I'm going to leave you guys hanging for a bit while I enjoy some vacation time in Canada with my family. I will be back on July 9 (though I can't promise I will blog that day!). In the meantime, here are a few other things that have kept me busy...
This is the card I made for my Monthly 1 Swap with fellow demonstrators. These birds from Cheep Talk are super cute, and I am sad to see these In Colors go.
Can you say swap-o-holic? Ok, I have stopped signing up for so many swaps through the mail with Convention coming up, but I still have to finish up the ones I already signed up for... [sigh]. This ATC is for an "Ancient" swap, so I did Ancient Rome. Can you tell? I printed the Latin background off the internet. I quite like this stamp set, Classic Sketches. SU! has a really great travel notebook sample with this stamp set in the current catalog.
I was late to the Pearl Ex party, but I wanted to give it a try. This is a shimmery, metallic powder that sticks to Versamark ink (I used it on the background). You have to seal it with acrylic spray, because it will rub off. So, I love the stuff! I am really sad SU! doesn't sell it anymore. I was playing with a travel theme for a masculine birthday card. The stamps are from Rubbernecker, Stampland, and Impression Obsession.
And the really big news today, other than I am almost done designing my Convention swaps, is that my free stamp set came in the mail!! I participated in a coffee ATC swap, and the hostess was giving away this stamp set free to one participant randomly, and I WON!!! So, if your husband ever says stamping doesn't pay, don't believe him!! :) I can't wait to start using it - it is the perfect size for ATC's! And they also sent this cute spinner ATC card. Thank you Mel at Elemental Doodles!!
