Hope you’re having a great weekend!  It’s another cloudy, rainy day in Georgia so it’s a good time to catch up on my blog.  Today, two more convention swaps are being shared.  
The first is Card Candy.  As you’ll note, it’s packaged and ready for swapping.  One of the swap requirements was to select a stamp set from the new catalog and use it to prepare a package of card candy.   “Mosaic Madness” is the stamp set that I selected. 
Card Candy using Stampin’ Up! Modern Mosaic Stamp Set and Mosaic Punch
The mosaic pattern is currently very popular…next time you receive a catalog or sales flyer, look closely and you’ll likely see clothing, household decor and furnishings with the pattern.
Another convention swap, in which I’m participating, is a “Fancy Envelope Swap”.  The task is to create an envelope from card stock or designer series paper and embellish it.  The envelope is perfect to use when presenting cards in person or attaching to a gift.

Interior of Handmade Envelope
On the envelope interior, I used the new Envelopes Framelits Die from the new Holiday Catalog and is available for order on August 1. 
The envelope was fun to make and when I return from convention, I will be posting a detailed tutorial on making your own envelope.  Be sure to register “to follow by email” so you will receive notice of the posting!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
