Display Stamper - Easy Events Baby 3-d

This is the first 3-d item I created using Easy Events. I used one of my old button containers to create this cute little baby shower favor. I watercolored the main image once again using my watercolor crayons. Then I wanted the little rubber ducky to have some shine to it so I added some clear embossing powder to it. I covered the container with some DSP, added my image, a bow and a saying and this baby was done! These would be quick to put a bunch together! Happy Stamping!

Display Stamper - Easy Events Baby Card

This way actually the very first card I put together for my submissions and was my favorite of them all!! This one I made with some scraps I had sitting out on my desk .... I seem to do that a lot!! I stamped the main image then added a few more wave lines to make them longer. I watercolored the image with my watercolor crayons, then I darkened a few spots with my markers to get a more textured look. I added a bit of yellow scallops to the back to help tie in the colors, then added the brads and ribbon to pull it all in together. It would be a perfect card as an announcement or really anything baby related. Happy Stamping!!

Display Stamper - Easy Events Clock

I really like this image from Easy Events and at first I had no idea how to use it, I had the image stamped and all colored before I even knew what I was going to do with it. I think it sat on my desk that way for a couple weeks before I finally figured it out. Basically I picked out a few different scraps I had that matched they way I colored it and played with them until I came out with this layout. It's really simple but very cute! Happy Stamping!

Display Stamper - Easy Events More Flowers

Here is a really cheerful birthday card! I'm not one who usually uses such bright colors and it all seemed a little bold for my normal tastes but since your are trying to showcase versatility when creating for the display boards it worked! I think doing these have really help me stretch my creativity! Of course there are a few telltale signature things in this card ... glitter on the flowers (who doesn't put glitter on everything??), my bow (everyone teases me about how "perfect" my bows are) and I always have some sort of embossing on my cards. Happy Stamping!!

Display Stamper - Easy Events Tree

I love this little tree image from the Easy Events set. It can be used for lots of different cards. I kept this card rather simple, but I thought it had a little bit of spunk to it. I cut of a second heart and added a bit of glitter to it then popped it up which was the perfect touch to add. I added a stripe of red on either side of the base to help tie in the red bow to bring it all together. Happy Stamping!!

Display Stamper - Easy Events Flowers

This is a card I made for the display boards using Easy Events. This was by far my favorite set as it is very versatile. This was another card that was on the VIP boards so only VIP's were able to see it. It's pretty simple and a great card to say Hello to a friend. I used my stampin majig to line up the flowers and then I colored them in different shades of pink then added a bit of crystal effects over them and sprinkled a dab of glitter on the centers before it dried. Happy Stamping!!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers 12x12 Page

Scrapbooking was my first paper crafting craft and I still love to work on my albums when I get time, though I rarely share them here. Here is a 12x12 layout I made for the display boards using the Raining Flowers set. I had some pictures of these purple flowers and thought they would be perfect for this page. Since the flowers were purple I kept to the purple theme when creating this page. My favorite part of this page is the part in the photo to the left .... it would make a beautiful stand alone card as well. I just love that style of bow, someone asked how I make these bows and it'll be easier to show you then try to explain it so as soon as things settle a bit I will do a tutorial just don't be surprised if it doesn't happen until October, it's been crazy here. Happy stamping!!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Bracelet

Here is my second 3-d project using Raining Flowers. Just a simple charm bracelet. I stamped three different flowers onto clear shrinky dink paper. Then cut them out then punch a hole in them before shrinking them with my heat gun. I then attached them to a bracelet and added a few buttons that coordinated with the colors. It was super cute and a great conversation piece! Happy Stamping!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Wreath

This was a cute and super simple little project. I just used a mini grapevine wreath and decorated it with some spring colored flowers and some ribbon. After I stamped the flowers out I added some iridescent ice to them to make them sparkle, we all need a bit of sparkle!! Happy Stamping!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Sympathy

Here is the last card from my submission for Raining Flowers. The color combo is a little unusual but really looks stunning in person. I made the three tier bow which really added to the card. The main image is stamp with black staz on then stamped over with versamark so that I could emboss with clear powder. I then sponged the image to make it with pool party to make it pop.

My thoughts and prayer are with those effect by the events on 9/11.

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Flowerpot

This was my favorite card I made using Raining Flowers that I sent in!! Can you believe my hubby helped design it, well not really but I had everything done on this card but the flower pot. I showed it to him and said it was missing something but couldn't figure out what. He suggested stamping a flower pot, since this set didn't have one I figured I could make one out of paper. It was exactly what the card needed!! The flower is embossed and the layered to give dimension. Happy Stamping!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Tulip

This was a pretty simple card but I thought it really stood out. I created the tulip by using the leave stamp from the Raining Flowers set. I slit open the double leaves and added a third to create the tulip. I then layered the image onto a scallop circle I cut using the big shot. The base is Lucky Limeade with a strip of DSP on one side. Then I just added some ribbon, pearls and a sentiment and it was done! Happy Stamping!

Display Boards - Raining Flowers

When I first got the new in colors I immediately loved Wisteria Wonder, mostly because purple is my favorite color. And this was actually a fun color combo! I embossed the Concord Crush piece with the elegant line embossing folder and it really helped pull the whole card together! This would also be another great card to send to a friend just because! I think we forget to do things like that ... or at least for me it seems like I make cards to send for a reason but how nice would it be to just get a card because. Happy Stamping!

ETA: Someone asked if they missed this one on the boards and I forget to mention this one was on the VIP only lounge so you didn't get to see this one on the regular display boards.

Display Boards - Raining Flowers Friend

Well now on to my next set of projects for the convention display boards using the stamp set Raining Flowers.

I am kinda glad I got this set as I don't think I would have ever bought it. I would say flowers are not my style but that wouldn't be exactly true. I think it"s more that I live in a household full of guys so there are not many reasons or chances to use flower based sets. I had a lot of fun with set and probably created some of my best stuff using this set. This card is pretty straight forward but I really like the color combo it's so bright and cheery perfect for sharing with a friend just because! Happy Stamping!

Display Boards - Best Friends Forever

This is the last of my Best Friends Forever display samples and it was my favorite for sure! I used a small embroidery hoop and used my Cherry Cobbler ink pad to paint it. I then used some fabric to cover it. I decorate the bottom right to coordinate. You can't tell in the photos but the hearts are all sparkly with iridescent ice and the flourish is embossed. Happy Stamping!
