Lilypad Lake Make N Take

Friday night was team training for the Acorns, so everyone who could make it piled into my craft studio to learn more about what went on at OnStage and all the exciting news about the new Annual Catalogue, Colour Revamp, New Ink Pads etc. It's such an exciting time at Stampin' Up! at the moment.

I designed a relatively quick and easy Make N Take for everyone to make using the Lilypad Lake stamp set and also cardstock and inks in the new 2018-2020 In Colors. The Lilypad Lake stamp set and co-ordinating dies will be available as a bundle from 1 June as will all the new In Colors etc.

Crafting Acorns, Oakfield Crafts, Stampin' Up!, Sneak Peek, 2018-19 Annual Catalogue

Starting with a Thick Whisper White cardbase I also cut the following -

Blueberry Bushel cardstock - 10.0 x 14.4 cm
Pineapple Punch cardstock - 9.5 x 13.9 cm
Whisper White cardstock - 9.0 x 12.0 cm

I also provided scraps of Whisper White for the stamping of the sail boats and the sentiment.

You'll notice that the Happy Birthday sentiment did not come from the Lilypad Lake stamp set. It was in fact from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set (in the current Annual Catalogue and will be available in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue too).

To start, a large circle was cut into the Pineapple Punch cardfront using the largest plain circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits.

The Whisper White cardstock was stamped using Blueberry Bushel ink and the long wavy stamp to give the impression of water, and it was then glued behind the Pineapple Punch card front.

The sail boats and sentiment were stamped in Archival Black Ink and then die cut out using the co-ordinating dies from the Lakeside Framelits Dies. Please note that although there is only one die for the boats, it does cut them into two parts.

The boats were coloured using the new 2018-2020 In Color Stampin' Write Markers (one of the gifts I received at CentreStage) and then added to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Everybody went away happy having seen all the stamp sets etc that those who attended OnStage received. They also saw the ones that the attendees were also able to order as part of the Product Purchase Premier. Being able to see things in person is such a bonus and being able to use them before others is a really great perk.

Pre-order from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue for all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators starts on 2 May and anyone choosing to join during the period 2 to 31 May are also able to choose pre-order items as part of their starter kit. If you would like to find out more please get in touch.

Happy stamping.
