Always to the Max


031 My Stampin' Pretty Pals and I enjoyed a card swap at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City last month.  Amazing artistic talent!  I'll be sharing plenty more.

We also included my Stampin' Up! Service Account Manager (also referred to as a "SAM"–think Mary Fish's "handler"), Maxine Conrad.  Her swap card is above, created with the Because I Care hostess stamps set. Absolutely exquisite.  I'm really diggin' the color combo.

Max is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and her blog "Stamp to the Max" blog is delightful.  Max and I managed to take a little time out together at convention on the left.

  1. Thank you Benjaman 🙂 I used the smooch spritz at the end but what I did around the edges was simply fray the edges and then sponged the edges using Cherry Cobbler ink.

  2. Gorgeous card Maxine! I hear a lot about you and it’s great to put a face with a name now. You are a doll!

    Thanks for sharing that Mary. Have a great weekend!

  3. That’s a WOW card in my opinion. As everyone said before me the color combo is wonderfully chic. Love, love the misting around the image rectangle – is that smooch mist or the color spritzer? Just beautiful. TFS!

  4. Thank you for your comments my friends. Mary, how sweet of you to showcase my card (not so sure about the picture of me however LOL) I love working with you! You are truly an inspiration! Love ya girl x

  5. Hi Ann: The dishy bag is my gift from Stampin’ Up! for having earned Founder’s Circle. I plan to use it as my carry-on when I fly to St. George, UT for a retreat in September.

    Hugs, M

  6. This card is fabulous! The color combination is terrific. It is always nice to see color combos that step out of the box in such a fashionable way. [And, speaking of fashionable, I love that bag you are holding–tell us more!!]
