It’s starting to get exciting here as the Australian Stampin’Up! Convention starts tomorrow here in Melbourne!!!! Three days of stamping, creating and being inspired by Shelli our Stampin’Up! CEO from the US.! We have a Managers Reception with her tomorrow night, talks each day and it all finishes off with the Awards Dinner on Saturday night.
I am particularly looking forward to the dinner as 3 of my downline are going to receive the Incentive Trip to Fiji plus I am sure they are going to do very well in the Demonstrator of the Year Awards – Go Simone, Maureen and Tracy, I am so proud of you, your achievements and to have you as my downline!
Here is the swap I have made for my downline. It will be going in the cute gift bags I have ready for all of my team attending Convention. I’ll post a photo of those later. I’ve used the Faux Material / Inlaid Embossing technique to emboss the die cut Beautiful Wings butterflies to the background card. The lace edging was done using the scallop trim border and corner punches. One of the very talented US demos has tutorial on how to create perfect sized matts using this corner and edging punch. Visit Gretchen Barron’s tutorial here if you would like to know more.
The cardstock colours used for this card are Poppy Parade, Concord Crush, Old Olive and Basic Black.
Thanks for looking and I will keep you updated on all the news from Convention as best I can over the next few days. Melbourne is not going to put on a very good weather display unfortunately. It is currently bucketing with rain, freezing cold and not likely to improve over the next few days…….
