Stampin' Up! Baltimore Regional

Hi Stampers!

I spent Friday night and all day Saturday down in Baltimore, MD for the Stampin' Up! East Coast Spring Regional.  These events are always a ton of fun.  And the swapping!  Oh, the swapping!  So much fun.  I didn't have a whole lot of free time to create tons of swaps.  I only made 24, but that was enough for me.  I received such beautiful work in return.  I also had one lady tell me that she was hoping she could find me to swap with because she liked my design.  I was so happy about that because my design aesthetic tends to be on the clean and simple side and I always think that others like very heavily embellished cards.  Anyway, it made me so happy!  I also got to meet Shannon West, who I love, and Brian Pilling.  I was very starstruck.  My fellow demos would understand!

I also got a peek at a bunch of new products from the upcoming catalog and I got to see all of the new In Colors for 2013-2015.  You are not going to be disappointed!  The new catalog goes live on June 1st!

I stayed right in the Inner Harbor and here is the view from the top floor of my hotel.

Pretty, huh?

Here is the swap I made for the event:

Because it is Stampin' Up!'s 25th birthday, we had an afternoon cupcake break!

Yum!  I chose vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.  Obviously, I had no self control and began eating the icing on my way back to my seat.

Here is my swap on the swap display board.  So exciting!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Summer Starfruit, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Stamps: Papillion Potpourri, Summer Silhouettes, Made for You

Swallowtail Case with a Twist!

Happy Monday Stampers!

Today I have a card for you that I cased from the Stamp with Amy K blog.  I really loved her design but I had to change it up to make it my own!  This card is featuring the chalkboard technique.  I love the look that embossing in multiple colors gives you.  I think I'm going to have to try this more often.

Here's a close up of the little butterfly medallion I made.  I love the new Bitty Butterfly punch so much!

Stampin' Supplies:
Embellishments: Large Basic Rhinestone, Pool Party Ribbon from Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack (SAB #130812), Delicate Details Lace Tape
