Convention was AMAZING! One of my favorite parts was participating in a Stampin’ Connections WOW Swap. Stamping’ Connections is a demo only website that has something like 84,000 project ideas!! You never have to worry about coming up with an idea for your workshops when you have Stampin’ Connection at your fingertips!!

The card I made for the WOW swap is one that uses a technique that I learned from Dawn Olchefske’s DoStamping Blog. You make your own Texturz Plates! As you might notice, I used the Lattice Die for my hand made Texturz Plate. You can find out how to do the technique HERE. I added some jewels to each of the lollipop flowers with our half-back rhinestones. The adhesive is already on the back of the jewels so it wasn’t hard at all to pick up the sparkly with our Paper Piercing Tools and place them right where I wanted them on my cards.

Of course, I didn’t forget the inside panel of my cards. It keeps the circle theme going and of course I couldn’t resist adding one more tiny jewel for the finishing touch!
