Woo Hoo! Can you feel the excitement? The new Annual catalog is only a few days away from releasing and with it some super duper awesome new stamps, dies, and accessories I can’t wait to get my hands on!
I was lucky enough to be selected as a display stamper for the 2016 OnStage demonstrator event in Salt Lake City in April. One of the big draws to these events is that you get to see tons of sneak peeks and even play with products from the upcoming catalog. And to help that excitement, they put together big 8” display boards that show lots of ideas using some of those new products. So as a display stamper, that meant I got to get some of the new sneak peek products early and got to create ideas to inspire my fellow crafters.
Let me tell you… that is a bit of an intimidating challenge! Sharing my style and hoping that it sparks inspiration in many talented crafters! In the end, the display boards were AMAZING – you can see a photo album of all the display boards over on my Facebook page – http://facebook.com/nwstamper (just click on photos and you can find the display board album!). But over the next 5 days, I’ll be sharing closer up photos of all of MY projects.
OnStage Display Board Samples – Watermelon Wonder
So, I was asked to create 4 projects per returning In Color (so that is Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, and Cucumber Crush). With a good mix of cards, 3D projects (ack! 3Ds… so hard for me!), and scrapbook layouts. Today I’m sharing my Watermelon Wonder projects. I’ll have follow up blog posts later with more project details for each one… but in the meantime, I hope this gives you some fun ideas to create with carry over and NEW SNEAK PEEK products!
For example, this almost-no layer card using the new Swirly Bird stamp set and pretty striped In Color ribbon!
I love the copper foiling in this Affectionately Yours designer paper that I used behind the butterflies for this luminary (just be sure you use one of those fake/electric tealights!)
And I just LOVED this photo of Caitlin, so I had to work it into a scrapbook page. Plus it meant more playing with my Sunburst thinlit, Swirly bird stamp set, and that Affectionately Yours designer paper.
I was always afraid of Watermelon Wonder because it was such a bright color, but it turns out that with the right mix of colors it can be oh so pretty! Don’t you think?
Want more of the Sunburst Thinlit? The Class by Mail deadline is almost here!
If you were thinking of trying out the Sunburst Sayings Class by mail or tutorial, just a quick reminder that I’m only going to accept registrations for the class by mail until May 31st (the tutorial will continue to be available after that). So, make sure you’ve check it out and reserve your kit to learn and try out 5 different ideas using the Sunburst Thinlit die!
