Convention Inspiration!!!

Hi Everyone!! I am super excited about going to my first Stampin Up convention!! I needed an outlet to pour my enthusiasim into!!! So into my studio I went and the creative mojo was flowing! (Don't cha just love it when that happens?) This first card uses my new favorite stamp from the new catalog, the medallion!!!! It's so versatile, It's calling me to ink it up and scrap with:):):) Ok, now for the recipe: cardstock, crushed curry, vanilla, and soft suede, ink: crushed curry, soft suede, stamp sets: medallion, chic boutique
accessories: big shot tags, crushed curry dotted ribbon, chocolate cosmo glitter, (it's hard to see in this pic, but the dots are all glitter) 2-way glue pen,
crystal effects, (it's on top of the merci stamp and the bird) I wanted to add dimension. This card looks much better in person....
Now for the spooky card:):):) I love Halloween!!! It one of my favorite holidays! This card uses this fabulous skull "From the Crypt" stamp set!
and this awesome background stamp "All Hallows Eve" Now I'm getting in the holiday spirit!!! I can't wait to share my Christmas ideas:):):):) Ok the recipe:
cardstock: razzleberry, basic black, and whisper white, ink: razzleberry, stazon black, accessories: 1/4" basic black gg ribbon, cosmo fine glitter in silver, modern label punch, and 2-way blue pen. Oh, I almost forgot, the sentiment is from teeny tiny wished stamp set!!! We may be making this card at a future camp.....
This card again features my favorite stamp, the medallion! (It's going to be seeing lots of ink:) And again the Chic Boutique set! But check out that embossed card base!!!! That's our new final press embossing folder!!!! LOVE it!!!! It works beautifully, and adds wonderful texture!!! Here again, I used crystal effects on the tower, and the merci! Pulled out the sewing machine and stitched down that fab new chocolate chip striped ribbon!!! And last but not least used another one of the big shot sizzlets tags. The gratitude stamp is from the define your life set!!!!!! Thanks everyone for looking, can't wait to see you all at the next stampcamp in August!!! Have a great week!
Create something pretty:)
