louisville Regional

Hi, have you missed me?  It was such a busy week I didn't  get much time online.  I had a fun Halloween Tricks and Treats class Tuesday and didn't take any pictures to post.  I reckon I should do that before the Spooky day.

Right now I can't do that because I'm in Louisville for a regional Stampin' Up meeting.  I made 64 swaps so I am having fun with all the new ideas I got.  We are on our lunch break so I thought I would try putting the technology in my pocket to the test to see if I can post from it.  So far so good. I can't figure out how to post a picture though so check back later tonight and I'll edit the post to add a picture of some of the swaps. 

I'm having a great day, I hope you are too! 
This is my swap card.  It uses the Well Worn DSP and the Posy Punch and Four Frames stamp sets.  I stamped the Four Frames onto Sahara Sand and punched them out with the Decorative Label punch.  I also punched out a Basic Grey background for each.  No need to use the punches whole, I cut them in half to cosnserve paper.  If I was only doing a few I would have inked the edges of the card and DSP but since I was making 64 I decided to skip that step.  I had another version that had a piece of the DSP that had some red in it so I used Riding Hood red for the places I used Basic Grey on this one. 

This one is probably  my favorite swap over all.  It is a beautiful vintage card and she did take the time to ink the Top Note and the sentiment.  It was shared by Fram Sebad and features the Artistic Ectchings, Netting, Established Elegance and Perfect Wrods stamp sets.  The DSP is from the Neutral collection and she used a length of the Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon, Basic Pearls and the flower from the Itty Bitty punch.  It all comes together to make a georgous card!

Lucky you! I wanted to make the Louisville trip this year, but my dad is very sick. I'm one of his primary caregivers and was afraid to be away from him. Have a great time!
