Onstage Display Stamper Blog Hop - Day 2: Petal Passion DSP and Perennial Birthday

Welcome back to day two of our Onstage Display Stamper blog hop and I hope you've enjoyed yourself so far. The girls have made some amazing displays and I don't know about you, but I know my Occasions catalogue wishlist is growing.

Today I thought I would share two cards that I made with our NEW black and white designer series paper, called Petal Passion.

The first card I left the paper as it was and just added a little silver glimmer boarder and a sentiment from another NEW stamp set called Perennial Birthday.

But for the second card I wanted to show how versatile this patterned paper was and I decided to use my new Stampin' Blends and coloured it in
Wow what a difference the Blends made. The card layout is the same and I kept the sentiment the same too, but just adding some colour to the paper has made this card go from lovely to stunning.
I can see myself using this DSP a lot and can't wait to try other ways to add colour to it.

Thank you for blog hoping along with us once again. I hope you are looking forward to day 3 as much as I am! But it's that time again to head over to the amazing Dawn Olchefske and see what amazing creation she has today! Crafting,

Onstage Display Stamper Blog Hop - Day 1: Painted with Love Stacking Boxes

Wow I'm so excited to be able to finally share my Onstage Display samples that I made for Melbourne.

I was so lucky to get chosen and the new goodies that Stampin' Up! sent were awesome. So today and over the next 6 days myself and my global Display Stamping sisters are getting together to share all our stunning displays in a fun blog hop!

So the first creation I wanted to share was a set of three stacking boxes using the stunning NEW Painted with Love specialty designer series paper.

Isn't that new paper stunning!! The deep pinks, purples and peach team up perfectly with the brush sweeps of gold foil. And every single sheet in this pack has a gold foiled side and a plain side.

Because the paper is so beautiful and really the star of the show, I wanted to keep the embellishments simple and so I decided to add a few hearts from the NEW stamp set called Heart Happiness, which I gold embossed and fussy cut out.

I tied everything together with out lovely Berry Burst crinkled ribbon and gold sequins. I can't wait to feel these little boxes with yummies for someone special. you for blog hoping along with us today. I really do hope you'll pop in again tomorrow and hop along again to see some more gorgeous projects. But now it's time for you to hop on over to Dawn Olchefske and check out what stunning master piece she has to share today!!

Happy Crafting,

Onstage Local in Melbourne - Best Day Ever!!

So last weekend I had the most amazing couple of days at Stampin' Up! Onstage local in Melbourne.

I just love going to convention. I enjoy the presentations, seeing all the new goodies and of course the freebies but what I really love about Onstage is hanging out with like minded, crazy crafters.

Whether that's catching up with friends or meeting new people, that's what gets me going to convention again and again and again. In fact I haven't missed a Stampin' Up! event since I joined, almost 6 years ago and I have no plans to stop now.

So I wanted to share my weekend with you, but I warn you in advance that this post is about to get very picture heavy!

Melbourne is always a lot of fun especially when the sun is shining and the noodle festival is on. Such a great way to spend a Friday evening , with an awesome group of girls, eating Pad Thai and watching the "dragons" dance.

The next day, it was up bright and early to head on over to Onstage to hang out with some of the best people I know.

Oh and even more added excitement for me this year, I was chosen to be a Display Stamper and was asked to make 15 beautiful creations (more on these coming up over the next few days) with new goodies from the upcoming Occasion Catalogue. This was my display board and I just happened to be above the awesome Bronwyn Eastley and so we of course had to get a photo together.

My girls and I had the most amazing time. I got to stay with the gorgeous Liv Ingle from Inkreations and we had so much fun together.

And Stampin' Up! really did spoil up. Our tote bags were full of goodies and we all won a prize patrol too. I even got to walk the stage after being recognized for Leadership and Recruiting.

 After I got home, Stampin' Up announced their top 50 Overall Demonstrators and I was listed at 35 out of 5,000!! It made me feel so thankful and grateful to all of you, my blog followers, my amazing customers, my gorgeous class girls and my awesome team. You guy's totally rock!!

 Happy Crafting,

Just Add Ink Challenge #383 Just Add Cake - Happiest Of Days

Happy Fri YAY everyone. We, at  Just Add Ink, are all about cake this week.

I was so excited about this weeks challenge as it meant I got to play with a new stamp set that has been in the Annual catalogue and on my wish list since June and I finally got around to ordering it.

I really love the Happiest of Days stamp set and the sentiments could be used for either birthdays or weddings.

How cute it that little cake too! I got to colour it in with my new Stampin' Blends (available on 1st November) and I just love how easy it was to do. These Blends are a heap of fun and I'm sure you are all going to love them as much as I do.

So thank you for dropping by today. I really do hope that you all take part this week as I think there is going to be heaps of inspiration shared around with this weeks challenge!!

Happy Crafting,

Just Add Ink Challenge #381 - Birthday Delivery

Happy Friday people and welcome to another Just Add Ink Challenge, where this week we need to just choose two of the following things to add to you card: Embossing Paste, Colouring or Sequins.

I decided to go down the colouring road and of course adding sequins is always a given!!

I just adore this little girl in the Birthday Delivery stamp set and I kind of think she looks a little like me when I was a child. I think it's the curly hair.

I used my aqua painter to watercolour my image today and I really do think the more you practise the better you get at watercolouring and I think this might be my best one to date. It certainly made me feel like watercolouring a few more of the images in the set. The poodle has been calling my name for a while.

I hope you find some time this weekend to join in with us and get a little crafty. I know myself and the rest of the girls love seeing what you all make!!

Happy Crafting,
