To be or not to be.....

....a display stamper... ;-)
Stampin'Up! is currently looking for display stampers for the next OnStage event in Amsterdam. This means you make tons of examples with the new products that are coming. So if you want to apply for this, you have to make a blogpost with the following items:
3 cardfronts, 2 3Dprojects and a lay-out. So that is roughly what I've been making the last days.
And that's why this post is in English ;-)

First: Three cardfronts:

One of the most difficult cards I ever had to make. On my birthday (december 3th), my sweet auntie passed away. For her funeral she had requested that there were no ribbons on flowers, but just beautiful cards.
So I made two cards. This was one of them. It's 13,5x13,5 cm. In the Netherlands this is a much used size for a card.
I used the hostess-set Best Thoughts. I stamped the images on watercolor paper and painted the flower and butterfly with the aquapainters and our inks.
The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree. We are still truly thankfull for all the things she has done for everyone. So that was the perfect sentiment.

Next is a more happy card: I made this for my sweetest friend. Her boyfriend needed a valentinescard, and asked me to make it for her. So I did. I used the Sale-a-Bration stampset What I love. Had real fun with stamping, embossing and some ribbon and a button. Happy about how this card turned out!

And then a happy birthday card. You instantly become happy when you see this card ;-)
I used the It's my party dsp and the Party with cake stampset. Inside there is more, but I will show that later. Off course I had to use some Wink of Stella, enamel dots and some bakerstwine. I really love this suite!
Next comes the lay out.
Well that was quite a challenge. The only scrapbooking I've done lately was with our Project Life collections. But I really wanted a "conventional" lay out for this assignment. So this is it:
Yes. Stampin' like a PRO. Not me, but this is my little big boy David (5 years old) on the pictures. He really knows how everything works when mommy is stamping. And he really loves to help me! And occasionaly he asks me to help him with a card for someone.
This was such an occasion. He wanted a card for his grandma. So we got all the things we needed on the table and made his card.
The jounaling reads:
"You know exactly how everything works. Choosing stamps, choosing the right inkcolors, stamping and of course cleaning everything after the stamping! You really do this like a "pro"! Together we make the card for omi (grandma). You write her name on the envelope yourself! Stamping and crafting together is really the best thing there is! 2015/12/20"

Used materials:
One sheet of Bermuda Bay dsp from the Brights dsp stack, two sheets of vellum. Handheld stapler, Everyday chiq washi tape.
Crushed curry, soft suede, tangerine tango, bermuda bay and basic black ink. Whisper White craft ink, and a little bit embossing powder.
Stampsets: Dots for days, Layered Letters, Larger than Life alphabet and Back to basics alphabet.

(somehow this image keeps turning on its side and I can't get it the right way!! sorry!!!)

Next up is the first 3D item. A sweet little treatbox, just perfect for a small gift of chocolate. I stamped it whith the Butterfly Basics stamps. On the lid I made a little ornament with some punched cardstock and glimmerpaper.

Then the last Item:

A milk carton, that I made using the Giftbag punchboard! Really like this "extra feature" of this punchboard. It makes it even more versatile than it allready is!
I used the Birthday Bouquet dsp (note to self: hoard this before it's gone!!) to make the milkcarton. Then I added the sweet sweet Easter Lamb to decorate the milkcarton. Just a few flowers and pearls, a clothespin and a little bit of sequin trim was needed to decorate this sweet box. 
I've put some eastereggs in it, so let's see who we're going to surprise with this box ;-)

I hope you enjoyed this verrrrrry longgggg and photo-heavy post ;-) Thank you for stopping by!

Happy day!
