Fun with Stampin’ Up! at OnStage Live in Amsterdam

I’ve just returned from a Stampin’ Up! Event, OnStage Live in Amsterdam.  An event where a group of 800+ Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from across Europe joined together.

An important part of these events is sharing inspiration, and we achieve this by swapping ideas.  Each person makes multiples of the same design and then swaps their projects with other Demonstrators.  As a result, you receive that number of ideas back and no two are the same.

Here is my swap

For You Card made using Touches of Texture Stamp Set, Jar of Love Stamp Set and Watercolor Pencils from Stampin' Up!

You may see that it is very similar to a recent Card & Cuppa project – this is purely intentional!

All of the stamping uses Chocolate Chip ink, with the flowers and leaves coloured with Watercolor Pencils.  I made 64 of these, 16 in each colour way.

I’ve layered a sentiment from the Jar of Love Stamp Set onto three strands of Linen Thread.  The finishing touches are Wink of Stella bees and Pearls for the flower centres.

Two products from this project are on the retiring list, Wink of Stella Gold from the bee bodies, plus the Pearls which are being reconfigured.

A benefit of attending the event is being one of the first people to see the Brand New Annual Catalogue. Try imagining the moment when 800+ very excited people get their hands on a new catalogue at the same time.

We saw new products up close and also made projects with some of them too.  As well as the excitement over the new catalogue another higlight is presentations from key Stampin’ Up! staff and fellow Demonstrators.

These events happen in April and November each year so why not come along too.  If you like the sound of what I’ve described, you can attend too by joining my team and becoming a Demonstrator.

Happy crafting
