OnStage Display Board
I was so honored to be chosen to design projects for a display board at the OnStage Local in Richmond last month. It was fun seeing new products early, and getting to play with them.
When I first got my box of products, I laid them all out and said, “hmmmmm.” It was definitely a challenge, because many of the products (especially the stamps and designer series paper) were not in my comfort zone. But I think I designed some pretty cool stuff.
Here’s my board.
At the bottom right is Amelia’s fairy wand that I mentioned yesterday. I tried to have a good mix of cards and 3-D items, as well as a scrapbook page.
Here’s what was in my box –
Stamp Sets – Text Y Later, Celebrate You
DSP – Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink – Powder Pink, Berry Burst Classic Stampin’ Pads
Paper – selection of all five new In Colors, Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock, Glossy White Cardstock
Other – Happy Birthday Thinits Die, Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape, 2016-18 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes (I almost tied a few of these to the fairy wand, but I was afraid that would turn it into a weapon), Mini Gift Bows, Ticket Tear Border Punch
And the ribbon that was included – oh, my! I definitely added a lot of ribbon to my preorder (and I’ll be ordering more on Thursday) because of the preview I got. They sent me –
Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon (GORGEOUS), Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon (I fell in love; I want all four colors now), Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon (like seam binding, but a little more substantial), Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine (perfect for my banner!), and Silver Mini Sequin Trim – which was really fun to work with.
While I tried to use the new stamp sets as much as possible, I added in a few “old” stamps as well – like Beautiful You. I decided to showcase the In Colors on note cards with Beautiful You, using the new colors for the dress and hat. The sentiments on each note card are all from Text Ya Later. This set is very fun and versatile, and you don’t have to use the sentiments as “word bubbles.”
This was a super fun experience. I never thought I’d be chosen, but I knew I definitely wouldn’t if I didn’t try. If you’re a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, seriously consider entering the next time there’s a call.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
