Back In Business & A Convention Swap Card

Back in Business:

I had a near panic attack late last night after I blew up my blog trying to add some plugins to track the number of visitors.  Thanks to the fantabulous support team at Dreamhost I was back online bright and early this morning.  {Whew!}


Thank you Anthony S. and the entire Dreamhost team.  If you are thinking of starting your own blog and aren’t sure who you should select to host it for you, I highly recommend Dreamhost!

A Convention Swap Card:

I wanted to share with you another card I designed for the general swap (a/k/a “swapping frenzy”) that is a big part of the Stampin’ Up! Convention experience.


Now close your eyes and imagine 5,800 or so women (and a few men too) lugging around bags, boxes and even specially made display aprons containing cards they have designed to “swap” with each other as a way to get new design and technique ideas and make new friends too.  “Are you swapping?”

Here are the supplies that I used in the design of this card:

Card stock:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit
Classic Stampin’ Pads:  Summer Starfruit
Stamp Sets:  Label Love
Other Supplies:  Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Summer Starfruit Satin Stitched Ribbon, Jewels Basic Rhinestones, Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper
Tools:  Stampin’ Trimmer, Big Shot, Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1-1/4” Square Punch, Artisan Label Punch, Bone Folder

Thanks for stopping by my blog today – and I apologize for the technical difficulties.  I hope you will come back soon.

Until next time, stamp on my friends,
