This weekend, I will be in Salt Lake City with thousands of other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the country at Stampin’ Up’s OnStage event! Every six months, Stampin’ Up! holds these events for demonstrators and they are SO much fun! We get to see new products, new catalogs, make projects, win prizes, and of course, meet lots of new people! One of the best things about going is that many demonstrators make “swaps”, where you make a bunch of cards and swap with other demonstrators for what they have created. Unfortunately, I completely dropped the ball this time on general swaps, but I did make some for the other demonstrators that are going from my team. There are twelve of us total. I don’t want to show the finished card until I have had a chance to give them out, but here’s a little peek! I used the new Stampin’ Blends to color the peony stamp from the You’ve Got This stamp set. The stamp is large, so it really ends up being the focus of your card when you use it! I used both the light and dark shades of the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends on the petals of the flower, as well as Daffodil Delight on the centers, and both shades of Old Olive on the stems and leaves. Even though I tried to color each flower the same, each flower is unique and different from the next in terms of blending and shading! I will post the finished card sometime in the next couple of days. I hope you’ll check back to see the final result!
Have a great day!
