Remarkable You

Here are three great cards that I wanted to share with you. All of the use the Remarkable You stamp set (139891/139894). Each of theme while using the same stamp set have a completely different feel.

This first one is soft and subtle. Char used the Aqua Painter Beach Technique to remove the color from the lilies before adding some soft color with our Stampin’ Write Markers.

And did you notice the little Elegant Butterfly (127526)?  This  vellum butterfly was stamped in Daffodil Delight using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (132058/123759) and then punched out. It adds a bit of dimension since it looks like the butterfly just landed next to the greeting.

This next card a a bolder feel to it since the colors used are Watermelon Wonder and Mossy Meadow.

And finally this card is done in Tempting Turquoise, which always makes me smile. Nancy used White Embossing Powder to make her flower pop and then added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds to it’s petals.

On Stage – Tampa

Last weekend I was able to attend the first On Stage Event that Stampin’ Up! held in Tampa, Florida.

On Friday I was able to participate in a shoe box swap with friends and I’ll be sharing some of these great cards with you in the upcoming weeks.

Sherrie's Shoebox Swap 2015 OnStage Tampa

I was so excited to see what the new format for our Demonstrator Events would be like. While the Main Stage was in Brussels, there were 6 different regional events being held at the same time here in the United States and that was in addition to those held in other countries. All total there were more Demonstrators gathered together at one time than in ever before – and the energy was high.

When we entered the ballroom we were greeted by tables filled with new goodies!

The tables were decorated with Blackberry Bliss table cloths and the theme of one of the new suites, Going Places from the 2016 Occasions Catalog was highlighted in all the goodies on the table.

Of course, no Stampin’ Up! event would be complete without a Prize Patrol!

After all who can resist a new stamp set!!! I can’t wait to try out this new set it’s definitely a must have so I was thrilled when I won it!!!

I enjoyed spending time with my fellow team mate JoAnn who joined me in Tampa

And the SINKS team members, my extended family.

It was a great day together and while I had  lot of fun sharing, laughing and stamping together,  getting the first peek at the upcoming Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure was the high light! (I can’t wait to share a sneak peek with you with my Prize Patrol set during the Coffee & Cards Buffet in December! Watch for more information coming your way soon!!!)

After the great day we had together we continued the fun with dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse.

What fun, spending time with new and old friends and sharing our favorite moments of the day’s presentation and training.

Oops…. I almost forgot to share with you some of the fun pillow gifts I made for my roommate.

With all that sharing we do I love to jot notes down since I can never remember it all – so I made a notepad set with pen and binder clip for holding all those goodies together

On Stage Tampa 2015 notebook set

I used the Project Life Remember This stamp set (135786) since I love this sentiment and of course the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper (138187) and  Pacific Point 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (138427).

We receive a special event bag to hold all our goodies in so a name tag is always helpful to identify ours from the rest! After all 398 of the same bags in one place….well you get the idea.

And for my fellow Team members and travel companion I made this cute little domed box.

It held some chocolate, pen, binder clip and of course flags so we could mark all those wonderful must have stamp sets!

The next day was an early morning wake up and off to the airport to head home –

Of course, I made sure I had my new catties on the plane with me – ready to settle in and dream! I think this is the best Occasions and Sale-a-bration yet!

Oh my gosh, can you believe all these goodies I brought home with me!!! Stampin’ Up! pampers us at these events. I LOVE being a Demonstrator – and I love the fact that I get to order and preview items before they go live!

Hot Diggity Dog! On Stage – Tampa

This past Saturday I was able to get together with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators in Tampa for an On Stage presentation by Stampin’ Up! What can I say I love these events, after all what could be better than getting together with others who love stamping as much as you do?

Today’s card is another one that uses the Folded Frame Technique that I shared with you on Friday. Click HERE to see my Folded Frame Video Tutorial.  I designed this card for the On Stage event so I could do some swapping on the floor before it started and I got some great cards in return that I look forward to sharing with you over the next few weeks.

Folded Frames Tutorial & On Stage

As I’m typing this up I’m  getting ready for my Shoe box swap and the first ever Stampin’ Up! On Stage event. Whoo hoo! There isn’t anything I enjoy more than getting together with other stampers and stamping. And this event is sure to be a ton of fun!

Would you like to see what I’ll be sharing at my Shoe box Swap? This card highlights the Folded Frame technique and while it looks difficult it really isn’t – which is always the type of technique I love!

From Land to Sea Folded Frame OnStage Sherrie Shoebox Swap 2015

This card was created using our From Land to Sea stamp set (138720/139361) found on page 83 in the Annual Catalog. I love anything water and turtles so that is where I started when creating this card. (Remember those pet turtles that we had and the little plastic dish with the palm tree to keep them in? Oops I’m probably dating myself, oh well my love affair with turtles started with my first pet turtle.)

Want to know how I made this Folded Frame? Well you’re in luck – I’ve done a quick video tutorial on Folded Frames for you so you can make them too!

So what do you think? Why not give it a try and create your own Folded Frame out of your favorite Designer Series Paper?
