Last Saturday I spent the day in downtown Minneapolis with my mother, her downline, my mother-in-law and my ADT friend Tanya (along with 750+) demonstrators for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage convention. We had a blast! We were able to get our hands on the new upcoming catalog, see many new products and demonstrations, make a few cards and of course - win some new stamps!!
Since my mother and her downline were able to stay an extra 3 days, we stamped a few times to ink up each other's new sets. Here is one that my mom's downline Traci won. (My MIL also won it, so I will be inking her copy up some more this week!) The set is called Oh So Eclectic. If you've seen a glimpse at the catalog cover, you might recognize the set. It's pretty and I'm looking forward to making some more samples.
For the background I used Lemon Lime Twist (one of the new in-colors!), Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. I loved the look of the background and hesitated before adding the stamps. I think it turned out great though.
This set does have a coordinating framelits set, but this was simple enough to fussy cut.
You may notice 2 new ribbons - one is the Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and the other is Gold MINI sequin trim! LOVE IT!
Here's a closer look at the watercolor background. Tanya Boser from the Artisan Team stayed at my house and gave us all a technique class on how to get this look. Thanks Tanya!
So there's a little sneak peek at a new set coming out. I would love to hear what you think about the set and the new Lemon Lime Twist color! I personally love it and didn't think I would even like it!
Have a wonderful Easter!
HE IS RISEN!
