Kind & Caring Thoughts Convention Swap

Well, I'm on my way to Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up!'s national convention. I've been preparing for this since April! Normally, I don't start that early but this year I was selected to be a display stamper so in late April a box of new catalog goodies arrived on my doorstep and I was tasked with making several cards, scrapbook pages, and 3-d items with each of the sets they sent. I also got cardstock in the new In Colors and so I had the chance to work with them prior to the catalog coming out. It was quite exciting despite the fact that I couldn't share ANY of it with anyone! I still can't show you my display items but will later on this week. I have to wait until convention starts so that convention goers have a chance to see them before I share them here. However, today I'm sharing with you a swap that I made for convention. This is one of my general swaps. If you unfamiliar with swapping, those of us going to convention make cards to swap with our fellow demos. Some swaps are "organized" this is where you sign up in advance and make a certain amount of cards. General swapping is done everywhere with everyone. There is just nothing like swapping at a Stampin' Up! convention!
Stamp sets: Kind & Caring Thoughts, Elegant Thank You
Cardstock: Shimmery White, Dusty Durango, Basic Black, Crushed Curry
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Scoring blade, scallop square punch, dimensionals, Organza ribbon, black marker, black embossing powder.

This card was made using the grid technique.

Check back tomorrow for another project and probably some photos from my day.
