OnStage Hartford 2018!

I was fortunate to be able to attend OnStage this year in Hartford, Connecticut! I had an absolutely wonderful time, was able to reconnect with old friends and meet several new! Our team, Stamp It Group, had the pleasure of honoring our up-line, Tami White, and her momentous achievement of $2 Million in sales! We were also given the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, but sadly I can only show the cover! Once you get your hands on this, you will not be able to put it down! I love it! So stay tuned, I walked away with some goodies that I am able to share and also was able to purchase some products from the catalog that will be here in a couple of days! Next week will be full of new and exciting products!! Can you see how many sticky notes I have!

So for today’s special post, I’m sharing some of the pictures from my trip and the wonderful friends I made!

Today I’m sharing another creation from the Moon Baby and Dare to Dream stamp sets! This is really the first time I’ve used Dare to Dream, which is a hostess set from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, considering it’s been sitting on my shelf since I won it at OnStage last April!

I first started with a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” and again at 2 1/8”:

After folding the front panel pieces, I used the “hot air balloon” from Dare to Dream and stamped in Melon Mambo ink:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “baby with the umbrella” in Black Archival ink. The Designer Series Paper used is from Painted with Love, cut out with the largest scalloped Layering Squares Framelits, and the baby is cut out with the 2nd largest square framelit:

Then color in the umbrella with Melon Mambo Stampin Write Marker, the baby’s pajamas with the Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker, the baby’s hands and face are colored in with Ivory Stampin’ Blends, and the hair with Bronze Stampin’ Write Marker. This is then adhered to the scalloped square piece of DSP:

The inside is a piece of 1 ½” x 5 ½” DSP and a piece of 2 5/8” x 5 ½” Whisper White cardstock. I used Multipurpose Glue on these pieces to give me a chance to set them on the inside. The sentiment is from Dare to Dream, stamped in Melon Mambo ink, and added some stars in Powder Pink ink. I used adhesive on the left side of the layering square piece, centering in the middle:

With the different colors on this DSP, you could change to Powder Pink or even Rich Razzleberry! I love this super cute card, what do you think?

Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for stopping by!

Happy 2018!

Hello and welcome to Christina’s Creative Corner!

After the hustle and bustle of getting creative for the holidays, I found myself needing a couple of New Year’s cards for people that I was not going to see until after the New Year. I was inspired by Tami White and the cards that she made and decided to make my own version. The base of the card is in Island Indigo, I used the Large Number Framelits Dies for the 2018 on the Soft Sky Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper, and I used a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock to heat emboss “Happy” in Silver Embossing Powder from the Number of Years stamp set, using the Banner Triple Punch on the ends. I trimmed a Window Sheet down so that it was big enough to cover the 2018 to make this a shaker card. I lined the edge of the Window Sheet with Foam Adhesive Strips, placed some Frosted Sequins Embellishments (these are retired; however, you can use the Metallics Sequin Assortment) on the Window Sheet, placed the Soft Sky Foil DSP on top, and then adhered this to the Island Indigo base. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used on the piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The inside sentiment I used from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which I stamp in Soft Sky, and used a Sponge Dauber with Island Indigo ink around the edge. Hope you enjoy this shaker card and thanks for stopping by!
