Kinda Eclectic

Welcome back to some more samples I made for the convention display boards. I am going to continue with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set today.

For this card I inked up the sun stamp first with Versamark and then Daffodil Delight. After stamping the image on Whisper White card stock I covered it with clear embossing powder and heat embossed. Since now the Daffodil Delight ink is sealed I was able to sponge and brayer right over it.

I love how the red rose on this card really pops. I made it with the Simply Pressed Clay and Blossoms Mold. After the clay had dried I simply colored it with a Real Red marker.

For this card I stamped the butterflies on Vellum card stock and punched them out with the coordinating punch. It is hard to see on the photo but the Tempting Turquoise butterfly is glittered up with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I also added some rhinestones. Can't have enough bling right?

Convention 2014 Display Board Samples

Once again I had the honor of being chosen to create samples for the display boards at Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City last week. I was thrilled to be part of this group of amazingly talented stampers. We had to create 24 samples for the three stamp sets "Kinda Eclectic", "Amazing Birthday" and "Seasonally Scattered" (which will be available in the upcoming Holiday catalog).

I am so excited I can finally share my projects. So in the coming weeks I will post pictures of the samples I created.

I will start off with a card I created for the "Kinda Eclectic" board. Love that stamp set.

The sentiment is stamped with StazOn on a Window sheet. Also the clouds and butterflies are mounted on Window Sheet. Cutting the Window Sheet a little longer than the card base curves the Window Sheet when you tuck the ends under the card stock and gives the card a lot of dimension, almost makes it kind of 3D.
