Convention 2015 Swaps

Watercolor Wings 7-11-15_edited-1

Here’s my swap for this year’s Stampin’ Up! convention. I just love this card!  I don’t know if the Window Sheet Wings show up in this picture, but I love the way they look in real life.  There’s a bit of sparkle from the Shimmery White card stock too.

The last “regular” North American Stampin’ Up! convention is two weeks from today, as I type. I am so excited!  It’s always so much fun.  One tradition is swaps. Those that choose to participate makes some cards or other projects to trade with others.  The more cards you make, the more samples of others’ cards you can bring home. Most of the cards are actually just the card fronts.  I made about one hundred card fronts

Maybe you won’t be making card swaps.  But if you like to make cards, there’s a good chance you will find yourself making a lot of the same card or other paper crafting project.  Maybe you’ll make invitations for a shower or wedding.  Or maybe you’re like me and love to send out hand crafted Christmas cards. Or maybe you’ll be making cute packaging for cookies for a bake sale.  This video shows how to mass produce cards.

These directions are for a single card and here is the post and video for one card. You can use the item numbers and dimensions whether you make one, two, or a hundred.

  1. Absolutely beautiful Bev. To be so lucky to go to Convention and receive one of your swaps would make a demonstrator thrilled.

  2. What a beautiful card Bev! You really can’t appreciate how much goes into a card like this until you see the actual condensed process in your video. It must have taken hours but the result is just lovely. Anyone getting one of your swaps will be delighted. Yesterday I printed our a bunch of your organizational labels and todays project is trying to get as many as I can actually onto the things were they belong. Have fun at the convention!

    • Thank you Pat! I’m happy to read that you like the card. And I’m glad you are able to use the labels. I am looking forward to convention!
