Ingham Show

Two of my besties held an exhibit at the Ingham Show which is about three hours south of Cairns last weekend.  They worked tirelessly to put a display together and I thought it only right that I make a few things to exhibit at the event to help them out.

Michelle wanted the theme to be in the colours and patters of the Twitterpated DSP so here are a few of my contributions:
I actually cased this card from a good friend and demonstrator Teresa Brown - she had made it especially for me for the Stampin' Up! Convention in Canberra but a friend of mine had been desperate for a wedding card and went through my supplies and fell in love with the card. . . long story short I re-made it (slightly differently) from memory! Cardstocks are Naturals Ivory, Basic Gray and Riding Hood Red. I used the Floral Fusion Sizzlet Die for the flowers and the Lace Ribbon Border Punch for the fancy embellies.  Heaps of pearls and the swirls and drops from the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlet Die.

The Twitterpated DSP colours and patterns suited Paula down to the ground for the display because that girl can't get enough of blue. . .
So this little circular cheese box was covered with Twitterpated DSP and I added a few Marina Mist swirls cut out with the Big Shot and the Swirl Scribbles Sizzlet Die.  Flowers made with Blossom Party Orginal Die (large flower cut out) in Riding Hood Red cardstock and Little Leaves Sizzlet Die in Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
Twitterpated DSP is one of those brilliant packs of paper which include masculine and feminine colours and designs.  I couldn't resist pairing this striped design with nice clean Whisper White butterflies that I created with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die which I then ran through the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder and the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder.  The button is from the Subtles Designer Buttons Series and the Baker's Twine is in Island Indigo.  I sprayed the whole thing with Frost White Shimmer Paint diluted with rubbing alcohol.
Here is a little more Twitterpated DSP coupled with a Marina Mist base card and Riding Hood Red embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty Textured Embossing Folder.  The Button is from the Subtles Designer Button set the Baker's Twine is in Cherry Cobbler and the birthday greeting is from the Hostess stamp set - Happiest Birthday Wishes.  I wanted to break up the design a little more so added the Riding Hood Red Pleated Satin Ribbon, Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, Marina Mist lettering (glossed with Crystal Effects), a Whisper White daisy cut with the Blossom Party Original Die and a Marina Mist Glimmer Brad from the Subtles Collection.  Love that it all goes together so easily!
Final little card for this post Blusing Bride cardstock embossed with the Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder on Whisper White cardbase.  The rosette was made with some paper from the Beau Chateau DSP range and the contrasting pieces behing it are all Twitterpated DSP.  The flower on the top of the rosette was punched with the Blossom Punch and the Scallop Circle Punch finished off the centre (I bent all the edges up to give it further dimension).  The button is from the Regals Designer Buttons selectiona and the Baker's Twine is Island Indigo.
