Display Board Stamper Blog Hop - Sea of Textures, Lilypad Lake, Painted Glass

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Onstage April 2018 Presenter & Display Board Showcase Blog Hop. Thanks for joining us.

You are currently visiting Jackie Aitken in Western Australia.  If you are following the hop, you may have arrived here from talented, Kim Oliver. There are quite a few Demonstrators from all over the globe participating in this hop, so be sure to hop all the way through, for loads of inspiration using some of the new products from the new Annual Catalogue.

I was lucky enough to be a Display Board Stamper at my second ever Onstage, in Perth, Western Australia. I was so nervous I couldn't hang my samples, so my wonderful Upline, Sarah Klass, stepped in and hung them for me while I received Check In training. Below is a picture of my Display Board.

My generous box of goodies contained three stamp sets: Sea of Textures, Painted Glass and Lilypad Lake. The new Subtle Embossing Folder and the Lovely Label punch were in there too. I also received the new in colour DSP and matching embellishments, which was so exciting to see, but so hard to keep the excitement to yourself lol.
Below are the samples I created for my Display Board. WARNING: Lots of photographs to follow, so I will keep the chit chat to a minimum.

The sailing boats are so cute, I had to make a nautical themed card, complete with a life buoy.

Again, some white heat embossed images that have been water coloured. The butterfly has been fussy cut and adhered with mini dimensionals.

The roses on this card are also white heat embossed, on Vellum. Colour has been applied to the back with Stampin Blends.

Also in my box was the Lovely Label Punch. I have sponged a piece of Shimmery White card stock, used a portion to create the panel on the left and the remainder, was punched and used as a base for the roses.

Another Shadow Box Card with the Gold Foil exterior embossed using the new Subtle Embossing Folder. The Medallion image has been Gold heat embossed and portions of the stamped image, fussy cut and layered.

For those that are familiar with my work, will know I struggle to use DSP. I tried incorporating the stunning In Colour DSP pack I received with the cards I was creating, but it just wasn't working.  Then, I had a light bulb moment. I love making Pocket Cards, so what better way to show the DSP.
The next few creations feature the new In Colour DSP Pack & Binder Clips along with products that are carrying over into the new Catalogue.
