Stamp Review Crew: Watercolor Wings

SRC-Watercolor-Wings-bannerHere’s a hop that couldn’t come soon enough for me!  I’ve been stamping a lot with Watercolor Wings, but I still have a few ideas up my sleeves, so to speak.

So welcome to this Stamp Review Crew blog hop!  Have you come from enjoying Dawn’s creations at Tiddbits From Dawn?  If not, and you’re unsure of where you should go to make sure you don’t miss a single idea, click on the banner above to get the complete list of blogs on this hop.  Simple!

My first project is a 50th wedding anniversary card for friends.  The butterfly, stamped in Soft Sky, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso, rests on a card base of Tip Top Taupe (my current favorite new In Color).  The butterfly body is enhanced with Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and tiny pearls.  More (and tinier) pearls dot the card base.

Debra Burgin Blue butterflyA custom at Stampin’ Up! events (or maybe generally whenever lots of women gather) is to give your roommate and friends a gift.  Now I’ll spoil the surprise by showing you what I’m carrying to Salt Lake City this week — a tin of butterfly push pins.  These slide-top containers (basically the same size as mint tins) have been in my stash forever.  I adhered a piece of corrugated cardboard covered with card stock in the bottom of the tin to hold the push pins; a thick piece of cork would have worked even better.

Debra Burgin Convention giftNow you’re over to see Holly Krautkremer at Rubber Redneck.  I love the fun details in her work!

  4. Fantastic projects Debra! The card is beautiful! Great idea to use the sequins in the centre of the butterfly and then embellish it with the tiny pearls. The little tin is gorgeous and I’m sure room mates will love it! Rochelle

    Debra, these creations are so unique. But my favorite one is the tin. I bought 50 of the Stampin’ UP! metal tins at convention three years ago and have done nothing with them. Time to put them to good use. Thanks for the amazing inspiration!

    Aaah, so cute. Love how you have used the sequin trim on the card to form the antennae and those push pin butterflies are adorable. Have fun at Convention.

    2 completely different projects but both are standouts. The card is beautiful in its simplicity and the push pin butterflies are darling! I bet the recipients of these projects were thrilled!
