OnStage Make & Takes
One of the things I enjoy most at Stampin’ Up! events are the make & takes. They’re usually on the simple side, which I appreciate. Don’t get me wrong, I love a card that has lots of stuff going on, especially vintage cards. But they’re not practical for workshops and classes where lots of people are making multiple projects. So the OnStage make & takes are easy to duplicate for my classes. All I need to do is change the colors, designer series paper, and stamps and I have a fresh look. If I’m really in a time crunch, I simply copy the original. Why reinvent the wheel, right?
Here are the Make & Takes from OnStage Live in Salt Lake City last week.
The live events are a little less hectic than the locals when it’s Make & Take time. There was a short presentation from a demonstrator, then we had about 40 minutes to complete the project. The first one I attended used the Bubble Over Bundle. It includes two sizes of bottles, labels, straws to die-cut with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, and Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes. So fun! We also used the Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP) that will be FREE with qualifying purchases during Sale-a-bration.
In my second class, we used the Petal Passion collection. It’s so easy to color the black & white Petal Passion DSP. You can see in the photo how we colored just a few of the flowers with a Stampin’ Write Marker. Then we stamped the little bird and the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp set, and put it all together with the Petal Passion Embellishments and Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon.
The next class used the Tutti-Frutti collection. This includes super cute little fruit stamps and coordinating punches. We were looking all over for the tag punch, then realized the opening for the ribbon was the punch for the lemon/watermelon slice. How clever is that? This collection also includes four Stampin’ Spots and Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Woooot! If you’ve ever adhered sequins to a project, you’re going to appreciate the adhesive-backed ones, and they’re in fresh, fun colors.
Our final Make & Take was the silver gable box in the Sweet Soirée collection. The beautiful Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper has silver foil accents on one side of each sheet and colorful printed images on the other. The suite includes the Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon (so, so gorgeous!), Shimmery White and Silver Embossing Paste as well as new decorative masks, another Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and more.
Of course, my favorite gift was this.
Please ignore the coffee drips on the side. Oops. I didn’t pay attention before I photographed. There is coffee in the cup as well, but it’s pretty far down. And that’s not my lipstick on the other side. The colors go from Wisteria Wonder to Powder Pink, and there’s a little of each color on the rim of the cup. So cute! Did you notice the new brand as well? The frame around the logo is open on two sides to give that “out of the box” idea. Fun!
I hope you enjoyed the little sneak peek of a few upcoming products. My last class last Friday was a new product demonstration, including the Stamparatus. Be sure you reserve yours today!
