Hello Stampers!  I'm glad you stopped by today.  I went to a awesome Stampin' Up Demonstrator Event this past Saturday at my friend Debbie Jaegers house.  Debbie puts on a awesome event every year.  It is a all day event, great company, great projects and of course great food.  For this demo event all demonstrators must design a demonstratable card that takes about 8-10 minutes to complete.  We must pre-package kits for each demonstrator to complete that card.  Want to see my card?
 So what do you think?  This card is super fast and easy, how much better can it get?
Here are all the supplies used for this card:
Stamps:  Keepsake Ornaments & More Merry Messages
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla & Be of Good Cheer designer series paper
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler & Gumball Green
Accessories:  Keepsake Ornaments Framelits, Cherry Cobbler 1\2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Rhinestones and dimensionals
Did I forget to mention that there were prizes given away at this demo event?  Yes, everyone won a door prize.  I won the Early Espresso 1/2" Scallop Tulle Ribbon and a package of Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons.  Of course Debbie had them packaged all pretty. 
Want to hear some more exciting news?  I won 2nd place for my project.  I was so excited!  I won a wonderful gift bag filled with the following goodies:
Champagne Glimmer Paper
Everyday Happenings Designer Printed Calendar and Display
Festival of Prints Designer Paper Stack
Large Basic Pearls
Gold Stampin Dazzle Marker
Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon
How wonderful is that. I was shocked that I won second prize since there were so many wonderful cards there.  Sandi Flowers won first prize, great job Sandi.  Margaret Hall won third prize, great job Margaret. 
Here is my swap card for the demo event.

I decided to go with some non-traditional Christmas colors.  What do you think?  I really like how this card came out.  Did you notice all those pearls?  Yes, there were 25 pearls on each card for 18 people.  Do you know how many pearls that is?  450 Pearls...WOW! 

Here are all the supplies used for this card:

Stamps:  Keepsake Ornaments, Greetings of the Season & More Merry Messages

Paper:  Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Pool Party & Very Vanilla

Ink:  Soft Suede & Pool Party

Accessories:  Keepsake Ornaments Framelits, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Large Scallop Edgelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Extra Large Oval Punch, Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Sponge, Basic Pears, Champagne Shimmer Mist, Frost White Shimmer Mist & dimensionals
