This is a second card we made at the workshop Monday night in upstate New York. If you notice it is very similar to the card I made at my Wednesday workshop. I used different colors and a background stamp. Don't be afraid to try new colors.

During convention, Brent showed us an adorable motion card using the new Under the Stars set. While waiting for that set I thought I would try to make a motion card using another set. So I choose the Sock Monkey stamp set. His cupcake and hat move.

Last night I attended our Upline's meeting. It was full of excitement and information. At the end we always have the option to swap a card. This was my swap.
This card features our new Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, new IN COLOR Pink Pirouette Card Stock, the new Scallop Edge Punch, new stamp sets Eastern Blooms and Flight of the Butterfly(the words), and Fine Cosmo Stampin' Glitter.

A few months ago this technique (stenciling with daubers) was shown at a downline meeting during a round robin. (Thanks Wendy!) I absolutely loved it. I had to get the stamp and try it for myself. I found it to be easy to get great results. I still love it so much. I wanted to find a current SU! stamps that would work with it. So I played around with Lovely as a Tree. I was pleased with my results.

Stampin' Up! held their annual convention at the Salt Palace Convention Center.
Many Demonstrators (over 6000) came together and had a great time. New products was unveiled. We swapped, we laughed, we cried and we cheered. Especially when the men in brown brought us all free stamps. Head were definitely spinning from all the ideas and excitement. But the ENERGY left me charged to create.
I, too, want to inspire others to create, so I started this BLOG! (Thanks Fairle for the info!)
