Stampin' Up! OnStage Display Board Entry

Happy New Year Everyone, sharing some projects (some new and some old) for an entry to Stampin' Up! for the opportunity to stamp projects for the OnStage display boards for the April Event. 

I am going to the Perth Event and I am looking forward to catching up with everyone and also meeting some new faces.   I really enjoy these events as you get to see and try the new products coming our way, see new projects that people have made which are such an inspiration, training tips and tricks and one of my favourites is the swapping of projects. 

Not sure how I will fare but if you do not enter you will not be selected right, so here goes. We have to make 3 cards, 1 scrapbooking page and 2 3D items for our entry.


For my first card I have used the new Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the stamp set Nailed It and coordinating Build It Framelits.  The Urban Underground Embellishments added a finishing touch.

For my second card I have used the new Watercolour Pencils to colour the image from Birthday Blooms.  I coloured the image in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  How amazing are these Watercolour Pencils, they make water colouring so easy.  I fussy cut the image and layered it over one of the new Lace Doilies. These doilies have a Very Vanilla side and the other side is Whisper White, so they can be used on so many projects.

The sentiment is from the Labeler Alphabet.  The background  was made by misting a piece of Whisper White with Pink Pirouette ink mixed with Isocol Rubbing Alcohol and then stamping in Archival Basic Black the random dots image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Basic Black Metallic Thread and some Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes were added as finishing touches.

My third card is one that I had made previously.  I really like the simple classic lines of this card.  It is also a great card for a beginner stamper to do, it looks complicated but it is very easy to do.

I have used the stamp set 'Dragonfly Dreams' and the matching 'Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits'.

I stamped the 1st Dragonfly image with Basic Black Archival ink and then stamped the 2nd image using Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay ink and the rock-n-roll technique.  The background on the square Shaped Framelit was stamped using the dot image stamp and Soft Sky ink.  The card base is Bermuda Bay and the sentiment from the same stamp set is stamped using Basic Black Archival ink.

Scrapbook Page

You know when you see a stamp set and you think immediately of how you can use it.  This happened to me when I saw the Hey Chick stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue as I knew that I had these great photos of my Great Niece enjoying some time in the Baby Barnyard at a Junior Diabetes Fundraising Event.

I am still working out how to photograph my scrapbook pages.  I create the pages regularly but do not photograph them so my technique leaves a lot to be desired, so sorry for the finished picture.

3D Items

My first 3D Item is a hexagon box I made to fit 4 small cakes of soap.  I had purchased these small cakes of soap that are circle in shape and are individually wrapped so I wanted to make a small box to put them in for a thank you gift.

Using the Grid Paper (great resource this), I worked out the dimensions for the box that I would need.  This is the finished box.

The flower and leaves on top were made using the Botanical Builder Framelits.  For the flower I cut out 4 Very Vanilla flower shapes and formed them into the flower, with one of the flower shapes folded to form the centre bud.  The little tag is from the Tags & Labels Framelits with the sentiment from the Circle of Spring stamp set.

My second 3D Item is one that I am quite excited about.  I teamed the All Year Long Project Life Card Collection and the All Year Long Project Life Accessory Pack with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack and created this little file folder that holds a mini album.

The project measures 4 3/4" high by 6 1/2" high with a depth of 1".

The mini album pages measure 6" x 4 1/4".

There are four double pages going forward and three double pages on the reverse when the album is turned over.  All pages have been decorated with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper and the All Year Long Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  Pockets and tags have been created to added more areas for photos and journaling and some dimension to the album.

Thank you for visiting.
