OnStage 2017 – Post 1

I’m so excited to be in Savannah attending the Stampin’ Up April event. I love seeing friends and stampers I’ve met over my 10 years as a demonstrator. In addition to being here with my awesome Stampin’Amigas, one of my downline was able to attend. Welcome to OnStage Carmen Delgado! Here are a few pictures, I’ll be posting more later to share what I can.

Napkins that Sparkle & Shine

You will never look at napkins the same way after learning how to use them for card making. In my recent Technique Class I showed my awesome stampers two Napkin Techniques. I’m going to share one of those techniques in my blog today, I call it the Napkin Glitter Technique!

I picked up a pack of Easter napkins at a local store for a couple of dollars and made these beautiful cards, click and zoom in so that you can see the sparkle!

This technique is not difficult but there is a process in order to get it right. Take a look at the video below and see how it’s done.

Inspired March Cards

I host 3 regular monthly classes and sometimes I just need help to come up with new ideas. There are times when I think the ideas are great as is and why change a good thing? For my monthly Oviedo Mall cards I copied two cards from a couple of talented stampers.

This card was inspired by Lynn Starl, you can see her original post HERE.

The above card was inspired by Tana Boser, one of our 2017 Artisan Designers. You can see her original card HERE.

My stampers loved these cards and I’m glad I found them!

It’s Been 18 Years!

My baby boy is not a baby anymore, he recently turned 18 and we celebrated with a few family members. I got nostalgic and started going through previous birthday photos and wow, what a difference…he’s turned into this bearded young man!

Join me down memory lane as I reminisce on the little boy I once had.

Happy 18th Birthday Jared!

Cards, Friends and Fun!

I recently had my monthly Oviedo Mall Stampers class and it was so much fun to see everyone enjoying themselves and being in the company of old and new friends.

friends

This group have been friends for years and they like to get together every so often to stamp. It was nice to see Katie, Gail, Lisa, Zahira and Karletta.

Now what did these friends stamp? Take a look at the cards below, my friend and fellow Stampin’Up demonstrator Debra LaFountaine designed the following 2 cards.

One of my cards was inspired by Linda Heller from Stamping School who designed this layout with different Designer Series Paper and color combination. I loved the simplicity and elegance of the card so much that I had my Oviedo Mall Stampers make it!

One of my favorite Designer Series Paper Packs is the Serene Scenery and I couldn’t resist using it for this card.

Here’s a look at my second card…

wp-1486431887891.jpgSimplicity was my theme for this class. I used the Mediterranean Moments stamp set for this card. There are so many coloring possibilities but I decided to keep it simple.

New Year, Beautiful You !

Let me start off by saying that I finished my year sick in bed with a really bad cold and virus that was lurking in my body for a few weeks. As soon as the cold weakened my immune system the virus took over and weakened my body. Plenty of rest and downtime along with minimal medication has helped me recover. Enough on my health because now that I’m feeling a lot better I’m ready to start the new year with new ideas!

My plan was to catch up on my videos and projects so I’m just going to have to carve out some time and for that later on this month. What’s exciting about this month is that tomorrow all of you have the opportunity to see and purchase products from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs! If you don’t know what Sale-A-Bration is let me explain; for every $50 you purchase from the Annual or Occasions Catalog you get to pick one FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Best of all, there are no limits…the more you purchase the more Free products you get!

Watch the video below to see some of the new products.

There are so many stamp sets that I love  from the Occasions catalog but a few are my top favorites. A couple of them are Beautiful You & High Tide. They were both used to create the card below.

wp-1483467236081.jpg

I used a few techniques for this card and plan to show them in my upcoming Technique Class so this will be one of the cards my stampers will be making. My goal is to make a video demonstrating these techniques.

Check back tomorrow for the links to the new catalogs and if you’re not on my mailing list and would like to receive a catalog just comment below and I’ll get one out to you.

By the way, it’s the last day to order from the Holiday Catalog.

Until next post, take care and have a creative day!
