Leadership and Swaps

This week I will be heading to Nashville to attend the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference.  I am sooooo excited.  My friends Dawn Marie and Emma are buddies going with and we are bouncing off of the walls!!!  We are starting out Tuesday night at a Michigan Mingler dinner and then fly out on Wednesday.  I signed up for 2 swaps.  The set I chose to use is Thanks for Caring.  A lovely new sympathy set in the new Occasions Mini Catalog.

Besides the Thanks for Caring set I used the Vintage Frames Stencil sponged with Always Artichoke.  The flower is made from the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die with an Antique Brad in the center. 
Cardstock:  Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake and the new Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.
Accessories:  Decorative Label Punch, Oval Punches, Crochet Trim and the wonderful new color of Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon.

This card I wanted to show off the butterfly without cutting it out.  It is stamped and then I added Baja Breeze with a Blender Pen.  After that dried I brushed it Champagne Mist Paint using a Blender Pen.  I love the little sparkle that it gave.
Ink:  Early Espresso, Baja Breeze
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze and Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Sticky Strip, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon(LOVE this), Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die, Top Note Die, and the gorgeous Framed Tulips Embossing Folder.  This folder is gorgeous.  I love it!

As most of you know, we will be getting a bag from Stampin' Up! at Leadership and these are the tags I made up for us.  Aren't they fun!?!!  I cannot wait to go!
Everything is ©Stampin' Up!
