OnStage Gifts

My fellow demonstrators are just such generous people.  I received the following gifts in Milwaukee (#OnStage2018) and I wanted to share them with you.  Tomorrow I plan to show you the swaps I received.  Fingers crossed because the shelf that holds my dies above my Big Shot fell down and I need to get that fixed.  😦

This first one is from Cheryl Lee (my direct upline) for my promotion to Silver.

Fun Things Happen When We Gather

Not long ago I got together with a few demonstrators over at Rachel Tessman’s house because Mackenzie was in town visiting.  It was a good enough excuse to gather and make some cards together.  I’d just driven back from our Spring Break trip to see family in Illinois so I didn’t have time to create a make & take to share but here is what some of the others created for us to make.

Rachel used the new Paper Pumpkin kit and a note card for her make & take.

Susan used the Myths & Magic suite for her card.

Last Wednesday one of my uplines, Rachel Tessman, had a Facebook gathering for her team.  These events are just so much fun and Rachel sends us the best make & takes to do at them.  She did a Facebook live to show us how to make this card and the second one I will show you on Thursday.

Hedgehugs

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Hedgehugs

I saw this card and I knew what I wanted to make with my new Hedgehugs stamp set.  This is the second card from my last Cookies & Cards class.

A few comments though, I’m guessing she is using the new Soft Suede ink (I’m still on the old one I’ve had for probably a decade) since my Soft Suede ink did bleed with the Stampin’ Blends so I chose to emboss in copper.  I would have colored in the hedgehog but I need some serious practice on alcohol markers first.  It did not go well for me.  🙂

145879 Hedgehugs Clear-Mount Stamp Set
102283 Versamark Pad
144575 Stampin’ Blends Cherry Cobbler Dark

144177 Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack
104199 Linen Thread
103083 Embossing Buddy
141636 Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder

 Measurements:

Whisper White Thick 2 ¼” x 3”
Cherry Cobbler 2 3/8” x 3 1/8”
3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
Crumb Cake 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼” on the long edge
3 ¾” x 5”
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack 1 ¼” x 3 ¾”

 Instructions:

  1. Wipe the Embossing Buddy over the piece of Whisper White and stamp images using Versamark. Sprinkle with copper embossing powder and use the heat tool to melt.
  2. Color in the flower with the Cherry Cobbler Dark Stampin’ Blend.
  3. Attach Whisper White to Cherry Cobbler mat, wrap linen thread around 3 times and tie in a bow.
  4. Attach DSP about ½” from edge of Crumb Cake, mat on Cherry Cobbler. Attach to card base.
  5. Attach hedgehog piece.

Sunshine & Rainbows – Day 14

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Sunshine & Rainbows

When I bought the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp set, this layout was one of the reasons.  My daughter loves rainbows and has a big one on her bedroom wall so I knew I could use it to create a scrapbook layout of her room make over.  The other scrapbook layout I was going to use the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle on I apparently did last year.

For the Rainbow title, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 11″ and added 1/4″ pieces of each color except for Real Red and Elegant Eggplant, they were 1/2″ each.  Then I used the Large Letters Framelits to cut the title.  I think it’s my favorite embellishment on the page.

Sunshine & Rainbows – Day 13

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Sunshine & Rainbows

My daughter has been asking for a desk calendar for a very long time now and so I finally created one for her.  The calendar itself is adapted from one Stampin’ Up! created for it’s demonstrators.  I used PVA bookbinding glue to adhere it across the top and allow her to rip off the pages as the months go by.  I used a little too much glue on the first try and the black edge of ink from my printer ran a little.  (I learned how to do this from Damask Love.)   For the Whisper White background, I again used my cloud stencil I talked about in this post.

Supplies:

145983 Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle
126944 Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad
131181 Soft Sky Classic Stampin’ Pad
140272 Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock

102584 Garden Green 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock

105126 Elegant Eggplant 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock
