Sorry for the gap in posting but as you'll see in this post I've been busy with the new products from the Stampin' Up! 2017Occasions catalog.One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is I get to see the new catalog items early. I also get to join swaps. A "Swap" is when you make one card many times and you send them to a organizer and you get that many cards back. So I thought I'd share the card I made for this swap as well as a few of my favorite cards I received in this "Occasions Swap 2017".
For my card I chose my favorite color of Sweet Sugarplum which I combined with Soft Sky and Whisper White. I stamped the Love heart using Sweet Sugarplum randomly around the boarder of the front of the card base then I stamped the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set using Basic Grey Archival Ink. I then stamped the T-shirt & the sentiment with stamps from the Custom Tee stamp set using Sweet Sugarplum ink onto Whisper White cardstock and them I used the T-shirt Builder Framelit dies to cut out the T-shirt I used the heart shaped die from the Baker's Box thinlits.I cut out the clouds using the the Up & Away framelit dies. I used Wink of Stella on all 3 hearts to add bling because every card is better with bling. I used dimensionals to pop up the t-shirt on the Soft Sky cardstock that I attached to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and then I attached the pieces to the front of the stamped card base.
On the card to the left the demonstrator used the Party Animal Designer Series paper and the Party Animal Embellishments and the Birthday Blast stamp set and Star Blast Edgelit Dies. She also used Pacific Point ink and cardstock as well as Whisper White cardstock and a couple of Enamel Shape stars in Pacific Point and Enamel Shape dots in silver. I have always loved blue, yellow and white together. It looks so fresh and crisp.
For this last share the demonstrator used Island Indigo, Real Red & Whisper White cardstock. She cut the hot air balloon using the Up & Away thinlit dies. She then used versa ink & clear embossing powder to add the hot air balloons onto the Whisper White panel which she then used a Soft Sky ink wash in the middle of the Whisper White front panel to bring out the embossed balloons. She then stamped the sentiment in basic gray Archival ink onto vellum which she also embossed in clear powder. She punched out a tiny Real Red heart using the Heart Border punch. She attached s bit of silver metallic thread to the back of the large balloon before she stapled it to the front panel. She then attached the vellum and then the little heart to finish it up she used 3 rhinestones. The background embossed balloons are so pretty I can't wait to try it.
