Leaving on a Jet Plane...

I am boarding the plane to fly to Salt Lake City at 06:15 today!!! Stampin Up! Convention is an amazing experience and I can't wait to get there :)
I thought I would share my swaps with you this week, so I can make you all wish you were here with me ;) Here is the first one!

This was the prototype. It still needed something and I played with it for a while before I just put it aside and went to bed. It did not help that my asthma was totally out of control that night so I couldn't hardly breath, let alone think. I ended up not sleeping and went in to the ER for a breathing treatment and steroids at about 4am. I got home around 5:30am (I know, super fast ER visit!) and then I could only sleep a little bit. The steroids were sure keeping me up! But on the upside, I whipped up 5 really cute card designs later that day!

And this is the final version of this one. I ended up making 17 of these, and this year I already set aside my copies of my swaps. I learned my lesson after the last convention I went to and didn't have any of the ones I made!
I really enjoyed working with this set. It has a very modern feel to it. Lots of soft curves and botanical glory. The new Scalloped Polka Dot ribbon is awesome to work with too, soft and flexible and fun! I wanted some paper buttons on this card, so I used both of the button dies and layered them all together!
  • Stamps: My Friend
  • Paper: Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Naturals White
  • Ink: Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip
  • Other: Big Shot with Buttons #2 die and Sweet Buttons embosslit, Signo White gel pen, Stampin' Dimensionals, Chocolate Chipped Scalloped Polka Dot ribbon, Corner Rounder punch
I will have another swap to show you tomorrow!

Tanya, I have loved everything I've seen done with this set but just haven't made it a priority to get it - yet. This is absolutely beautiful
