Sunkissed & More

Today I’ve got some more cards for you from Back Stage’s Sweets & Swaps event and I thought I’d start with a lovely tropical all occasions set from the July – December Mini Catalog, Sunkissed (159908).

This set is filled with lovely sketched images that can be used with all kinds of coloring techniques and can be teamed up with our Paradise Palms stamp set (157716) and coordinating Palms dies (157718) for even more options. Check out this card that uses our Watercolor Pencils (141709 & 149014) to add color to the stamped image.

This next card uses those same Palm Dies to create this lovely silhouette image that has been teamed up with the sentiment from Sunkissed.

Texture has been added to the back ground with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder (156505) and a bit more with the stitched edges on the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183). And take a look at this striking card that uses our Blending Brushes (153611) to create a wonderful back drop for the sentiment.

The Heron Habitat Bundle (158897) is quite striking done in the Starry Night , Bermuda Bay, and Granny Apple Green Combination. And can you see the texture behind the Deckled Rectangle Die (159173) and Stitched Rectangle Die (151820) frame that has been created with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317)?

If you haven’t noticed the Season of Chic stamp set (158810) in our Annual Catalog you might want to check it out since this Suite of products (158819) covers all four seasons in one stamp set and with it’s gold foiling it is quick striking.

These next 5 cards all use the Nature’s Prints Bundle (158801) that is one of my favorite Suites (158805) in the Annual Catalog. Not only are the sentiments done in a lovely font, but its an all occasion set with lovely images too that are perfect for all kinds of cards. This first card is soft and sweet and done in shades of Gray Granite and Blushing Bride.

This next card has an autumnal feel to it due to the color choice.

And this next one highlights 2 of our 2021-2023 In Colors Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

Want a bold look how about this one done in Sahara Sand and Blackberry Bliss?

Or a bold color block look?

Isn’t it wonderful just how you can change the feel and look simply by changing up the colors you choose? It’s one of the things I love about stamping!

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some of the holiday cards I received.

Hello Harvest & Back Stage Swapping Fun!

Today’s cards are all swaps that I received during the New Orleans Back Stage event last month. What fun I had swapping during the event. I cant wait to share them with you this week, so stop back by to see more fun swaps!

This first group of cards is made with the Hello Harvest Bundle (159644) and the Rustic Harvest Suite (159648) of products. The colors are rich and will be found in our landscape over the next few weeks as the days shorten. The yellows have already started popping up here in North Georgia.

And if you haven’t already seen the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (159847) you’ll want to be sure to check it out. I almost missed it in the Mini (page 53).

It’s been used to add texture to these first three cards.

And this next card is made with the Soft Seedlings stamp set (159905).

It’s got a fun soft look to it – water drops have been added after the leaves have been stamped using our Water Painter (151298). And this final fall card uses the die cut image from the Perched in a Tree Bundle (159799). While it is currently on back order it will be available to order again around the 26th of September, in plenty of time to start creating for the holiday season!

How about a little Halloween fun? Here are two cards made with the Best Witches (159860) and Bewitching stamp sets (159855).

The Witch Hat Builder Punch (159856) is so much fun.

Stop back by again tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more fun swaps with you!

More Maui Swaps & Pictures

Today I’ll be sharing some more of my Incentive Trip swaps with you and I hope you’ll enjoy them along with my photos from the Luau and last day at the Grand Wailea. So here we go!

This first card uses the Timeless Tulip stamp set (158327) and the Tulip Builder Punch (151295).

It’s a fun fold that teams up our New In Colors Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent. This is a great set for new stampers since it has some great sentiments and a punch.

And how about this next card using the sweet and soft Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) and the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (155834)?

It’s another fun fold.

This next card uses the Henna Hearts stamp set (155665) found on page 100 in the Annual Catalog.

The Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper (155761) with it’s foiling makes an impact on this gate fold card.

And if you like dragonflies check out this next card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (156224) and the Meadow Dies (155852).

The dragonfly just shimmers since it has been given a coating of our Clear Wink of Stella. And finally this last card uses one of our holiday bundles, Tiding & Trimmings (155716) that you can find in the Annual Catalog.

The Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718) sets the color pallet with Sahara Sand and Evening Evergreen. The Real Red Rhinestones (146924) add a lovely bit of shine to the star while the die add a texture and detail. Simply lovely!

Don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow I’ve got some great 3D swaps to share with you!

Mahalo Maui Luau & More

Our last full day in Maui was filled with friends, new and old. Stampin’ Up! gave us one last opportunity to gather as a group for a wonderful evening right off the beach.

A Quick pic with Shelli at the Maui Incentive Trip Luau

The smell of Plumeria filled the air as we mingled and gathered at our assigned seats to enjoy the evening and listen to the story of the Island.

Sunset at the Luau with my husband, Larry

My husband, Larry, loved his first Stampin’ Up! event as did our daughter who was able to join us. He told me later that I really need to earn the next Incentive Trip.

The Luau also gave us one last opportunity to wear our beautiful leis that we were given when we arrived.

I got a chance to meet 3 new stamping friends at our table.

It was a wonderful night to remember.

And this beautiful hand crafted necklace was my parting pillow gift that I found when we returned to our room that evening.

It was a trip of a lifetime and I have to say once again, thank you. I couldn’t do what I love and share what I love doing if it weren’t for you! I appreciate you and thank you again for supporting my Stampin’ Up! business and spending some time stamping with me.

If you’d like to see more photos of the Luau and my final day in Maui stop on by my facebook page where I’ll share some photos with you later today.

Maui Swaps & More

Today I wanted to share some more of the fantastic swaps that I got on the Incentive trip. This swap was an optional part of the trip and we had a choice of cards or 3d. Today’s post again is all about the cards.

And there were lots who participated, the boards were so full that not everyone’s made it on to the board, mine included. But I’ve already shared my card with you on the 18th HERE along with the video and tutorial in case you wanted to see it.

On to the swaps… This first one is bright and cheerful and perfect for the event! Magenta Madness and the In the Tropics Dies (151495). Yep, no stamping just dies were used to create this card and the bright cheerful colors make it fun.

And check out this next card which uses strips of the 2021 In Colors.

Clever, right? the strips adhered to a Basic Black card stock piece and were then die cut using the Hippo & Friends Dies (153585). The sentiment is from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set (155385) and those fun little speckles from the Clear & Contour stamp set (154994).

Another bright and cheerful card using the exclusive Host Designer Series Paper, Pattern Party (Host 155426). It works perfectly with this bold stamp set, Biggest Wish (155052).

Our White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) is perfect for this project since you can add color to the ribbon so easily! And inside is just as bright and fun, check it out.

The very popular Artistically Inked Suite is highlighted on this next card.

With all the gold foiling the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) is sure to impress.

This next card uses the fun In Symmetry stamp set (155140), Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper (155605) and new Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475).

I love the way our Champagne Rhinestones (151193) pick up the colors on the card. And it’s a fun fold too.

My last swap that I wanted to share with you today is a Slim Line Card done in our 2021 In Colors.

They look so great together! The card was quick and easy since it uses the New Flowers & Leaves Punch (155373), Heart Punch Pack (151292) and the Banners Pick a Punch (153608).

Got a favorite swap that I shared with you today? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

More Incentive Trip Highlights

I thought I’d share a few more pictures with you from the Incentive Trip. This first one is of the Maui Gold Pineapple Tour, our guide Ken was a lot of fun. I can’t tell you how sad I am that we’ve cut into our last Maui Gold pineapple. I’m trying to figure out how I can hide it from the family without feeling guilty! Ah, well I guess I’ll be sharing it is too good not to share.

These next few photos are of the Stampin’ Up! excursion – we chose snorkeling and were so glad we did. We had a lot of fun being on a catamaran for the first time and watching the sails go up. While I just love being on the water, Larry can struggle with it and experienced a bit of motion sickness.

While our cameras don’t do justice to the fish the snorkeling was fantastic and there was a lot of variety too.

We spent a lovely afternoon around the resort. Here are some more pictures of the resort – these views never get old. Early morning I think was my favorite with the pinks from the sun rise.

To end the day we enjoyed dinner with Sherrie and her husband Jeff at the Maui Brewery Co. It was nice catching up and that we got to meet each others spouses after knowing each other for years. (I always enjoy doing Sherrie’s Shoebox Swaps at our live events.)

I had the Coconut Shrimp Fried Rice Sherrie said the other demonstrators were raving about. It was soooo yummy!

Whew, so much food and I loved the presentation. If you’d like to see more of the photos that I took from the Incentive Trip stop by my facebook page and check them out.

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing more cards & the 3d swaps with you.

Hand Penned Petals & More

Today I thought I’d share some of the swaps that I received during the Maui Incentive Trip. It was a lot of fun seeing what everyone created and checking out the boards in the hospitality room.

These first cards all use the Hand Penned Petals Stamp set (155070) and the coordinating Penned Flowers Dies (155557) that are available in a bundle (155492) for 10% off. I really love the soft look of this first card.

If you love dies, then this card is right up your alley. It uses the NEW Stitched Greenery Die (155451) to create the backdrop. and the sentiment is on a shape from the Tasteful Labels Dies (152886). And if you don’t recognize it, the circle has been cut from our Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499). Just lovely.

And speaking of soft and lovely check out this next card using our Square Vellum Doilies (152484), it’s been teamed up with our Pool Party and Cinnamon Cider.

a bit of White Embossing Powder and Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack (155475) create interest and texture along with a pop of shimmer with the Genial Gems (155500) that are scattered around the focal point.

And how about this So Saffron and Misty Moonlight combination?

And for a bolder look, check out this next card.

Vellum was used again with the dies and our Stampin’ Blends give the flowers a bold pop of color.

And today here are a few more pictures for you of the Maui Incentive Trip. I couldn’t resist starting the day with the view and a cup of coffee.

Everything is decorated so lovely – including the breakfast tables. The flowers were breath taking.

Stampin’ Up! spoiled us with the hospitality room where we got to spin the wheel each day for prizes.

We had a full day planned away from the resort, so we spent the day at the local aquarium,

and ate lunch on the road in Wailuku since

we wanted to see Ioa Valley and hike a bit.

the views were breath taking. This was the Jurassic Park area of the island that you see in the movie.

And for our last stop we headed to Lahaina and a took a sunset dinner cruse which was wonderful even though Larry struggled a bit with the choppy water on the way out.

After a full day we returned back to the room to find another pillow gift on the bed. This time a matching straw bag filled with goodies! Including the upcoming July-December Catalog!!!

As you can imagine I perked up long enough to flip though it before falling into to bed. lol Don’t forget to stop on by my facebook page to see more pictures of the Maui Incentive Trip.

Sweet as a Peach

Today’s card uses one of the Suites from the Annual Catalog, It immediately drew my attention with it’s wonderful color pallet. After all I live in Georgia, so how could I resist a set great sentiments and images of peaches? We are the peach state after all.

I think you’re going to really like this Suite, so much so I’m going to be doing a class with it in August! I made today’s card for the Maui Incentive Trip card swap that I will be participating in this week. And really love the way it turned out using a simple sponging technique to create a two tone effect on the fruit and branches.

And it’s a fun fold too! So why not check out my video tutorial and see what you think?

Sweet as a Peach Joy Fold Card Video Tutorial

And of course I’ve whipped up a PDF tutorial for you with the complete supply list, measurements, and step by step directions too.

Sweet as a Peach Joy Fold Card Tutorial PDF

Pinch me… I can’t believe we’re in Maui!

And on a personal note since today is the first day of the Maui Incentive Trip I wanted to share the little package that I received last month with our travel documents.

This little package contained a Maui pin, along with our name tags, luggage tags, travel wallet with paperwork, and masks since Maui has a mask mandate still in place.

I can’t tell you how excited we are to be in Maui, courtesy of Stampin’ Up! And we wouldn’t be going if it weren’t for my amazing team, The Blue Mountain Stampers and my wonderful stampers, and customers. This will truly be a trip of a life time for us. So thank you again and stop back by, as I’ll be sharing some photos will you both here and on my facebook page with you as I’m able.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing the cute little 3D project I made for the swap with you.

Enjoy!

Team Fun at the OnStage@Home After Party

I love sharing with my team and coming home after a Stampin’ Up! event is no different. While this year we gathered virtually we still were able to gather for an After party and share the excitement of the NEW 2021 January – June Mini Catalog.

So I created these cute little flag holders using the Quite Curvy Bundle (156228) that is currently available. I just love these little sweet birds!

I used the colors from our OnStage@Home swag so everything coordinated

and was able to put the logo on the inside of these folders with the little flag sticky notes. We are going to need lots of sticky notes!!!

I also put together some little charms using some images from the stamp sets, the catalog, and logo. Each one was a bit different

but they all had one thing in common – a prize patrol number!

Things were all set up for a light lunch and an couple of hours with the team.

Of course, no team event is without stamping, so I had packets for everyone with their little team gifts waiting for them all their stamping spot.

We also had a table to share all the Product Purchase Premiere goodies – there is nothing like being able to touch and feel in person!

And of course I shared my copy of the real Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalogs that they could look at too.

We made 4 projects using new products from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure.

And of course while we stamped prize patrol numbers were called and prizes were given out!

Lots of smiling faces

Want to see our projects?

Not only did stamp together, we got to use the new Blending Brushes found in the Mini Catalog and learn a fun new technique too.

I’ll be sharing these projects with you later so stop back by to see my tutorials and videos for these projects and more!

OnStage@Home: Projects, fun & more

Last week I shared the opening day of our Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home event, as always these 3 days fly by too quickly. And while we weren’t together in person this year the chat rooms, personal messaging, and texts were fast and furious as we shared with each other.

Saturday was filled with creative presentations and break out classes. My head is still spinning with all the great information! In between we did some stamping with the Dragonfly Garden Bundle and products from the Dandy Garden Suite.

These projects were a lot of fun since they were quick and easy – Know that I’ll be sharing some tutorials with you for these cards and others for sure as we get closer to the catalog launch in January 2021!

Sara & Shelli’s closing time together is always one of the most enjoyable portions of the event for me. I love to watch the back and forth between mother and daughter it is filled with laughter and wonderful projects too.

And this OnStage@Home was no different. You could see they were clearly enjoying their time together as they shared some wonderful projects using the Fine Art Floral Suite of products which has a lot of fun elements!

I was sad to say goodbye as we wrapped up the event – but will be looking forward to sharing with my Team this Friday during our OnStage After Party!

One of the perks of attending OnStage@Home was being able to participate in a Product Purchase Premiere. Being the first to receive our copies of the Mini & Sale-a-bration brochure along with stamps and more!

I got my box today and thought I’d share some of the fun with you of the unboxing. The video is not the best angle, my Ipad which is my normal way of videoing is giving me fits and I haven’t been able to figure out why yet. Sigh… the love, hate relationship I have with it! But you’ll get the idea.

Rocking with OnStage@Home

Yesterday, I shared with you some of the fun items I gave as team gifts for the OnStage event that is in full swing and so today I thought I’d share some of the fun items I got in the mail from Stampin’ Up! While we aren’t gathering with a LIVE event Stampin’ Up! is still pampering us with great swag!

Last night we kicked off the event with a private acoustical rock concert with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo! Sooo cool!

You could feel the energy through our chat room! Good thing, my kids couldn’t see me rocking out and singing along to classics like Love is a Battlefield! They’d be so embarrassed.

We also recognized everyone’s accomplishments around the globe and several million dollar earners shared projects they created with the stamp sets they helped design that will be in the 2021 Mini. You’re going to love the variety of sets they’ve created!

During recognition last night I was recognized in 2 categories

Know, I don’t earn these on my own. I couldn’t do this without you and my team members! I can’t put into words just how much I appreciate all of my stampers who allow me to share what I love with them. I never thought my world would become so enriched when I started as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Stamping and this journey with Stampin’ Up! has allowed me to learn and grow personally along with allowing me to meet and become friends with so many people I never would have met other wise. So thank you! What a great job I have!!!

While we are missing our special event for leaders called Center Stage Stampin’ Up! has sent us this little surprise to celebrate our accomplishments. It came in this lovely little box that coordinated with our swag box.

I love the way that Stampin’ Up! presents things – the packaging is always as beautiful as the gift and message!

Underneath was a great little gift and practical since they come in different colors and with a variety of charms too making it easy to identify mine.

I have to admit at first I was a bit perplexed by the bright blue ball at the end of this scissors charm, but later learned it is to protect and hold the point of the scissors when it’s not in it’s cover. What a aha moment that was. lol!

Want to see what was in the swag box? I’m loving the bright cheerful colors!

It was filled to the brim! with all kinds of goodies Grid Paper, note books, stickers, a fun gel pen and a OnStage bag! Can you name the colors? (I’ll list the answer below for you.)

I’m thinking this bag will be perfect for a day at the beach since there is a zippered pocket on the bottom too. (Can you say Maui? A great take along for our delayed incentive trip when we get to go next May) and these cute little pins are so much fun!

Not sure if I’ll have a chance to swap them yet, but this little guy is adorable with it’s big eyes and “snail mail”. I’m thinking they’ll be a sneak peek of what’s inside the 2021 January – June Mini!

What color is the Swag Box & Bag: Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Pool Party, Pacific Point, and Granny Apple Green. The colors are soooo cheerful!!! How can you not smile?

Quite Curvy Note Pad Holder & More

Whew! The week is flying by and tonight starts the Stampin’ Up! OnStage@Home event. I’m excited about this opportunity to gather with my fellow demonstrators from around the world. It’s sure to be a jam packed 3 days as always and while it is not a live event in Salt Lake as planned originally I’m just happy that I’m able to participate this way from home. Stampin’ Up! never disappoints at these events.

I didn’t want to spoil the surprise earlier this week, but by now everyone should have received their little goodies in the mail. So….. today I thought I’d share with you a fun project that I made as a gift for my team members that will be joining me for the OnStage@Home event. I just love the Quite Curvy Bundle so I started there.

I just couldn’t resist these sweet little birds and the fact that the sentiments curve along the die cut edges! So want to see what I made?

Here you go this soft and sweet note pad holders

I’m really pleased with the way they turned out and I had some sticky notes and flags that I thought went perfectly with this project too!

So what do you think? Want to learn how to make your own? While you may not have the same little flags and sticky notes I’m sure you can find some similar sized for your projects. Or how about a sticky note and mini calendar? The options are endless and I find that one of the fun things about creating a gift like this.

I’ve put together a video tutorial for you. It’s a bit longer than my normal videos, but it shows you the how to from start to finish. And as always I’ve given you a printable PDF with a complete supply list and step by step instructions.

To go along with the note book I created a little treat bag to celebrate the event using our fun 3×9 Gusseted Cellophane Bags (151312) filled with a variety of items.
