Convention No Shows

The following are cards that I came up with when deciding what to do for convention swaps this year. They're okay...simple. A lot less work than the cards I did decide to swap. I hope you enjoy them anyway.

Convention Swap #3 & #4

This year at Stampin' Up's convention, they had a Flower Power Party on the first day. They had all kinds of activities going on and everyone dressed up like hippies. I wanted a card to swap at the party and this is what I came up with...

Stamp Sets: Rough Type Alphabet (118659 - wood, 120072 - clear),
Wonderful Favorites (115114)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (101650), Early Espresso (119686), Poppy Parade (119793),
Daffodil Delight (119683), Peach Parfait (119794)
Inks: Early Espresso (119670)
Accessories: Two-Step Owl Punch (118074), Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch (119275),
Ity Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (118309)
Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents (119246)

I still wanted a few more cards to swap at convention, so I did this one. It's the same layout as the Groovy Owl punch card, but still has a different look. You can't tell from the picture, but each flower on the cake has a itty-bitty half pearl in the center. Enjoy!

Stamp Sets: Blissful Bride (118527 - wood, 120036 - clear)
Cardstock: Whisper White (100730), Blushing Bride (119796),
Soft Suede (115318), Certainly Celery (105125)
Designer Series Paper: In Color (117158)
Ink: Soft Suede (115657)
Accessories: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch (119275),

Stampin' Up! Convention 2010

Each year during July or August, Stampin' Up holds convention. I would stay a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator forever just so I could go to convention each year. This year's theme is Share What You Love. So that is what I'm doing, I'm sharing my love of Stampin' Up Convention! Some of my favorite things about convention(in no particular order)are:

1. Free stamps
2. Spending time with friends
3. Making projects
4. Swaps (trading ideas with other demonstrators)
5. New ideas shared by presenters
6. Memento Mall
7. The entertainment (this year a local country group - Charley Jenkins!)

This week I will be posting my 2010 Convention Swaps and a few cards that did not make it to convention this year, because in my mind, they just weren't good enough. I'll be posting one card each day. I'll be posting the four cards that made it to convention and three that did not, so check back daily to see all of them.
