Last Batch of Swaps

Welcome back to my blog. Today I am sharing the last batch of my swaps from Onstage Auckland.


A cute Wallet containing a jewelled scissor charm in a matchbook. I have misplaced the label, so am not sure who created this swap. It uses the Crafting Forever and Love What You Do stamp sets, the Share What You Love DSP and the Envelope Punch Board and Pretty Label Punch.


Bernice Collins created this lovely card using the Notes of Kindness All-Inclusive Card Kit. A great way to show how nice these cards are.


Christen Griffith created this stunning Bridge Card using the Love What You Do Stamp Set, the Butterfly Beauty Die Set and Share What You Love DSP (no longer available). The stamps and dies are still available.


Maree McIntosh created this clever card using the Beautiful You Stamp Set and the Stitched Shapes Dies. Both are still available. I love the fresh colour combination.


Stunning card produced by New Zealander Selina Wilson using the Botanical Bliss and Flowing Foutain stamp sets and the Botanical Tags, Stitched Shapes and Layering Circles Dies as well as the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. Selina finished with a splash of colour and Wink of Stella behind the birds and a couple of pearls.


Jo Egan created this pretty card using the Enjoy Life Stamp Set and the Lacy Dynamic Embossing Folder.


The “scissor” Scissor Charm was created by Heidi Bell using the Crafting Forever stamp set, Shrink film and a heat tool.

The cute little bottletop fridge magnet has a map of Taupo, NZ inside and was a giveaway. Like I said, I just loved the generous spirit at Auckland Onstage.

The Kangaroo Scissor Charm was created by Susan Feltrin using the Animal Outing Stamp Set, the Stitched Shapes Dies, Shrink Plastic and heat tool.

So that’s all my swaps shared. Until next event! Thinking of going to Onstage in November but haven’t decided yet.

…And Yet More Swaps from Onstage

Welcome back to my blog. Today I have yet more swaps to share with you.


Western Australian demonstrator, Leah Dale, used the Crafting Forever and Gallery Grunge stamp sets to create this cool card. She has used Stampin’ Blends to add colour, Stitched Shape and Rectangle Dies, Dimensionals and lovely Glitter Enamel Dots to add interest. I love the sentiment.

The products used in this card are all available in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.


Zena Kennedy also used the Crafting Forever Stamp Set to create this Matchbook Wallet containing a small gift, a strip of enamel dots. It is beautifully decorated with DSP . A lovely way to dress up a small gift.


The photo above shows the album closed. A belly band and attached label hold it that way.

Australian Heidi Bell used a variety of supplies to create the Concertina Card shown closed above.

And there’s More Swaps

I promise I’m getting near the end of my supply of swaps from April Onstage Live.


Vickie Kello created the amazing card shown in the photo above using the Sea of Textures Stamp Set and Under the Sea Dies. The card has many layers and lots of sparkle and texture.The envelope, behind the card, has also been stamped. I love all the elements of this card, especially the googly eyes!


The above photo shows the inside of the card and the back of the envelope. Amazing!


Rosie Spezzano, from Balwyn Victoria, created this card using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly Duet punch and the Wonderful Romance stamp set and coordinating Wonderful Floral Dies (sadly the latter stamps & Dies are no longer available).

Rosie also did some lovely sponging on the butterflies and liberally added Wink of Stella for a stunning sparkle.


Kristie Taylor created this cute tiny box to hold the tiny container of Tic Tacs. She used supplies listed in the label in the photo.


Vickie Kello created the beautiful card above using the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set. All the products she has used are still available in the current catalogue.


New Zealander Selina Wilson used the Botanical Bliss and Flowing Fountain stamp sets to create this stunning card. She also used Botanical Tag, Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes Dies and she finished the card off with a splash of colour and liberal use of Wink of Stella to add sparkle, topped off by the use of the Subtle Embossing Folder and a couple of pearls.


Lyn Verity created this gorgeous card using the Magical Mermaid and Sea of Textures stamp sets and the Under the Sea Die Set. She has silver heat embossed some of the weed and used sponge daubers and an aqua pen to create the background colour on the Shimmery White card panel.


I just love this card created by Beryl Crisp using the Dandelion Wishes and Crackle Paint stamps. She has added a silver foil scalloped oval, made with the Layering Oval Dies, to back the greeting, which beautifully balances the silver edged ribbon. All products have been carries over to the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.


Angela Hobson, from Western Australia has used the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set to create this pretty Highland Heather Card. This delightful stamp set and coordinating dies are still available,

…..And More Swaps from Onstage.

I hope you’re not sick of these.  I think they are fantastic.


This lovely little notebook has been covered with black cardstock and decorated with elements from the Geared Up Garage Suite of products. The car is stamped and cut with a die from the Garage Gears Dies Set.

Likewise, the gears have been cut from gold and copper foil using these Dies and the greeting has been heat embossed in copper using a stamp from the set.

I didn’t get a project recipe with this swap so I can’t give credit to the creator but she/he has done a great job. It would make a terrific little gift.


I just love the way Linda Tan has used various elements and colours to bring this card together with so much depth and texture. She has used diecuts from the Birds and Blooms Dies, the Butterfly Duet punch and the Garage Gears Dies set, then added texture strategically with the Garage Gear Dies. She has finished it off with some sponging and used the Dynamic Corregated Embossing Folder, controlled tearing and heat embossed the greeting in Copper.


Jenny Hayward has also used the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set and the Garage Gear Dies to create this great card for the men in our lives.  She has added some Classic Garage DSP and used smooching to achieve the background colours.  She has also used the Gear Dies to create some texture on the Tranquil Tide mat.


Australian Donna Gray has used the Little Elephant Bundle to create this cute baby card.  She has added lots of texture by using circles embossed with the Dynamic Lacy Embossing folder and Starburst punchouts behind them to back the elephants.


Cathy Elliot also used the Little Elephant Bundle and the Dynamic Corregated Embossing Folder and the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create this sweet card.

Once again, that’s it for today and I promise to be back soon with more ideas from all these lovely swaps.

Thanks for stopping by…………………til next time,

More Swaps from Onstage

Welcome back to my blog. I appreciate any comments you care to leave, paticularly on the pics of these swap cards, which I think are just wonderful.


Karen Lincoln used a clever technique to create this stunning card using the Animal Friends Dies. The greeting and line stamp are from the Incredible Like You stamp set.

Karen has stamped the lines in different colours onto Shimmery White card, then when dry, swiped the card with an aqua pen to smear lines and blend colours.


Denise Szabo, from Keysborough, Australia, used the Animal Outing Stamp Set, Animal Expedition DSP , and the Scallop Tag Topper punch to create the large tag.  The smaller circular tag on the keyring was created by stamping and colouring the image on Shrink Paper.  So cute!!



New Zealander Julie Burt created this adorable box decorated with the rabbit from the Fable Friends stamp set and Gingham Gala DSP. Inside were some very delicious pineapple lumps. The box idea came from Linda Parker, UK, No glue tealight box- it is a remarkable little box!


Vicki Pow created this darling coaster using the Fable Friends Stamp Set. The stamped image is adhered to a stitched circle diecut of DSP, attached to a coaster and sealed with modpodge, how clever!

That’s it for today, I’ll be back very soon with more.
