Colors ready to fly away!

Well, time is running out on the '07-'08 Stampin' Up! In Colors. I have really loved the colors this year. I am sure that next year's colors will be fabulous too but it is always hard to say good-bye.

This card is made with the Garden Whimsy set, Bayou Blue, Groovy Guava and Soft Sky. Hope you love it at much as I do! On the butterly we used the rock and roll technique, cut out the wings and popped them up with dimensionals.

What is Rock and Roll? Well, it is easy! Ink the stamp with a a lighter color and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. By doing this the center of the image will be the first color and the outsides will be a second color. It is easy and gives a fun look.

I leave tomorrow for SU convention and am really excited. I have been making cards to swap and gifts for my roomies. I know I am gonna learn so much and come back fired up to teach anyone who will listen what I have learned. I also get some free stamps and I'll get to see the new Catalog! I am going to do my best to post once or twice from the convention!

Hope you have a great week! Talk to you soon!

  1. You are quite the crafty person. I love all of your projects. You will be sick of me before long. Do you teach the classes you refer to? I am trying to teach myself to scrapbook...it's not going so well! Hope you have a blast at your convention.
