More of my convention swaps

Can you believe that I still have some of my convention card swaps that I haven't shown you? I had to go back and look to be sure that I hadn't posted them before.

The first one uses my favorite Fabulous Florets stamp set. I used one of this year's new In Colors - Wisteria Wonder. It's such a beautiful, soft purple color. I paired it with Lucky Limeade, which is another new In Color this year. The flowers were stamped first, then masked with a Post-It cut out in the shape of the flower before stamping the leaves on top. I also used that lovely Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and a greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes. That is such a versatile stamp set with so many sayings in it - 24 to be exact!
Somehow I missed taking a picture of this same card in the other color combination I used, which was Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, and Certainly Celery.

This card was made up because I had a few of these flowers left over from my card that I posted HERE. I figured if I had the flowers already colored and cut out, I should just make them into a card to swap.
I actually had about a dozen cards that I made up with leftover kits from a few of my last card classes. Since everything was still current, I just used the supplies and made up the cards. This next one is another sample of using up some previously cut supplies. The original card was a Happy Father's Day card, but I just changed up a few things to keep it current. (You can see the original card on this post.)

I will be showing you lots of new and exciting things from the Stampin' Up! convention soon, but I'm working on sorting through the pictures and getting them organized first. There are just too many things to share - but I'm going to do my best to give you a taste of all that I saw!
Until then...
