Display Stamper Try-Out

Hi stampers!  Well, I'm going to do it, I'm going to try out to be a display stamper at the event in SLC in April.  EEEEEK, that's not very far away at all!!!!  So, this won't be a wordy post, but one filled with pretty pictures :-)  We have to make three cards, two 3-D items, and a scrapbook page so here is what I came up with!

It's hard to see in the photo but I did some stenciling on the DSP and the string on the balloon is our linen thread.  There is sparkle on the clouds with wink of stella as well.  And the sequins are from the February MPP pack, I LOVE those!
I hope two birthday cards isn't a faux pas to make two birthday cards but with the whole #imbringingbirthdaysback movement I don't think it is :-)  And there is so much good stuff to make them with right now!!!!  I've been meaning to use this stencil for a birthday card for a while now so here ya go!
Hey look, it's not a birthday card :-)  It's snowing buckets as I write this post (on March 1st no less, boo) so I needed some sunshine!

 I needed a little something to put the "chirping chick" in that I got Ian for Easter (he's going to love it).  Does this basket look a bit familiar?  It's actually one of our tag a bag boxes.  I made a couple of cuts on either side of the middle and stapled it together in the middle and voila, instant Easter basket.  The picture doesn't show it well but the handle is our burlap ribbon.
This little candy bar holder was made from the smallest envelope liner framelit .  I just adhered the flaps together and then stapled the top underneath the decorations.  I made my flower from our filter paper.    I probably should have gotten a twix or other gold wrapped candy to match the gold embossing but I'd be more likely to eat it then and I don't need it ;-)

And for my scrapbook page I used Project Life because I love it!  I sponged watermelon wonder all over the little white card from the SAB pack and and then used the gold overlay.  My cake was pink and the page matches it so well :-)  I also heat embossed the numbers (eek, don't look at the actual numbers, hehe) to go with the gold overlay.  And then a couple of gold sequins to tie it all in around my journaling (don't critique my awful handwriting either, ok?).  It came together so fast which I LOVE!

Ok, there ya go!  Wish me luck!

Happy stamping!
