My Swaps for Columbia, SC Regional

On Saturday I attended my first Stampin' Up! event as a demonstrator. Man, was I excited! It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. What could be better than meeting members of Stampin' Up! Staff, other demonstrators, and learning so much more about products and techniques?

One of the highlights for me was the swaps. It was so much fun running around trading my cards with other demonstrators. Now I've got lots of new examples of all the wonderful projects that can be created with Stampin' Up! product. I agonized over what I would take to swap, but I finally decided on two cards that can be used for Thanksgiving or for a Fall theme. My pictures aren't that great, but I was pleased with how the cards turned out.

The card on the left took a while. I punched all those leaves with the two-step bird punch and then glued them on a circle of cs.The card on the right took less time and is just a simple Thanksgiving message.

Let me know if you need specifics on either card.

The sentiment was downloaded from a paper craft magazine website, cut out and sponged around the edges with Basic Black Classic Ink.
