Card Swaps at OnStage Live!

The focus of today’s post is my swap cards for the OnStage Live Event in Orlando, FL this past week.

This was a three day event and a big celebration of Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Birthday. It was super fun and I have tons of pictures and lots to share! I’ll be sharing a bit at a time, starting with my card swaps.

I brought two card designs for my swaps. Here’s my pile of swap cards that feature the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper with a fun fold.

I created three different versions of this card design so I’d be able to use all the patterns in this designer paper pack.

Here are the three versions:

Here’s a close up of one of the versions of this swap:

I’ve actually recreated this fun fold design with three different designer paper packs.

In addition to todays card swaps, I have a Christmas version that uses the Joyous Noel DSP and another one that features the Tropical Escape DSP. There’s also a video tutorial ahead if you’d like to see how this card is put together.

  • Click HERE to check out my design made with the Tropical Escape DSP.
  • Click HERE to check out my design made with the Joyous Noel DSP. The video tutorial can be found in that blog post! By the way, this DSP has been discontinued, as Stampin’ Up! couldn’t keep up with the crazy demand for it! So sad!

Both of these posts include dimensions and details to recreate this card!

My second card swaps have a Winter / Holiday theme and feature the Bokeh Dots Stamp Set and Beautiful Blizzard Bundle.

It was one of the cards featured at my recent Winter/Holiday Cards Stamp-a-Stack. This class was part of my Creative Escape Day Event in October.

These card swaps were super easy to make. I’ll be sharing a video tutorial soon with some awesome tips you won’t want to miss!

I honestly love so much about this card from the images, colors, snowflakes etc but my favorite thing is the sentiment! I want to send this sentiment out to all the people I love the most in the world!
