Orlando – Here I come

I’m so excited.  I today I’ll be flying off to Orlando,  Florida to attend the Stampin Up Leadership convention.  I’ve never been to a big Stampin Up convention before so this is really exciting.  Not to mention a nice break from the winter weather here in Ohio for 4 days, that and the fact that I get to spend time with my good good friend Brian King, and meet many more stamping enthusiasts.

As part of the convention, my up-up-up-line Mary Fish (www.stampinpretty.com) is hosting a Sip and Swap where we sip some beverages, eat some good food and swap cards.  The theme this time is birthday cards.  Here is a picture of the cards I made for the swap.

Stampin up Butterfly Basics and butterflies dies

I made and posted about this card earlier in December and decided to use it for my swap as well.  You can see my original post here. I did change it up some.  Instead of sponging the background using one of my dies, I spritzed it, which, when making 25 this was much faster.  I did the same with the larger butterfly.  In my original post I had used the Marker/Air Spritzer technique but again, with making so many, that wasn’t practical, let alone healthy for my marvelous markers.

I’ll have lots more to share regarding the conference so so stay tuned.
