One of the best things about being a Stampin' Up!® demo is you get to know stampers from all over the world. I'll probably never meet most of them in person, but just chatting on web sites and forums is fun. Two of my long-time forum friends are Jean and Darrah. They're both incredibly amazing women, and have both done so much in their lifetimes that it's hard to believe they've only lived once! So today's swap is from Jean.
I love her colors and the way Jean used punches. I also really like stamping on designer paper! And did you notice the ribbon? I wasn't brave enough to stamp on the ribbon, but I love the way Jean's turned out.
Even though I loved the colors, I wanted to "spring it up" a little. So I used colors and designer paper from the Sunny Garden designer series paper pack. Here's mine…
The basic layout and idea – still Jean's. Here are the supplies, and then I'm out the door!! Thanks for stopping in. (Oh, yes, I did add a little 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds to the designer paper, thank you for asking. Maybe it's because I'm singing soprano in the Oratorio Society, but now whenever a project needs a little "something," my first inclination is to add glitz. Go figure!!)
