Stampin’ Up! Convention 2013

May 23, 2013

I am really excited to share that today I attended the first day of my first Stampin’ Up! Convention.  Wow, how exciting.  It’s almost too much information to take in all at once.  Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder of Stampin’ Up! was the first speaker this morning and was truly a fantastic speaker.  She shared stories about the early years or Stampin’ Up! till now –  25 years what an achievement!

One of the fun parts of attending Convention is swapping cards with the other demonstrators.  I thought I would share with you the card front that I made to swap.

011I sponged Real Red ink onto the edge of a Paper Doily, cut it in half and attached each half to Whisper White card embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I punched both long edges of a strip of Basic Black card using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, wrapped it with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and attached it to the card front, covering the cut edges of the doily halves.  I stamped the stem image from the Field Flower stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink, attached the image panel to Basic Black card and then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flowers onto scrap Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut them out.  The flowers were attached to the card front over the ends of the stem using Snail.  012

I did complete one card by attaching the card front to the scored and folded Basic Black card.  I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the stem onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the flowers onto scrap Whisper White card and cut the flowers out.  I stamped the greeting from the Field Flowers stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.   The Whisper White card was attached to the inside of the card.

I really love the look of this card, especially the colour combination.  I really love cards made using Black, White and Red.

To celebrate attending my first convention, I have a PDF tutorial for you to download so that you can reproduce the card.

Bye for now, Kris.
