Celebrating Creativity - Day 14

Still posting Convention swaps - I guess I did more than I thought which is great.  Convention is so much fun for so many reasons.
  1. It's girl trip - my mom and sister are demonstrators so we get to have this awesome experience together.
  2. The excitement of thousands of demonstrators is beyond your imagination.  It's energizing and inspiring.
  3. You get to attend a lot of useful classes that help make me a more effective demonstrator.
  4. You get to see MORE SAMPLES than you ever dreamed of - both of existing product and brand spanking new holiday product.  Those demos are my favorite - the talent of SU's presenters is incredible.
  5. It's just fun - from awards night to social events to swapping, you leave ready to Share, Inspire, and Create!
These next three swaps are all butterfly themed.  I wanted to do something that I could teach my customers, especially since so many of them purchased the Butterfly Basics bundle and the Watercolor Wings bundle.

For this card, I used the Watercolor Wings bundle, as well as the Watercolor Wash background stamp.  I wanted it to look like sky so I used Soft Sky.  I wanted to use So Saffron for the saying so I punched out a 2" circle from a post it and adhered it on the Whisper White.  Then I inked up my background stamp and stamped.  This left me a "sun" to put my beautiful So Saffron saying inside.

For the butterfly, I stamped off the So Saffron for the base and then used a second of the stamps for the darker yellow.  It is punched out using the Bold Butterfly Framelits (which pair perfectly with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies) and has a few strands of Silver Metallic thread behind it.  The base of the butterfly are metal rimmed pearls - aren't those AMAZING?  One of my favorite new catalog products!
