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.

Sweet Soirée Cards

Sale-a-Bration ends this Saturday!

I love, love, love buying Memories & More card packs, the problem I always have is using them up.  I personally don’t like the look of pocket scrapbook pages and there are only so many cards I can use on one scrapbook layout soooooo I tend to use them to make cards instead.  I was inspired by a photo from Stampin’ Up! and also by Jackie Aitken.

Here is what I created:

And here is what inspired me from Stampin’ Up!:

I actually did create a version of the Adventures card but I forgot to take a picture before sending it off to the boutique I sell cards at.  The change I made to it was to stamp Await using the Brushwork Alphabet instead of Side by Side.   I needed graduation cards.  🙂

Here are the cards close up:

Party Pandas Spinner

When I saw this card, I knew I had to make it.  It was just so much fun!  Here is my version that we made at my last Cookies & Cards class.  We used the Stamparatus to get the Panda fully black and colored in the hat with Stampin’ Blends.

More Wildflower Wishes Paper Pumpkin
