Great Friend pocket card

Here is another card I made for Convention Swaps. (The little butterfly is actually very glittery, it's hard to see in this picture. I used Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and Versamark ink to make it pop!)

Thanks so much to Pamela for helping me design and assemble about 30 of these!

Card ideas

Here is a card that I made recently. They were some of my swap cards for the Stampin' Up Convention, to trade with other demonstrators. I took about 30 of each of these, and I had lots of help this year in making swaps! 

A BIG thanks to Barb for helping assemble all these ones while she was away camping!

This card uses the following Stampin' Up product:

stamps: Dreams Du Jour stamp set

Ink: Basic Black

cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Basic Black

Patterned paper: Celery Prints

Accessories: Markers, Circle Scissor Plus, dimensionals, Big Shot texture plates

My inspiration for this card came from this creative lady. Thanks!

Happy Stamping!

My hubby's Top 5 Convention-Swap picks!

Every time I attend a Stampin' Up event, I come home with some amazing swaps! And every time, my DH spends some time looking thru them and picking his favorites. Here he is.....

Convention 2009 508

He is so interested in the different techniques, and he likes to "sort" them into piles, of his favorites, least favorites etc. So....I decided this year I would post his TOP 5. (I will also post my TOP 5 in a couple days.) For now, here they are, in no particular order.
