Butterfly Convention Swap

Today and have yet another convention swap card to share with you. This one features the new Butterfly punch. I just love this thing! The punch coordinates perfectly with the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set (of course!). I used my new Elegant Bouquet embossing folder to add a little something extra. What do you think?

Convention Bag Tag

Today I would like to share with you the tag I made for my convention bag. I can't believe that the annual Stampin' Up! convention is only 13 days away! This is my first convention and I am so excited!! I know it will be a ton of fun and cannot wait! Anyway, hope you like the tag, it was super easy to make! The tip here is to adhere the paper to the chipboard before cutting it out with the Big Shot. Then you don't have to worry about lining up the pieces after they are cut. This is the first time I used my Big Shot to cut chipboard and I have to say it worked like a charm! I used the Go Go Boots alphabet die set to cut out my name. It barely fit! :)

Here is a picture of the back. I think I am going to add another small scallop to the back with my fully name, demo #, and cell phone number, just in case my bag gets lost!

  • Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper
  • Soft Suede, Mambo Melon, and Bermuda Bay card stock
  • Soft Suede, Mambo Melon, and Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 5-Petal Flower Punch
  • 1/2" Circle Punch
  • Birds & Blooms, Go Go Boots Alphabet, Scallop Circle, and Scallop Circle #2 Dies
  • Big Shot
  • Anywhere Glue Stick
  • Glue Dots
  • 2-Way Glue Pen
  • Crop-A-Dile
  • On Board Long Board chipboard

My upline Merrigrace also made one for her bag. You can check hers out here - it is totally cute!

July Demonstator Swap

We had our monthly demonstrator swap over the weekend, and today I wanted to share the cards that we did. We did it make and take style again. It was Merrigrace's turn to pick, and here is the sketch that she provided us with. If you are a demo, you will recognize this from the July issue of Stampin' Success magazine.

Here is my card. I used my new Pony Party stamp set. I love that set! I also used the new Cottage Wall Designer Series paper. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to my pony's mane, tail, and hooves with a Two Way Glue pen. What do you think?

Here is the card Kim designed. I love the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper!

And last but not least, here is Merrigrace's design. We used Sticky Strip and blue micro beads to create that strip across the circle. Pretty cool!

Unfortunately Lenore wasn't able to make it to the swap, but is sending us her card, so when I get it I will post it as well.

Today I wanted to let you know that I have started a ribbon share for the new Polka Dot In Color ribbon. For $15 you will get 3 yards of each color ribbon. This way you will be able to sample each of the new ribbons and see which ones you might use most rather than having to buy a whole roll of just one color! To order, just use the button below. FYI - if you are out of town, please select the option with shipping. Also, for those of you who have already told me in person that you want a share, no worries, I already have you down!
