OnStage Swaps – Heartfelt Hexagon

today’s cards all use the Heartfelt Hexagon stamp set (162882) and it’s coordinating punch the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch (162888).

This first card uses our retiring 2022-2024 In Colors and simple stamping to create a lovely birthday card.

And the bit of Linen Thread (104199) tied in a bow adds a nice little bit of texture. This next card uses the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161640) to set the tone.

The Starry Sky 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon (Retiring 159198) and Tinsel Gems Three Pack (161624) add a bit of shimmer to the sentiment punched out with the Lasting Label Punch (Retiring 158651) for a little different look.

These next three cards use the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder (162935) to create a subtle background for the sentiments. This first card is done in Sweet Sorbet and uses a strip of Gold Foil Sheets (132622).

While this next card teams the gold foil up with Very Vanilla and the Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon (Retiring 159555) for a very elegant look.

And finally a monochromatic card done in Azure Afternoon and Starry Sky

A bit of the 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack (Retiring 161635) adds a pot of texture and shimmer with it’s stitched edge.

And on a fun note – I received my package from the Product Purchase Premiere from #OnStage Houston and am sharing my sneak peek video with you today.

#OnStage Fun & More

Today I’ve got some more swaps to share with you that I got during OnStage in Houston. It’s a variety of sets and dies that were used to create the floral inspired cards that I’ll be sharing today, so there is a little bit of everything.

This first card using the Circle Sayings Stamp set (Retiring 161348) for it’s sentiment and the fun Shutter Card Technique

The lovely Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161192) is surrounded by our lovely Fresh Freesia strips. And this next card is the Gorgeously Made Bundle (161203)

And this next one uses some beautiful Stampin’ Blends and gold embossing powder to create a striking card.

The Enduring Beauty Bundle (162674), Distressed Gold Specialty Paper (Retiring 159237), Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder (161600), and Adhesive Backed Dragonfly & Birds (Online Exclusive 162743).

And how about quick and easy? This next card using the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper (161289) and Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder (162927)

creates a striking card. A bit of color added with the Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends adds some color to the sentiment and some texture has been added behind it with the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim (161637) and Adhesive Backed Solid Gems (Retiring 161300). The last two cards today use the Cheerful Daisies stamp set (161290).

This first card uses simple stamping and this final one uses a quick and simple Faux Tile Technique. What’s that? It’s a simple grid of 1 inch squares created with your Score Board.

And now a little bit about OnStage Houston. Stampin’ Up! displays are always the best, bright, colorful, tons of texture, and of course new products. A winning combination for sure. During our mid day lunch we were also given time in the Product Playground which was filled with lots of displays and information including the two new kits that will be released on April 2nd. I think you’re going to love them, stay tuned for more information when they go live!

Here I am in front of our new In Color Glitter Paper display – wow you’re going to love this paper!

Ribbon, touch feel and tie – the new ribbon is lovely.

And how about some color combos?

Display boards for projects shared with us during presentations that were filled with creative inspiration and highlighted some of the new products.

During this event Leaders that attended also had a VIP lounge

that was filled with goodies and treats during the morning and afternoon. Even these fun logo refillable cups – perfect for coffee or tea on the go for the event which is always a hit!

What a great treat to be able to stop by, pick up something, or visit with others in a quiet area. Can you say feeling pampered? OnStage this year was fantastic!

If this is something you think you may enjoy why not join my team and join me next year in Raleigh?

#OnStage Houston and more

Whew. I’m catching back up after returning from Houston and the fantastic Stampin’ Up! event there. So today I thought I’d share some photos and some of the swaps I received during the event.

Stampin’ Up! outdid themselves with this event and the excitement was high – it’s been along time since we have been able to gather like this. My husband, Larry joined me for this event since we have family in Houston and would spend some time with them after.

Yep, that’s my cutie enjoying a bit of lazy river time on top of the Marriott with myself and other demonstrators before check in time for the event. He seemed to enjoy the energy that surrounded him and I had a hard time getting him to give me back my bag as I got ready for the General Session to start. Check out the goodies our Summer Splash trimmed backpack was filled with. A fun crafting bag tucks in the bottom and slides out through the pocket and a coordinating pencil “cup” bag in our new In Color Pretty in Pink.

A wonderful beginning for sure where I had a lovely opportunity to connect with some new stamping friends. A quick dinner at the Saltgrass Steak House with some yummy food

and then on to After Hours and some on hand stamping fun with new products from the 2024 Annual Catalog!

Hundreds of us filled the space for an full evening of stamping, laughter, and fun. Everyone was excited to see the new products and In Colors! They sure didn’t disappoint. I choose one of the Bundles, Spotlight on Nature (163579) that was offered since it has some great images and basic shape dies.

I’m looking forward to sharing these projects and more with you soon. Along with more photos from the event throughout this week.

Now how about some swaps? I thought I’d share of my Easter swaps with you since it is right around the corner. There were some really cute projects swapped for Easter here are a few that I received.

This first one is a fun little 3d treat holder that uses the Diaper Fold.

This little treat uses our Excellent Eggs Bundle (Retiring 162808) and our Subtles Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161644). And this soft and sweet card also uses the Excellent Eggs Dies (Retiring 162807) in the background for the little bunny but has a totally different feel to it.

The sentiment has been punched out using the Double Oval Punch (Retiring 154242) and the sweet little bow was created using the 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack (Retiring 161635). Sweet, right?

And finally a bright and cheerful card using the Easter Bunny Stamp set (Retiring 160272) and Easter Bunny Punch (Retiring 160331).

Isn’t the little pompom adorable for the tail? Colored with Crumb Cake Blends to pull in the dry embossed background using the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder (160580) and cheerful Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (Retiring 163170). The Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) were used to cut both the opening for the bunny and sentiment.

That’s it for the day. Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more photos and swaps with you.
