Club projects and convention swaps

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted but I have a really good excuse: SWAPS!!!!!!!!
That's right, I leave on Tuesday for the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City. It;s like CHA for SU demonstrators, lol!!! Oh and by the way, you can become a demonstrator right NOW for only $85!!! Just go to my SU website (link is on the right) and sign up, it's really easy. Anyway I have been working on my swaps the last two weeks and getting ready for stamp club. I also want to tell you about the SASSSC weekend, but that will be later (we had a blast!).

So first I'll show you some of the swaps I've been working on.

This one is for general swapping on the convention floor. It's from the Halloween Hoot set and uses the designer paper from Cast a Spell.

Next is a little goodie purse of kisses and also features Halloween Hoot and Cast a Spell.

This next one is for the WOW swap and is also a club project. I love the new butterfly punch. And now I will use my Flight of the Butterfly set more. I hate to hand cut anything, especially butterflies (or flowers), so this punch is GREAT! The pop-up was something I saw at the Heirloom Stamp show and was very easy to do! I used every bit of the olive glitter that comes in the glitter collection and I was probably wearing half of it!!!
These next two cards are also club projects.
I love the Dasher stamp! It is a single stamp that is in the under $10 section of the NEW SU catty. The club will make this one using real red and old olive. It also uses the new scalloped square die for the big shot and the perfect details texturz plate (both wonderful new additions)
I got this layout from a fabulous fellow stamper in my side line (thanks Terri)!It is hard to see, but the cardstock under the deer has been embossed with the perfect details plate.
Here is a trio of the same card using different color combos. Terri made the one with Soft Suede and Ruby Red. There is also one with Always Artichoke, mellow moss and Bravo Burgundy. I used the Quickie Glue Pen to trace the antlers and apply dazzling diamonds for some sparkle.

I am also swapping at the SCS dinner, a punch page swap, and a single layers swap. I ran out of ribbona nd old olive paper BUT my shipment is supossed to arrive today. I'm keeing my fingers crossed.
