OnStage Local Stamping Display Boards Perth

Hi everyone, I was lucky enough to be picked to stamp for the Display Boards at the OnStage Local Event in Perth.  We were provided with a box of goodies by Stampin' Up! and had to create 15 projects.  I can now share with you my creations, hope you like them.

My first set of projects is a set of four cards and a matching file folder box to present them in.  This would make a great little gift.

The stamp set is "Orange Blossom" and can be found on page 175 of the Catalogue available on 1 June 2017.  The new 2017-2019 In Colour Lemon Lime Twist just pops when a little Basic Black is added.

I have used two of the new 2017-2019 In Colours, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.  For the lighter flower I have stamped off before stamping the image.

This card has the new Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon. 

This card uses the new 2 1/4" circle punch with the Stitched Shaped Framelit.  Strips of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Basic Black highlight the sentiment and the flower arrangement.  I fussy cut the flowers and leaves.

This card has the new Silver Metallic Ridged Ribbon.

The next project is from the same stamp set, using the Berry Burst cardstock as the background.  The floral arrangement was backed onto a square made using the Stitched Shaped Framelits and the Layering Square Framelits.

The next card uses the Orange Blossom stamp set also, using the Fresh Fig cardstock base and Fresh Fig ink for the flowers.  The small flowers were stamped off before stamping the image.  The leaves were stamped using Always Artichoke and Old Olive.  The Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon along with some Silver Metallic Enamel Shapes were added to finish the card.

The next set of projects use the Grown with Love stamps set which I teamed with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

The card has the new Blushing Bride Doubled Stitched Ribbon.  A new 2017-2019 In Colour, Powder Pink was used as mats on this card.

Fresh Fig is the cardstock used on this card (I love this colour). There is a matching die set Garden Grown Framelits that go with this set.  I did not get this Framelits set in my box of goodies so I did a little fussy cutting to show the possibilities of this set.

Powder Pink was the new 2017-2019 In Colour used as one of the cardstock mats.  The centre oval was cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits and the small oval was layered up using dimensionals. The flower pot and flowers were also layered up using dimensionals which have a great depth to the card.  A Blushing Bride Double Stitched Ribbon bow was added to the pot to finish.

How cute is this little crate.  I did not know that we were getting the Wood Crate Framelits in the new catalogue, so I made this one from scratch (I saw a picture in the 2016-2017 catalogue and worked out how to do it).  I had a good laugh when the Wood Crate Framelits were demonstrated at OnStage.  Crates and wood just seem to go together.

This little bag was made using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, Gold Foil Sheet and Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  I was given the Lemon Builder Punch in my box of goodies but not the matching stamp set, so I was trying to show case this builder punch and its versatility by stamping the sentiment from the Orange Blossom stamp set.

The next two projects use the Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments.  I found it a real challenge to use these on my projects.  They go terrific with the new Be Merry Suite in the new catalogue.

For the Christmas Tag I stamped the Real Red background using the Brushstrokes Stamp Set and the bow is from the Baby Bear Stamp Set.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.  The Boxwood Wreath Embellishment has been layered onto a Gold Foil Sheet circle cut using the Stitched Shaped Framelits.  The tag has been made using the new Tranquil Teal 2017-2019 In Colour.

For my final project I made a door to hang a wreath on.  

The card base is a piece of A5 cardstock folded in half.  

Cut 2 pieces Whisper White cardstock 6 1/2cm  x 3 1/2cm
Cut 2 pieces Whisper White cardstock 4 1/2cm x 3 1/2cm
Cut 2 pieces Whisper White cardstock 6cm x 3cm
Cut 2 pieces Whisper White cardstock 4cm x 3cm

On the two 4 1/2cm x 3 1/2cm pieces and the two 4cm x 3cm pieces score a .5cm border all sides, making sure that you do not go to the very edge.  To make it easier make a .5cm border with a pencil on the wrong side where you will be scoring.  You will scoring on the wrong side so the pencil lines will not show. 

All pieces need the edges beveled.  To do this, with the right side facing up, place one of edge of piece in the track on the Stampin' Trimmer and score the edge.  I used a stylus of this as it gave a better finish.   Do all edges on all pieces/

Layer the Whisper White cardstock 6cm x 3cm pieces onto the Whisper White cardstock 6 1/2cm  x 3 1/2cm pieces and the Whisper White cardstock 4cm x 3cm pieces onto the Whisper White cardstock 4 1/2cm x 3 1/2cm pieces.  Position these onto the card front (refer to picture for placement).

Add a small piece of Silver Foil Sheet for a letterbox and a Metal Rimmed Pearl for the door handle.

I had a great day at OnStage Local in Perth, catching up with friends and meeting some new faces.

Thank you for visiting.
