Stampin ' Up! 2018 Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Display Stamper Blog Hop ~ Day Two

Hi everyone! Welcome to day two of our Stampin' Up! OnStage Display Stamper Blog Hop! If you have been hopping along you most likely arrived via Stesha Bloodhart's Blog! Were her projects not amazing today???  I would have to say so! On that note, I am so pleased to have you here with me in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!  Are you wondering what this display stamper banter is all about? Well a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the globe are here to share a few sneak peek creations with you today! We were all display stampers at the most recent Stampin' Up! conference event called OnStage! To be chosen for this display making task was a huge honour. The creations you will see in today's hop include many yet to be released Stampin' Up! products! Be sure to click on the NEXT button at the end of today's post so that you don't miss out on the entire line up of inspiration! 

Today's project features this adorable toucan from the Stampin' Up! "Bird Banter" stamp set. This set will be available for sale on January 3rd 2018. If you checked out yesterday's project, you can see just how awesome this entire stamp set is. I will have a few more birdie projects to share with you in the future so stay tuned! 

When I was set with the task of colouring this toucan, I had yet to receive my Stampin' Up! Blends! I therefore went ahead and mixed some alcohol with a few of my inks to give this feathered friend that nice blended look! He turned out just the way I had imagined. As far as coordinating stamp sets are concerned, doesn't the "Pop Of Paradise" stamp set pair perfectly with this tropical bird? I can see pulling both of these stamp sets out to use together a LOT in the future! Lastly... that Paper Ribbon... is it not to die for??? I folded it over on itself, and draped it across my card, to give a jungle like feel! What do you think? Is it not jungle like? All I can say is it wasn't hard to create this card given the array of Stampin' Up! products I had at my fingertips! 

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Remember, when it comes to card making ... "You Toucan do it!" I hope you are inspired to give this toucan card a try! Next up today is Aurelie Fabre! I can't wait to see what she has to share with us! She is one of this years Artisan team members! I am sure she will wow us with her display!
