Dallas & my Shoebox Swap (Part 1)

Hi! It's been sooooo long since I have posted! Sorry about that! We went to Dallas last weekend for a 4-day weekend to see the Dallas Cowboys play in their NEW Cowboys Stadium! I was in awe when we saw the stadium. It's absolutely amazing!! There was nothing held back in building this stadium! We flew into Dallas on Saturday morning, checked into the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel (fabulous!!!), went on a tour of the new stadium, had an autograph session and dinner with a few Dallas Cowboys players...and that was all on the first day!!! Here I am with my husband during the tour of the stadium the day before the big game! I'll have some more pictures later. Scroll down for some stampin' stuff!!

I hosted a Showbox Swap with a few of my Demonstrator friends on Friday evening. We had a great evening and I got some fabulous ideas!!! I will share them with you today and over the next 2 days.

Here is mine...I hope you can see the shimmer on the Bashful Blue Cardstock. It really is pretty!!! I learned about this technique on Heather's blog here. She has a great video tutorial! I combined a little of our new Frost White Shimmer Paint with some rubbing alcohol in an empty Mist bottle. Give it a good shake and mist your cardstock. It's so easy and so pretty!!

We also used Shimmer Paint on a Sponge Dauber and "inked up" the stamp on this card. Although it didn't show up very well on the photo, there is a "sponged" rectangle in the middle with all the snowflakes. It's very pretty. I hope you can click on the pictures so you can get a closer look!

We used the Scallop Edge Punch to create this medallion look. And the white cardstock is our Shimmery White Cardstock. Very classy card!!

Ok, I will have more tomorrow. Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday! Have a great week!
