Eastern Blooms - Dawn's Passion

I know - you've all seen this picture before.  But I needed one more Convention Display Sample Scrapbook Page and I had just gotten back from the Stampin' Up! Bermuda Cruise with my Stampin' around Wheel picture.  So I just had to use it!  It came together pretty fast. 


Supplies Used:  Eastern Blooms & Inspired by Nature stamp sets, Whisper White and Basic Gray Cardstock, Rose Red Patterns DSP, Basic Black & Basic Gray Ink, Flower Fusion Accents & Elements, Vintage Brads.

Flight of the Butterfly - Window

Boy - I wish I had the Scallop Border punch when I made this Flight of the Butterfly Convention Display Sample.   I made it the "old fashion" way using the corner rounder punch to create the scallop border.  Then stamped all of the little flowers in each of the scallops. Then came back through, dotting the flower centers with a Basic Black marker.

The "Window" is created with the 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 Square Punches.

The Butterfly was stamped on vellum, added glitter on the backside, then cut out.

Colors used:  Almost Amythst, Basic Black & Whisper White

Flight of the Butterfly - Gift Set

This Gift Set was so much fun to create.  Not only does it feature the new "Flight of the Buttefly" stamp set, but also features several Pretties Kit items.  I love the Pretties Kit!

FUN FEATURES:  The large Pretties Kit flower features a Lilac Rhinestone Brad in the center.  The hat pin features a Pale Plum dyed Pretties Kit flower and pearl bead.  The Taffeta Ribbon is dyed Sage Shadow.  Colors are Pale Plum, Perfect Plum & Sage Shadow.  Also features the stamp set -Seeing Spots.





Inspired by Nature - Lilac Flowers

This Convention Display sample features the flower image, stamped off.  I like to use that technique for quick stamping.  Plus it gives you dimension without the bulk. 

My favorite way to ink this stamp set is with Stampin' Spots (Lovely Lilac, Chocolate Chip & Old Olive).  The strip behind the flowers was made with Old Olive Poly Twill ribbon (now retired) layered onto 5/8" Chocolate Chip Ribbon - attached to the card with Vintage Brads.

Inspired by Nature - Medallion

I've received several inquiries about this Inspired by Nature Convention Display Sample - regarding the "medallion".  What did you use Dawn?  Well - it's pretty easy.  Just punch out a Scallop Circle Punch.  Then, using your paper snips, cut a "V" into every other scallop.  Viola - cute medallion!


Supplies used:  Inspired by Nature (111656), Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive Cardstock &/or ink.  1 1/4, 1 3/8 & Scallop Circle Punches. Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.

Hidden Garden Rub-On's - Convention Display

This Convention Display sample actually doesn't use any stamp sets at all.  Instead, the focal point is a rub-on image from Stampin' Up! new Hidden Garden rub-on pack (found on pg 178).

TIP:  After transferring the rub-on to Whisper White cardstock, I noticed that the circle dots in the middle, where actually holes.  So I added a little Rose Red ink with a sponge dauber.  Then I punched in out with the 1 1/4" square punch.  Quick & easy focal point!

TIP:  To add color to the Flower Ribbon Slide (from the Style Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit), just add re-inker to Crystal Effects.  Use a toothpick to add to the slide.


Supplies Used:  Hidden Garden Rub-ons, Rose Red, Whisper White, Basic Gray Cardstock, Rose Red Patterns DSP, Rose Red Classic Ink & Reinker, Crystal Effects, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Ticket Corner, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Square Punches, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Sponge Dauber
