Back from Stampin' Up! Convention!

I'm back from convention and had a great time! I'll post more pictures and information later, but I do have one of my swaps that I wanted to share with you today while I have a few minutes. We are looking to buy a car; great thing to do in 100 degree heat, right?

I was in a small group Wow card swap at convention and this is the card I made. It uses a cool diamond fold. I received the instructions for it from Laura Lipe and then found a video here on You Tube demonstrating it. I'm very "visual" so that helped a bunch! Now, after having folded about 30 of these babies I think I have it down pat! lol!

These other pictures show the card opened somewhat and then a top shot to view the fold better. I did stamp the two sentiments from the set, one on each side but you have to open it a little further to see those.

The flower from One of a Kind was stamped with craft ink then clear embossed on Pink Pirouette cardstock, then more color was added with the same ink and a Blender Pen. Riding Hood Red was added to the inner ring of the flower; the center was stamped with Kiwi Kiss then punched out and added to the flower with a Dimensional. It's cool the way this card will stand up!

Inks: Chocolate Chip Craft and Classic, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss (new In
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip cardstock; new Bella Rose Designer Paper

Margaret, I am glad you had fun at convention.....the best part was the last moment, right!? That UPS guy was the hit of the convention. So much fun! I love this card, I just received one in the mail from a friend and set to work re-creating it. I am going to try to incorporate it into one of my stamp clubs.
Hope you're all rested up!
