Convention 2012 Roommate Gift

Speaking of Convention...  It's traditional to have gifts for your roommate.  I LOVE making gifts so this makes me happy.  Here is the gift set that I gave my roommate.  I made another set for my downline who attended Convention as well. 

This small package is a chocolate nugget holder.  I'll post directions for this little guy soon.  It's SO easy and really cute. 

 The middle gift is a hand sanitizer holder.  Can't hurt to have that at Convention!  It would also make a great teacher gift!

 And, of course, more chocolate...  Can NEVER have enough of that at Convention (or anytime for that matter!).   I'll try to post some directions for this package soon, too. 

 I hope you like these gift ideas!

Double Peek-a-Boo Card - Convention 2012 WOW Swap

Here it is!  My twist on the card shown here.   I made about 20 of these to swap at Convention this year.  I got the GREATEST reaction when I showed how the card worked.  That made me SO happy!  :)
Sorry for the blurry picture - I used a technique that I've been dying to try and the glitter didn't photograph so well.  I learned the technique at the Albuquerque Regional that Stampin' Up! had here last Fall (2011).   Put a small gob of Dazzling Details in a container and add a few drops of reinker (I used the lid of a package of brads).  Mix with a toothpick and then paint!  Easy Peasy!  I used Daffodil Delight reinker since that was the color of ribbon I had and it worked will with the Ducks.

Here's is the card as it's being opened...

 And here's the inside when it's fully opened!

Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White
Ink: StazOn Black
Stamps:  Every Little Bit, Petite Pairs
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Dazzling Details, Daffodil Delight Re-inker, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker, Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon

I hope you like it!  Let me know what you think!

Double Peek-a-Boo Card - CASE

 OMG!  This is my favorite card - EVER!  I found a video on how to make this card and instantly fell in love!  It's a MOVING card.  How fun is that?  As you open the card, the sentiments move over the flowers. 
I used the color combination from page 134 in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog.  So pretty!

This is the card fully opened (well almost - that was hard to photograph with one hand!).  When it's opened, you can see the hidden messages come out.  SO FUN!!

Come back soon and see my twist on this card for my Convention WOW swap.

Ink: Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade
