This card was my trade card for Stampin Up! Convention.  Recently returned from Salt Lake City and 2 days of jam packed stampin fun!  Its Stampin Up!'s 25th Anniversary and we celebrated in style!  There were prize giveaways, party celebrations and entertainment galore.  Had a wonderful time with two of my downline girls/friends and 6000 other Stampin Up! friends.  "Coffee and friends are the perfect blend."  This was my trade card for Convention and I offered this card at my last Stamp Camp.  Doesn't it just make you crave a cup of coffee?

This Fishin' Around card uses a Treat Cup and sand to give it the look of the ocean.  Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Baked Brown Sugar are the card colors.  So adorable!!!
And here's the bubble wrap technique again.  The water over the fish is done with a little plastic jewelry zip lock bag and blue gel or aloe.  Place behind the open window.  It is so stinkin' cute because it moves and looks like water!!!

Adorable as can be!!!

A card I saw at a presentation in Figi on Stampin Up!'s Incentive Trip.  Loved the colors.  The bubble technique is made by using bubble wrap, rubbing on ink pad and placing on card.  Super easy, great effect!  Window Frame framelits frame up the coral and seahorse.  Not sure who did this card to give credit.  You'll see this bubble wrap technique again soon!
And another cute card I got as a trade at Convention made with By the Tide Stamp Set.  This was made by a stampin friend, Connie Babbert.  What a great way to use this set. Kudos for creativity!
This is another By the Tide beachy card.  I made it using Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and White.  How can a lobster be so cute?
If you missed the last Beach Party Card Camp, you missed a LOT of fun and some great cards.  The colors were gorgeous and featured some of the new In Colors and colors brought back from our recent color renovation.
