Tea Together & more

Today’s projects were all part of this month’s Team Swaps – I love the variety of projects that my team always shares and so I wanted to share them with you too!

This first one uses the Tea Together stamp set (148779), Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (148551) that you can find in the Occasions Catalog along with our Tufted Embossing Folder (146335).

If you love this card you’ll be happy to know if you didn’t get the coordinating Tea Time Framelits Dies for FREE during Sale-a-bration, they will be available again in June since they are part of the 2019 Annual Catalog. So you can get the set now and start stamping and then get the dies later!

And do you recognize where the word love is from? It’s from our Well Written Framelits Dies (148534) If you haven’t seen this bundle of products found on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog you’ll want to check it out. It’s a wonderful set of sentiments and dies that make up endless options.

This next card uses a favorite set of mine Dandelion Wishes (146744/146747)

along with the Subtle Embossing Folder (143706) – if you don’t have this folder you’ll want it since it adds just a touch of texture to any project! The pop of Lovely Lipstick matting this focal point is lovely with the Grapefruit Grove. A combination I wouldn’t have thought of.

And how about this fun Cross Over Gate Fold Butterfly Gala (148580) card?

I love the way it opens – I can’t wait to try this fold soon –

And now for the 3d projects – I always love the fact we can create great little gifts like these with paper and ink!

Easter is right around the corner and this little kiss basket is perfect

and this little basket made with our Scallop Tag Topper Punch (133324)

Healing Hugs & More

Today’s cards are all made with the Healing Hugs stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I think this stamp set is one of my favorites with its DisInktive images and clearly I’m not alone. I’ve already shared my cards and their tutorials that I designed for Sherrie’s Shoe box Swap and clearly others love it as much as I do because I got to make these wonderful versions during the 2 shoe box events.

The first card uses the Joy Fold and is done in Blackberry Bliss and Soft Sea Foam.

This next one uses the Soft Sea Foam but instead teams it up with Highland Heather for a softer version. The Tufted Embossing Folder (146335) adds some texture to the background as well as the little touch of stamping down the sentiment piece.

The ribbon with it’s copper edging is from our Team Room Ribbon Combo Pack (146893)

And this final card uses the Bold Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss combination.

We added texture to the background using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder (144193) and fussy cut two flowers and the leaves. I love the way the pearls add a touch of elegance to this card.

Which is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

OnStage Live – Orlando

Today’s photos are the final ones I’ll be sharing with your from my OnStage experience.

Here’s a quick pic of my room mate, Tracey & I

Stampin’ Up! spoiled us completely at this event, starting with our beautiful  boxes –

which contained a lovely 30 year logo bag filled with goodies and hints of what was to come.

The areas were decorated beautifully with 30 years of memories and displays- This is the year I joined. (Wow, I’ll be celebrating my 10th Anniversary soon!)

Here is a picture of our Make n Take area.


The excitement was high as we got our first peek at the Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-bration offerings.

And of course there were lots of Prize Patrols too!!!

Over the 3 day event we stamped using the NEW Cling stamps – Yes, I said NEW Cling stamps. You’re going to love these! Starting with the Occasions Catalog Stampin’ Up! announced we will be replacing our Clear Mount Stamps with Cling stamps. The same great red rubber with with a stickier label so they’ll stick to our blocks better! Whoo hoo! (After I get to play with them a bit more I’ll do a video to share some tips on assembly and use for you.) They also told us we will no longer carry Wood Mount stamps except for Background Stamps beginning with our 2019 Annual Catalog.

3 full days packed with stamping, sharing, and making friends from around the world

I’m glad that so many of my team members made this their first OnStage Live event and got to meet Shelli Gardner.

We finished the week off with a lovely dinner together with our SINKS friends at the Copper Canyon Grill. My friend, Susan gave us this lovely gift box that holds a Take Your Pick Tool and special book mark with our initials.

Happy, tired and energized by all the exciting new products we headed home. I still can’t believe all the wonderful products that Stampin’ Up! generously gave us during this event.

My table was spilling over as I unpacked!
