June SAS {Stamp-A-Stack}

Hello! I'm sharing the projects made at my SAS yesterday, the theme this month was 'Convention Inspiration'. This first one was inspired by a gorgeous emboss resist card on the demonstrator pin-up board in Melbourne. If anyone recognises it, feel free to let me know who the artist was. Edited to add, this is my inspration card, by the fabulous Sharlene Meyer. I loved the elegant french script background, and the damask stamp from 'Friends 24/7' embossed in clear powder, and brayered over in pear pizazz ink. I have added an eyelet border in black and a finger-bow-a-la-Teneale Williams in Mistletoe taffeta.

This little love note is a case from the last page of the mini catalogue, using the gorgeous 'Strength and Hope' stamps in support of breast cancer research. The original card was in Crumb Cake, but I have chosen Blushing Bride to represent the NBCF ribbon colour. I also added some lace instead of ribbon.

A card similar to this one also featured on the pin-up boards at Convention, well the idea of the tool belt anyway. I have added my own spin on it by sueding the pouch, and the use of silver brads and tearing. I really like this masculine card.

Now, can you tell what these two characters are? Did you guess a butterfly & a peacock? YAY! I know it's a little obscure at first, but I just love how simple they are with a bit of DSP, ribbon and a button! Both made using the large scallop circle die.

Now, the colours on this one are a bit off, the main panel is Crumb Cake although it looks more like Mellow Moss here. This was the fave of the day, and this pleased me as it wasn't a CASE :) I love the bold ribbon ruffles!

Here is me in my new Stampin' Up! tee and scarf! We had a fabulous day of stamp 'n' chatter, thank you ladies for coming along.
