As promised, yesterday I finished off my make’n’takes from the weekend at OnStage, or at least, the two I could find! There were four altogether, but two of them are currently AWOL, but I’m confident they’ll turn up once I’m back into my routine. The first card uses the new Needle & Thread Stamp Set which will be available in the new Spring/Summer catalogue when it goes live on 3rd January 2019. When I first saw this set in the new catalogue with the co-ordinating dies, it didn’t rock my boat at all!
As soon as I saw how the images stamp, I had a total change of heart! The decoration on the Blushing Bride sheet on the front of this card, is a die that does only the piercing, and it looks stunning! The little flowers on the front of the card have been stamped and die cut. The green double bow has been made with Old Olive Linen Thread! To finish this card off, I added a Whisper White Cardstock layer inside and added a row of extra flowers I’d stamped and die cut! Although this isn’t my usual layered card, I’d be more than happy to send it to someone! I have included a copy of the flyer which shows how we were to make the card, and I’ve been very good sticking to the guidelines!
The second project has been made with products from the forthcoming Geared Up Garage Stamp Set. Unfortunately, the stamp set hadn’t arrived in time for OnStage so I added the sentiment after I’d arrived home. The sentiment I JUST ADORE YOU is from another new stamp set called Incredible Like You, which I received as a freebie at Onstage. As before, I’ve included a photograph showing what my box should have looked like but I changed it around a bit. Hubby doesn’t like seeing masculine cards which are dark, and this always has an effect on me when I’m making masculine projects! Fortunately, the reverse side of the black and white motorcycle design, from the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper (DSP) is yellow, and the strip of DSP to go across the front was also yellow so they went together brilliantly! The cogs have been die cut, using the co-ordinating dies called Garage Gears Thinlits, using a dark green design from the DSP pack. This shows up a lot more on the yellow design. I put my cogs under the yellow strip, and the gorgeous black and silver ribbon on top of the strip of DSP. It’s unusual for me to like the make’n’take designs but Stampin’ Up! have come up with two great projects this time! I must look for the other two; they must be here somewhere! That’s about it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
