I'm back! Back from the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City! I had a WONDERFUL time seeing my fellow demonstrators and friends! I love going and getting re-charged with ideas…meeting NEW people…and seeing my OLD (not in age!) friends! THANK YOU to all of you that stopped me and said hi…that you enjoy reading my blog and getting ideas! I truly enjoyed meeting you and putting names with faces! To me…this is one of the best things about maintaining my blog…is the new people I've met! I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted…will take me a day or two to really catch up, I think! But, I'm anxious to get in my stamp room and start stamping!
I was blessed to walk across stage several times for awards…love that recognition…thanks to ALL my customers for helping me reach my goals this past year! And yes…now I have NEW ones…the Incentive trip is on the Allure of the Seas cruise ship to Western Caribbean! WOW! That is one AMAZING ship!
Here is one of the cards I made to swap with my SUDSOL group at Convention (if you want a 2 week free trial, click on the SUDSOL graphic on my right sidebar)…we had a fun time at lunch and swapping and took a group photo.
I wanted to create a card that could be used for your actual Christmas card using Stampin' Up!'s Christmas Blessings poinsettias and without having to color in the image.
- Base card is Cherry Cobbler
- Layer of Very Vanilla, run thru the Big Shot with the Petals a Plenty folder across the top 1/2
- Add Be of Good Cheer DSP and greeting in Basic Black
- Cut Apothecary Accent from Crumb Cake, stamp the poinsettia image on top in Cherry Cobbler
- Punch a hole at the top and tie on Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon
- Add pearls to the centers of the flowers
- Pop up the Apothecary Accent on top of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals
So…do you think you could make up a bunch of these for your Christmas card? I made 50 of them for the swap! Here are the supplies you need to order at my online store:
