OnStage Display Boards & More

It’s Thanksgiving today which means a variety of actives for us – so today’s post will be a quick one that is filled with lots of photos for you.

As I sit here thinking about the past year and everything that I am thankful for in my life I must include YOU, my stamping friends. So THANK YOU for all your friendship and support over the past year. I appreciate it more than I can say. Thank You for your patience as I’ve recovered from my ruptured disks and have grappled with my inability to do my normal every day things. Thank YOU for making my life richer, fuller and happier – YOU will be one of the blessings I will be counting today. And of course Thank you for allowing me to share my passion for stamping with you!

So on to some photos to inspire us – one of my favorite parts of OnStage is the sharing of our stamping ideas so there are tons of inspiration! Here are just a few of the boards.

These first two cards use the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (146840). Our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (144106) make these dies so quick and easy to use!

The Time for Tea Suite of products found on page 14 & 15 of the Annual Catalog were used for this card. If you love this suite I’ve got a class coming up in December. Why not Check out my Calendar of Events? You can sign up today, get the Bundle and the class is FREE!

Love the images from the Spirited Snowman stamp set (148075/148072) found in the Holiday Catalog teamed up with the Buffalo Check (147797/147794).

And who doesn’t love this cute little hedgehog made with the Painted Harvest stamp set (144783).

How about this bright card made with Friendly Conversations (146738/146741)?

I love simplicity of this card made with the Rooted in Nature set (146479/146482)

And aren’t these paper trees cute?

I had to go looking for this cute little guy – He is from the Best Bunny stamp set (147136) which has a coordinating punch.

And finally this card was made with our Host Set, Hand Delivered (146808) I love the way the Happy Birthday Thinlits (143700) and the eclipse technique were used.

Whew! Inspired?  Now how about some shoe box swaps? The house is still quiet, lol!

I really love this One Wild Ride (141721/141724) card done in Blueberry Bushel

And the Love What You Do suite of products were used for this card.

Here’s another card made with the Best Bunny stamp set- this time it’s for baby. Done in Soft Sea Foam, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.

A shaker card made with the Sea of Texture stamp set (146485/146488). This card was so much fun to make with it’s beads (146337).

And a couple of card made with the Animal Outing stamp set (146597/146600)  to finish off today’s cards.

Just a little bit of news from Stampin’ Up! to finish things up

Painted Harvest Thank You Cards

Each month I stamp a special Thank You card for everyone who places an order with me and so today I thought I’d share the one I made for October.

This set is an oldie but goodie and I love the ease of working with these images. The set itself is a 2 Step set which means it gives you lots of options for color combinations. And this set is a bit special, since when you line of the mark that is shown to you on the sheet you get this beautiful image, turn it a bit and you’ll get a fuller flower. So much fun to play with and try different combinations!

The layout for this card was inspired by our Demonstrator Stampin’ Success Magazine that we get each quarter with tons of ideas and tips. I loved the color combination of the Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink.

I’ve typed up a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too.
