About a year ago I was in Amsterdam at OnStage Live. OnStage is an event held every 6 months for Demonstrators around the world to get together and see new product releases. These are definitely one of the highlights of the year, and only open to Demonstrators (both Business Demonstrators and those who signed up just for the discount). We get to play with new products AND we get given new products. This stamp set was the All Attendees Stamp set at OnStage Live last year.
We all felt that this was a really appropriate set to be given in Amsterdam, and for me it was perfect as my husband and I do a huge amount of cycling, as do many of our friends.
I spotted a card very similar this on Pinterest, made by Fiona Bradley in Australia. Her version uses paper hearts, but although I could have punched some using the Cookie Cutter Punch from the Annual Catalogue, I decided to use hearts from the Brights collection of Enamel Shapes.
My first card was quite muted, using our two shades of grey, with the Enamel Shapes providing the pop of colour. The second one has more pop in it, with the Melon Mambo Card Base. I love the combination of hot pink and grey and really like how this turned out. The greeting is from the enourmous (both in size and quantity) Lovely Friends stamp set, which has a fantastic variety of sentiments, both small and huge!
I can’t wait to share all the excitement of OnStage, although we are restricted about what we can share and when we may share it, as soon as I can give you any sneak peaks, I will do so.
