Nailed It Sneak Peak – 2017 Occasions catalogue

Okay… so, it’s time to spill the beans. You may have noticed, my blog posts have been a little fewer of late. This is because I’ve been busy working away in the background on a little project for Stampin’ Up!

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Display Stamper for the OnStage Live Event in Brisbane, last week. This was a three day event, where Stampin’ Up! launched the upcoming 2017 Ocassions and Sale-a-Bration catalogues to demonstrators globally. I was pretty stoked to say the least.

I was given two stamps set, a framelit die set, an embossing folder and a packet of embellishments. I’m really looking forward to showing you what I have been creating. These will be sprinkled in upcoming blog posts, so be sure to stay tuned wont you?

I was so happy when I saw the theme of product given to me to play with – “Yay! Guy cards!” I shouted and did a happy dance. I’m surprised you didn’t hear me from whereever you are! LOL!

Introducing: Nail It stamp set and Build It framelit dies

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Nailed It

As soon as I saw these tools I was in heaven. I love how artistically authentic they look, so simple but so real. And of course, the stamps and framelits coordinate beautifully together.

Here I have created a corrugated iron background for them to sit on, which has rusted out and patched up – I’m sure we’ve all seen one of these in days gone by… I used a number of current texture style stamps set and Stampin’ Up!’s own Classic Water Colour inks only. This distressed look is all about technique – applying the right combination of colours using the right method and you can create anything with this distressed look.

I sometimes find social media can hamper my ideas, don’t you? I tend to limit myself on social media sites. So to be able to create and generate my own ideas using these new products was just the breath of fresh air I had been craving. Being able to play with new products before anyone else, was a relief as there was no ideas out there already. IT was GREAT! It was all up to me and my creativity.

I hope you are inspired and looking forward to more.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
