My Stampin UP! Regional On Stage Live Event - Telford Display Board Stampers Project entries

If you follow my blog, you will know that I love the build up to Stampin Up! Events. I love designing and making my swaps, so Demonstrators can share creativity, and get fresh ideas to use in their own workshops. It is also a great way of networking with other like minded members of the Stampin Up! Family.
On the day, I love the make and take projects, the display boards, the free products, and of course, the Prize Patrols. The Camaraderie id electric 

T this years event in April is held in Telford, at The International Center, and Stampin Up! put out a call for anyone who had a mind, to submit 
Two 3D Projects 
Three  A6 Card Fronts 
& a Scrapbook Page

So of course, I embraced this creative idea, and got crafting, Below you can find the items I have submitted for consideration  to become one of the On Stage Live Display Board Stampers.

I hope you like what I have made, and even if I am not selected from the hundredsof UK Demonstrators  that will no doubt apply for the same privilege, I have enjoyed the taking part!


My First 3D piece is this Tissue Box Cover, made using the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set & I coupled it with this lovely sentiment from the Get Well soon Sentiment from Hopeful Thoughts Stamp set, .

Next is the first of my Card fronts. The card above uses the Bordering Blooms Photo polymer Stamp from Stampin Up! I used a combination of Rose Red & Blushing Bride & Elegant Eggplant inks to sponge the background, and then using the White Craft Ink Pad, created the subtle Bokeh technique for the background. The different sized Bokeh were created using a combination of the Dots Decorative Mask, a Sponge Dauber & the eraser (rubber) on the top of a pencil. I then stamped some small flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp Set, punched out using the co-coordinating Punch, and stamped them in a a combination of Rose Red and Elegant Eggplant inks, and using a Stampin Sponge, the edges of the flowers were sponged using a combination of all 3 inks I used for the card. Some of the flowers were Popped Up using Stampin Dimensionals, and the Mat layer is Rose Red. Finally, the sentiment is from Stampin Up!'s Happy Happenings Clear Mount Stamp Set.

To show diversity, I then decided on a masculine card, although, if you changed the sentiment, it could work just as well for the any gender.This card uses a Masking technique for the sentiment.and I chose this years outgoing In Colours, along with Basic Black and Basic Gray Classic Ink Pads. If you like the colours, you will be pleased to know that you can purchase an In Colour ink pad/Cardstock assortment bundle  ... just chose between the 2014-2016 pack, or the 2015-2017 pack

Any how, creating this card front goes the opposite way round to how I normally create a stamped card. I began by stamping the Fathers Day sentiment from the Guy Greetings Stamp Set using Basic Black (archival) ink pad, and then using a Black Journaling Pen and a steel rule, I drew two lines, one above and the other below the sentiment. Next, I cut down some Post It Notes, retaining the sticky strip and covered the sentiment and lines. Once the mask was in place, I stamped the card front using a combination of two seaside/nautical stamp sets - By The Tide and From Land to Sea. Both are available via my Stampin Up! Demonstrator Website.The Mat layer is Lost Lagoon, to create that sense of sea. Because I adore the Turtle Stamp, I wanted to highlight it. Sot on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, I stamped some of the coral, then over stamped the background with the a couple of the Turtles. I then die cut this using the Lots of Labels Framelets Dies and run this through my Big Shot. Next I die cut a mat layer using Blackberry Bliss cardstock (from the In Colour Collection), using the next size up Framelit. I trimmed the tops off the labels and popped the labels up using Stampin Dimensionals, and then mounted the label onto the card front.

My third card front, uses some of Stampin Up!'s delightful Designer Series Papers (DSP), coupled with some Funky Stamping using the Friendly Wishes Stamp Set (also from Stampin Up! ... of course) For the card base, I used Melon Mambo Cardstock from the Brights Collection. I then trimmed a piece of the Rick Razzelberry based Bohemian DSP, and mat it onto the card base. Next I trimmed a piece of Very Vanilla into a proportional rectangle and using 2nd generation stamping and stamping off techniques, I created the background using Melon Mambo & Rich Razzelberry Inks (to keep the project co-ordinated) and one of the smaller faux watercolour stamps from A Work Of Art stamp set.
 I then over-stamped the panel with the Friendly Wishes Stamp and Archival Basic Black ink Pad. The stamped panel was mat onto a piece of Old Olive Cardstock (again, from the Brights collection). and the panel was mounted onto the card front using Stampin Dimensionals to 'Pop' it  and finally, and an In Colour Blossom Accent (resin flower) was added, using Chrystal Effects as the adhesive. up!When my son saw this card, he felt it looked like a Chalk Board Banner, and it was his favourite card from the three I made.

Let me know, which card you prefer?

Now for the scrapbook page. Now, I have begun creating my own Project Life Scrapbook, and you will find photo's from that, plus a video, that shows you my very first attempt at Project Life. However, for this piece, I decided on a standard 12" x 12" scrapbook page. Since the photo's feature my boys at the seaside when they were young (now 32 & 29) I wanted a very organic but fun theme to the page. So rather than going for a standard piece of cardstock, I chose one of Stampin Up!'s Specialty Paper, the Corrugated Kraft Cardstock. When I build a page, I like to pick out no more than 3 colours from the photos I to use on the page  as I feel it creates a co-cohesive finished effect.
So I chose Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, & very Vanilla, with a teeny bit of Sahara Sand in there too. The sentiments were stamped using the Archival Basic Black Ink pad, to ensure They stood out when stamped onto coloured cardstock. The stamp Sets used in this project are: Trust In God; Words of Truth; Writing Notes; & Project Life This Is The Life. The sentiments were then punched out using a combination of the Decorative Label Punch, 3/4" & 1" Circle Punches, and finally, the 1" Square Punch, The Square punch was used to punch out squares of Designer Series Papers that were then folded in half to create the bunting and secured using a cut down piece of Stampin Dimensional. The Bunting was then threaded onto a piece of Linen Thread. The card was then embellished with some Candy Dots.

 Finally, I have my second 3D project. Now if you follow me on a regular basis, you will know that this is a project I have been working on recently. I have already published 2 video's (plus blog posts) on how to create this extra large exploding box. I will be filming the final part of the tutorials later this week,. On first glance you will probably wonder what is different .... well carry on scrolling down ...


Yes, below is the final card (excluding the personal embellishment that I will add, before giving this to my Mum for Mothers Day.

I have spent  the past week scratching my head, wondering how to create a gift box in the centre of the project, so Mum would have to open the box to reveal the gift within. And then I had one of those 'PING' moments, where I suddenly realised I had the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlets Dies, so I die cut a box using the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Papers (DSP), and sponged the paper with some Hello Honey ink to keep the project fully co-ordinated, and stamped the FOREVER  sentiment usng for the lid of the box using the the Happy Happenings Stamp Set.and and die cut the label using the Tags & Labels Framelets Dies.


Next, I assembled the Curvy Keepsake Box and and glued the base of the box onto the centre of the Explosion Box. I then inserted my gift into the centre (That bit will remain top secret) and closed the box. I finally added some Ivory Satin Ribbon and tied a knot, threaded some Linen Thread through the tag and under the satin ribbon, tying a large loopy bow.

And that's my 6 pieces my pieces. All that is left to do is submit the link of today's blog post to Stampin Up! UK and wait with bated breath to see if I am one of the lucky ones.
