Convention Displays...

It really was fun being able to design some projects for convention display boards. It was a fabulous challenge, and hopefully I will get to do it again one of these years. :) Here is a big sign that was right before you saw the displays. It was a surprise to see this, since I didn't know they were doing it. I circled my name so you could see it. :)

And here a few of the cards I made...
I really love this color combo. This card was fun. I actually did a lot of embossing on my projects...because I felt that would make things show up better when they were hanging on the display boards. Here is a close-up of the card...

This image is from the "Sweet Season" stamp set. I stamped it twice in Real Red and punched one out with the Scallop Circle punch and one with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Then I layered a 1 3/8" Real Red circle in between. I love the look that this gives. Too much fun. Then I just inked up the saying stamp with a Chocolate Chip marker so I just got the part I wanted.
On to another card... This card uses the "Hello Again" stamp set. The images in this set are small, and so I decided I would make my own Designer Paper. :) That was one of the major challenges for me in making these samples. I had VERY limited Designer Series Paper to use because I could use nothing that had last year's In Color's. Which was practically every one. :) And I LOVE Designer Paper. SO....I made my own. Here is a close-up...
I put some textured card stock on the bottom (I LOVE the detail that adds to any project!) and again embossed the "celebrate you" phrase. I also love those jumbo brads...they are the 5/16" size. I put one in the center of the flower and then 2 more up on the top left corner. Love them. This card is cuter in real life, but hope you enjoy!

Thanks for visiting!
