Hello everyone and Happy Monday! I am finally feeling better after that darned root canal. :) Today, I'm going to share with you some of the great Loralie samples we had in our booth in Grapevine last weekend. I know first hand that even though you may like the image on the front of the package, when you get it home you may have a terrible time creating with it. It's happened to me before. When I am shopping, especially at conventions, I always try to take photos of their samples (where allowed) so that I can refer back to them when I'm ready to work with what I purchased.
Anyway, here's some of the inspiration we had to offer...
This card was made using the Sassy Stamper stamp. If you are like me, this would be a GREAT one to have in your stash. It would be great for all your crafty friends' birthdays and such...a gift card for their favorite craft store tucked inside. Perfect! This image is great for either coloring OR paper piecing!
This one was one of my favorites! Susan was actually wearing this on her apron as a pin. They stamped and colored the flower multiple times then layered them together with dimensional adhesives. Next, they sandwiched the flower between two pieces of black tulle, sprinkled in a few sequin and machine stitched around the flower and trimmed off the excess. Isn't if adorable?! Imagine this flower only instead of adding the tulle, cover it with Crystal Lacquer and put it in your hair. Or better yet, make two and add them to your favorite flip flops!! How awesome is that?!
This is great, don't you think?! That butterfly is one of the brand new stamps that is part of Loralie's 2011 Winter CHA release! Love it! And you can see, this really woulnd't take all that long to make either. Stamp, color and cut your butterfly then cut out your sentiment using your favorite die cut tool. Easy peasy! This little butterfly sold out F.A.S.T. but we should have it back in stock online really soon.
These images are really out of my comfort zone, however, I am determined to show that they can be used for conventional cards as well. Eva has a great sample on the Scrap-Mart blog today as well.
