Celebrating OnStage with Wood Textures Suite for TA Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Onstage April 2017”.

Onstage is an event held for Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators only, where we get to see, feel, and play with brand-new soon-to-be-released products. This event was based on the brand new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

 

Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog #stampcandy

 

We want to show you some of the highlights of this event and hope that you can join us and other Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators in the future. Just one more reason to join my team!

Eight members of my team attended along with me, and we had a blast. We even had matching shirts, cups, and earrings!

Nine of us attended OnStage Savannah, April 8, 2017 Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Judy Newsome, Debbie Catlett, Caitlin Jones, Candy Ford, Linda Krueger, Missy Wiedeman, Donica Williams, Tamara Burton, and Kimberly Laidley.

My favorite thing about OnStage is seeing the demonstrators I only get to see at events like this. Well, and making new demonstrator friends. Oh, and the presentations. And the project ideas. And participating in swaps. And getting the newest catalog before anyone else. And getting some of the brand new products FREE before anyone else has even seen them. And pre-ordering new products before anyone else. So yeah, basically all of it.

Here are some shots from OnStage:

We weren’t yet allowed to show the new products, so that’s why we are hiding the stamp sets we won during Prize Patrols. Debbie Catlett, Donica Williams, Caitlin Jones at 2017-04-08 OnStage Savannah by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

That evening, after OnStage was over and everyone had some dinner, Brian King’s team gathered in his suite for a Pajama Jam. We had snacks and went through the new catalog page by page. Of course, the Candy Hearts had matching pjs for the event (though not everyone has on their pj bottoms yet in this photo.)

I’m not sure what happened between these two shots, but Brian definitely had something to do with it. The camera caught him before he could get away. You can check out Brian’s blog post today for more photos of the Pajama Party.

Here’s what I made:

I was honored to present the new Wood Textures Suite of products at OnStage Savannah, and to create a display board of projects made with them. Today I’m sharing one of those projects. At first I filled the crate with a bag of Easter color Peanut M&Ms tied with a piece of the brand new Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine.

Happy Easter with the new Wood Textures Suite by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Then I realized the M&Ms might be too heavy. The crate would be attached to a display board with velcro, and I was afraid the weight could cause the crate to warp or even tear. I found some small, lightweight Easter egg ornaments at Target, so I used those instead. (Most of my other display crates had miniature marshmallows in them for the same reason.)

The “grass” in the crate is some shredded gift bag filler I had on hand.

 

Here’s what I did:

Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:

  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the crate die (2 pieces)

Stamped with the Wood Words stamp set:

  • floral image in Pool Party ink onto one slatted side of the crate

Stamped with the Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pool Party ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock (CS)

Stamped with the Falling Flowers stamp set:

  • small flower in Pink Pirouette ink over sentiment

Die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

  • sentiment

Assembled the crate:

  • two crate bottoms glued together, then tabs glued to sides to form crate
  • sentiment adhered to front of crate with Stampin’ Dimensionals

Here’s the hop:

One Last Sale-a-bration ICS Blog Hop – Any Occasion

Today I’m sharing two baby cards made with the Any Occasion stamp set. You can only get this Sale-a-bration stamp set with a $50 purchase now through March 31 – and it’s FREE!  It has 20 stamps, and it’s FREE! Now that’s a deal!

Here’s what I made:

These sweet little cards are great to have around for all those baby showers you’re always invited to.

Colors are Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, and Whisper White. #stampcandy #stampinup

 

Here’s what I did:

I used Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes – these are wonderful to have around for quick and easy card making (they also come in Crumb Cake.)

The boy card has a piece of Soft Sky card stock (CS) glued to the card front. I stamped the images from the Any Occasion stamp set in Soft Sky ink onto a piece of Whisper White CS, attached a Bow Paper Clip, then glued it to the card front.

The girl card is the same except for the color (Blushing Bride) and instead of the paper clip, I tucked in half a Lace Doily, and added a Blushing Bride heart from the Subtles Enamel Shapes.

Easy peasy!

Thanks for the Mouse

 

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!!

 

 

And now back to today’s regularly scheduled card…

 

cat and mouse thank you card a

 

While a mouse might not be my ideal gift, it certainly would be for a cat, like this cute little feline made with the Foxy Friends Bundle. Anyway, it’s the thought that counts, both in the gift giving and in the thank you.

Here’s how I did it:

I used the Fox Builder Punch to cut the pieces of the cat from Smoky Slate, Whisper White, and Blushing Bride card stock. From the Foxy Friends stamp set, I stamped the face in Memento Black ink onto the head, and I stamped the legs in Smoky Slate ink onto the body. I glued on the nose, ears, and tail tip, then used a Sponge Dauber to apply Smoky Slate ink around all the edges.

I used my Paper Snips to cut the banner from a piece of A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper.

On a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock, I drew the “ground” with the brush tip of a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the mouse from the Love You Lots stamp set, and the first part of the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp, set in Memento Black ink. On both of these stamps, I only inked up the part of the stamp I needed.  I glued on the banner and the cat pieces (tail, then body, then head.) I glued this whole thing onto a Pool Party card base.

On another 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the second part of the message in Memento Black ink, then glued it to the inside of the card base.

When I saw the new Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, I just loved all the images and couldn’t wait to use them. But I wasn’t quite sure how to use the little cutie at the top right. I don’t remember ever seeing a Christmas card with an eskimo. But all I had to do was take a closer look at the sentiments in the set to figure out what I wanted to do.

 

Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle

 

This little bundled up guy (or girl) needs to be where it’s cold. And what more iconic place for an eskimo than beside an igloo?

 

igloo card a

 

Here’s how I did it:

 

I stamped the eskimo in black ink onto Whisper White card stock. I colored the image with Stampin’ Write Markers in Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, and Crushed Curry. I used a Blender Pen with Crumb Cake ink to color the legs, and with Pink Pirouette ink for the face, to make the colors lighter. I used the Cookie Cutter Punch to cut him out.

I ran a piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot in the Brick Wall embossing folder. I then used a Layered Circles Framelits Die to trace a circle on the back with a pencil. You can use anything you have on hand that is round and the right size. I used Paper Snips to cut around the top curve, down straight on the left side, and to the top of the second brick from the bottom on the right side. I cut an entrance on the right. I used a Soft Sky Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the cracks between the ice bricks. I went over the whole thing with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (which unfortunately never show up well in photos.)

I used the Outdoor Adventures Framelits Dies to cut the mountains and the snow caps from Whisper White card stock. I glued the caps on the mountain tops, then went over just the caps with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Now the assembly. The card base is Soft Sky card stock. I glued the mountains onto the card base. I adhered the igloo and the eskimo with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the first part of the sentiment on the card front, and the second part on the card’s interior, in Early Espresso ink.
