Regionals Swap #2

Howdy All!
Today I have for you my second swap card from last week's Stampin' Up! Regionals here in Las Vegas. This is my Halloween card using the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set and the Frightful Sight DSP. I had such a hard time deciding which 4 little images I wanted to use for my card! They are all soooo cute! I wanted this card to be Bold with clean lines. This is a pretty straight forward card. The only challenging part was heat embossing the spider, cat, pumpkin and bat! Here is a complete supply list (all products used are stampin' Up!):

STAMPS: Spooky Bingo Bits

PAPER: BAsic Black, Gasic Gray, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Frightful Sight DSP

INKS: Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, VersaMark

ACCESSORIES: Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Basic Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Decorative Label punch, Black embossing powder, 1" circle punch, dimensionals, heat tool

Well, that's it for now! Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by! See you again soon!

SU! Regionals 2011 Swap #1

Howdy all! I realize it has been a few months since my last post. I was experiencing issues with my old pc and then I was out of the habit of posting anything anywhere. I have also been busy with lots of visitors and I even have my 4 month old grandson coming next week!! I can't wait to hug and kiss him!! After going to this year's Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City in July and attending Su! Regionals here in Las Vegas, I have been inspired to get back to my blog! I have been doing lots of stamping between convention, regionals, family and friends' birthdays and anniversaries and OWH cards. The card(s) I have for today I created for swapping at Regionals yesterday. I made 35 of these winter cards using one of my favorite sets in the new Idea Book and Catalog, Snow Much Fun! I love this snowman and there also is a tall skinny snowman in the set that I will be using lots! The layers on my card are pretty basic. I ran the Early Espresso layer through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. I used the tearing technique for the Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade, and the Crumb Cake layers (I am a texture freak!) I stamped my snowman with Early Espresso ink and used an aqua painter to color him in with ink from the tops of my ink pads. I then spritzed over it with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz! It's hard to see in the pics, but looks shimmery in real life! After layering all the pieces I tied some yummy Cherry Cobbler Baker's twine around some cute mini brads! Here is my complete supply list (all products are from Stampin' Up!):

STAMPS: Snow Much

PAPER: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler,
Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade

INK: Craft Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso

Well, that's it for today! I will be back tomorrow with another of my swap cards for regionals! Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
