Last week I was in Salt Lake City, Utah, at Stampin’ Up!’s annual convention which is open to demonstrators and is an opportunity for demonstrators from all over the US as well as other countries to get together with Corporate leaders to (amongst other things) recognise achievements, to hear and see new products and ideas.
Convention 2015 is called ‘Inspire, Create, Share’ and one one of the best parts is to swap card ideas with your fellow demonstrators……. here is my swap:
I think this card would suit most any occasion as it has the simple greeting of ‘Hello Sweet Friend’ from the ‘Six Sided Sampler’ Stamp Set.
Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Whisper White ~ scored @ 4 1/4. I used the new thicker Whisper White card that was introduced at the beginning of June – it makes fabulous card bases.
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White ~ this was the regular thickness card but cut with the Tiny Wave rotary cutter which is an attachment for the Stampin Trim. The right hand side was then run thru the Big Shot with the Boho Chic embossing folder then the edges were sponged with Mint Macaron ink.
Layer 2: 4 1/4 x 2 1/4 Mint Macaron Card, edges sponged with Mint Macaron ink
Layer 3: 4 x 2 Whisper White, again the edges were sponged with the Mint Macaron Ink.
The stamp set for the main image is Stampin’ Up!’s World of Dreams stamp set. A little adhesive from a 2-way glue pen and a spinkle of Dazzling Diamonds glitter finished of the focal part of the card.
Some of the Silver Metallic thread was wound around the two smaller layers and tied with a simple knot.
Greeting is stamped on White Card and punched with the Washi Label punch then layered onto Mint Macaron using the same punch before being attached to the base card with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I made about 32 of these, while it is a very plain design there is a lot of sponging on all of the elements so it did take some time to complete them – and for the first time ever I had to take the pieces with me and assemble in my hotel room the night before convention started!!!!!
Here are the main supplies used:
