I've got a few pictures from Regionals to show you, and pictures of Swaps. What are swaps? Swaps are an unofficial part of any Stamping gathering (Convention, team meetings, Regionals, Incentive Trip) where you literally swap cards you have made with each other. It is great fun, a nice way to get inspiration from fellow stampers and adds to your sample box or board.
I made 47 cards in total, with 2 designs to choose from. Both cards used stamps and products from the NEW Summer Mini which starts tomorrow
The Butterfly card used a new stamp set called Butterfly Prints, and also the matching PUNCH! (You know how I love punches that go with stamps!) I've also used the Circle Scissors to cut out the Vellum circle (which looks slightly crooked now that I look at it! Bother!). Because I could only put adhesive on the vellum behind my butterfly I added a new button with a glue dot to help anchor it down.
I have a few photos of the swaps I've received to show you, but I have to fiddle with Photoshop first before I can post them. I will hopefully get faster with all this!
Once last thing to show you - are you after a cheap and easy gift idea for someone? How about this?
I bought this plain little white dish for less than $3 at Spotlight, added a rub-on from the Bright Delights Rub ons, sprayed it with a ceramic sealer (also Spotlight), let it dry, then added some matching ribbon. Apart from the drying time, it was seriously quick and easy. I think with the sealer it would be fine to hand wash but I wouldn't trust a dishwasher or microwave. I'm just going to add a cute tag and it's done!
The Rub-ons are easy to use and fun too!
