Card Fronts for Convention

I've been busy getting ready for card swaps at the Stampin' Up Convention.  This is my first year to attend and I'm excited to be able to go this year!  My upline, Chelsea, has advised me to make card fronts just to exchange casually.  So here's what I've come up with so far:
Elegant Soiree DP was used here, with Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Soft Suede.  Curly Label Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch Corner Rounder and Small Oval Punch were also used.  I love the new Elegant Lines Embossing Folder too!  It was used on the main image mats.  Awash with Flowers Stamp set was used for the main image, and Elements of Style was used for the sentiment.
I really like this card!  Pear Pizzaz "paired" with Cherry Cobbler is a yummy treat!  I love love love the tree image from the Snow Swirls set!  It is embossed, with little touches of dazzling diamonds and a dash of bling to top the tree and the sentiment from Delightful Decoration.  Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock were also used, along with the scallop border punch, 1" punch, 3/4" punch and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.This one uses 3 stamp sets:  Elements of Style, Vintage Vogue and Greenhouse Garden.  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Soft Suede were all used as Ink for this project.  The Very Vanilla is craft ink, which I used around the edge of project to soften the edges.  I really like the little pearl flower center alot!

I think this one might be my favorite!  I used Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist (crazy about this color) and Very Vanilla as cardstock and Inc.  I again, like to use the Craft Very Vanilla to sort of 'antique' the edges of these vintage style images.  The flourish and flowers are both from Elements of Style.  The flower image was stamped in black stazon, and then colored with blender pens.  I finished off the panel edges with a light coating of blank ink and the ticket punch!  I thought this could be used for almost any occasion!

I have more cards and projects to post later this week, so post your thoughts here, share your casings and come back later in the week for more convention projects, cards for fundraisers and more new items from the Stampin' Up catalog!  Make it a creative day!
