Last Saturday was the Stampin' up! Brisbane Regional the last for the year in Australia. It was a relaxing fun filled day with lots of interesting speakers, fabulous demos by some of Queensland's very talented SU demonstrators, a lovely lunch and catching up with friends.

At these events we always make some swap cards and here's what I came up with this year.

These are based on Scraplings but mine are acutally larger, they are more like a bookmark really. I ended up making 30 of them to exchange. It's a bit  hard to see but I've used the fantastic new Butterfly punch from Stampin' Up! currently available in the newly released Summer Mini.

Card stock is Pumpkin Pie, Ballet Blue and Whisper White. The butterfly is three dimensional and this is the part that's hard t see. I've actually stamped up acetate on some of the cards and punched out a butterfly shape. Stamps sets are Butterfly Prints, Flight of the Butterfly, Swirl is from Season of Joy and the background is En Francais. ... can't remember where the little flower is from. Ink colours are Cameo Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Ballet Blue, Always Artichoke and Stazon White. Ribbon is 5/8" Ballet Blue and Linen Thread.

I received some lovely swaps in return and hopefully ... when I get around to it ... I will take a photo of them.
