Normally this is where I post a new card, or a new project, or a swap I recieved. Unfortunately, I don't have one to post today, or tomorrow, or this weekend. You see I am still working on all my stuff for Convention. I leave Sunday for my 23 hour trip to Salt Lake City. While it sounds super long, I'm actually pretty excited about my trip. I am traveling to the states in First Class (gotta love those frequent flier miles!). But, as I was saying, I don't have anything to show you for the next few days. I did recieve some of my acetate swaps from my VC_Rocks group, so if I can get those photographed and posted before I go, I will. Otherwise you may just have to sit and twiddle your thumbs for a few days.
I promise I will make it worth your while though. While I'm at convention I am planning on attending several swaps and Make N Takes during the pre-convention activities. And I will update daily to let you know all the cool stuff I'm seeing and hearing at convention. So, if you please will forgive me for my lack of original posts the past few weeks, I'm sure you will be well rewarded.
Ok, I'm off again. I need to go complete my roomie's welcome present and put the finishing touches on a couple of swaps. I'll talk to you soon from Salt Lake City!

I have always been a fan of Asian artwork, so it is no surprise that I chose Asian Artistry for my Royal Blog Tour stamp set. This set is one of the level two hostess sets, which means it is completely free! A beautiful set, for free? Make sure you ask your local demo how to get one! Now, onto what you really came to see......the CARDS!
This second sample uses the Take Nine designer series paper from Stampin' Up! as well as Asian Artistry. Isn't it interesting how you can make this stamp set super versatile?
Finally, what I think is the most Asian looking of the bunch. I had the idea for this fan in my head for quite a while before I made this card. I have to say that I am totally in love with it now that it is out of my head and down on paper.
I hope you have enjoyed my samples today. Don't forget that this is only one of four tours happening today. Make sure you don't miss a thing and check out all the amazing artwork being posted by our princesses!

Clear Acetate Page protector (cut this down one seam so it opens like a folder)
Several colored markers
A squirt or mist bottle
Glossy white, Shimmery white, or White DSP backing cardboard
Ok, ladies are you ready? Here are the directions
Color all over the inside of one side of the page protector. Scribble different colors in a random pattern.
Spray lightly with water
Close Page protector and smoosh the colors all around.
Open up the protector and lay your white card stock in between the pages of the page protector.
Close the page protector and smoosh the color onto the card stock
Remove card stock and let dry.
Honestly that is all there is to it. You can make this using any background colors you want. If you have any questions, drop me a line.
This first card is the one that inspired me to make the card I showed you yesterday. Unfortunately the artist didn't put her name on the back. Hopefully she will let me know who she is. I absolutely adore her use of the pocket silhouette stamp set.

It uses Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Crushed Curry. The stamp set used is Pocket Silouhettes. Can you believe I waited this long to get this set? I finally recieved it as one of my five free stamp sets I earned from Sale-a-bration. I have to say, being a demo sure has it's privileges!
If your interested in this technique, you can see my original post here. I'll be happy to share the technique, just leave me a comment or drop me a line.

UPDATE: I had so many people asking for a tutorial on this that I had to include where I got the instructions. I wish I could take credit for this, but the best instructions I found were here at Folding Trees. Hope all of those that asked have fun making these!

BABY WIPE BACKGROUND
Take a baby wipe and fold into fourths.
Take ink refills and squeeze a couple of drops along the edge of the baby wipe.
You can use as many different colors as you would like.
Line the edge of your baby wipe up to your glossy card stock and smear across the top.
Let it dry (it dries quickly)and decorate as desired.
You can also fold your baby wipe into a triangle and ink it up with refills.
Twist the baby wipe to distribute the colors.
Spin the baby wipe on glossy card stock to give a tie dyed effect.
This card show the swipe technique on the pick up truck, but I can't wait to give the tie dye technique a shot.
