More Convention 2008 Swaps -- Stampin Up! 20th Anniversary

So many great ideas, from so many great people.... here are a few more of the swaps I received during the 20th anniversary Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City.

Nursery Necessities in Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, and Very Vanilla... this card was created by Melissa Jung, a demonstrator from Richmond, BC Canada.  Melissa added an adorable little accent to the upper left side of the card using a word window punch of creamy caramel cardstock and a brad of the same color.  The mellow moss star and gingham ribbon, and the softly torn edge at the bottom of the primary image coordinate softly and add an unexpected element of surprise to the card.  I love Melissa's use of color, surprise, and embellishments on this card!

WOW!

One last card for today.... This one from Jennifer Wolfe, a demonstrator in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas area.  This card is simple and straight forward in soft hues of pink designer paper, cardstock, and ink.  Created as a friendship card, it would also be quite suitable as a baby card.  I love the monochromatic feel of the card...  and the design is simple and classic.  You could try this card with leftover designer paper and coordinating card stock/ink... step it up a notch by adding color-coordinated stampin' up! eyelets or ribbon... or try it in primary colors of Red, Blue, and Green... I can see it now!  Another great layout!
