My friend Desiree lives in Idaho and hosts a card swap every few years and this year she rallied 15 gals to participate! I wanted to share with you the cards I made for the swap. Some of the supplies are retired Stampin' Up! products, but some you can still purchase! I'll add a supply list with item numbers at the bottom of this post so you can add them to your shopping cart when you're shopping in my online store!
Stampin' Essentials tips:
- My color inspiration was from Stampin' Up! DSP. Always an instant color palette to work with! I used the colors: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango, and Pool Party.
- Texture goes a long way! I embossed the center panel for some dimension and really like how the Island Indigo card stock looks against the Crumb Cake card base! Since the card is blank, it could be a masculine card too!
- My card layout was inspired by the card on page 21 of the 2013-2014 Catalog! Want a copy of the catalog? Place your Stampin' Up! orders thru me and one will automatically be sent to you! Want to look first then buy? EMAIL ME and I'll mail you a Catalog to browse through! You WILL love it!
- Minimal stamping! Sometimes its fun to paper craft without doing a ton of stamping! I stamped the scallop circle underneath the button using an image from the A Round Array stamp set. It coordinates perfectly with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch!
