Its the 2012 Stampin' Up! Convention Day 1 and You're Amazing! That's true, of course, and it's also the name of the stamp set I used for one of my convention card swaps. (After the card you will see some convention pictures.)
I love those elephants just lumbering along with their party hats. Highlighting just of those hats with coloring and a dimensional makes it a fun "happy birthday" card. Three Stampin' Up! punches are used for accenting the words.
To see how this card is made with the You're Amazing stamp set (p. 33 #126720w $30.95, #126722c $22.95), just scroll below the rest of the pictures to watch the video.
Here is the bag we got today from Stampin' Up!
and another view:
I really like this bag. Notice the Chevron pattern on it? That Chevon design is all the rage this spring in home decorating, clothes, shoes and more. Have you noticed it around? Stampin' Up! is up with that trend…..and there is even a Chevron Embossing Folder in the catalog (p. 189 #127749 $7.95)
I've never been much of a "bag lady" but I do like my Stampin' Up! bags. I have enough to fill an entire closet, or at least a couple of shelves!!!
Today was also a day for shopping at Memento Mall. Notice the pretty displays for the products:
These pinwheels and flags are made with the Patio Party designer series paper (p. 165 #126916 $10.95) Notice how some of the pinwheels are double layered for even more pop.
Check out these party favors made with the Designer Rosette Bigz Die (p. 194 #125594 $42.95) and the Floral District designer series paper (p. 163 #126919 $10.95)
And simple flag party favors from the Comfort Cafe designer series paper (p. 163 #126898 $10.95)
Don't all of these party favors put you in the mood for a party? Which of these quick and easy party favors would you make?
…..and now, back to the Stampin' Up! birthday card idea in this video tutorial:
I want you to know that I am thinking about you today. Its the 2012 Stampin' Up Convention Day 1 and You're Amazing! A big thank you to all of you who make this the fun and wonderful business I have with SU!
