Butterfly Diorama Card & Goodies from Convention

Sigh. I'm still getting back into the swing of things...and already falling behind. I have to stop crashing on the couch after I get the kids to bed!

I had planned to do some stamping last night and among other projects, break out some of my new stamps. Check out all these goodies I brought home from Convention!

This was the stamp sets that came in our bag and a door prize I won, and stamp sets I got for awards, and another one for helping out at a meeting, and some other goodies from my "You Crew" experience. That was pretty cool -- Stacey got "You Crew"ed and picked me and three others to join her one morning to meet with two of the gals in the Design department at Stampin' Up!. We got to find out how they plan and coordinate designing samples for the Stampin' Up! Catalog and ask lots of questions. They didn't give us any sneak peeks, but I was amazed to learn they are getting ready to stamp for NEXT YEAR'S catalog!! We when raved about this year's In Colors, they said, "Wait till you see next year's!" Can't wait!

Since I don't have anything brand new to share with you, here's a picture of another diorama card I made before Convention. (Click here to see my other diorama card.)

I love how the Butterfly punch coordinates with the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set! I am photographing another project today that uses this combination. It was our stamp club project last month and it's really cute! Watch for more details and a tutorial in the next couple days!

Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly, Wow Flowers, So Saffron ink & cardstock, Rose Red ink & cardstock, Tall Tales DSP, Butterfly Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Sticky Strip

I've been meaning to tell you ... your photos are so nice -- good color, nice focus. I do appreciate their crisp (for lack of a better word) quality.
