I filled a roaster with a triple batch of Chocolate Crunch Chex-I'm not sure if that's what it's called for sure, we refer to it as Chocolate Crack. Sad to say, the roaster is almost empty, and even sadder is that I probably ate 2 of the batches myself! Well I'm off to bed-it's been a fun and long day. Stop back tomorrow for another card-a sneak peek from the new Holiday Catalog. Thanks for stopping by! Seasons Greetings!

Can't forget the tattoo!
I think they created a monster! But he had the best day ever! Thanks for coming by today. Tomorrow is my Stamp-A-Stack, and I think I'm all ready for it. Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the event and I'll give you a break from Convention samples. I'll have a Christmas card for you so make sure to stop back. Thanks so much!

I also used the new Ticket Duo Builder Punch along with the Scallop Circle, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches. I added a row of the new Dahlia flowers on top of the stitched ribbon. I love how the colors in this card are kind of subtle but alot of fun too! The colors used are Baja Breeze, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and a bit of Gumball Green, and I think they all work great together. Well time to get back to my cards upstairs. Stop back tomorrow for a brand new "6 Pack" featuring You're Amazing. Stay cool-it may require ice cream! Thanks for coming by!

I used all but one stamp in the set for this project-always makes me feel like I'm getting my money's-worth! And always drives my card ladies nuts probably! I like it when all the stamps can feel equally loved : ). I love that these images make perfect banners, pennants, pins and medals. I'm not going to try to list everything I used for this project-we'd be here for days, but I did use First Edition DSP, World Spectacular DSP and the Regals DSP Stack. I covered some of the images in Crystal Effects to make them look like pins, and some were embossed on Brushed Silver or Gold Cardstock to look like medals.
The Antique Brads and Vintage Trinkets added the perfect finishing touches.

I also got to break in the new Ticket Duo Builder Punch-fun! And I'm also loving all the new Framelits. I used the Bitty Banners for this card. I couldn't decide which color to use in the new In-Color Stitched Ribbon, so I used three! Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit work together so perfectly. I added some Baja Breeze too. I finished it off with one of the new In-Color Dahlias-they add the perfect touch!
Thanks so much for checking back today. Tomorrow I'll have a scrapbook page or 3-D item for you.

About a week after we got home, SU! contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in being a display stamper for Convention. Heck yeah! I needed to come up with 24 projects and had less than a month to git 'er done! This was the first project I made:
I wanted the base to look like a recipe card that had been passed down for generations, so I used a Very Vanilla base and added the little spatters image from the French Foliage set. I made the lines on the card using the Apothecary Art set stamped in Island Indigo. I also used Summer Smooches DSP and the Ruffled Ribbon in Island Indigo. For the pies, I punched out 'tins' in Basic Grey using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, I think? I ran So Saffron Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Buttons #5 Sizzlets Die. I punched out a bunch of 'berries' using the flower shape in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and rolled them up into little balls for the 'pie filling'. I covered them with Crystal Effects and sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamonds to look like sugar. I used Friendly Phrases for the sentiment.
Today is the first day of Convention, but I wasn't able to go this year. I'm really glad I have these samples to share with you though-it'll kind of feel like we're there. Make sure to come back tomorrow and see some more. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
