  Check out all the benefits of becoming a Cowtown Crafter.
(Just a side note:  The name Cowtown comes from the fact that most of the founding demonstrators in this group live in Fort Worth and Fort Worth's nickname for many years was Cowtown because of all the cattle drives that came through the city.  Don't let your location stop you from joining us, though!  Our group reaches from Minnesota to Texas!)

A Few Tips for the Banner:
  • We used the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit (133507) and the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (132698) to create this banner.

  • Since the spritzer is included in the Banner Kit, I added 25 to 30 drops of Pumpkin Pie re-inker and filled it with water.  Spritzing over the stencils was super easy!  Just position the stencil on the pennant and sprtiz.

  • Another way to add color was by using a dauber and the Pumpkin Pie and/or the Summer Starfruit ink pad.  When using the daubers, it's a good idea to add a little Snail adhesive on the back side of the stencil so it won't move and shift while you're adding the color.

These live events are just another great benefit for being a part of the Cowtown Crafters group!   Even if you aren't able to attend in person, all the demonstrators in the group receive the exclusive instructions to the project(s) we create as well as business tips and event ideas.

Ready to become a Cowtown Crafter?

Demonstrator events, like this Stamp and Share event, are fantastic ways to stay inspired and connected with others!  It's just another fun benefit of being in the Cowtown Crafters group and I can't wait for you to join us!
