I recently attended Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live in Amsterdam. I LOVE going to events with other demonstrators, we have so much fun, talking about stamps, ink and paper, sharing creative ideas, and we laugh… a LOT! One of the highlights of any Stampin’ Up! event is swapping. We all make a stack of card fronts or 3D items, and swap them with other demonstrators. It’s a great way of getting heaps of inspiration, meet new people and check out stamps you might not have bought yet! However, this time because I was chosen to be a Display Stamper (more on that soon!) I didn’t get time to make any swaps. But I still collected a few things from my Stampin’ Sisters who didn’t want me to go home empty handed (they are so sweet!). I also received two gifts from my Stampin’ Mamas, one of which I have CASE’d today.
Michelle Last gave each person in her team at the event (of which there were a LOT!) a card front featuring this fabulous stamp set. I have used this one relatively recently on my Design Team project for Stinkin’ Inkers, but I had to pull it out again to make my own version of Michelle’s card.
This is one of those cards that looks kinda messy as your making it, as the little flowers and leaves overlap… but that is where the punched flowers come it. Not only are they pretty, but they hide the mess behind!
All the stamping on this card is in Basic Black Archival ink. Then before I punched out the large flowers with the coordinating Pansy Punch, I added a hint of colour with a sponge dauber and some Rich Razzleberry ink to tie in with the card base.
This card was finished with a layer of Basic Black card stock and a trio of Rhinestones. Before I leave you today I do have a confession to make about those Rhinestones… unfortunately they aren’t available at the moment (the current ones have sold out as part of the Retiring List!) but they will be back with us when the new Annual Catalogue launches on 1st June.
