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!

Sale-a-bration’s Watercolor Melon

While it is a rainy winter day here in Georgia there is a taste of spring in the air so I thought I’d share a fun set that will make us all think of those warm summer days that aren’t far off.

Watercolor Melon Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration 162962) is a photopolymer stamp set that makes the two step a breeze. The images have a fun watercolor look giving you a built in shading that makes the melon look real too.

Check out these cards to see what I mean. this first card uses simple stamping to create a fun card. Done in Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green it uses a fun angle for the sentiment.

And while this set is a sentiment set it makes it great for choosing a stamp set like the Perennial Postage Stamp set (162598) to team it up with. And this next card uses the same sweet Sweet Sorbet 1/4″ Ribbon (162558) for a little pop of texture on the watermelon that has been punched out using the Modern Oval Punch (162234)

which makes popping it up like it is on this card a snap! This next card teams up these fun images with the Basic 3D Embossing Folders (Online Exclusives 1611598) for some texture in the background and the Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper (Online Exclusives 162735).

A pop of shine has been added with the Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels (158130). You’ll love how these rhinestones pick up the colors around them. And our last card uses a fun gingham check in Blueberry Bushel from the Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (163170) for a summer time feel.

The watermelon uses a simple technique called shadow stamping. The melon was first stamped in Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink and then again in Garden Green Classic Ink. The second color is just slightly lower than the first image allowing you to see both colors. And the vines use the stamping off method to create two different shades of the Garden Green. Both area great techniques that allow you to use stretch your stamping skills and supplies!
