I had the incredible honour of being a Display Stamper for OnStage Auckland last weekend. I shared the photo of my display on my Facebook page and some of you have asked for close ups of the cards. So, here are the Fabulous Flamingo cards to start with. I will try and get the others photographed as soon as I am back from holiday.
What is a Display Stamper? Well, there are just four of us that were given a select variety of products from the new catalogue. We all had fun creating some samples to display at our OnStage Stampin’ Up! conference. I was SUPER nervous as there were many extremely talented stampers in attendence!!
So, for some of you this will be a complete tease and I am sorry, but this amazing stamp set is only available from June 1st when the 2017-18 catalogue is launched. Those of you who are demonstrators may be able to get the set earlier. Some of us were lucky enough to get given it at OnStage for free!
Now I have to be honest….. I am so not a Flamingo girl! But this stamp set is absolutely amazing and through creating these cards I have kind of fallen in love with them. There are just so many ways to stamp using this stamp set!!
For starters its a 3 step stamp set….or should I say 5?!! What I mean by that is, that there is the stamp for the outline and the one for the base colour and then one for the shading. Perfect way to stamp for that super quick water coloured look. I just love it! My husband says I say that about every stampset but it’s true! But with this set there is actually 2 more stamps for the legs….one for the out line and one for the colour, so 5!
So the Gold embossed one I have already showed you, I just used the filler stamp and the legs! I am so please with how it looked with the New Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper. This will be available May 1st by the way. Super fabulous early release….but more on that in another post…
For the next one I have stamped the outline in one of the new 2017-18 In Colours – Berry Burst. Then stamped just the filler colour in Pink Pirouette. The lovely leaves are stamped in Dapper Denim, stamping off to get that lighter shade.
For this one I only embossed the outline in White and then used an aqua painter and coloured with Melon Mambo onto Pink Pirouette.
I have used Sweet Sugarplum for the outline for this one and then Flirty Flamingo with Pink Pirouette. Ah! the photo makes it look like I have used Basic Black card stock but it actually Early Espresso. I might have to see if I can re-photograph this because I am such a fan of a pink and brown colour scheme.
I CASEd this one right out of the new catalogue with justa few minor adjustments.
This one is using a black outline with Flirty Flamingo and Pink Pirouette. The leaves are Flirty Flamingo with Calypso Coral to match to beautiful new Ombre Ribbon.
If you made it to the end of this extremely long post I thank you! I really hope these ideas help you when you get your Fabulous Flamingo!
If you live in New Zealand and you don’t have a demonstrator right now I would love to help you with all your Stampin’ Up! projects. Contact me for a copy of our current catalogues to be sent out to you for free.
As always I love getting your comments. It would really make my day to hear from you if you liked any of these cards.
