OnStage November 2018

I went to Orlando, FL last week to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th birthday and we really had fun!  There were 41 of us in Susan’s Stampfield Stars group.

For me the most exciting thing was that the clear-mount and wood-mount stamps are going away and are being replaced by cling stamps that actually stick to the blocks!!!!!

There are also a couple of new butterfly stamps set with coordinating punches or dies!  I love butterflies!

OnStage Gifts

Right now I’m in Orlando, FL attending OnStage!  It’s the 30th anniversary of Stampin’ Up! so I decided to head to the BIG convention (normally I only go to the one day local ones I can drive to).  I’m not going to be alone; there are 40 others from Susan’s Stampfield Stars group attending too not to mention the almost 10,000 demonstrators that I don’t know yet!

I decided to make treats for everyone in the group.  Shh, don’t tell them, it’s a secret.  😉  This is what I came up with based on the container of leftover snowflakes from my Beautiful Blizzard projects.

For my first one, I just put the mint patties in the cellophane bag but it’s much easier to do it with the little Shaded Spruce liner.  The liner is 2″ x 6″ and scored 1/4″ from each edge.  The link to where I got the idea for the liner is lost somewhere on Pinterest.

I even used the new Snowfall Thinlits on one.

Snow is Glistening

There is a special going on this month featuring a few snow themed products, my favorites are the Snow is Glistening stamp set and the Snowfall thinlits.  For this card I only use one stamp from the set but I love how the tree is made up of all the little snowflakes.  Seriously, I don’t think I can pass up snowflake stamps or thinlits.

Rooted in Nature Fall Card

At Demos Galore in September, Carol Rosengren showed how to use the Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus to make a fall tree.  I was absolutely blown away and decided that was what I would do with the Rooted in Nature tree too.  For my tree, I used Soft Suede, Grapefruit Grove, and Cajun Craze to a make a fall tree that coordinates with the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  The tree turned out so beautiful I didn’t want to detract from it by adding a sentiment.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 15

This was actually the first project I created when I got the Beautiful Blizzard bundle.  The problem with that was that I figured out the dimensions as I made it and didn’t use adhesive sheets so you can see all the dots of glue.  😦  It does look really cute when it’s lit at night though.  Needless to say, that is a battery powered candle and not a real one, that would be dangerous.
