It is an awesome perk as a demonstrator for Stampin’ UP to be able to attend their live On Stage events. I always come back excited and inspired to try a lot of new techniques and ideas.
Demonstrators come back with a lot of fun swag as well. I also won a stamp set in the prize patrol and they gave all attendees an additional stamp set as well.
Another great perk that you get as a demonstrator is the product purchase premier. You can participate in purchasing from a select group of products from the new catalog before anyone else if you attend the On Stage event! It is so exciting to be able to work with products so quickly.
Stampin’ UP demonstrators who did not attend the live event get to order December 1st. Customers get to order beginning January 1st.
Do you want to be one of the lucky ones and get in on the fun?
The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog. I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape. Paired up with the Merry Little Labels Bundle, which includes the stamp set and matching punch, the little sentiment makes a wonderful winter card.
Most people really don’t know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making. It is a simple way to add pattern and color. But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
The result is a die cut with a thicker texture and some fun color to boot! Try it out! I set my washi snowflakes on a background of more washi tape as well as stamped snowflakes and rhinestones.
Fun Color Palette
These fun colors were pul right from the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape in the Stampin’ UP annual catalog. It had a lot of great patterns and they reminded me of winter time.
Washi Tape is really a great buy too. It is $8 for this pack of 5 different designs. If you would like to try out the technique but don’t want to spend even that much, check out the Clearance Rack. Currently, Stampin’ Up has a few different 5 packs of washi tape for $3.20 each! Hurry, quantities are limited.
It seems that when Stampin’ UP’s holiday catalog goes live we, as demonstrators, tend to forget the great resource that the annual catalog offers all year. This Father Christmastag features products from the annual catalog and goes together rather quickly so you can make several.
Traditional Color Palette
This nostalgic tag features the traditional colors that we are used to seeing at Christmas time. I have also colored the image with Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Blushing Bride.
To color the Santa image, stamp him using Black Stazon ink on Whisper White card stock. Press the lid of your stamp pad several times while it is closed to get ink on the inside of the lid. Then using your aqua painter, fill in the colors that you like to give Santa a watercolored look.
Be Merry DSP
The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin’ UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag. To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits. Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.
To finish the tag, I punched a hole in the top with a standard notebook hole punch. I then looped an 8 inch piece of Double Stitched 1/4″ ribbon through the hole.
Don’t forget that through October 31st, the Be Merry DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale. So you can stock up before Christmas on these great patterns.
