NATURE’S POEM SUITE FOR ONSTAGE MAKE!

Here is another card we made at Onstage last month using the Nature’s Poem Suite.  If you like the Lovely As A Tree stamp set you will LOVE this! Lots of nice trees and leaves.  Great for masculine cards.  I can show you more with the set later but for now you can see the card.

The Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is just lovely.  What about those little Leaves Trickets?  There are 2 different shape leaves in the set and they come in Copper and Silver.  You can also get the Thick Twine in a set.  This colour is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove.

Hope you like it.

SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE FRIEND CARD!

Last month we had the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event.  I am sure you have read lots about that already.  I realised I hadn’t show you the cards we made.  They are with products from the upcoming catalogue.  Lots of gorgeous stuff! So I have this card for you today.  And this is using the lovely paper and stamps from the Share What You Love suite that is now available this month.

The gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (that has a beautiful shine to it), the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry ribbon, the Pearlized Doilies that have a nice soft shine to them and of course the Love What You Do stamp set.  Notice the little pearls.  They are the Artisan Pearls and are really lovely too. They come in a mixed pack with Rich Razzleberry, Grapefruit Grove and Tranquil Tide colours.

I will bring you some of the other cards next post.

ONSTAGE SWAPS IN RETURN!

I showed you my swap card I made for Onstage a couple of posts back.  If you missed it then just head back 2 posts.  Today I thought I would show you my swaps I received in return.  I only made about 30 so just have a small number.  It’s great swapping with other demonstrators to get new ideas and different ways of using a stamp set.  You might like to see them.

Cards with Backgrounds.

These cards are created with either lovely paper (The Painted with Love Specialty DSP) or with a stamped background.  The bottom left card uses the Texture Embossing Paste. The bottom right has a watercolour wash. Then you have a lovely scene using the Waterfront set.

Piggies and Birds

These are cute. 🙂

Flowers

So many variations.

Banners and Greetings

Add a sentiment and a little background.  The bottom left card is a Baby Wipe technique like I used on my swap card.

3D

Some fun fold card and treat holders and other special pieces.

I hope you liked to see these.  It’s always good to share new ideas.

Thanks to everyone who swapped with me.

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

STAMPIN’ UP! ONSTAGE SYDNEY!

As you might have heard, the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event was last weekend and I went to Onstage in Sydney. For my interstate and overseas visitors I thought I should first show you the fantastic location that our event was held at.  We have such a beautiful harbour and it was such a lovely Autumn day (well you could have thought it was Summer!).

Under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Opera House.  Just happened to catch a ferry in the photo too. 🙂

This year Stampin’ Up! celebrate their 30th Anniversary.  Of course with a birthday there must be cupcakes. Yummy!

There was some creating  at the event of course.  This was our table.

It was great to have 2 of my JEN’s INK team members at Sydney with me.  I hope more can come next time.

We had Sara (CEO of Stampin’ Up!) with us in Sydney which was lovely and there were a number of fantastic presenters.  (I wish I was that clever!).  Lots of new ideas to think on.

Throughout the day there were a number of Video recordings shown.  This one with Sara and her mum Shelli was quite entertaining as they showed a number of projects with new products.  With the lighting it was hard to catch good photos of the projects they made.  (sorry about that.  Maybe it had something to do with a new phone too. 😉 )

I showed you my swap card using the Petal Palette bundle in the previous post. This is it below if you missed it.  I have just managed to take photos of all the swaps I received in return.  I will sort them and show you them in a later post.

I will show you this though. I call them my Onstage Survival Kits. They had a teabag, chocolate and post-it notes. It had a little tag using the Petal Palette set. These were for a few of my stamping buddies.

I will be back again soon so stop by and visit.  If you went to Onstage drop me a comment and tell me which one you went to.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #21- BABY WIPE PETAL PALETTE SWAP CARD FOR ONSTAGE!

I will tell you more about Onstage shortly but I thought since it is Wednesday.  It is time for Wednesday’s WOW! #21.

This card was my swap for Onstage in Sydney.  I thought I would share this with you today and show you how I created it.

This is made with the Baby Wipe Technique.  I had wanted to try this technique for some time and was reminded about it recently.

Here is how to create your own.

Below is a graphic for you to PIN but below is more details on how to do it.

1. Fold 2-3 Baby Wipes in half and lay them on a plate.  A smooth plastic plate is best.  I ended up using a couple of paper plates together as that is all I had suitable.  Be sure to have a couple though as the ink leaks through.  The paper plates are ok for a small number of inkings.  Add dots of your first colour of reinker over different spots on the wipes.  Then add your 2nd colour and lastly your 3rd colour.  I think 3 colours are enough.  The colours I used are Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry.

2. Ink up your stamp as you would normally on an inkpad.

3. Stamp your inked stamp onto your card.  If you are stamping multiple of images then clean your stamp and ink your stamp again between each one. Your Baby Wipe Inkpad should last quite a number of stampings.  I think I got 15-20 from the one inked wipe.

4. Complete your card as you like.

To finish my card.

Adhere the Bermuda Bay card mat to a Thick Whisper White card base. Cut the circular Border Thinlit from the Petals and More Thinlits from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhere down the left hand side of the Bermuda Bay Card.  Adhere your stamped white card you had created with the Baby Wipe Technique on to the card.  On the right hand side stamp the flower image from the Petal Palette set in Bermuda Bay ink.  

Stamp the bird in black on scrap white card and cut it out with the matching Framelit from the set.  Stamp the sentiment on to Tangerine Tango card and cut with the Oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.   Raise both the bird and the sentiment off the card with Dimensionals.

Have you tried the Baby Wipe Technique before?? I am keen to try it again.  Each time you stamp it works out differently so give it a go if you haven’t.

Just to show you how different they can be.  Here is all the stamped pieces when they were done.  I inked the leaf in different positions on the wipe at times to get the variations.

(Not the best lighting but it might show you). 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny

COLOURING WITH INSIDE THE LINES DSP!

Just a quick post for you today.  I have only just got back from holidays today.  I might share some of my crazy adventures with you here sometime but for now a quick card.

I realised I hadn’t shared some projects from Onstage from November.  You might have seen a few ideas around different blogs.  Today is a quick card using the ‘Inside the Lines’ DSP.  Colouring for Adults has taken the world by storm I think.  While I love a little colouring I haven’t really caught on with this phase (perhaps I would rather stamp!). Stampin’ Up! have now some Designer Series Paper to colour.  I have seen some great ideas recently where you don’t need to colour too much so I might have to try some of these ideas out sometime.

Here is a card you can make in no time and it only requires just a little colouring.  Of course with the gorgeous new Watercolor Pencils.

inside-the-lines-dsp

Using a section of the paper you can cut the piece into sections. Here I have cut it in 3 sections. Colour one piece with the pencils and assemble them together on your card front. The sentiments are from Dragonfly Dreams.  On the “Thanks” just that word is coloured with black marker and stamped on a strip of white card.  The background stamping using another sentiment is inked in the Tangerine Tango and stamped over the card.  Ink once and stamp it on the card then stamp again elsewhere to get a lighter stamping. You can stamp a third time too before inking.  Repeat this several times over the card.

Finish the card with some Black Twine and some Burlap Ribbon. 🙂 You can receive this paper as one of your Free choices for Sale-A-Bration.  There are some other wonderful choices too.  Have you checked the catalogue out yet?  You can click on the link in the right hand column.

For every $90 you can grab your Free choice. Have you made your shopping list yet?  You can then stop by my store (link in the side column) and shop up big.  Don’t forget to grab your Free Sale-A-Bration set too.

ONSTAGE LIVE BRISBANE REVIEW!

It has been over a week now since I have returned from Brisbane for Onstage Live.  I haven’t stopped since getting back.  I now have had a few minutes to look at the photos I took and thought I would share a few of the fun moments.

20161103_134137

It was very exciting to be a part of. Brisbane held the Live event running over 3 days of fun presentations, seeing gorgeous new products and great business sessions.  Some of the presentations were telecast to centres around the world where the Onstage Local events were being held for one day.

Brisbane is a beautiful city – with even a beach right in the middle of the city!!

The event opened with these amazing guys. Swagamama is a local hip-hop break-dance group.  Their performance was incredible with their choreography and acrobatics. You didn’t know where to look next.

20161103_140029

Even the President Rich Jutkins is not afraid to stamp.  He did a good job too. 🙂

Shelli of course demonstrated some gorgeous projects.

20161103_145054

I am not going to share too many of the new products at the moment but I will share just one project Shelli made.  Isn’t it gorgeous with the new Dragonfly Thinlits.  Ooh! look is that Watercolour pencils?? 😉

20161103_144847

There were so many fantastic presentations showing new products coming up in the Occasions Catalogue and for Sale-A-Bration.  So many great new techniques too that I just have to try. I might show you some of the projects at a later date though so I don’t give too much away at the moment.  😉

At the end of the last day things were going a little downhill – fast!! I won’t say too much about this but it was very hard for Sara and Shelli to keep it together.  It is a bit blurry but just shows the mayhem! Sweet innocent shelli 😉

20161105_153115

We already had Rich showing how he could stamp and he mentioned then it would be so much worse if he was on stage with Sara and Shelli.  So ……  They got him up right at the end for him to finish the project.  Pressure was on!

20161105_154208

Here is my name badge with ribbons. It is only a small little collection from others but I was pleased with my achievements for this past year.

It was so good to see Shannon West again from the US Home Office.  She is so gorgeous.

20161105_162013

Onstage is such a fun, inspirational event.  I am looking forward to Onstage Local in Sydney in April.

Thanks for looking.  It was just a little insight in to the fun.

THIS WAS MY ONSTAGE SWAP!!


As you may know the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event is on right now and I am in Brisbane for the Live event.  It is very exciting!  Part of the fun of the event is swapping with other demonstrators. It’s great sharing ideas and meeting up with others.

I had grand plans for swaps again this year but with college assignments, Stampin’ Up! stuff, family stuff and life it just didn’t work out.  I had my design worked out though.

Although I didn’t get to make a number of them as swaps I made one ready for the display board at Onstage.

So here it is.  I was inspired by cards on Pinterest for this.  This is using the set ‘Paisleys and Posies’.

paisley-circle

To create this. First cut a circle using the Layering Circle Framelits from scrap paper. The scrap paper is the same size as your Whisper White mat and you will cut it near the top of your paper. This is your mask piece.

Lay the scrap piece over your white card mat and stamp your images. On this card I have used Flirty Flamingo. Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inkpads. Stamp your sentiment on the white card in Black.

I layered the card on to a Peekaboo Peach card base. Then finish with a diecut flower from the ‘Paisleys Thinlits’ and an adhesive pearl in the centre.

I hope you like the card anyway. At least I can share it with you.

We are having a fantastic time at Onstage. I so love catching up with my demonstrator friends.  I can’t wait to share the exciting new products coming very soon. So watch this space. 🙂

Now just before I sign off today too since we are talking about Onstage and swapping. I posted Live on my business Facebook page yesterday about the craziness of swapping. You might be able to catch that there still if you head to my page. The link is in the right hand side bar. My first attempt at Facebook Live but I hope to bring more to you soon. 🙂

I hope you have an awesome weekend.

LOVE AND AFFECTION WITH AFFECTIONATELY YOURS DSP!

We made this card at Stampin’ Up! Onstage in April.  You might have seen some versions of it around.  I thought it was about time I share mine with you.  Check out that paper.  It is the ‘Affectionately Your’s Designer Series Paper and it has little specks of copper colour in the paper making it very sparkly.  Copper is so on-trend at the moment.

Onstage card

I am still not completely sure of the stamp set (Love and Affection) but I really love the Floral Affections Embossing Folder.  What do you think? The greeting is from the set and is stamped on Watermelon Wonder card. The base card is Mint Macaron. The card is nice with that little bit of shine from the paper.

It is very, very wet here this weekend.  Just the weekend to stay inside and craft away I would say. 🙂

Stay safe wherever you are.  I hope you have some crafting time,

Jenny

SNEAKY PEEKS OF NEW PRODUCTS!

OK,  I wondered if I should show you this, like really, would you really want to see some new products. 😉  I don’t want to spoil the surprise of the new catalogue so I am just going to show you some teeny tiny sneak peeks.

I just love the way Stampin’ Up! display their products at these events like Onstage so I couldn’t resist sharing them.

Don’t you love the way the ribbon is displayed? And don’t you just love the new incolor ribbon?? 🙂

This paper is pretty …. Festive!

It’s even cool how the Washi Tape is displayed.

332 - Copy (2)

Love the detail in these dies!

So that’s your sneak.  Are you excited for the new catalogue? You should be.  It is fantastic.

If you would like a catalogue sent to you (Australian residents only) and you don’t have a current demonstrator then drop me a comment and I will send one out to you as soon as I can.  You will love it.

Be back again soon,

Jenny
