Display Stamples - Tip Top Taupe

Hi stampers!  So it's back to reality for me and I had a big diaper mess to clean up this morning to prove it...this kid!  LOL!  He felt the need to properly welcome me back I guess.  He truly has super powers when it comes to what he does in (and out of) his diapers ;-)

Anyway, starting at 2pm today we can FINALLY share information and pictures from OnStage...or convention as I still call it!  So, make sure you check my business FB page and Instagram if you're  follower!  I'll of course be sharing things here too!   If you missed some of my posts, I was a display stamper!  I don't have pictures of the full boards just yet but I'm working on it.  I figured since we were assigned either old or new in colors that I'd do 5 posts, one with each color.  And then later this week, I'll post more personal stuff and pictures of people and other fun stuff.  Sound like a plan?

So today I'm going to show you my tip top taupe stamples (remember a few years ago I kept calling display samples stamples, lol).  For some reason, this color was the hardest for me.  Probably because it's kind of a neutral so there are lot of directions I could have taken.  So here we go!

I know you want to see new stuff so I'll start with a new set that I got to work with.  I have to say, I'm not the best at coloring so what did they send?  TWO line art sets, lol!  I hope my coloring is acceptable!  Feel free to click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.  I can't get as close as I'd like with the stand.  We actually only make card fronts so I have to stand them up somehow ;-)  I edited the others a bit closer but I'm not sure how I like half the stand edited out....Anyway, this set has the swing and then a bunch of stuff you can put on and around it like the kitty.  I actually fussy cut everything out including the swing here.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Sitting here (new)
Paper:  Very vanilla, tip top taupe
Ink: Stazon, pool party, delightful dijon, watermelon wonder, mint macaron
Accessories:  None!

Next up is a new hostess set so you need to host a party to get in on this one!  It's totally not my style but I think people may like it ;-)  I know a lot of people like hedgehogs and....

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Love you lots (new hostess)
Paper:  Whisper white, blushing bride, tip top taupe, watercolor paper, in color DSP
Ink: Stazon, mint macaron, watermelon wonder, tip top taupe
Accessories:  Lots of labels framelits, metallic foil doilies, softly falling EF, gold satin ribbon

I watercolored these little guys.  And you'll see a lot of gold doilies this week.  We all know I like them AND they were one of the few accessories I knew were safe ;-)

Ok, moving onto my third project which I used carry over items plus some pretty new ribbon!  The ribbon is in the older set of in colors and it's very pretty!  Hardwood looks great with the taupe color!  I stamped the wreath on mint macaron and then added the accent stamping with cucumber crush

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Wondrous wreath, greatest greetings, hardwood background
Paper:  Very vanilla, blushing bride, cucumber crush tip top taupe
Ink: Stazon, pool party, delightful dijon, watermelon wonder, mint macaron
Accessories:  Wonderful wreath framelits, basic pearls, linen thread, 5/8" mini striped ribbon

And for my last taupe project which is probably my favorite.  It's simple and easy and I really love it. Taupe makes a great fall color!  And many of you will be happy to see from my splatters that gorgeous grunge is safe ;-)  I'm also happy the acorns are coming back!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Acorny thank you, gorgeous grunge
Paper:  Very vanilla, cajun craze, tip top taupe
Ink: Cajun craze, tip top taupe
Accessories:  Acorn punch, metallic foil doilies, 5/8" mini striped ribbon, linen thread

And there you have it! My first four projects.  Make sure to come back this week to see the remaining 16!  And be on the lookout for my other display stamping friends to be posting theirs!

If you'd like a copy of the new catalog when it comes out please let me know!

Happy stamping!


  1. I think those hedgehogs are just SO cute!! What a great set of display samples. (It's catching, I started writing "stamples"!!!).

  2. The last one is definitely my favorite and feels more like you and your style. I love that you had the opportunity to be a display stamper again. (Meg M.)

  3. Fabulous stamples! I don't do "cute" but already have my eye on that hostess set with the hedgehogs!


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
