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:

Chalk Talk

September 18, 2013

I love the new Chalk Talk framelits – we made this card at a recent class. This one also featured a butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri set again and we used the reverse side of the Argyle embossing folder; I usually prefer to use this side.

Papillon Potpourri Revisited

May 7, 2013

I had intended to remake this card for a class, but using Comfort Cafe DSP instead of the stamp. However I accidentally took the smaller butterfly punch, so had to improvise – I actually prefer this one to the original!

Stamps: Papillon Potpourri, Tea Shoppe
Punches: Bitty Butterfly, Word Window, Modern Label
