When I was working on these OnStage card swaps, it was a nice change to be using bright colors instead of Fall colors. These 40 cards were created with the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set.
If this card looks vaguely familiar, it is the same layout that I used on this card.
The colors I used are: Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Whisper White and Sahara Sand.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
First Layer: 1" x 5 1/4" Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
Second Layer: 3 3/4" x 5" Sahara Sand Cardstock
Third Layer: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Whisper White Cardstock. These are two-step images. To get variations in the ink color on the floral and leaf images, ink up the image, stamp off once on scratch paper and then on the Whisper White Cardstock. Ink up the coordinating image and press it on the stamped off images. Place the Third Layer inside the Subtle Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot. The slight texture adds a richness to these stamped images.
Pull off the cover of the Wink of Stella. Hold out your left pointer finger and tap the Wink of Stella tube against your finger, while moving around the cardstock. Very small and slightly larger drops of the Wink of Stella add random, eye-catching splatters of shimmer. Let it dry about 30 minutes. Attach to the Second Layer with SNAIL Adhesive.
Fourth Layer (cont.): Use a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Labels Framelit Die through the Big Shot. Attach to the Third Layer with Dimensionals. The final touch is to add three Rhinestone Jewels to this card.

I'm back from OnStage in Orlando. Reality set in when I stepped outside the door of the Minneapolis Airport. Brrr! Capri's, sandals and a light jacket were not the proper clothing to be wearing.
There were 6,000 demonstrators from around the world at the OnStage in Orlando.

This is my team members who were in Orlando.
It was eight days of sunny and warm weather. We attended OnStage events for three and one-half days. The other days, we were tourists. It was a wonderful time away in sunny Florida! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
