Onstage Team Swaps

Last weekend I attended our Stampin’ Up!® Local OnStage event in Melbourne and the team I am part of decided to do a team swap.

I decided to create a card using my current favourite set, Tropical Chic, and the co-ordinating products.

Here is the first sample I made.

I liked it but thought it needed a little more.

This is my second sample and what ended up being my team swap card.

I think the extra strip of paper worked well.

I really like these colours together which are taken from the Tropical Escape DSP.

I also love the extra touch the Metallic Sequin Assortment gives. These have a pink tinge to them which fit perfectly with my colour combination.

Do you have a preference?

A Friend Like You

Starting today, Marelle Taylor’s Stampers Anonymous Team, will be hosting a Team Blog Hop on the 14th of each month. Our Hop will hopefully inspire you with new ideas and products to create with.

This month we have a nice easy sketch to work with.

This sketch was created from the card on page 97 of the Annual Catalogue. Lets see how everyone has adapted the sketch to suit other stamp sets.

I’ve created a very simple card using the gorgeous ‘Love What You Do’ Stamp set.

I stamped the background wash in Pear Pizzazz, the flower image in Memento Tuxedo Black and then Gorgeous Grape (stamped off once) to give some colour to the flowers. My sentiment has also been stamped in Gorgeous Grape. I’ve used the Detailed Trio Punch on the corners and the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment.

You can make your way around the hop or back to the previous blog by clicking the buttons below. Feel free to leave us comments and let us know what you like about our creations along the way.

Timeless Tidings Project Kit

If I had to choose just 1 kit from the new Holiday Catalogue it would be the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. I absolutely love it. It’s a very traditional kit to me and I love Poinsettia’s so this kit grabbed my attention on my first run through the catalogue.

The kit comes complete with card bases, elements & envelopes to make 20 cards. That’s 5 each of the 4 designs. On top of the Kit you will need the co-ordinating stamp set, a black inkpad (Stazon is suggested or you could use Memento which is what I did) and adhesives (snail,Tombow or tear & tape, and Stampin’ Dimensionals). Once you have these extra bits if you wish to make more than 20 cards you just need to purchase the project kit again. I’m making a few of these for my parents so they have their supply of Christmas cards early.
