Onstage in Quebec City was a blast! The drive there and back was uneventful, other than rush hour traffic on Fri - that was insane! Quebec City is a beautiful spot to walk around even with the steep and tall hills. Check out my Instagram feed for some pictures of my weekend away - www.instagram.com/FromWhereIStamp.

Today I'm sharing my second swap that I made up for Onstage. I haven't looked through the swaps I received back yet but hope to share some of those within the next few weeks! Since I made 20 of these I wanted a simpler design with few layers. My Stamparatus was very helpful to creating this card quickly. The bass and the lure were stamped in Night of Navy while the bubbles were in Balmy Blue. For the cattails I coloured in the top part with a Bronze Stampin' Blend.

Stamps: Best Catch
Colours: Gray Granite, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Balmy Blue
Accessories: Catch of the Day, Bronze Stampin' Blend

Onstage Swap #1

April 13, 2019 in , ,
This card is cased from one I saw on Pinterest. The original card used designer series paper from the Holiday Catalogue so I switched it to the Wood Textured Designer Series Paper. I had a lot of scraps that were perfect for this card! I made about 20 of these cards as swaps for today's Quebec City Onstage that I am attending. Head over to Instagram to check out the excitement as I will be sharing photos of today's events - www.instagram.com/FromWhereIStamp

Stamps: Country Home
Colours: Rich Razzelberry, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Accessories: Tin Tile Textured Embossing Folder, Leaf Punch, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

Welcome to my blog and April's Colour Combo Blog Hop using the colors Pear Pizazz, So Saffron and Blushing Bride.

These colours are perfect for Spring! I'm looking forward to seeing my tulips and daffodils in my garden. My garden and these colours brought to mind the First Frost stamp set - a prefect combination for this project! The coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits help make this card come together quickly.

There has been a buzz the last while online about the Floating Frame technique and I thought it would be neat to try it for a swap card that I needed for the team meeting this past Sunday. The technique calls for Press and Seal wrap but someone had mentioned on the Demonstrator Facebook page her idea of doing the technique without the wrap. First I cut out the frame with the Stitched Rectangle dies and then embossed it using the Seaside Embossing Folder. Ahead of time I stamped and die cut the images. Once the frame was ready I placed the image on the frame, then used my scissors to trim the pieces that hung past the edges. The images then are popped up on the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and placed on the frame. To finish the card adhere the frame to the card base and stamp the greeting in the middle.

Stamps: Sea of Textures, Humming Along (sentiment)
Colours: Soft Sea Foam, Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories: Seaside Embossing Folder, Under the Sea Framelits, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals

Welcome to the April Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month we are featuring The Neutrals Collection with our projects.

A few people had asked me to make some Father's Day cards and the Neutral collection is perfect for them. I had bought the Best Catch bundle from the Occasions Catalogue for scrapbooking pictures of my husband's fishing but it also fits for Father's Day.

I used Shimmery White cardstock for the water, embossed it using the Seaside Embossing Folder,  sprinkled Prussian Blue Brusho over the "waves" and spritzed with water. I left some of it white thinking that it looked like whitecaps on the water. You can see the sparkle of the Shimmery cardstock in the above picture. The fishies were die cut and then embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Love how this card turned out - definitely have to make more cards using this stamp set!

Stamps: Best Catch
Colours: Night of Navy, Mossy Mellow, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Whisper White, Shimmery White
Accessories: Prussian Blue Brusho, Catch of the Day Thinlits, Seaside Texture Impressions Embossing Folder, Subtle Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder, Silver Metallic Thread, Tailored Tag Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
