My Presenter Projects at OnStage Quebec Canada!

WARNING: LOTS AND LOTS OF PHOTOS!
New Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog Products!



Months ago, I had the pleasure of being asked to be a presenter at the Quebec City, Canada Stampin' Up! OnStage event. I had accepted and was sent some new upcoming products to play with...how fun! The suite of products used on all of these projects are from the Perennial Essence Suite to include:
  • Floral Essence Stamp Set
  • Perennial Flower Punch
  • Perennial Essence Designer Paper
  • Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock
  • Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon
  • Perennial Essence Floral Centers
So my instructions for projects I would be presenting, was to create three projects (one each) for the Beginner, Casual and Avid Stamper. Do you know what category you would fit in? First let me give you a timeline of what took place.

I created all of my projects for my presentation and a few weeks before Dave and I were to travel to Quebec City, Dave was diagnosed with bone cancer and started treatments the week before we were due to travel. His treatment went well but I decided not to risk traveling for two reasons. I didn't want him around such a large group of people so I could keep him healthy and some of the side effects of the immunotherapy is fatigue and weakness. He's been resting a lot. I couldn't see myself doing all the driving for six hours. So to make a long story short, I decided to cancel our travel plans and mailed my projects to a fellow Maine demonstrator Sherri Everett, who took them with her to Quebec and Stampin' Up! had someone from their training department do my presentation for me. It all worked out! We had some great teamwork to get it done!

My first card would be a card that a Beginner Stamper could tackle:


The project includes "stamp, ink & paper = SIP". This would also be considered a #simplestamping project. The card has two layers on the front and the photo below shows you the inside of the card:


Next up, I stepped it up a notch for the Casual Stamper. The Casual Stamper likes to "CASE" projects or "copy and share everything". Sometimes with a little bit of guidance. This card uses the same colors but I added dimension by adding mult-layered flowers that were cut with a coordinating punch. Notice the cute centers of the flowers too? Those are the new embellishments I listed above. Isn't this card gorgeous?


And this is the inside of the card:



The last of my three projects is for the Avid Stamper. Now the Avid Stamper is someone who loves to collect products and loves to experiment using those products. This is the category that most of us seasoned stamper would fit in. We want it all! I used all of the products in this suite to complete a card and a coordinating envelope with a belly-band:


First let's look at the card. As you can see I have added lots and lots of layers and if you look at the bow off to the side, it unties to reveal a fancy card fold:


This card fold is called a Corner Pop-Up Card Fold. In order for the card to fold flat, you have to keep the layers on the inside flat:


Next up is the coordinating envelope with the belly-band that slides off:





I hope you loved my projects. I did hear back from lots of demonstrators that they loved the presentation. I'll have more cards to show you that I also created for OnStage for the display boards so stay tuned! And only about 7 more weeks and you'll be able to order these products!



Don't forget that I am offering you a FREE SHIPPING COUPON with a $50 order in April to be used in May! Thanks to all of you that have ordered from me already! I appreciate your orders!

Maine Stampers Swap at Quebec Canada OnStage!



I have one last swap to show you from OnStage Quebec Canada. This time I hosted the swap and it was with Maine Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. There were 12 of us participating in this swap. I used the Crafting Forever stamp set and fussy-cut all of the images you see!


Some of you know that I went to school for art and that I also paint (when I can find the time), so this stamp set is one of my favorites. I love the little container holding all of the paint brushes. I used Stampin' Blends Markers to color all of the images:


Notice the background that I stamped in Smoky Slate Ink? The background image is from the Gallery Grunge stamp set and I haven't had the chance to use it much. It looks great doesn't it? And below is a photo of the coloring up close:



Tomorrow I'll be showing you some brand new products that I got the chance to work with before OnStage. I have so many projects that I'll have to feature them a few days at a time. I'll be showing the swaps I received on my Debbie's Designs Facebook page also as a Live Video. Stay tuned!

Place an order during the month of April and I'll send you a card kit like this one (no stamped images):





 And earn a free shipping coupon to use in May with your $50 order in April!

April Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop and a NEW BUNDLE!



Welcome to an April Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! I have some good news to tell you also! A few weeks ago, I earned to 2020 Incentive Trip to Maui Hawaii....woohoo!

This month, we are all showing you Sneak Peeks from the upcoming Annual Catalog that debuts in June. What I am showing you today is one of the Make & Takes that demonstrators created during OnStage this past weekend. Everything was pre-cut for us. You can see the layers below along with the completed card:



When we attend an OnStage event and have Make & Takes to complete, each packet contains everything you need plus a photo of the project like you see here:


The Make & Takes are made to be quick to assemble so we can keep going with other aspects of the event. The completed projects also offer us samples to take home and show our customers through live events or to use on social media platforms. The suite of products used on this card are from the Perennial Essence Suite to include:
  • Floral Essence Stamp Set
  • Perennial Flower Punch
  • Perennial Essence Designer Paper
  • Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock
  • Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon
  • Perennial Essence Floral Centers
As customers, you'll be able to purchase these products on June 1st. I have three more photos of the completed card and then I'll guide you to the next person in the blog hop today!





I hope you enjoyed my project for today. You are currently visiting Debbie Henderson and you can now click on the name below me to continue on with the hop. Have a great day!

Quebec Canada OnStage More Swaps!



As promised yesterday, I am showing you Swap #2 from Quebec OnStage which was a Stampin' Up! event over the past weekend. If you missed yesterday's post, you can click on "HOME" at the top of my page so you can scroll down to view it.

The swap card from today uses the P.S. You're The Best stamp set. I even added some notebook paper that adds a little bit of interest!


I love the rounded corners I added to the bottom of the card. If you look closely, you'll also be able to see the embossing on the Pineapple Punch Cardstock layer. I used the Subtle Embossing Folder and yes, it is subtle. Just enough to make it perfect!


All of the typewriter and flower images were stamped using Memento Black Ink and colored with Blends Markers. I then hand-cut all of the images with my Paper Snips. If you do not own a pair of our Paper Snips, you are missing out! Lots of times, my customers tell me they have a hard time with fussy-cutting. Once they try our scissors, they totally understand how much easier the cutting is!


The Heart Epoxy Droplets that I used on the notebook paper are really not yellow! They come clear and I colored them with my Blends Marker! Isn't that neat! Because Blends Markers are alchol-based, anything that is non-porous takes the color so well!

Quebec Canada OnStage Swaps!



This past weekend, Stampin' Up! hosted their twice-a-year OnStage Event which is an event open to all demonstrators from all over the world. These events are always hosted in April & November. There are several locations to pick from. I was actually registered to attend the one in Quebec City Canada but could not attend due to my hubby's new cancer diagnosis. I have some GREAT demonstrator friends and because I was all ready to attend, I asked Tracey Roy who is also from Maine, if I could mail her my swap cards for the swaps I had signed up for, so she could swap the cards for me. You'll be seeing a few more days of swaps because I had signed up to participate in three of them.

The cards from today's post are from Swap #1:


I made 10 cards using this layout and used the following Stampin' Up! products:



You can see how nicely the Dot-To-Dot Embossing looks on layer two. Each of the flower and stem images were all stamped and hand-cut using my Paper Snips. It really didn't take me that long to cut for ten cards. I sure did miss not having dies for these images though!



The next two photos will show you more detailed views of my layers and elements used:




If you come back tomorrow, I'll show you cards from Swap #2 and I promise that one is equally pretty! Swaps are fun to participate in because you get such an assortment of cards back. I'll be showing you those, once I receive my package from Tracey!


Will you be placing an order today? If so, please use the monthly hostess code when prompted at checkout to earn free products from me. If your order is $150 of more, no need to add the code so you can earn your own hostess rewards! Thank you so much for supporting a small business owner!
