Stampin’ Up! Convention just ended and I am home – and I lived to tell about it! There were 5800 women there. Okay well, demonstrators. 5790 women and 10 men. More on Convention later ….. First, these are the cards I made to swap with others. If you aren’t familiar, demonstrators make card fronts to swap with others. They are supposed to inspire you. There are some that swap full cards or 3D items, but I am pretty much a front gal so far.

Lacy & Lovely
I was inspired by a similar card on the Stampin’ Up! blog that was like this. I think it was done by Donna Griffith. Although I liked this card quite a bit, it was not my favorite but the easiest to do. This may be why of my swaps, people wanted this one most.

Toil & Trouble
Last but not least, a Halloween card. I really love how this turned out. It is fairly labor intensive but still easy. I used retired SU buttons but covered them with the Washi Tape. Since the Washi Tape is a bit waxy, the rhinestones didn’t want to stick. I used both the Tombow glue and Glue Dots to see what was best. For me, the glue dots.
