Perfect Blend Convention Card

Hey Stampers,

So, were you aware that Stampin' Up! is now in the Guinness Book of World Records !?! When we were at Convention, we took part in the "Most Handmade Cards Sent From One Location" event !! So, lots of demonstrators brought cards from home, all addressed to a friend at home and sent them from Convention !! And now SU is in the Guinness Book !! Cool, right !?! I actually ended up making my card for it while I was hanging out at Cathy's house (and helping her finish her swaps) the day before we left. Its not the greatest picture, I took it in a real hurry, but the card was SO cute that I still had to share it !! It uses the Perfect Blend stamp set and Epic Day DSP. I don't drink coffee myself, but I still LOVE this cute stamp set !! I think this simple card turned out great - what do you think !?!



Isn't that sweet !?! I ended up having to stamp the coffee cup 3 times - once on my Epic Day polka dotted DSP, once on Pool Party and once on Very Vanilla. I then cut out my pieces and pieced them together. Love the fun look !! And then I added a fun Cherry Cobbler heart using the Small Heart punch and a Dimensional. My card base is a piece of Crumb Cake and I embossed the bottom half of the front with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I then added a strip of that awesome DSP again and then some of the Crumb Cake washi tape from the Epic Day pack - I am becoming SO addicted to washi lately !! Love it !! Before adding my coffee cut with some Dimensionals, I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine for another pop of that red color. I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and punched it out with the new Artisan Label Punch. I thought I needed another little punch of color, so I added a Pool Party Artisan Label (embossed with the Polka Dots again) and that finished off this cute and simple card !! I hope the recipient (a SU Team Canada member that couldn't make it to Convention) likes it too !!

Well thats it for me today !! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping !!
