Stampin' Up! Still Night Bundle 

One of the joys for a creative personal attending On Stage is seeing the creativity of wonderful Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world.  Today, I'm highlighting a beautiful card I received from Sharni Haines, a very talented demonstrator from Australia who flew all the way to Orlando to participate in Stampin' Up! On Stage and one of the organized swaps I was part of last week.  

Sharni's card was a masterpiece that I think I'll end up framing it, it is so wonderful.  I also love the fact that she used a bundle from the Holiday catalog--the Still Night Bundle--and shows an example of how the card could be used for cards other than the Holiday season.  As an avid stamper, I love seeing ways to extend the use of stamp sets I purchase. Her blog includes more ideas for using this set.        


The basecard is Gray Granite.  Then a layer of Very Vanilla dry embossed with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   

The top and bottom of the card have 3 layers of waves-like layers of Gray Granite, Copper Foil Sheets and a layer of Smoky Slate.  Each layer is popped up on Dimensionals to created beautiful dimension to the card. 

The Night Owl Thinlit dies with this bundle create the branches, which are cut from both Gray Granite, Smoky Slate and Copper Foil Sheets.  The label shape is also included in this die set.

The owl is stamped using the Still Night Stamp set and then colored with Bronze, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Petal Pink Blends Markers and due cut using the Night Owl Thinlit dies. The "moon" behind the owl is a circle of vellum on top of a layer of Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint, giving the "moon" an ethereal feel. 

This card just blew me away.  The use of both Smoky Slate and Gray Granite together adds to the overall textures in this card. It is gorgeous in real life, and now I have to rethink ordering this set! The recipe for this card is below. 

I wanted to show you a couple of additional swaps I received during general swaps.  Demonstrators swapped cards during any lull in activities --  while waiting for the main stage doors to open; while waiting for sessions to start; during lunch breaks; while sitting in the lobby charging your phone.   General swaps don't require a demonstrator to add their names to their swaps, and unfortunately, the two I'm showing today, didn't have contact information to give credit to these creative demonstrators.

Join us for a crafty afternoon of making holiday cards.  You'll leave with these 6 cards to use as samples to create more cards for your ever-growing list of friends and family.  As a crafter you know they won't settle for a Facebook Messenger Wave, a few holiday emojis at the end of a text, or a store bought card.  They know you're a crafter and they are looking for a card from you they'll be proud to display this holiday season.

Do it the easy way.  Come make cards where all the cutting is done for you.  Join us Sunday afternoon, November 18.  We'll create 6 holiday cards you can customize with sentiments that work for your needs, and the yo can use our samples to create more cards on your own.
