Convention Swaps and Gifts

Okay, I have my Convention Swap cards that I made and some of the gifts to share with you.

But first, while I was at Convention I was lucky enough to see Shelli.  So here is that picture.

It's always so much FUN to have your picture taken with Shelli.  She is quiet an amazing lady !!

So let's get started with the Swap Cards, shall we.

Here is the swap card that I made for some of my Special Friends!  I just love the Blooming With Kindness stamp set in the New Catalog.  It was one of the first ones on my Wish List.  This card uses the Embossed Resist technique. 

This is my other Swap Card that I made for Convention.  You may recognize this card as it is from the June Stamp A Stack.  Thought it was such a great way to show all the In Colors for this year and we all know that everyone can always use a Birthday Card.  

Next up is one of my favorite gifts to make for my Convention Friends.  It's my Chocolate Treat Holder.  Yes, the idea is the same as the one I made last year.  It was such a BIG hit, so I changed it up for this year too.   I fell in Love with the Fabulous You stamp set and it's perfect for this project!

To see the post from last year you can click ( Here ).  The directions are also there.

I still have some additional gifts to share with you, along with some pictures of my Special friends that I saw at Convention this year.

Thanks for stopping by today and check back for my additional Convention posts!

Happy Stamping !!!

Back from Convention !!

I'm finally back from Convention.  The return trip was a little longer than expected.  I didn't arrive until Monday late morning.  Had a wonderful time at Convention, but glad to be home!!

Here are a few pictures to hold you over until I have more time. These are mostly from Memento Mall, a place we can shop for fun SU Logo gifts. I love the way they decorate our shopping space - so fun!

June Stamp A Stack - Part 2

I hope that everyone is enjoying the 4th of July !!!  I know I'm a little late but here is Part 2 of the June Stamp A Stack. 

Okay, just in case you missed yesterday's post here is the Group Picture again. 

So let's begin Part 2 with the Candles In Color Card: 

This card was a BIG hit at the Stamp A Stack!  It showcases all of the New In Colors for the 2012 - 2014.  New item used in making this card is Chevron Embossing Folder.   Now who wouldn't enjoy receiving this card for their Birthday !!

The final card for this Stamp A Stack is the Love & Sympathy En Francais Card:

I did make one slight change for this card.  I added the Cherry Cobbler cardstock to it.  This card is really so elegant and could be used for a number of Occasions, by just changing the Greeting.  I love the Crumb Cake Ink on the Very Vanilla card stock, I think it gives it a Vintage look.

You can click  ( Here )  to see yesterday's post.

A BIG Thank You to Susan and Brenda for sharing their creativity with us once again for the Stamp A Stack.  Next one is scheduled for October 4th, 5th and 6th.  Hope to see everyone again in October!!

Thanks for stopping by today !!!

Happy Stamping !!!

June Stamp A Stack - Part 1

Good morning!!  I don't know where the time goes lately.  I think I need to have 48 hours in a day rather than 24, maybe then I could stay on track. 
Today, I wanted to share with you the June Stamp A Stack cards.  For our Stamp A Stack the ladies get to make a total of 15 cards, 3 cards each of the 5 Designs that are pictured below.  My upline Susan Campfield and also Brenda Cardinal are the designers of the fabulous cards that the ladies made this month.

 I always start with the Group Picture of all the cards.

This time let's start with the lower left hand card.  My Friend Soft Silhouette Card.

For this card they stamped the image on all 3 colors of cardstock with Versa Mark and then Clear Embossing Powder.  Then took all 3 pieces and using the Tabletop Cutter made 3 strips 1" x 4 5/8".
Alternating the colors made each card different.

The second card is the Butterfly Mambo Card:                                                                                      

This card showed off the Butterfly Bigz Die and the Big Shot.  The New item here is the Alhambra Jumbo wheel.   Using the Brights Collection Designer Paper to accent and for one of the Butterflies.

The 3rd Card is the Sand and Sea Card:

The Open Sea stamp set was one of my favorites for Masculine cards.  So glad that it made into the New Catalog this year!   The ladies had their choice of making this a Father's Day card or a Birthday card.   The New item here is the Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and the New Bitty Banners Framelits!

Stop back by tomorrow and I will share the other cards with you!

Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July !!!!!!!!

Happy Stamping !!!
