More OnStage Swaps & Team Gifts

I’ve got soo many great cards to share with you I’m not sure where to start – so today’s post  will be focusing on some of the cards I made during Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap again. All the sets can be found in our Annual Catalog.

This first one using the Floral Frames stamp set (146505/146508) we heat embossed the image and sentiment using White Embossing Powder and then used our Smoky Slate Blends Combo Pack (145058) to color in the images. So simple – but clearly beautiful as you can see.

And this next card uses the Friendly Expressions stamp set (146670/146673).

Done in Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green with a splatter of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) I think the combination is quite striking.

These two were my favorites from today’s cards – but here are some more great cards too.

How about this fun and vibrant card using the Varied Vases stamp set (146644) and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (146289)?

And these next two cards are made using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (146744/146747).

Or how about this one using the Hanging Garden stamp set (146236/146239) and color blocking?

And the final card today is one that uses the Enjoy Live stamp set (148190)?

Can you pick just one favorite? LOL! why not leave me a comment and let me know?

OnStage Team Goodies

And now a little more about OnStage Live in Orlando – I love making these little name tags for my team for event event, after all when there are over 6,000 of the same bag roaming around you want to make sure you can find it, right? And so here is what I came up with for this events bag tag.

Each tag had 3 special charms to commemorate the event plus a special charm that my fellow team member Sue made for the end of each.

She created such a lovely dragonfly charm for me with just wire, beads and pliers. She made it look sooo easy that I can’t wait to give it a try myself when I get a chance. Although something tells me it won’t be quite as easy as she made it look! But then that is the great part about being part of a team, we all have different strengths that we share with each other!

They really looked nice on our bags I think.

I also tried my hand at some special organizers for everyone that a fellow leader shared with me.

I love the way they turned out and the little post it holders with flags for marking our new catties!

And what can I say I was having way too much fun playing in my classroom – so everyone received a little OnStage Live Survival Kit too.

Filled with everything you might need for our 3 day event. I found this cute little list and adjusted it to my needs.

What can I say, I appreciate and value my team and the richness they bring to my life! They are truly a blessing.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful swaps and some of the display boards from OnStage too!

Dandelion Wishes

If you haven’t already you’ll want to check out the stamp set Dandelion Wishes found on page 118 of our Annual Catalog. This set is filled with simple line images and sentiments using a beautiful font.

And folks can’t get enough of this set since you can do all kinds of techniques with it. Check out these lovely cards made with the set.

This first card uses a simple masking and sponge technique to create the band of color. The dandelion and sentiment are Heat Embossed with our Black Embossing Powder for a bit of texture and shine. Stunning!

And how about this final card done in black & white with a pop of red? Classic and elegant.  The sentiment is from our Kindness & Compassion (146726/146729) another set with beautiful fonts.

And don’t you love the edge? It is our Delicate Lace Edgelits Dies (147053).
