...off to Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City ... Yahooooooooooo! (I had to learn this "yahoooooo" because at convention everytime a new product is announced (and many given away), we all scream ... "yahooooooo!" Just practicing!
Okay, here's my favorite swap. I was going to save this for a Punch Me Silly Class, but after putting together thirty of these card fronts, I don't think I want to make any more!!!
Is she not adorable?!!!! Okay, here's a quiz for you ... can you guess how many different punches were used to create this beauty???? Hint, one shape if from a Big Shot Die, not a punch. You will soon find out. But, before you read on, see if you can guess ...
Oh, by the way, I made one with white hair and sponged concord crush (purple) on the tips. It was awesome (looked just like a sophisticated purple-haired lady), but it was just too much work to make 30!
CARDSTOCK: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point & Real Red
DSP: Brights Collection Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (pg. 185)
EMBOSSING FOLDER: Perfect Polka Dots (pg. 219)
BIGZ DIES: Scallop Squares Duo (pg. 223)
MISC: Gold Lame Smooch (pg. 203), Rhinestones (pg. 198), Black Marker and a piece of a blue feather from a package of feathers from Dollar Tree!
OKAY ... Here are the punches used (see pages 209-213)
Small Oval & Postage Stamp (Hat)

SO IF YOU GUESSED ... 8 ... PUNCHES USED, YOU GOT IT RIGHT!
Hope you enjoyed this! I'm saving this swap for the really great card swaps I see. Sometimes the "swappers" can get a little picky. They don't want to swap their works of art for just a simple swap. I'm loaded and ready for some serious swapping this year!!!
As time permits during convention, I will try to post some quick photos of my favorite swaps so you can share my fun! Stay tuned!!! YAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!
