U Rock!

Yes you! You rock just for stopping by! So here is the card I designed for our Great Swaps Convention swap.

I intended to use my new Fresh Cuts set from the new catalog, but decided at the last minute (and that's exactly what it was) to use this It's a Sign set. I wanted to show it some love and use a unique set that isn't overly used.

The Real Red pieces are all crimped with the crimper. The Creamy Caramel piece was stamped over and over with the "Way to Go" stamp in caramel for the background. The ribbon is the Real Red striped that is in the new catalog, as well as both star punches that you see here. The center star in Eggplant is raised on a pop dot so it adds more dimension.

I hope you like it. It's not nearly in the same class as the stunning swaps I received so I hope no one is disappointed. I tried to do something a bit different for me and keep it unique.

Great to "see" you- stop by again! I'll try to be much more regular wtih posts now that I'm home!


  1. I loved getting this card, it's fabulous and fun! It was great meeting you at Convention! Your hair was so much shorter, I didn't put it together who you were at the time, until I came back and saw your blog! lol!

  2. It was greating meeting you and I loved receiving this card at convention!! I love the contrasting colors and the use of the crimper (I always forget I have one). It was great meeting you irl.

  3. I just love this card! The color combo is sooo cool, and every detail is just perfect! It was so fun to meet you and hang out!

  4. You and your card both rock, Kristin! I love the color combination and the crimped pieces. I don't have this stamp set, so it's great to have this awesome card to show my friends!

  5. I would have loved to get this card. I'm jealous that you all got to go to convention and meet and make new friends IRL - how fun! I'll just have to settle for blog land for now - lol! Can't wait to see more stuff.
