Stampin’ Up! OnStage Swaps

What a great time we had at OnStage over the weekend in Vancouver, BC.  Over 300 people were in attendance from across Canada and US.

onstage-2016-my-teamOne of the fun part of OnStage is the swaps!   It started as we were waiting in line to head into the conference room and I received so many beautiful cards.  One of the stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue that I’ve grown to love is the Christmas Pines (it’s on sale until the end of November) and the co-ordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  Please note:  Only the stamp set is on sale.

Here are some of the swaps using this beautiful set.  There is no name on the back so I don’t know who I got it from but it’s a beautiful card.

Here’s another with no name on it. Very pretty.

onstage-2016-swaps-christmas-pines-full-cardWhile I do have the Christmas Pines/Pretty Pines Bundle, I haven’t even opened it yet!  So my swap was made using the Hang Your Stocking bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Project Life Hello Lovely

On page 163 of the Annual Catalogue is the Project Life Hello Love Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  The Accessory Pack includes a stamp set that you can use with the cards.  I only just had a chance to open this up and I love it!

The card collection comes with 100 cards!!!   2 each of 50 double sided designed in 3 sizes – 3″ x 4″, 4″ x 4″, 4″ x 6″.   So easy to make into quick cards and here’s a couple I made yesterday – so fast and so beautiful!

For this card, I chose a 4″ x 6″ card, trimmed it down and layered onto a piece of So Saffron and attached to a Basic Black card.  The sentiment is from Tin of Cards stamped in Calypso Coral and a few Calypso Coral dots added to complete the card.

I love this next one and again the only thing that was stamped is the sentiment.  I used Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers to ink up the image from Suite Sayings, stamped it on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Punch and popped it up with dimensionals over the Calypso Coral twine.

Swirly Bird Bundle

This is a fabulous bundle as you can make beautiful floral images to adorable baby cards.  The bonus is in the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in this bundle as you get this nice “scroll” in them.

I used the scroll in today’s card.  I started with a card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  On the front panel of the card, I cut it at 2 3/4″ from the top fold, and then cut off a 1 1/2″ piece.

Swirly Bird Melon
The layering pieces of Melon Mambo is cut at 4″ x 2 1/2″ and 4″ x 1 1/4″ with the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP pieces cut at 3 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ and 3 7/8″ x 1 1/8″.

The Basic Black scroll piece from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits is trimmed to 4 1/2″.   You next place the small front panel piece flush with the bottom of back panel of the card and then adhere the scroll to the front of the card with adhesive to the top piece and bottom piece.

I added Melon Membo flowers, highlighted with a bit of Clear Wink of Stella,  to the front of the scroll  On the inside panel of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings in Memento Black ink  to show through the opening of the card and colored the leaf with a Melon Mambo Marker.

Botanical Blooms

I don’t recall making so many cards using a stamp set as much as Botanical Blooms.  I love how we have the co-ordinating DSP but you can use it with all the colors in our color collections.

Here is one we made at a recent class.

Botanical Blooms PinkThe flourish background is from Timeless Textures stamped in Smoky Slate.  A fabulous stamp set very much like Gorgeous Grunge with lots of textured images for background stamping.
