On Stage Live – Brisbane!

November 4, 2016

I’m a little excited to be at On Stage Live here in Brisbane; it’s been a while since I last had the chance to get to a Stampin’ Up! event. I did make some swap cards – I wasn’t sure whether I’d get time to make any and only started them last Thursday but I got about fifty done. There were four colour variations for my original idea (making multiples of the very same card does get a little boring so I changed the colours for a little variety!) and then made a few more cards on an entirely different theme.

The first cards I did were spinner cards:
