Convention Swaps!!

I have just returned from the Inspire Create Share convention held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I always have such a great time, catching up with my team, seeing lots of great projects and did I mention that I got a copy of the New Catalogue!!! I love being a demo!!!

One of the traditions of convention, is participating in swaps. My team had decided to do a two-inchie swap. What’s that, I hear you ask? It’s basically a 2 inch square, which we decided to do using the brights colour collection and in a party theme.

So here is my swap. I used the owl punch and made 40 crazy owls!! (He’s been to a party after all!!)

As you know, I am also part of the Case-ing the Catty Design Crew. Most of us were attending convention and we decided to do a small swap.

I have been wanting to try out the Bokeh technique so I thought I would give it a try. It was a bit scary but I’m happy with how it turned out. Each one looks different!!

Team Day Blending

I’m back home after a great weekend in Melbourne with my amazing stamping team, the Eureka Stampers!!!

I was asked to do a presentation about Blendabilities, which you may have noticed I like just a little bit!!! Now I know I’m not an expert but I love to give them a go. I found a number of techniques to show everyone, and over my next few blog posts, will share with you too.

One of the simplest techniques is colouring DSP, or Designer Series Paper. In the current catalogue, there is the Back to Black DSP or in the Occasions catalogue, the Stacked with Love DSP stack. I find this technique works best with a dark colour paper as then you don’t need to worry about staying within the lines. Once the ink is dry, you can’t see where you went over.

I used the Stacked with Love DSP stack and coloured it using my new favourite colour, Bermuda Bay blendies. It took a little while, but I think it looks cute!! I also used the Hello You thinlits for the word.
