Onstage Swap Cards

November 19th, 2018 by SMKal

I loved all the beautiful swaps I received from demonstrators at OnStage!

How amazing are all these cards?  Last week I had the wonderful privilege of attending OnStage in Orlando, Florida to celebrate StampinUp’s 30th Anniversary!  I believe there were over 6,000 Demonstrators there, from around the world.  StampinUp spoiled us with so many wonderful gifts and free stamp sets – I’ll share those with you next time.

I will highlight some of my favorite swaps I received in the coming weeks.  But for now, let me share with you one the two designs I created to share with my fellow demonstrators.

Miss You – Swap #1:

Here is my first swap – I used the Hand Delivered Stamp Set which is a lot of fun because the girl can be holding a sign (as I did), or balloons, a tall cake, or a stack of books.  It’s a photopolymer set so you can easily line up the 2-Step Stampin images.  She’s in the very back of the annual catalog, on page 229 – a Host Set.  If you are not familiar with Host Sets, these are items you can purchase only with Host Rewards, meaning for orders over $150.  So if you have a large wish list, or a group of friends that order together, or if you would like me to come by and teach a stamp class at your house with your friends, you can earn Host Rewards.  You’ll see more information about Host Rewards here.

I only made about 35 of each design, but you can see the process here.  I always design one start to finish, then break it down into steps and complete the others in assembly line fashion.

You can see here that I first cut all my cardstock, then assembled the base.  Next I did all my stamping, and lastly I cut out the signs, assembled, added dimensionals on the accent pieces, and finished with embellishments.

 

Here are the rest of the supplies used on this card.

Sending Well Wishes

September 24th, 2018 by SMKal

The lovely Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set made it’s debut in this year’s Annual Catalog (see page 118) and it quickly be came a favorite of mine.

Dandelion Wishes to send Well Wishes

The base of my card is the retired color Marina Mist card stock.  As StampinUp Demonstrators, we tend to shy away from posting projects with retired products, but if you are anything like me, these products don’t magically disappear from your stamp supplies when they retire.  We still love them and enjoy using them.  So, I trust you’ll forgive me if I occasionally use a retired product or two – as long as I identify it as such.

You will note that the Balmy Blue ink I used to stamp my sentiment is a very close match – enough so that if I had not mentioned it – I wonder if you would have noticed they are not the same color!  🙂

For the sentiment I used the very versatile and must have framelits called Stitched Shapes.  This set of 12 dies (4 each of circles, ovals and squares) each have a stitched outline detail that adds so much to your projects.

At the bottom of my card I used a strip of the Garden Impression Designer Series Paper (a very convenient 6×6 stack of 48 sheets).  The Night of Navy mat behind the dandelion ties in with this paper nicely.

A fairly simple card, here are the products used, with links to purchase from my online store:
