Here are the three cards I made and submitted. They are not 100% Stampin' Up! products.
Happy Birthday - 3rd Place
The stamps I used are from Heartfelt Creations. I fell in love with them and had to have them. I bought the flower and pocket stamps at the Scrapbook Expo last year. They also have a matching die for the flowers. Of course, I had to get the die too! I don't know where I got the "denim" paper. It was in my stash and was perfect for this card. To accent the flowers, I sponged the edges with Soft Suede Ink and spritzed them with Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz. And of course, I had to add rhinestones.
Thinking of You - Award of Merit
To create the "fabric" on the chair I did the following - stamped the chair in black on the cardstock. Then I stamped the chair in black on the floral patterned DSP. Then I cut out the floral "fabric" and adhered it on to the chair. I love this technique.
Your My Type of Friend - Award of Merit
I love this card too!! I wanted a shabby chic look and lots of embellishments. This card just evolved when I sat down to make it. The cardstock and DSP is Stampin' Up!. The stamp set and greeting are Hero Arts. I sponged the rule lined DSP and the typewriter with Tim Holtz Distress Ink called Antique Linen. I love the bling, pearls, hat pin with tiny flowers.....need I say more?
Apart from my entries on display at the California State Fair, my nieces will have entries on display. Isabelle won first place and third place for two scrapbook divisions. Sophia won first place for two scrapbook divisions. So happy for them!
The California State Fair starts July 21. If you are in the Northern California area, stop by the fair and check out all the great exhibits.
