More #OnStage fun and swaps

Today I’m sharing some of my swaps from #OnStage Houston using the Pets & More (Online Exclusive 163607) a set filled with fun animal images.

This set is a reversable set that allows you to use the both the back side and the detailed front side too. Check out these lovely cards using the set.

This first card teams up the set with the Doggone Friendly Stamp (162729) using it as a backdrop highlighting this pooch.

The sentiment comes from the Sweetly Scripted Stamp set (Online Exclusive 163600). A few of our Adhesive Backed Solid Gems (Retiring 161300) add a bit of texture . And next we have this fun little card with a cut out

that was created with the Modern Oval Punch (162234). The pup has been stamped in Pecan Pie Classic Ink and uses the stamp off method to create different shades. A bit of Linen Thread (104199) as been used to create some interest along with the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161640).

And for the last card today here is a bright and cheerful card using a little Basic Rhinestones Jewels (144220) to add some bling to the colar.

After all Rhinestones make everything sparkle!

I think if you are a animal lover, you’ll love this set with it’s choices. And as someone who has just added 2 babies to our family I know it is a hit here in our house! Here is a picture of our pups Kona and Hana after their first official grooming at 6 months. The little one, Hana didn’t leave Kona’s bows alone long. lol

OnStage Houston was a lot of fun, yesterday I shared what we did the first day of the event, so today I thought I’d share a bit more. Of course the there was a lot of excitement as we got a copy of the 2024 Annual Catalog and our first peek inside the covers!

Swaps and swap boards are always a highlight of any Stampin’ Up! event.

And there were a lot of boards to get inspiration from

At lunch we got to play with some of our new products that are part of the quick & easy options from the new 2024 Annual catalog. A great new stamp sentiment set, Simply Said (163756) and our new Calming Creek Cards & Envelopes (163753), Labels & Layers (163764), and Fully Flowering Ephemera Packs (163762).

In addition we had an evening event to celebrate our achievements

and had a prize patrol for all attendees. The evening also

included some treats and a fun party afterwards – here was a view from our room. My husband was wondering what in the world was going on with all those flashing lights!

It was a full day to be sure with a lot of sharing, learning, and fun!

Doggone Friendly

Do you love dogs? I know I do. I can’t remember a time that a dog wasn’t apart of our family someone we loved. From my first little pup at age 4 to our two current little babies, dogs hold a special place in my heart. So when I saw the Doggone Friendly Stamp (162729) I knew it would be part of my shopping list.

Today I’m going to share some fun cards from my swap that use this stamp in different ways. I like the fact that this stamp has it all and we can highlight one or all of our sweet faces! This first card does just that.

The card front was stamped in Pebbled Path and then circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) was used to cut out the image desired. The pup has been colored and highlighted and then layered onto a larger circle of Misty Moonlight. This layered shape covers the hole that was created. And how about this next card that uses a quick pop of color on their bandanas with our Stampin’ Blends to draw your eye?

The sentiment has been stamped in the fun Tahitian Tide and punched out and layered with the Double Oval Punch (154242) and a bit of shine has been added with the Tahitian Tide 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon (159197).

And this last card is a fun fold

It uses not only the stamp set but our More Dazzle Specialty Paper (161749), Natural 1/4″ Wavy Trim (161517), and Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (161503) to create tons of texture. Open it and you’ve got two additional panels with those adorable little faces.

This stamped image was stamped Pecan Pie once and then cut into three sections at 1 1/2″, 2 1/8″ to decorate the panels. So simple but it packs a wow in shades of brown.

Three cards, three totally different looks! It’s one of my favorite things about paper crafting, while we start with the same supplies we can create a project that is our.

On a personal note I thought I’d share a quick pic of my pups. Kona and Hana who are now 21 weeks old and just got their first grooming.

We named them after two towns we were able to visit on vacation recently. They are such sweet little faces, don’t you think? Why not leave me a comment and tell me what kind of pup you have?
