Boho Backgrounds


Oh gosh! I'm back from Leadership. Had an awesome time, a great roommate (hi Mary!) and met some wonderful new friends (hi Julie, Twila, Liz!) All these gals were fellow display makers for the convention boards. We met up for dinner one night and swapped. Great time and great cards! Also met up with a couple gals I'm in a swap group with...Control Freaks Swappers! (Hi Cindy and Karen!) We hung out at lunch one day. Karen lives VERY close, so I'm sure we will hang out again soon.

I also met up and had dinner with several of the gals from my SSUS group. Fun to meet all of them and put real faces with names and blogs!

This was one of the Boho Background cards I made that was posted on the Leadership display boards. That set is just PERFECT for the circle and scallop punches! This one I stamped Regal Rose and Tempting Turquoise medallions and punched with the scallop punch. I stamped the medallions again and punched the centers out with the 1" circle punch...and alternated them on in the centers of the other colors. The middle one I stamped Hugs & Kisses on Whisper White and punched with the 1" circle punch. And I punched a Tempting Turquoise medallion with the 1-1/4 punch and layered it on the Regal Rose scallop circle. The centers I added interest with some colored brads. The background on the Regal Rose piece is stamped with the Paisley background stamp for depth and texture. I wrapped the white taffeta ribbon around it and shaded the edges with White Craft ink. It is a 3x6 sized card (using a 6x6 piece of cardstock and folding in half). I think unusual sized cards are fun!

Keep watching...over the next few days, I'll be posting the Display cards I made!

Connie,

I met you at the airport with Cindy and Karen coming home from Leadership. I was shocked to see that I am on your feed for your blog and didn't make the connection with you until I read this post:))
