That is the theme for the Stampin' Up Convention 2014. There were great classes, fun with my team member (we missed you Whitnie & Natalie!) and Stampin' Up family, awesome make and takes & many many swaps.

Our group, Got Ink? Girlz, were chosen to make a sample board for convention. We all worked hard to get these over the top projects done and are thrilled how it all can together. Come back often because I'll be posting details and instructions on some of these WOW totally awesome projects.

Convention swap:

You can't tell but this is a digital hybrid card. The base starting at the yellow thru the white card stock with the gray images is the digital part made with MDS software. I added a Coral piece of card stock behind as a card base & cut a white & yellow banner from the banner framelits stamped with the "Taped" stamp set. Then stamped using the "Six Sided Sampler" stamp set backed with Brushed Silver card stock punched with hexagon punch. I also added the yellow spatter with daffodil delight ink.
Many people ask how I printed the digital image. To tell you the truth, I wanted to use Stampin' Up!'s printing service since their quality is so good, but they were offline doing upgrades and didn't have time to wait. So...I used my cheap old HP, very basic printer and surprisingly the yellow color turned out very close to SU's!  Send me a message if you would like the digital image for this card.

April club - 3x3 Card Set and Storage Box

To make the flower, crumple up the flowers,
flatten out and stack on top of each other.
This gives them the some texture. 
Using Envelope Punch Board measure a 6x6 piece
of pattern paper at 2 5/8 punch and score all sides.
Then punch and score at 3 3/8 on all sides. You
will be left with small squares between the triangle
flaps (see pic.) Cut those out and assemble.

March Club Project

File Folder Gift Card Holder, made with the Envelope Punch Board. I found the directions here at Patty Stamps.
