Today . . . I’m in Salt Lake City at Stampin’ Up! Inspire/Create/Share – Convention 2014!! This will be my last blog post until after I get back which won’t be for almost a week!! If you would like to stay in tune with all that’s happening at Convention from a “Stamping to Share” perspective, be sure to “like” my Stamping to Share Business Page on Facebook and you will stay “in the loop!” Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share! Now, onto more demo swaps from our July Demo Meeting.

Chris shared this card in our Shoebox Swap. She used the beautiful new stamp set in our Hostess Only section starting on page 237 called I Like You. This card features three new In Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow. Just look at that luscious Blackberry Bliss ribbon – yum!! And, as easy to work with as it is awesome to look at.

Dawn created this card featuring the Moonlight Designer Series Paper and the stamp set called Starburst Sayings with its coordinating set of Starburst Framelit dies. I love the way Dawn used the Chevron Border, punched just once to create a beautiful feature as well as balance on this card.

Liz continued stamping and sharing her butterfly theme with us on this “specimen” style butterfly card. The stamp sets are Kinda Eclectic for the top butterfly and Papillon Potpourri for the next two. The Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder adds additional interest and texture to this card.

Sue continued to roll on with the What’s Your Type stamp set using the shapes to create a sailboat. The clouds were made by sponging Lost Lagoon ink around a Scallop Circle punch out. The sentiment and chevron waves were created with the stamp set called Work of Art.

Mary’s card was inspired by the journal picture on the bottom right corner of page 145. She took the idea and created it in a card format with some of her own personal twists on it such as adding Gold Baker’s Twine and and a strip of Moonlight Designer Series Paper. The stamp set she used is called A Happy Hooray.

Faith’s card used markers to color the Vivid Vases stamp set with bright “vivid” colors to keep the card true to the stamp set name! The bottom half of the card below the button accents features a bright daffodil panel embossed with the Chevron folder. It’s a wonderful summery card!

Debby used the new stamp set called Blessed by God that features two cross images and six different sentiments!! You can see it all on page 123. I love how the floral cross stamped in Calypso Coral coordinates so beautifully with the floral specialty paper called Gold Soiree.

Mary made this super CUTE card with the Kind Koala stamp that she will be using in a Convention swap.  We were all just tickled pink to get to make it at our shoebox swap. I love the way she incorporated the In Color Sequins on the flower punch outs to create a cute summery border at the bottom of her card.
