#OnStage & Swapping fun!

Wow, I just got back from another fun Stampin’ Up! event in Jacksonville and as usual it was a blast! It’s definitely wonderful to gather again after so long and the energy was high, even with having to drive through the tropical rains of the hurricane as I went south. lol You never know what weather will bring here in the south.

Anyhow, I thought I’d start by sharing some of the fun swaps that I received over the next couple of days from my fellow stampers. The selection covered a wide range and it’s always sooo much fun to see what everyone creates. I’m going to start with the 3d items, as they are what drew me to stamping in the first place.

This first one is so clever for the fall and thanksgiving

And speaking of fall here is a lovely card made with the Hello Harvest Bundle.

And this next one uses the Very Best Occasions and our sweet little Bells embellishments (159980)

along with a card using the same set.

And these next 2 cards use the Santa’s Delivery Bundle

The belly band on this card when removed reveals a fun fold card.

And how about some cards made with the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle?

And my final card today uses the Christmas Banners Bundle

Wow, right? That’s it for today, why not leave me a comment and let me know your favorite? Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more from OnStage with you!

In the Moment Masking Technique Card Tutorial

I’m off to the Stampin’ Up! event #OnStage in Jacksonville and am excited to be able to gather with other Demonstrators a live event. So in preparation for another fun Stampin’ Up! event I’ve create this card to swap while I’m there.

This card uses the simple masking technique to create a monochromatic image as it’s focal point. I really like how it turned out. The Blending Brush gives it a soft subtle edge and creates a nice contrast to the bold colors behind it.

Want to see how I made it? I’ve created a Video Tutorial for you and also a PDF with the complete supply list, measurement, and step by step instructions.

Peace to You

The nativity image in all it’s simplicity is always a lovely image for our holiday cards.

Traditional images of Christmas, always bring holiday memories and the meaning of the season home. The Peace to You stamp set (159776) gives that and more with its lovely sentiments. Here are three lovely cards made with the set, these first two are done in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent.

This first card uses Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder (159831) to add some texture to the background.

The fun fold on this nativity scene allows it to stand and be displayed making it a little extra special. And this final card is done in Night of Navy and Silver Foil.

Simple and elegant. I think you’ll enjoy the Peace to You stamp set (159776) for your Christmas Crafting needs.

Want a rich elegant Suite of products for your holiday crafting? If so you’ll want to check out the Lights Aglow Suite (159556). It’s filled with rich colors, metallic shimmer and 2 great bundles for your stamping needs.

Today I’m going to share some cards that have made using products from this Suite with you. These first 2 cards use the bold evergreen image from the Christmas Lights Bundle (159961) as their focal point.

They also team up the Double Oval Punch (154242) making the sentiments quick and easy to do. Since the Christmas Lights Bundle contains images only, it’s easy to use your favorite sentiment set, and basic punch shapes like this are always wonderful to have in your crafting supplies and are great for the beginning stamper too. These next cards use the beautiful sentiments from the Brightest Glow Bundle (159552).

You’re going to love the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper (159535). The 6×6 size makes it perfect for quick and easy cards and the gold accents are lovely.

These last two cards use this bundle and other papers from the Mini Catalog. As you can see these sentiments and label dies have tons of uses for your crafting this fall.

All Bundled Up

Cute little forest creatures make up this fun stamp set for the holidays.

The All Bundled Up stamp set (159824) is sure to bring smiles to the receipents face, after all who can resist a cute little forest creature? Check out these cards made using the set teamed up with other products from our Mini. I just love the fun tassel on this guys hat – our In Color Metallic Woven Ribbon (159196) has a knot in the center and then the ends have been frayed.

This fun card has added color to the images using a fun technique called Damp Tipped Watercolor pen ink painting. The technique gives a more textured look. It also added a bit of shimmer with the Clear Wink of Stella. Can you see the shimmer on the hat and scarf?

And how about this next card done in blues?

The Adhesive Backed Stars (159965) add a bit of iridescent shine and are beautiful in person. And finally a card with the cute little racoon.

Watercolor Pencils were used to give him a soft feel and the lovely Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon (159555) adds a bit of shimmer and shine to the project. And this ribbon is a dream to work with since it picks up the colors from the project you are working on and ties beautifully.

So what do you think? Which card is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know, then stop by my Online Store and check it out today?
