Convention Scraps put to use

Hello Friday


At the South Pacific Convention in Melbourne during May we created some awesome Make’n’Takes with our new stamp sets and gorgeous new products.

So as well as the all finished projects I had to bring home, I also had a few samples, punched shapes, left over stamped images and scraps of unused cardstock and DSP to add to the luggage. Not wanting to waste any of these precious bits and pieces, I decided to turn them into a few more cards to highlight their features.

First up I teamed the Blackberry Bliss “LOVE” up with some Amazing Birthday offcuts in Tangelo Tango and added a spare Lost Lagoon butterfly. I love the way the sentiment is the feature of the card. When I had my catalogue launch I used this word but with a different colour combo and composition. (Check back next week for catty launch pictures.) Dimensionals and Pearls made the card pop! The dotty scraps look like a heavy washi tape but are stamped images.


Also left over from the Amazing Birthday card set and box was a little DSP from the Flowerpot series which I stamped with the Back to Basics photo-polymer alphabet. I teamed this with one of my coloured I Like You flowers and the star stamp from Kinda Eclectic set stamped in black. I think this is going to be one of my favourite new sets! A star punched from Gold Glimmer Paper gave my Amazing You card a little sparkle.

It is another cool set that has sentiments and some floral stamps. For my Hello There card I used the circle stamp to create the background below. There’s another Tangelo Twist DSP scrap & a Lost Lagoon butterfly as embellishments as well as a few flowers I had punched out using one of the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

For the last card made from my Convention Scraps, I highlighted my second blendabilities sample by cutting the cardstock into a triangle shape and mounting it on a black triangle. Another sentiment from the Hello There stamp set goes so well with the coloured flower. The Tangelo Twist ribbon was from another of our Make’N’Takes and Ties everything together!

It was fun to see what I could create with the little bits and pieces I brought home from Convention. They gave me some cute samples featuring new products to share alongside my Convention goodies before the new catalogue was launched.

Until next time.Logo 72pt
