Display Samples - Watermelon Wonder

Hi stampers!  I'm back with my final batch of display samples or stamples as I've been known to call them!  But first I just wanted to say what a huge honor it was to be chosen to do this and work along side some wickedly talented artists!  Here we all (I hope all of us) while setting up the boards and a big thanks to Linda Heller for the picture!  How amazing do those boards look back there????  Gah!!!!

And here's a shout out to all of the stampers who were at the local events!  They may not be in the picture but they created some awesome stuff as well!  If you missed it on my previous post, you can find a joint Pinterest board with our samples HERE which includes our international friends!

So, watermelon wonder is our color for the day.  I resisted this color for quite a while but earlier this year I started to warm up to it and utilize it more!  My first project uses some new DSP from the affectionally yours suite.   This paper has kind of soft prints on one side and more bold designs on the other and then two sheets are metallic but we'll get to those later on.  Again, this card is a simple sketch but I wanted to make sure most of my projects were easy to reproduce.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Endless thanks
Paper:  Whisper white, daffodil delight, night of navy, watermelon wonder, affectionally yours specialty DSP
Ink:  Night of navy, watermelon wonder
Accessories:  Metallic foil doilies, watermelon wonder 5/8" min striped ribbon

Next up is a little 3D pouch that I created with one of the fun copper metallic prints.  I just found a template online and printed it out then traced it on the back of the paper (the foil prints are only one sided) and cut it out.  There are TONS of templates if you search google or Pinterest!  The doily is actually one of the metallic ones just turned backwards so that the white from the back side shows.  You can see how shiny that paper is near the bottom.  It's very pretty!  This pouch would hold a gift card or maybe a sweet treat ;-)

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Sunburst sayings
Paper:  Watermelon wonder, 2015-2017 in color DSP stack, affectionally yours specialty DSP
Ink: Watermelon wonder
Accessories:  Foil metallic doilies, linen thread, watermelon wonder 5/8" min striped ribbon

I have one more scrap page for you and I have to apologize for a few reasons here.  Sadly, it is the same layout as my other page but I saved these until the last minute and didn't know that my Selphy photo printer only came with ink for FIVE photos initially so I only had two photos printed out and no time to get more ink or get more photos printed.  I had planned a 12 x 12 with this layout and at least three pictures but that  didn't pan out which may have been a good thing since the boards were REALLY full of amazing projects :-)  This page is 8 x 8.  And also, I need to apologize for totally spacing out and using the wrong Project Life kit on this project.  Somehow I got totally messed up and thought the kit from the Occasions catalog was carrying over when if fact it was not.  I'm so sorry!  But, you could swap in elements from the one that did so you get the idea I suppose ;-)  The letters are from the accessory kit as well as the banners which I cut from cards and the journal card.  I hope I'm not fired!!!!  But I wanted to show that you can still do traditional scrapbooking with Project Life!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  None!
Paper: Basic black, tempting turquoise, daffodil delight, watermelon wonder
Ink:  Daffodil delight
Accessories:  Memories in the making project life kit and accessory kit (NOT carrying over from Occasions catalog to the annual catalog, sorry again), sunburst thinlit

And finally my favorite watermelon project.  The colors turned out a little bright in this photo but it is watermelon wonder.  And this paper is gorgeous!  I normally shy away from night of navy but it's so pretty here!  This is the other page of specialty paper and has copper accents.  I mixed my metallics with the doily which was scary (hehe) but totally worked!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Greatest greetings
Paper:  Night of navy, watermelon wonder, affectionally yours specialty DSP
Ink: Watermelon wonder
Accessories:  Metallic foil doilies, watermelon wonder 5/8" min striped ribbon

And there you have it!  All five groups of my display samples or stamples;-)  I hope you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed creating them and sharing them with you!  And don't forget to check out the Pinterest board for the display stampers!

And please come back and visit often!  I'm going to be trying some new things to try soon and you won't want to miss it!

Happy stamping!

  1. Beautiful samples. I live in copper country and am looking forward to getting my hands on this DSP.


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
