Regional Swaps 2

As promised here are some of the swaps that I received from fellow Demos at the Hamilton Regionals:

This beautiful card was done by Stephanie VanDorp. Click here to go to her blog.
What I love about this card: The colors look great together and the silver embossing makes it look so elegant. The polka dot embossing is so subtle put perfect.

Unfortunately there was no name on the back of this card. If anyone knows the creator do not hesitate to leave me a comment and let me know. What I love about this card: I love the scallop square shape. The different textures circles are just fabulous especialy being made from the new Core'dinations card stock in the new Holiday Mini. The mittens are so stinkin cute and the matching punch makes it a breeze to cut out.

Again this card didn't have a name. What I love about this card: the monochromatic colour. You could so easily change the sentiment and turn it into a masculine card.

Happy Crafting!!

Regional Swaps

As promised here are my swaps that I made to exchange with fellow demos. I actually made 4 different cards:


   I didn't want to get bored stamping the same card (I made over 30 cards) so I used different colors and stamps. I just fell in love with this technique (Seamless Tier / Triple Stamping) a couple months ago. The Black & White card is my absolute favorite, it turned out great.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Papaya Collage, Friendly Phrases
Ink: Basic Black, Sahara Sand
Embellishments:Basic Black 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Hamilton Regionals

I LOVE this company!! Last Saturday Shelli and the gang came all the way from Utah to spend the day with us.  This was my first Stampin' Up! event and I was not disappointed. All the presentations from the Home Office Staff and other Top Demonstrators were awesome. Shelli demonstrated this awesome tag that I just have to teach at an upcoming class (visit my website for class dates):

Isn't this just gorgeous!! Here are some pictures of some of the displays that they had for us.

It was such and awesome and inspiring day and I met some great people. This is just ONE of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. If you would like some info on joining my team, feel free to email me today. I love making new friends.

Watch for tomorrow's post as I will showcase my swap that I made and some swaps that I received.

Happy Crafting!!
