Where does the time go?!  I can’t believe that Stampin’ Up! Convention is right around the corner!  Yes, I’m headed to Salt Lake City, UT with 5,000 of my stamping friends for a huge 25th anniversary celebration!  Since convention is just days away I’m up to my elbows in swap cards!  This one was created for a special swap that I am participating in while I’m there.


I don’t normally take the greetings off and add my own, but I’m just in love with the hostess greeting set called Express Yourself (item #130336, pg. 205 in the catalog).  This set has 12 different versatile greetings that I find myself wanting to use again and again.  I knew I had to put it on this card.

I did a lot of coloring on this card using both the markers and inks with the blender pen.  The birds are punched out with the Decorative Label Punch which fits them perfectly!  I also added an embossed layer using the Cloudy Day embossing folder tone on tone.

If you are interested in keeping up with me while I’m at the Stampin’ Up! Convention please head on over and Like my Facebook page.  I will be doing most of my posting and updates through my page since I have learned that there isn’t a lot of time for blogging!

Be Creative, Kristin
