Convention Samples

Hey everyone...

Tonight I thought I'd show you what my upline gave me as a gift at convention. She's a great upline - she gives us hand stamped or hand made items that are always beautiful and inspiring..

Well, you'll see...

Here's what she made with the Big Shot. It's a quilted tag - very beautiful!

She used it to tie the bag of cards closed, but it could easily be used as a Bag Tag, or even a bow for a little girl's hair.

Hey, maybe I need to give it to Haley Beary to wear twined between her ears!

She's sitting right above my computer so I can pet her once in a while...

Here's the first card - closed.

It's a Hinge card.

And here it is, opened up.

The Hinge is the large white brad on the bottom left of the green DSP.

The note inside is a Christmas Card.

Quite clever!

I haven't made one of these, so I may put it on my Challenge list...

Here are a couple more. I like how she used the same items for multiple purposes.

For instance, she's used the Square Scallop die for two of the cards. Then she used the diagonal Texture Plate on two different cards, showing us several ideas for each item.

And here's a close up of the diagonal texture plate on the red & white card.

And here's the last card. I especially liked this one, for some reason - yet I haven't bought any of the pirate stuff...

Hope you enjoyed these! I'm still unpacking my stuff from convention, trying to decide what I'm going to make FIRST!

I have Stamp Club this weekend, and they're going to make the WOW box I showed a month or so ago. Mine was made with DSP from the last catalog, so who knows that theirs will look like - different DSP, different concept!
