One of the highlights of attending convention is the fabulous social and interesting activity of card swapping. Everyone makes a heap of card fronts that you label with your name and details as well as the things you used to make it. It ultimately allows demonstrators to build samples from current catalogue inventory, especially with the stamp sets that you don’t have. Our customers get to benefit from the variety of samples they can look at a workshops. Here is the first of my swaps…..
To make this I made a background on whisper white cardstock using the Seeing spots stamp set inked in bashful blue and mellow moss. A small panel was made by inking up the On the Spot background with bashful blue. This was mounted on bashful cardstock. The medallion in the middle was made by stamping the flower in the circle with versamark and then rubbing some pastel over the top. This is the popping pastels technique. That was mounted on mellow moss and bashful blue cardstock with the corners removed with the slit punch.Gold brads and pop up dots were used for a bit of pazzazz…….
I only made about a dozen of these , as they were time consuming but they all got swapped and are out there in Stampin’ Up world………I’ve got a couple of others I made that I will publish later in the week.
I’ve got 100 examd to mark and 12 reports to write, better get moving…….hope my boss doesn’t read this LOL!!!!!!!
Happy stamping………..leave me a comment…..please! I will feel loved then! 🙂
