Stampin' Royalty Challenge #239

I have not done a challenge for a few years.   I have had an idea in my mind to make a birthday card for a friend with a little bouquet in it.    This challenge was all I needed.   I used Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Pink Pirouette, and Crisp Canteloupe.

Swap cards from Convention

Thought I would share some of the really cute cards I swapped at Convention.   You get so many great ideas from each other.    It was so much fun to swap while we were waiting in lines to get into the various programs.

Cute Birthday Card

I really am loving washi tape.  It is so versatile and easy to use.   It made this little card very quick and easy.

Paper Pumpkin

This is just a sample of what can be made with the July Kit for Paper Pumpkin.  If you would like to do a class with me and make two cards from this kit and the cute little box - you can do all three for five dollars and five dollars for every three more you would like to make.   I wasn't sold on Paper Pumpkin at first but you can do so much more with them than just the outline in each kit.   I have seen August and September's kits and they are fabulous.   You can join up now for half price for the first two months.   I really enjoyed making these and will try some more designs.

Card Class

This is a cute class featuring two flower stamps and their matching punches.   They are so versatile and can be used to design many cards - Flower Shop and Petite Petals.    You choose three designs.   You will make five of each design and you can choose sentiments from several stamp sets I will make available.   The dates are in the middle but as I am retired I can be flexible as the time.    Just leave a comment if you are interested.   I charge $20.00 to make fifteen cards - five each of three designs.   I charge $15.00 to make 12 cards - four each of three designs.

Some Convention Highlights with Friends

New Desk!

I just love this new desk I got from Staples - delivered today!   It will allow me to keep some of my  cubicles underneath and quite a bit more space than I had to work on top and not be so crowded.   Now to clean up and organize!  thank you Sarah for helping me put it together!

Convention Swap

I made 60 of these card fronts and swapped them with other demonstrator for some lovely card ideas during the convention.   Stampin' Up organizes an amazing convention every year and we had so much fun and learned so much.   The background stamp is from "What's Your Type."   I had won this in a Prize Patrol at the new Catalogue Premiere and wanted to make a card featuring it.   The other stamp set I used is Blue Ribbon.   The colors are Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, and Early Expresso.

Off to Convention

I have been making many cards - just did not keep up posting them.    This one is from Pinterest.   I love these colours together:  Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, and Garden Green.    I have used this new stamp set - Work of Art - in many cards - it is so versatile.  I will be sure to post more frequently - especially after I get back from Convention where there will be so many ideas.
