I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane

...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!

Supply List:

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)
Bird Builder & Decorative Label (Hair)
Ornament (Face & Turtle Neck)
Owl Builder (Lips)
Lace Ribbon Border (Pumpkin Pie background)
Scallop Edge Border (Pacific Point trim under White Scallop Square)


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!
