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!
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!
