Convention Swaps

I promised that I would come back with some pics of my swap from Convention. This card was inspired by a card that Carolyn King. I recently went to a Stamp Camp run by Pat Carr.  Susan Joyce actually did the demo on how to make the card that Carolyn had made. You will need the following:-
Cardstock - Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory
Ink - Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake
Stamp Sets - Papillion Potpourri, Wordplay
Accessories - Dauber, Shimmer Paint (Champagne Mist), Isocol Rubbing Alcohol,
Window Frames Collection 129021, Elegant Butterfly Punch
First of all you need to use your dauber to sponge the Midnight Muse and Crumb Cake inks onto the Naturals Ivory cardstock.  Once you have done this you will need to spray the cardstock with water quite liberally.  Let the water run over the cardstock so that the colours run a bit. I then used a paper towel to dab to get the excess water off and leave to dry.  You can use your Heat Tool to dry off if you haven't used any embossing powder with an image first.
Once it is dry you can then stamp your image onto the cardstock and then I sprayed with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with Isocol Rubbing Alcohol.  Its amazing how the colour is lifted once you spray this on.  The rest is self explanatory.
All the sentiments ready to adhere to cardstock

And they are all ready for Convention

When I arrived home from Convention I put all of my photos onto USB's for the girls in my team and I made these little tags to write a little note to each of the girls. This is a Sneak Peek in case you haven't already guessed.  Its from the new catalogue and the set is called Around The World. I love the colours in the DSP. They are the new In Colours.  I won a Prize Patrol which consisted of the Around The World Stamp Set, DSP and a ribbon.

I was kept busy also as I had an order for some Baby Shower Invitations.  I only had a week to have them ready by the time I arrived home from convention. I hadn't got much notice before I left for Brisbane.  I spent three days and nights making them and I think they turned out pretty good.
I have used the following:-
Cardstock - Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Ink - Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Versamark
Stamp Set - Bordering On Romance, Button Buddies
Accessories - White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Corner Rounder, Pearls, Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, Framelit Labels collection 125598, Pink Ribbon (unfortunately not SU!)
I will be back with more soon. 
Thanks for popping by :)
