Stampin Up Brussels Covention Swaps 2014

One of my favourite parts of stampin Up is the get togethers with fellow demos, and the taking part of swaps is a tradition I am sure your aware of, This years convention was the best so far for me,  firstly I won a Golden Ticket Free entry into Convention in Brussels, secondly I won a prize patrol that included not one but two pack of  Blendibobs aka Blendabilites, but the best part for me was that I had  5 of my downline there with me,  our wider group of demos are so friendly and such fun to be with it just made it a pleasure to be there, ..

I took part in an organised swap called the WOW swap, I cased the bird part from a demo from New Zealand called Kristen , I first saw her card on Pinterest and it wowed me so much

that I thought I would share this wow with my fellow demo stampin stars group, .. this creation is an 8 x 8 inch square card.









I stamped the splashes from the gorgeous grunge stamp set inked it in versamark and heat embossed in silver embossing powder, used  the All Is Calm Washi Tape from the Winter catty, and used the beautiful Four Feathers bundle again stamping and embossing in silver powder onto our vellum, Basic Grey mono colours and the thread is from the silver bakers twine, and the lush glitter card. The sentiments came from the Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set, sequins and staples also from the Winter catty

Hope you like it, I don't think the photos do it justice its very very sparkly in real life, I didn't manage to keep one for myself, as I gifted it to a fabulously creative german demo called Jenni Pauli HERE who inspires me immensely  I was very flattered indeedy when she told me she was putting it into a frame for her home, wow!!, I am however planning  class on this so if you are interested please do shout me.

Whilst this was my wow swap I did make a little box for a keyring for those demos in my team that attended convention, I will show that another time....

Celebrating World Card Making Day with Stampin Up Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set.......

This has to be a favourite of mine Kinda Eclectic, I LOVE it, ...

Awhile ago I went to  crop held by a fellow Stampin up Demonstrator called Carole Bryson, we stayed in a Girl Guides unit in Croydon , so not far from home but I chose to stay over with a few of my friends that were going, one of whom cropped for more than 24 hr straight, gosh Cathryn has stamina for sure..

At the whilst traditionally at Scrap Booking crops you do your own thing Carol gave us fun challenges, to make a calendar, a name badge, a tag, a scrap page,  I used the above stamp set as we had done a Card class with Carol using it, and I love the colours , Basic grey, Crushed Curry, Hello Honey and crumb Cake ,  I also wanted to try a technique I had seen a fabulously Talented american demo of the same name as me, Kimberly Van Diepen she used Embossing Paste with her spots mask,  I loved this and wanted to try and Cathryn kindly donated her paste to me so I could play and this is the result!

Do hope you like.... Thanks for popping by...
