GINGHAM BUTTERFLY ONSTAGE SWAPS!

Last week I shared one of my Onstage Swaps.  You can head back a few posts if you missed that.  Today I thought I would share my second swap.  It is good to have 2 different ones.  It gets a bit tedious making so many of one card.

For my second swap card I used the Butterfly Duet Punch with the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. 

I made some in each of the colours in the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.

The card layout was similar to a card we made for Craft Alive a few months ago.

Here is a close-up for you of a couple of the cards.

Firstly Highland Heather and then Lemon Lime Twist.  The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons.

Check the butterflies though.  I saw the idea for this on Pinterest.  I thought I saved it and now can’t find it.  I will find it later I am sure

What I did though was sponge ink on strips of Shimmery White card so you get a little sparkle with it too.  Simply sponge 2 colours of ink in lines along the strip. See this below.  This was just a selection of the strips.  I did lots of sponged strips.

Once done punch the large and small buttefly using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  There were lots of pretty butterflies.  I did have fun making them.

Hope you like the cards. Thanks for visiting.

ONSTAGE SWAP #1 – GEARED UP GARAGE!

As you might know I went to New Zealand recently for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage Live event.  It was a fantastic time.  You know what I love the most about these events?? Sure we get the new catalogue and we get to see the awesome new products BUT, THE BEST part of it is catching up with my Stampin’ Up! friends and meeting many for the first time.  Especially when you have chatted online.  It’s a fantastic time.

I will share more about Onstage shortly and show you some photos but for now I thought I would show you my Swap cards.  With swapping you create a number of a card and swap them with others. Swapping is a great time to meet up with other Demonstrators too. You get to come home with lots of different cards and ideas.

I made 2 different cards.  This is one of the cards I made.  It uses the Geared Up Garage Bundle.  I have shared lots of cards with this bundle over the last week or 2 while I was away.  It’s fitting that I share you this one first.

I made 3 different versions of this card.  Good to mix it up a bit when you make so many.  I embossed the card mat with the gear dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits and used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment was stamped and cut with the Bunch of Banners dies.

See the background?? I created this with the smooshing technique.  You can see how to create this effect in this post -> HERE.

I will share the other swap card next post so stay tuned.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #46 – CHECKING OUT MY ONSTAGE SWAPS!

Something different for you for Wednesday’s WOW! today for #46.  Since I have just returned from Onstage in Melbourne I thought you might like to see the swaps I received.  I could show you photos – and I will but I have a video for you as sometimes you can see them a little better and especially see what the 3D ones are actually like.

So here is the video below.  Further down I have the still photos for you if you want to PIN them.

Such a selection. Aren’t they just lovely?? Thank you everyone who swapped with me.  I hope these give you some inspiration for your projects.

I will show you the swap card that I created shortly.

Thanks for visiting,
