Stampers Anonymous Team Swap

This week is Stampin’ Up!’s Onstage events around the world.  The Live event is in Orlando Florida but I am going to a local event in Melbourne.

This year I am participating in a Team Swap.  We’re all making 25 cards and swapping them with those that wanted to participate.  We will meet during lunch time on Saturday and swap and hopefully get a team photo with all our team shirts on.

Here is the swap that I made.  I love how it turned out.  I used the Stamparatus to get the baubles all lined up and added some sparkle from a spritz bottle.  I used Bermuda Bay card stock for the base and ink and added in some Coastal Cabana Card & Basic Black card.   Before I stuck everything down I punched out the tailored Tag punch from the Coastal Cabana twice.  This is a great way to save on some costs as no one will see where you punched out.  I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White and layered them and popped them up on dimensionals.

Room Mate Gifts OnStage


As OnStage was on the Gold Coast this year we needed to travel and find accommodation.  I booked some accommodation for 4 and had 3 amazing fellow demos staying with me including one of my fabulous downlines.

I wanted to make them feel special so I made a little gift for them.  I used the Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper to make a hot chocolate pouch.

I have included a video for you showcasing the gorgeous products in the Year of Cheer Suite

 

OnStage Swaps

At every major Stampin’ Up! event we, as demonstrators, have the opportunity to swap ideas with other demonstrators.  We are encouraged to make a card front or 3D item to swap with other demonstrators so we can get some additional ideas.

I was really struggling with ideas this time around but after a great chat with one of my downlines I was inspired by re-using one of my ideas that I’d used previously as a demonstration.

So I made these card fronts as my swap using numerous colours.  I used the Faux Bleaching Technique.  I started by sponge braying ink onto the card stock in an ombre look.  I then spritzed the hexagon embossing folder with water and then placed the card stock with ink facing down onto the embossing folder.  Take the card stock off and you should see that the water has taken off the ink in the wet places.  Let it dry and then stamp another image over the top in a darker ink.

You can purchase all the products to make these cards at my online shop.

OnStage Highlights

There are so many highlights but I can’t share them all with you.  I can say that there is something very exciting coming very soon.  Check back again on Friday this week.

On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend OnStage on the Gold Coast with one of my downlines and other team members including my fabulous upline.

 

 

We were given the new Occasions Catalogue and upcoming Sale-a-bration Catalogue.  They both commence on 3rd January 2018.

There are some fabulous new suites for birthdays, valentines day, weddings, Easter and more.

Our Stampin’ Blends are in the new Occasions catalogue as well.  So there is something for everyone.

You can check out all the products, when they are released, on my Stampin’ Up Website.

CentreStage Gold Coast

Last night I had the privilege of attending CentreStage which is a managers only event. This was only my second time attending,
It was a lovely night where we were able to see the new catalogue and products and receive some extra thank you gifts from Stampin’ Up!

I am unable to show very much at this point on what’s coming. You’ll need to have some patience.

My husband is at home holding the fort for me while I’m away and I’m very thankful for such a supportive husband.
While I was at the dinner, I sent him a couple of texts of my meal. He in turn sent photos of his meal.

Here is what I sent him…

And this is what he sent back to me…

It was a lovely night. If you’d like to join my team and have the opportunity to attend CentreStage then sign up with my ProCRAFTinators Team and you too could be spoilt like we were last night.
