Hand Lettered Greece Cards & Cow Tail Treat Swaps for the Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Trip Achievers Blog Hop July 2019

Welcome to the July 2019 Greek Isles Trip Achievers Blog Hop!  We've just returned from the Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Cruise and it was absolutely amazing!  The scenery was breathtaking, the food was delicious, it was great to catch up with stamping friends from around the world, and Stampin' Up! really spoiled us.

One of the highlights of any Stampin' Up! event is swapping cards/projects we have made with other demonstrators to share ideas and inspire one another.  I wanted to create something that would be a memento of the trip so I made these cards that spell out the word "Greece" using the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper and the Hand-Lettered Prose alphabet dies.   
My favorite pattern of the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is the one with the shades of blue and swirls of white that looks like rolling waves.  However, as I had 26 cards to make and only 2 sheets of the wave pattern I decided that some of the other patterns from the paper pack looked fun and worked just as well so I made a whole variety of "Greece" cards.  I hope everyone who received one liked them!
I also participated in the 3-D swap.  This swap is a bit trickier as the objects we need to keep in mind the portability, weight, and melting factor of the swaps we make.  I decided that something representative of NY, USA that demonstrators from other parts of the world might not have were Cow Tales candies.  I found mini Cow Tales, tied a trio of them with burlap ribbon, and then added the "You're udderly fantastic!" punch art.  I thought they were fun and tasty too!
Here are a couple photos of the amazing gifts and swaps I brought home:
We received several beautiful bags, many stamp sets and punches, and of course the new Stampin' Up! Fall/Winter/Holiday Catalog too!
My husband and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to attend this trip of a lifetime!  Stampin' Up! really is an amazing company to rep for and has enabled us to travel to so many different places we would never have seen otherwise.  Many thanks to my wonderful customers and Creative "Card"-iologists Team for helping me earn the trip!
