One of the many perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to attend events. One such event is OnStage which is held twice a year – April and November. OnStage is an all day event where we get to see and play with new products about to be released, receive some training, be inspired by our fellow demonstrators and receive some free products – including new catalogues. It’s a fun filled day that you don’t want to miss out on. Back in April we had the launch of the Annual Catalogue. Here are the ‘make and takes’ that we made using products from four new suites.
First up we have a card using products from the Birthday Delivery Bundle (pg 68-69 of the AC). This bundle includes a stamp set, DSP and Framelits. Some of the images on the DSP coordinate with the Framelits which means you can cut them out as we did here with ‘Mr Fox’. Now this isn’t a set I’d buy but it’s great to have a sample to show everyone.
Next we have the Color Theory Suite. For this card we used the Memories & More Card Pack which can be used for Memory Keeping and also for card making. Check out the Memories & More section in the Annual Catalogue on pages 190-193. These cards coordinate with the Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits dies.
The Daisy Delight Bundle has been VERY popular with stampers. Poor old Stampin’ Up! couldn’t keep up with the demand on this bundle to begin with it was that popular. On this card we stamped the image twice then layered it and adhered one of the new Faceted Gems.
Last up we have the Wood Textures Suite. I LOVE this little crate and have already made a number of these. They’re the perfect size to hold 3″ cards or Whittakers Chocolates! There are three main components in this suite – the stamp set (Wood Words) and Crate Framelits come as a bundle (purchase these two items as the bundle and save 10%) and then the Wood Textures DSP stack can be purchased separately. This paper stack is great for masculine cards. Check out some samples usign these products on page 158-159 of the AC.
I’m looking forward to our next OnStage event which is happening in November.
