Cardstock is cut at 4.25×11 inches. Score at 5.5 and 2.75 inches for a unique, fun fold.

This is my retirement party farewell to the stamp set, Lovely as a Tree. It’s worked 18 years with a copyright of 2001. If you don’t already have it in your stash, there are a few more days to order it!

My Onstage Swaps

A highly anticipated activity when demonstrators gather is swapping. I knew my time leading up to Onstage convention was tight so I did not sign up for any swaps.

A day before departure, I realized I had some Card Buffet kits that just needed assembly. I brought 7 cards to swap and came back with 5. That math is a little off but I gave 2 of them to worthy demonstrators. Maybe they will snail mail me a card instead? I can only hope for happy mail:)

Here is the card I created…

I used sponge daubers for quick and easy coloring. Plus, the puppy needs to look fluffy so sponging was the best coloring option for this outcome. The stamp set Bella and Friends is being retired at the end of May. So order yours today from me!

These are the swaps I received in exchange from fellow demonstrators…

Is convention starting to look like a fun day? It is. I would love to have you join me in November. First step is to become a demonstrator on my team. Click the Contact button above to get started!

Ink, Stamp and Share Guy Cards

42535194_10156676672352208_1759988314120650752_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created with guys in mind. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

The Tranquil Textures designer series papers has a few options that look like water. I picked the pattern with a little purple so the fish could be accented with purple.

This card design was in the March Card Buffet line up. The supplies used to create the card were contained in a plastic tub lid and passed around the stamp table. Blender pens were used for coloring the fish. I wrap a piece of scrap paper around the cover at one end to indicate which pen should be used for which color. The pens won’t need to be “brushed out” of color until after the event. This might also save my ink pads from being accidentally dipped with the wrong color:)
