Reason to Smile and Convention Swaps

Lots of fun at the Fancy Fold Card Class Last Night.  Later in the week I'll show you the card box we made.  It's so cute...I know you're going to love it!

However, today I first wanted to remind you that the Reason to Smile promotion will be over at the end of the month.  That's right...only a couple of days to take advantage of the offer.

Make a purchase of $50 and get the Reason to Smile Set (up to a $20.95 value) for only $5.  If you place your order in my online store...
  • After reaching $50 on your order enter the $5 item number. (Wood - 131274, Clear - 131275)
  • Only one set per customer.
  • The Reason to Smile Stamp Set will not be available after July 31, 2012 as it is exclusive to this promotion.

This clean and simple card was a swap I received at convention from Sharon Cline using this precious stamp set.  Mine arrived right before convention and I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but I can hardly wait to ink it up.  

There is still so much more I would like to share with you from convention. I guess what I need to do is just a pick a few things every time I post. Today I wanted to show you two more of the swaps I created for convention.  

This first one uses the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set.  
  • It's a two-step stamp set with beautiful flowers and leaves.  
  • The entire flower was stamped in Baja Breeze.  First I stamped with the solid stamp, stamping off once.  Then I stamped over it with the detailed stamp giving it the light and dark effect.  
  • Added one of my new favorite colors, Summer Starfruit, in both the solid and designer series paper. 
  • For added texture I embossed the card base with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I ordered the Clockworks Stamp Set thinking it would be a good set for masculine cards and even fun to use in some vintage cards.  But when I sat down to create my swap...I just wanted to have fun with it!  
  • So I chose, yes that's right, Summer Starfruit again and added two more of the New (2012 -2014) In Colors - Midnight Muse and Gumball Green.  
  • Lots of texture by using both the Square Lattice and the new Chevron Embossing Folders.
  • Add a brad on the clock and some fun Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon for some extra details.
  • Everyone thought the Memories sentiment was perfect.  It's from the stamp set Loving Thoughts.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the above projects, joining Stampin' Up! or placing an order.  I promise great customer service and support to those who join my team.

Have a wonderful looks like another hot one!
