True Beauty & Back Stage Fun!

Yesterday I shared the first of two swaps that I created for the Back Stage event last week. I I decided I wanted to do both a masculine and feminine card for the swaps. So today I’ll be sharing the swap I made with the True Beauty stamp set (158976).

This stamp set is perfect for feminine cards with it’s floral images and lovely font. The true watercolor look is built into the stamp so it’s soo easy to use and create a multidimensional look for any project!

This set also has a coordinating set of dies and is part of a suite of products, but for this project I wanted to keep it simple. (A late night the day before you fly out will do that lol)

Here is the card I came up with.

Sweet with a bold pop of color. Perfect for a friend! So why not check out my video tutorial and pdf for the project I have created for you? And did you know when I give you a Classic Ink item # on my pdfs I include the reinker item # for the ink pad? I always tell folks to order them together so you’ll never have a dry ink pad. Nothing more frustrating when creating, right? Something I learned the hard way when I first started stamping. Anyhow here is the the video tutorial.

True Beauty Card Tutorial PDF

And how about some pictures too – Back Stage is a special event that Stampin’ Up! holds for it’s leaders once a year. It was held in New Orleans this year some place I’d never been before, so it was exciting to see what this town was all about. We stayed in the French Quarter and after I arrived I had some time grab lunch and to explore with new friends before our Sweets & Swaps event that evening.

What a view!

Check in brought a fun swap bag filled with goodies – Stampin’ Up! always spoils us!

Swapping with 500 of your fellow leaders what could be more fun?

and of course there were sweets and entertainment too!

The next 2 days brought lots of wonderful local food, training, fun and fellowship with new and old friends.

And our final night ended with a Mardi Gras parade and party.

As always our hearts were full as we said goodbye at the end of the evening,

until next time when we gather again. Do these Stampin’ Up! events appeal to you too? Why learn more about becoming a Demonstrator and joining my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers HERE or contact me today?

You’re Awesome Vintage Tools Card Tutorial

This past weekend I was able to attend the first live Stampin’ Up! Back Stage event that was held in New Orleans after 3 ling years. It was sooo much fun seeing everyone and connecting again after so long. Of course, I wanted to participate in everything, so I started working on my swaps for the first night of the event.

Of course I wanted to share them with you too! So today’s card is the first of 2 that I designed for the swap. Today’s a masculine card that I created using the Vintage Tools stamps set that uses a color pallet right from our Regals and Neutrals collections that are perfect for the guys in our lives.

This stamp set is one of my favorites since my guys do a lot of home improvements and my son has been drawn to wood working since he could walk into Sears. One of our have to stops when out at the Mall back when he was 3! (Now, if you could only see his work shop!)

The image I used for this project also reminds me of my childhood and my father, who had to plain down the doors in our new home so they were able to close and not stick. I can remember watching the little rolls of wood falling as he shaved off the top corner and tested it each time. Odd, how such little things stick in our mind isn’t it? I couldn’t have been older than 4 as I watched him.

Want to see how I created this card? I’ve done a quick video and pdf tutorial for you.
