OnStage Live Swaps using Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up!

Mini Treat Bag Swaps made for OnStage Live using Gorgeous Grunge and Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up!

Well I’m back from Brussels and OnStage Live! So now I can share the swaps I made using Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up! I created mini treat bags using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and white envelope paper from the Neutrals envelope paper collection. I based the design on the Thank You card I created a while back using Lighthearted Leaves teamed up with Gorgeous Grunge.

I had a fantastic time in Brussels! I loved the new format for the Stampin’ Up! event, formerly known as convention. There were lots of fabulous, gorgeous new products to see, which I’m sure you will love! I can’t show you them just yet as there are still some events going on, but I will give you a sneak peek soon.

Let me show you my swaps before I go off on a tangent!

I made 40 of them – 20 in each colour. Which one do you prefer?

This one uses Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral. I stamped the main leaf in Calypso Coral card using Calypso Coral ink, before adding highlights with a white gel pen.

This one is stamped in Pool Party, Island Indigo and Night of Navy. I’ve never used Night of Navy much before, but seem to be liking it more and more. This one is my favourite. I cut the leaves out using the Leaflets Framelits.

I also filled the treat bags with Hot Chocolate powder, a few chocolate chips and mini marshmallows!

The Bedlam Brothers kept buzzing around the bags with the chocolate chips and marshmallows in prior to me getting round to making my swaps. They were very concerned there wouldn’t be enough left for them, so I made them up a bag each and I will make them a Christmas themed treat bag to put them in! 🙂

Little monkeys – they did miss me whilst I was away and I got lots of cuddles when I got back!

Well I hope you like my swaps. If you like the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set, be sure to order it now as it will be gone by the end of December. The full list of retiring products is here, so be sure to take a look and order the items you want before it’s too late.

Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #GDP006 – Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up!

Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #GDP006 – Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up!

I’ve been itching to play around with the Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up! again. I know, I know, I only posted a card using it on Monday! I’m on catch up! I had so many ideas waiting for this stamp set to arrive. I scribbled (literally) some of them down and now I’m trying to decipher what I wrote/sketched out! Lol! Luckily the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #GDP006 has provided the perfect opportunity for me. I instantly thought of this set when I saw the sketch on Monday. I snatched a moment yesterday to play – this was my first idea…..

Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator Tracy May Lighthearted Leaves Smoky #GDP006

I wasn’t really sure I liked it though. I thought it needed to be more colourful but in a muted way! So I tried this….

Now I really like the first one and I can’t put my finger on why! It’s bugging me a bit! I think I will do the Smoky Slate version in my class this month. Or maybe I’ll try it in Real Red (just a thought). What do you think? Which one do you prefer? Or what colour would you try?

Don’t forget about this week’s deals. The number of items has been limited for a period to avoid backlog situations from arising. Still some good deals to be had though! And funnily enough I was planning on making a card with Six Sided Sampler as I haven’t used it in a fair while!

I completely overlooked Lighthearted Leaves from Stampin’ Up! when I first got the new Autumn/Winter catalogue back in August. I immediately zoned in on all the Christmas items and ignored everything else. Then I kept seeing wonderful cards on Pinterest, with all the Autumn stamps and accessories, and so I went back to the catalogue and had a really good look through it again. It’s amazing how much I hadn’t seen! Needless to say I had to place another order – oops! 🙂

We don’t do Thanks Giving in the UK, but I thought this sentiment could actually be used here anyway. Not exactly an autumnal colour scheme, but I love it! What do you think?
