Stampin’ UP! Nature’s Golden Afternoon and some Sneak Peeks From OnStage 2019!

Good morning!  It’s Me.  From OnStage in Charlotte!  In just a few hours, I will be getting hooked up to a microphone and stepping out to introduce a roomful of fellow demonstrators to a brand spanking new Product Line from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

I am excited and also terrified to my toes.

I hope I can remember the names of the stamp set – and dies – and DSP…

Have I mentioned….gulp!!!

So – let’s do something I know for certain sure I CAN do – share a fun card with my peeps! 🙂

This one goes back to the outgoing 2018-2019 Annual Catalog for some Nature’s Poem DSP (which will disappear at the end of May!) and it’s paired up with the so pretty Golden Afternoon stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  Take a look-see:

The fun layout for this one comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

I started with the pretty Nature’s Poem DSP in the woodgrain design and matted it on Grapefruit Grove for the card front.  Then I took another piece – the Tranquil Tide design – and cut it into three equal sized pieces.   I also matted that on Grapefruit Grove – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a scalloped circle from Grapefruit Grove card stock using a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Over that I adhered a Colored Doily (White side up!) with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment circle comes courtesy of the Golden Afternoon stamp set.  I first inked the pretty tree image in Soft Suede and stamped it off once, then stamped it on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus – I think that sorta ought to go without saying anymore, huh?? 🙂  Over that, in Tranquil Tide, I added the sentiment.  Since I was using the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp it a couple of times to get a good dark image.

I cut that out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die (these are – whaaaa! – sold out and not going to be replaced.  So…if you don’t have this set, you can cut the sentiment out with a Circles Layering Framelits die.  Add some “faux stitches” with a Journaling Pen if you like! 🙂 ).  I adhered the sentiment onto the doily with Liquid Glue.

Using the wonderful Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut several Whisper White branches and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the matted sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and a Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine bow and the card front was done!

For the inside, I used my Stamparatus and stamped the Golden Afternoon tree in stamped-off-TWICE Soft Suede on a Whisper White mat, then added a second sentiment in Tranquil Tide.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Grapefruit Grove mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Golden Afternoon tree in full strength Soft Suede on the front…

…and more of the Nature’s Poem DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Grab this Golden Afternoon stamp set, y’all!  And some Nature’s Poem DSP – the retiring list will come out in a couple of days and this DSP is sure to be on it – and you don’t want to miss it!  I hope you like!

Speaking of retiring – the 2017-2019 In Colors (like…Lemon Lime Twist and the Tranquil Tide I used in this card!) will also leave us soon!  If you don’t have card stock and ink refills in your faves – get them soon!  Those’ll go like hotcakes when the Retiring List is officially released.  Scroll on down to see all the other 2017-2019 In Color goodies that you need to get stocked up on SOON!

News from CenterStage and the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Take a look-see at the cover of the new catalog!

I FINALLY made it to Charlotte last evening after a long day (including a weather divert to Raleigh-Durham!) and barely made it in time for dinner at CenterStage!   But – I DID get there, and was able to pick up a few gifts from the new catalog…

…and pose with Sue and Amy to commemorate the evening!

Watch here and on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for more Sneak Peeks throughout the next couple of days!

The Retiring List Will Be Released Next Week!

Hard as it is to believe, the 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog is reaching retirement age!  That’s right….ALREADY!  On 15 April at 1pm Mountain Time, we’ll get a look at the list of favorites from that and the 2019 Occasions Catalog!  While we don’t know everything that will be on the list…we DO know that the 2018-2019 In Colors WILL be leaving us for certain sure!

Past experience tells us that once this list becomes “official” – some things…like ink pads, refills and card stock! – go off the shelves super fast!  So this would be a great time to stock up on your favorite colors!!

  10. Kate

    Hmmm…of course, I meant OF course. Sheesh 😕

  11. Janice M

    Hi Mary,
    I was thinking since you are working in MD, you would have gone to the Atlantic City, NJ OnStage today and I would have had the chance to meet you. I see by your post, you are in NC; maybe next time, though. This was my first event, and there was a lot of excitement there. I am sure your presentation was great!

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Janice – yes, it would have been much closer and easier to get to, for sure! But when I signed up for OnStage AND committed to the stage presentation, I was supposed to have been at home in Atlanta. So…there you have it! Would like to have met you! 🙁 Hope you had a WONDERFUL FIRST EVENT!!! Whoo-hoo for you!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. Kathy Fennell

    As always Mary a very pretty card! Love the sneak peeks of the new product, looks like a lot of fun awaits. Now where is the video of your presentation my friend! 🙂 Enjoy the rest of On Stage……

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – I know Amy took video. I suspect it’ll make an appearance at some point! Thanks, Kathy – the new catty is pretty awesome! 🙂

  13. Heather Heroldt

    Such a lovely card – I think this is the best use of a doily I have ever seen! So clever to layer it over a scallop circle! Perfect! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you so much, Heather – appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
