Happy National Get to Know You Customers Day! You may have never heard of this day before, but yes it does exist. It’s the perfect excuse – as if you need one – to share your stories with others.
As customers, we encourage you to build a relationship with your Journey Coach. If your family member is expecting and you know you will be planning a baby shower soon let your Coach know. He / she can point you in the direction of super adorable products and inspiration for the occasion. Maybe there’s a crafting technique you are daring to try. Let your Journey Coach know. Our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog is full of so many fun things. You may never truly see it all just flipping through. Your Journey Coach can help highlight the products you might be most interested in.
Take our Liquid Colors for example. These new coloring tools are great to give your projects a completely different look. Liquid Colors are dye-based liquids versus our True Color Fusion Inks. You may not be familiar quite yet with how to use them. During our RG Presents: Journey Holidays event many asked how they were different from our Splashes and Re-inkers.
Richard helped by explaining the following:
Our Splashes will give you more of a brush with a bit of a shimmer look to them. The shimmer in the Splashes won’t transition as well against certain surfaces. Liquid Color on the other hand will be very smooth, bold and vibrant across your surface. Our True Color Fusion Inks and Re-inkers will give you that brush of pigment, but it won’t allow you to move that color a whole lot.
Let’s play with our Liquid Colors a bit to create this Tell Stories Card.
Collect our Liquid Colors. You can grab all 12 colors – that coordinate with our exclusive FSJ color family – or each of your favorite individual colors.
For our rainbow-ish background we have Candy Apple, Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash and Lovely Blue Liquid Colors. Add your colors on a workable surface. This could be a Clear Block. Fun tip: You could even use the plastic sheet that comes with your stamp sets as they are non-porous. Mix the colors with a Brayer. For this background we waited until the water dots began to form. Then place your cardstock panel into the color.
With your background complete, add your stamp set and sentiment. We felt our Tell Stories Stamp Set was perfect for today’s Get to Know Your Customer Day. Since your Liquid Colors already on hand, use them to color in your stamped images.
The best part about sharing your stories – you can grow your friends and personal relationships!
