Stamp Review Crew: Flower Patch

SRC-Flower-Patch-bannerWoo-hoo, it’s time for another blog hop with my Stamp Review Crew peeps!  It was fun (and also stressful) to create items for our display board at convention last month, and then such a thrill to see the board so beautifully put together.  This was one of two sets we chose to use.

(Have you just arrived from Yapha’s blog?  If not — or you’re lost — click on the hop banner above to get to a complete list of participants.)

This was one of my Flower Patch cards from the board.  (I also did a variation of one you’ve already seen.)  I wanted to do something anti-flower, so different that people wouldn’t even recognize the set.  I was hoping I could do something “farm” with it.  First I stamped the … stalks? … across a wide piece of card stock, then tried many things with it.  For a few weeks I cut the piece down, and down, and down — until I had hardly anything usable!  Still, I like the play of the burlap and lace in this final result.

Debra Burgin Flower Patch TagI’ve said before how crazy I am about the two-page spread in the Annual Catalog (pages 154-155) that highlights this set.  I love the colors!  So I stamped, die cut, and assembled a bouquet of these to use on an announcement board for the studio.  This 10″ x 8″ board was around $2 at Walmart.  It is indeed a chalkboard, but I wrote on it with a chalk paint pen that can be washed off with water.  Would that I could use our own White Stampin’ Chalk Marker — well, I can write with it, but I haven’t figured out yet how to clean it off!

Debra Burgin Flower Patch ChalkboardFMS Final 147-001I had a few leftover pieces from the chalkboard project, so I put together this card, based on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge #147.

I had an anniversary card already made for Peter’s parents later this month, but it got pressed into duty for an engagement party we attended, so this will do.  These are the colors of their wedding five years ago, so I think it fits perfectly!

    Beautiful set of projects and I LOVE the chalkboard!

  2. Three delightful projects, Debra! That first card is so striking — it is not a look that I would have every dreamed up for this set and I just adore what you did.

  3. Yapha says:

    Great projects, Debra! I love the stalks, and that chalkboard is spectacular! (And I’m pretty sure that I heard somewhere that our chalk marker is permanent.)

  4. Dawn Tidd says:

    What fantastic projects, Debra! I love the cards and the chalkboard is awesome. Way to work the Flower Patch set!

  5. Carol Carriveau says:

    Both of your cards are plain/simple and soooo pretty! Love your blackboard with the pretty flowers….depending on what you write on it with, an eraser will be best for regular chalk!

  6. I love all your projects. I love the first card a LOT. The layout and design really stands out. The chalk board is brilliant. I like how you cut the embossed card stock apart on the 3rd card. Beautiful job on all of them.

  7. Tanya Boser says:

    Well, your first card certainly reminds me of the farm in a good way! I see cornfields in the stalks, and the burlap and lace definitely says farmy goodness to me 🙂 Lovely, and definitely CASEable! All of your projects are stunners! Can’t wait to CASE a few myself!

  8. Wendie says:

    Wow! All of these are beautiful!

  9. Betty Traciak says:

    Nope can’t do it! I can’t pick just one fav this time! The first is so unique, the second so happy and the third light and beautiful!!

    Both projects are stunning, Debra. But I think the one with the burlap is my fav! Gorgeous!

    Love the masculine, non-flower card. And your chalkboard is so cute!

    All three projects are great but I super love the earthiness and texture of the first!
