Onstage Display Cards Day 3 - Lift Me Up

Yeah it's Friday and day 3 of my Onstage Display samples. Today both cards are from the Lift Me Up stamp set and matching dies. The first one is a little more vintage then my usual style, but it's my Phileas Fogg card:

It's very soft and feminine and because I was looking for that 1700's vintage feel, I used Very Vanilla and added some sponging and stitching.

How much easier will it be to achieve that gorgeous stitching look with out new Stitched Framelits. I just checked my delivery and they should be here today... Squeal!!

The colours I've chosen for the balloons, Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Wisteria Wonder, are also some of my less favourite but they really work well together and I always like to be pushed outside of my comfort zone. It's like a little mini challenge.

Ok so on to my next one. This card couldn't be more different to my first one. It's so bold and bright and the colours really pop against the black die cut.

I just love the how you can layer cardstock or patterned paper behind this balloon and it really is easy to do. The panels fit perfectly, without them overlapping at all.

I decided to use clear embossing powder and heat set my floating balloons. I wanted them to be more for texture rather then visual and I think that worked perfectly. When you catch them in the light they really are shiny.

Lastly, my card needed a sentiment and I had no idea where it was going to go at first. After some thinking I decided to go for a bit of gold embossing on the main card. Now this is always scary to do, especially when you have the whole card put together already. But I do love to stamp on the edge and so I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig and it all came together perfectly.... Phew!!

 Would you like your very own copy of the new Occasions Catalogue?? I actually received 5 copies at onstage as part of Prize Patrol and I've decided to offering them out to the first 5 people who place a $50 order through my online store. Unfortunately this offer is only available to Australian residents.

And don't forget I still have a few of the Pop Up bins available too. So head on over to my shop place a $50 order today and you will receive a copy of the Occasions Catalogue and also a pop up bin. But this is only for the first 5 orders, so be quick and order today!! Oh remember to check out the 25% off stamps that are currently on sale too!!

Happy Crafting,
