Stamp Review Crew: Flower Patch Edition

Members of "The Crew" were excited to have been chosen to create projects for one of the display boards at the 2014 Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City which was held in mid-July.  We chose two stamps for our board: Lovely as a Tree and Flower Patch.  This current blog hop has all our Flower Patch projects. 

Several months ago I started creating animals with the Hamburger Box die and had thought a turtle would be cute.  As I was brain storming ideas for the Flower Patch set I realized the leaves could become flippers and a sea turtle was born.  The spotty Flower Patch images fit perfectly in the embossed hexagons to give this little gal some shell flair.
I guess I still had critters of some sort on my mind when I created my next card with this awesome little fellow.  
Finally, I used the flowers as.... flowers!    It is wonderful how all the images and framelit cutouts layer on one another.    The flower pot was made using the French Fry Box die.
From the side you can see that it is curved and mounted at the edges only to give some added dimension.

I had some pieces leftover from experimenting with layouts for the other projects.   They were too cute to throw away so I combined them to make a little Ghirardellie chocolate holder.
Here is a pic of the completed display board with all the super projects!
