I have a group of friends I swap cards with every now and then. We all make a bunch of the same card, and then swap with each other. It’s fun – and gives us great ideas and samples using sets we might not have. Here’s the one I just swapped. It’s a little different than my swap; I kept changing it and forgot to save one of the final cards. Over the next few weeks, I’ll show you the swaps from my friends.
Stamp set: Creative Elements; Ink: Soft Suede, Blushing Bride classic; Paper: Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Beau Château designer series paper; Other: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2-way glue pen, modern label punch, scallop oval punch, lace ribbon border punch, basic pearls, stampin’ dimensionals, smooch paint (top coat), sponge, Tombow multi adhesive
This is a pretty straightforward card. I stamped the flowers several times in Soft Suede on Blushing Bride card stock and cut them out and layered them. The butterfly was created using the “Rock & Roll” technique. You ink the stamp with a lighter color (Blushing Bride), then ink just the edges in a darker color (Soft Suede). And I really, really like these colors together.
It’s very glittery! Wait until you see the Dazzling Details in the Holiday Mini Catalog! You’re going to love it. It gives a great glittery look, but it stays put. No stray flakes to give you away as a glitter addict.
Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by.
