Stampin' Up! Convention Swaps!!!

Stampin' Up! Convention is this week! It is the ultimate Stamping Addict's get away...with an excitement that is in-describable. The excitement begins at the airport. Once you board the plane, you quickly spot fellow stamp addicts. They have the newest Stampin' Up! catalog in hand. Some pull out their bags of swap cards, admiring each other's work. Some pull out their bags of card pieces, assembling them en-route to Salt Lake City! And, the excitement and energy just builds from there... Oh, how I would love to be joining the thousands of fellow stamp addicts in Salt Lake City!!! But, I am so fortunate that one of my downline gals has offered to swap my cards for me. So, I will be able to share with each of you cards from fellow stampers :)

Today, I thought I would share 2 of my swap cards that I am sending with Sarah.

The 1st card uses Perfect Punches, the Modern Label Punch, new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder,Damask image from Friends 24/7 stamped in Pear Pizzaz, Old Olive & Very Vanilla cardstock.

The 2Nd card uses the new stamp set, Word Play. New In-Color cardstock, Poppy Parade with coordinating ribbon. And, the new Sunny Garden designer paper!

I wish safe travels to all convention-goers. And, Sarah, thanks so much for swapping for me :)

Love the new Bling!!!

This card is in the August Demonstrator Magazine (Stampin' Success) and I just loved it! Their sample used softer colors, Pear Pizzaz, Bashful Blue, & Pumpkin Pie (also very pretty), but I changed it up to a fabulous bright color palet with Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, & Melon Mambo. I found the color combo with my new Stampin' Up! Color Coach. The new color coach has a great new design, that makes creating great combos easier than ever!!!

The stamp sets are brand new, Print Petals & Curly Cute! And, look at the new card bling...I just love the new card Jewels. They come in Rhinestone(item #119246)or Pearls (item 119247). They have sticky backs, so easy to use, plus you get 150 for only $4.95!!! See the sparkle on the close up :)

One more element on the card, I ran the stamped image through the Polka Dot Impressions Folder 1/2 way, which added more texture to the card.

Gotta love the new stamps & embellies!!!

What do you think??? Comments alway welcome! Have a GREAT day!
