STAMPAWAY CONVENTION & Pink Saturday & Passion Parade

Happy Pink Saturday to everyone, if you haven't found my blog through Beverly's Pink Saturday Blog Hop, please go visit all the others via her blog at: www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com or take a look at Passion Parade over at http://myricandreasen.blogspot.com

Today is the annual STAMPAWAY CONVENTION here in Cincinnati, Ohio at the newly remodeled an expanded Sharonville Convention Center!!!  I've been anxiously awaiting this day since I missed it last year because we were moving.  I am prepared with my stash of ATC's to trade with all the others waiting for the doors to open at 9am; my youngest, Kerri will be trading her ATC's as well!!!


This is one of the ATCs I've made quite a few of that I will be trading.  I used a white gem cardstock for the background, stamped the lovely face using ColorBox brown ink and applied Tim Holtz distressing embossing powder in dusty concord to her.  Heated it up and once it dried and cooled scraped away the fine particles for the "distress" look.  Used Tim Holtz tissue tape on the right side and bottom an I inked those to "age" it with ColorBox chestnut roan ink.  Next I stamped a Michael's $1.00 spot stamp: typewrite with the words "write your own story" using StazOn jet black. I stamped just the typewriter image again, separately on card stock an cut it out and then used pop dots to adhere over original stamped image. (I love giving my cards dimension, depth) I added a touch of ColorBox rouge to her lips, the two metal brads in the corners and finished off with inking the edges all the way around with the StazOn jet black again.  Im pleased with the final result and hope others will be too.

Very excited because Tim Holtz will be here demonstrating all day long - the man is so charismatic and amazingly talented - so inspiring!!  Wish my step-mom could be here too, but she is vacationing, lucky her, or maybe not so luck since she's missing this FUN convention - ha ha.

Off to create more ATC's, hope everyone has a Fun Pink and Creative Weekend!!

Beautiful stamped work --- I'm still trying to determine what ATC means. Did I miss it in the post? Hmmm, can't figure out the acronym. Anyway, very attractive artwork you have there. I have (or had) a ton of Stampin' Up stamps but I'm a "failed stamper" for some reason. I'll have to think about that - don't know why it's that way - cuz your work is very inspiring.

Hope you have a ton of fun at the convention. Will you be getting lots of photos for future posts? Goodness, I presume you're finished with the convention and perhaps basking in the creativity now.

Enjoyed your post - great instructions for other creators!
