Rock and Roll Swap Card

So, if you’ve never been to a Stampin’ Up! event, let me fill you in on an addicting activity that usually happens called “swapping”.  See, the first couple of times I went to a regional event or convention, I was told to bring some card fronts to trade with other demos…so I’d bring like 20…. or fewer.  Then I would get there and see so many amazing cards that I so desperately wanted to take home and drool over and I quickly learned that 20 was definitely NOT enough! Smile 

So, this year I made around 80 swaps for convention – 40 of two different designs.  Today I thought I’d share one of my swaps:

Ever since I saw the Love and Care hostess stamp set in the Summer Mini, I knew the big flower would be perfect for the “Rock and Roll” technique.  So, I decided to play with that for my swap. 

The center flower paper is all hand-stamped.  To make the More Mustard/Bravo Burgundy flowers, I first inked up the flower with More Mustard.  Then before I stamped, I took the stamp and rolled the edges around on the Bravo Burgundy ink pad.  Then I stamped my image onto my paper.  So, it took a bit of time, but it gives you a fun effect, don’t you think?  Then just stamp the rest of your flowers like normal and you’re done!

  1. Such a beautiful card!!!!!

    **I have a very important question/ Plea for help: **
    – Help! I am in desperate need of some organization of my stamps & stamp sets.
    Do you have any suggestions for storage? What do you use to organize/ store all of your stamp sets & stand-alone stamps?

    • Hi Kally! Thanks for stopping by. I use a bookcase/shelf unit from IKEA to store my stamps in cases. Singular stamps I have a few different methods. I’ll try to post some pictures of how I’m dealing with storage these days and I’ll send you a note with some other ideas too. Hopefully you are using those stamps and not just storing them! 😉

Please leave a comment! I love hearing from you.
