Preparing for Convention!

As mentioned in earlier posts, the Stampin' Up! Convention is this month so I'm in the midst of completing cards to use in various organized swaps.  One is a "Thank You" card swap and below is a card made using the reverse masking technique.


Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! Mixed Bunch and Flower Shop Stamps
Supplies Used:

Sassy Salutations Stamp Set
Everythink Eleanor Stamp Set
Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad
Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' Pad
Pear Piazzazz Classic Stampin' Pad

In my last blog post, a Get Well card was shared.  Using the same materials, I prepared cards for a "WOW" swap that requires using a new stamp set from the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! catalog. As you'll notice in the card below, I have added "WOW" to the card by heat embossing the center flower and adding embellishments (flower center using the Simply Pressed Clay Molds and of course, rhinestones!)  What do you think?

A final card for sharing this week is not a swap but just my "10 minute" challenge!  Deciding the color scheme actually took longer than preparing the card. The result - a cheerful card that was "quick and simple" to make.
