Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap 2018

Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap 2018

Hello Friends,

We had a fabulous time at the 2018 Stampin' Up! OnStage!  Today, I thought I would share my OnStage Card Swap with you and how I made it.  It's a long standing tradition to swap cards and 3-D Paper Crafts when attending Stampin' Up! live events.  Since Stampin' Up! is celebrating 30 years, I went with a Congratulation theme and since we meet in Orlando, Florida,  I also went tropical.


Tropical Chic Stampin' Up!

First, I stamped all my elements starting with the two-toned flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set.  To make my flowers, I inked the center of my rubber stamp with Flirty Flamingo Ink with my sponge dauber.  Then, I ink around the center with Daffodil Delight ink on another sponge dauber.  After I had them all stamped, I cut them out using my Tropical Dies.


Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up!
Stamping the flamingoes was a 3-step process.  I used my Stamparatus, stamp positioning tool to stamp multiples of the flamingoes.  I find that stamping the flamingo outline first makes it easier to line up the other stamps.  My second layer was stamped with Powder Pink and my third layer was stamped with Flirty Flamingo.


Using the Stamparatus

By using several different Stamparatus plates I was able to stamp my partial Buffalo Check background, my flamingo legs and my sentiments by simply changing out the plates.  Speaking of Stamparatus plates, did you know that you can purchase additional plates now?  See all the new Stamparatus new accessories here.

Country Home & Buffalo Check Stamping Technique

Country Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, I'm sharing the first of 2 video tutorials on making this County Home Buffalo Check Card.  Learn how to make different checks using the Buffalo Check stamp.  I'll share a second video later in the week with coloring techniques.  To me, today's card is pure country from the checked background, to the corrugated card stock and finishing up with the Country Home stamp set.

 

This 3 minute video shares a technique to alter your Buffalo Check and stretch your stamping dollars!

Bonus Tip:  I showed the the video how to ink the plaid on today's card.  Now take a look at the center plaid.  This tighter weave plaid was created by making all the lines cross over the white spaces.  It's what I call a guy's plaid.


Country Home Stampin' Up!

Stop back tomorrow, for a second video.  I'll walk you through the steps for coloring today's card.

Hello Friends,

Happy World Card Making Day!  Here's a Trio of Projects using the gorgeous Petal Palette stamp set to celebrate National Card Making Day and Stampin' Up!'s National Card Making Day Sale.  Scoop up and Save on this beautiful stamp set along with other paper crafting supplies through Sunday, October 7, 2018.  Let's take a closer look at the projects.  

 

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

 Both cards feature the spray of roses stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set.  My Color combination is Flirty Flamingo, Call Me Clover and Daffodil Delight.

 

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

 For the first card, I stamped the roses randomly across my card front and colored them with Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends.  I then used the polka dot stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set and Soft Sea Foam Ink to stamp dots across the background.

 

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

 And card number two features the same spray of roses as a focal point on this Flirty Flamingo Card Base.  The front panel was embossed with my Ruffled Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  For accents, I used copper Trim and leaf ribbon.  I cut out my sentiment with a die from the Stitched Labels Dies.

 

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

 I know that it's World Card Making Day, but I couldn't resist this cute little gift idea-a loaf of banana bread dressed up with the Petal Palette stamp set, Polka Dot Tulle and Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon.  The sprays of leaves were cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  Speaking of Dies, below is a tip for getting the most from your dies.

 

Paper Crafting Tip by Robin Feicht

Stretch Your Crafting $$ and Customize Your Die Cuts


Adapt the length of your die, by cutting the full die, then slide the die over and cut again to shorten to the desired length.
