Saying Goodbye To Mixed Borders

Mixed Borders is a stamp set that will be retiring at the end of May.  It is such a cute set and I am sorry to see it go.  It is a two step stamp set where you use two stamps to make one image. In this case, the border is the two set stamp.  The flowers are in Watermelon Wonder (a retiring In Color *sad*) and the leaves are in Emerald Envy.  They are really easy to line because the stamps are Photopolymer so you can see through them.

The “Hello” was cut out using the Large Letters Framelits.  This set of Framelits is something everyone should own.  You can use it to make cards, banners and scrapbook pages. Honestly, although they are a little pricey, they are worth it.  You will have them forever and never need another set of letters.  You could have a qualifying workshop and get them for half price.  You could always join Stampin’ Up! with me and get these letters as part of your Starter Package or you can use your Demonstrator discount to purchase them.

Mixed Borders will be available until May 22nd.  After that once it is gone, it is gone for good.

Tags & Luminaries For Friends

Last weekend I went to New Jersey to go to Stampin Up! OnStage Local.  Every April and November Stampin’ Up! has a convention called OnStage somewhere in the world for their Demonstrators.  It rotates between The United States, Europe and Australia.  This time it was held in Australia.  When it is not in the US, Stampin’ Up! holds what is called OnStage Local.  They rent our various venues all over the US where Demonstrators got for a day, watch videos from OnStage (wherever it was held), do make ‘n takes and learn about new products.

A lot of demos swap cards with each other.  This is where you make so many cards (whatever number you are comfortable with), usually all the same, and swap them for cards that other demos made.  It is a great way to meet other demos and get ideas for cards at the same time.  In addition to this, some demos make special little things for their friends.  This year I decided to make luminaries and bag tags for my friends using the Copper Foil Paper and Copper Embossing Powder.

This is the bag tags I made this year.
