Paper Adventures Team Blog November- On Stage

Paper Adventures Header

Hello everybody and welcome to my first blog post after my fabulous holiday, we had an amazing time and now I am back and am back in my craft room doing what I love.

A couple of weeks ago Stampin’ Up held their On Stage Local event in Perth which is only a two hour drive from our home town of  Bunbury.  This event was to launch the 2020 mini catalogue which showcases a whole new range of products, I can see my credit card groaning already.  It was an event not to be missed by our team so those of us who were able made a weekend of it and had a wonderful time catching up with other demonstrators and sharing our love of Stampin’ Up.

The theme for our November blog is “On Stage” where we get to create a design using some of the new products that we received at “On Stage”.  A huge welcome to our guest designer, Shannon Kissane, I know that you are going to love her projects. I have chosen to use the Painted Poppies stamp set that I received as my prize patrol, this was very symbolic to me as Australia had commemorated Rememberance Day only a few days before.

The card that I have made is a Dioramo, or Shadow box card. This card is a 3D card that is so easy to make but very effective.  There are quite a posts on Pinterest that will show you how to make it in various different sizes.  For this card I used Poppy Parade cardstock and the soon to be available Peaceful Poppies DSP. Follow this link if you would like to watch how Ruth created this card.

I decided to add a matching gift bag and tag using Whisper White and Poppy Parade cardstock and the matching Peaceful Poppies DSP.  The bag was made using a tutorial from Sam Hammond at Pootles, Sam is very generous in sharing all of her measurements.

  1. These are so pretty (can’t wait to get my hands on that DSP). I especially love the little gift bag and tag – I love how beautiful DSP can dress up something as simple as a little gift bag and make it so WOW. The diorama card is a perfect choice for poppies – it looks like you’re looking through a window onto a field. 🙂 Siobhan.


  2. This DSP is definitely on my list in the new year, I love what you have created with it. The Diorama card is amazing, I will be off to try one this weekend I think, you have given me lots of ideas here. Thanks for sharing


  3. I love this Sheila! I love the way you have made this card and little bag. I must try this shadow box card soon. These poppies and DSP are so lovely. I can’t wait to see more made with this beautiful set. Mandy xx
