You are going to have so much fun!!!
I like the term 'workshop' because it means something is going to get done, where 'party' sounds like come over and eat to mean. LOL
I also think, having been a Tupperware 'lady', party is associated with a sit-and-look-at-what-I-have demonstration. Just my 2 Canadian cents on the matter.
I like Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip can be used in place of black for a softer image. I use lots of Old Olive and Night of Navy and Baroque Burgundy.

Close to My Heart calls theirs "Gatherings". It's just a matter of what you prefer, though. Some demos feel "workshop" sounds too much like "work", so they like the term "party" better.

I would stick with coordinating inks to whatever cardstock you decide on getting. Part of the saleability of our products is showing how everything matches!

So, out of the soft subtles, I'd probably pick Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Pretty in Pink, Bliss Blue, and Sage Shadow.

Have fun putting your kit together! To work with Soft Subtles I like Mellow Moss, Old Olive, Plum, Amethyst, and you'll need Basic Black no matter what. One of my most used colors is Creamy Caramel, closely followed by Close to Cocoa. I also use Perfect Plum and Eggplant Envy together a lot. Whatever you choose, you'll end up needing some more REALLY soon, LOL.

Don't forget about Basic Brown! It's water-color safe, but so much softer than Basic Black.

Default Party or Workshop?

I'm not a demo, but I am a really good SU customer! My demo and group of friends use the term workshop to refer to our demo's once a month pay $5 workshops that are not hosted. For a hosted event, we call it a party which is free to guests and we hope they order lots and lots of products! My demo usually does 3-4 make and take projects for her workshops and then 2 for a hosted party. Once a year, she does a 10 for 10 where you pay $10 and make 10 projects. It is a all-day event and loads of fun!

I've stuck to the definitions that the majority of demos in my area use for workshops vs. parties. Parties are free where the hostess's guests get to do a project (or 2) and the demo shows how to do 2-4 projects. A workshop (in my area) still have hostesses, but every guest or the hostess pays $$ for everyone to make the 4-5 projects. The parties that don't have hostesses are called stamp camps. These usually have a participation fee also.

As far as ink pads, I too got soft subtles in my starter kit. I got Pretty in Pink, Lavendar Lace, Bliss Blue, Barely Banana, and Sage Shadow. Then you have the majority of colors. If you want a variation of these colors, you can just stamp off.

Then for your first order, with your 20% savings and free shipping, you can get more big pads or the spots. If you get the spots, you can then figure out which pads you use the most and slowly acquire those. That's what I do. I would also get the asst packs in all color groups and then 5 packs of solid colors. Probably the same colors as your ink.

Have a great time being a demo. It's such a great time!!!!!

My stamping buddies and I call them parties, but sometimes I call it a workshop when I'm talking to someone who might not take my hobby very seriously!

My fav SS colours are mellow moss, bliss blue, pretty in pink, barely banana, & perfect plum. (I looooooove almost amethyst & sage shadow as very close seconds)

At convention in Las Veags Shelly said " we do not do parties we do workshops" so I think SU wants us to refer to them as workshops.
