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.

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.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 13

This was my daughters favorite card and one of mine too.  I just love the color combination.  I’m almost exactly CASE’d it from TatianaCreative.com.au.  Her card was just so beautiful.  Now I just need to create a scrapbook page to put the SNOW on.  🙂

Highland Heather and Pool Party were stamped off before stamping on the card front for the snowflakes, Balmy Blue was stamped full strength.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 12

So when I first got the Blizzard thinlit I wondered what I could make with it that wasn’t strictly a snowflake and I came up with this wreath.  I created a Whisper White wreath to mount the snowflakes on.  I colored each of them with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler light and dark Stampin’ Blends before using the fine-tip glue pen build the wreath.  All of the Cherry Cobbler pieces have Wink of Stella on them but again that’s not showing up in the photos.

Here is the wreath I created from the largest stitched shapes circle and the 2 1/4″ circle punch before I added the snowflakes:

I had lines drawn on the back of my wreath so I could evenly distribute the snowflakes but not everyone feels compelled to be that precise.  🙂  Also some of the white for the wreath showed behind the snowflakes, hence the white background.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 11

This card was inspired by Sam Hammond Donald.  I love how she used pinks for a snowflake card so I made my own.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 10

I absolutely CASE’d Terri Gaines for this card.  I saw her present it at Creative Connections last month and I knew I had to make it.  I love that she cut the top panel and hid the cut with the ribbon.  The ribbon is threaded through the hole and then tied to keep it in place hiding the slice.  Plus it’s really shiny with the silver foil layer and the sentiment embossed with silver embossing powder.
