Stamp Review Crew: Flower Patch Edition
We are back with the other half of the projects we made for our display board at convention, plus a few that just did not fit on the board :) We don't usually feature any brand new stamp sets, so this is a special occasion.
And remember, you can always find the blog roll on the StampReviewCrew blog and that the links always take you directly to the posts you are looking for. If you have missed any of our hops, you can go back and hop through them at any time!
 If you are following the blog in order, then you just arrived from Kerry Willard Bray's blog, love her stuff! Or maybe you came from Wendy Weixler's blog? She is a late addition to the hop and there may be a slight glitch in the blog roll this morning :) And I have a few projects to share myself!

This is page one of a two page layout. I wanted a layout with the "headshots" of all of our members on the board. You will notice there are a few "not pictured" names. I had to have a signed photography release form for each of the people pictured in order to use it on the display board.

And this is page two! I love seeing all of those wonderful faces together, don't you?! Now I just can't wait for the opportunity to meet them all in person :) I already know several of them personally, but not all.
  • Stamps: Flower Patch, Back to Basics Alphabet, Epic Alphabet, Skinny Mini Alphabet
  • Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Silver Encore
  • Paper: Sahara Sand, Naturals White, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist
  • Other: MDS Word Bubble punch and e-cutter, Big Shot with Flower Fair framelits, Burlap and Natural Chevron ribbons, Signo white gel pen,Silver Dazzle and Chalk Stampin' marker, dimensionals

How about a quick and easy card. This is another of those cards that popped into my head and into a card in 10 minutes! I really love it when that happens :) This one made it on the display board too.
  • Stamps: Flower Patch
  • Ink: Hello Honey,  Lost Lagoon, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
  • Other: Signo white gel pen, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, dimensionals, sewing machine and thread
The next bunch of projects did not get done in time for the display board, but I was on a roll with this set! I know that I have made these little treat/gift bags before, but they bear repeating. This is a lunch sack folded with the edges adhered to create a front pocket with a bag. First I stamped the sentiment with the borders. Then I masked it off and stamped a variety of flowers, then I added a few Crushed Curry embossed flower centers. I am so excited about this embossing powder, by the way! I have wanted a vibrant yellow embossing powder for a long time :) Actually, this is the second one I made. The first one I made, I dropped an inked up stamp on and ruined it.... oops!

Here is a side view, so you can see the bag part filled, and the fact that an A4 card will fit in the front pocket. This is the third bag I made, and I added a couple other details to this one.

I added some retired Ruffled ribbon and Sweater trim as a handle, and a white strip for the sentiment. This one has a different combo of flowers, which I think I like better.
  • Stamps: Flower Patch, Borderettes
  • Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow, Versamark
  • Paper: Whisper White, brown lunch sack
  • Other: Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Crushed Curry embossing powder, Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Stretch ribbon and White Sweater Trim
I know, this post is getting really long. Hang in there, this is the last project. I love the fun feel of this card! Chevrons are still very popular, and a little ombre effect to go with it.
  • Stamps: Flower Patch, Work of Art
  • Ink: Wild Wasabi, Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Naturals White, Whisper White
  • Other: Big Shot with Flower Flair framelits, Dazzling Details, dimensionals, Signo white gel pen, Wild Wasabi stitched ribbon (retired), sewing machine and thread
 Inside, I added more leaves and a diecut flower to cover up a goofed stamped flower. Sometimes I can fix up a goof :)

I should explain all of the retired ribbon usage. I recently found an amazing buffet at Goodwill that I am now using in my craft room. One of the great things about this buffet is all of the fabulous storage it has. This thing is huge! I will have to show it to you all sometime. I put all of my ribbon in one of the drawers. It is a big drawer, about 3' long and 1½" deep, and it is plump full. In fact, there were 4 rolls and 2 cards of ribbon I just could not get to fit into that drawer. And I now realize that I don't need any more ribbon, at least until I use a bunch of it up! No more hoarding! And then there are the embellishments, and retired stamp sets that I no longer use... anybody want to come do a craft room purge with me?   ;)

Ok, now it is time to head over to the next stop, Nancy Smith!
