At OnStage we also swap with other fellow demos and I decided to use a couple of kits that I had from previous classes. I used the Tropical Chic stamp set. I love the colours that I’ve used. Granny Apple Green, Soft Sea Foam, Call Me Clover and a touch of pink with Rococo Rose. I have always loved pink and green together which is probably why I love this card so much.
The below photo is my work in progress. I love taking these types of photos as it shows the all the creativity that goes into making the cards.
This past weekend we have had out local Onstage event and our Stampers Anonymous team are doing a Swap. A Swap is where we make a set number of the same card for swap it with the others participating. There are 28 people participating this year which is fabulous. I really don’t mind making the same of the one type of card. I think that is the Administrator in me.
I chose to create a fancy fold card but it is a simple fancy fold. I used the Butterfly Wishes stamp set and the Woven Threads Designer Paper. I’ve used the In Colors as the card base and a coordinating colour for stamping.
At our Onstage Local event this year we swap cards or 3D items so that we can get inspired to be more creative with the products that we have on hand. Its also a great way to get some samples to show our customers when we don’t own a stamp set or set of dies that someone else does.
My swap this year was using the Wishing You Well stamp set using the wreath and ribbon. I hand cut out the ribbon and used the stamparatus to line up the wreath and the “Season’s Greeting” in the middle of the wreath. I must say the Stamparatus has come in very handy in so many different projects. If you don’t already have this tool you really need to buy one.
I used the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper has been great for these cards as I was able to get 9 cards out of 1 sheet of 12×12 paper. The papers were 10cmx10cm each.
These cards are fairly simple to stamp and assemble, but I do love the simple cards. I like to create simple cards so that if someone wants to duplicate the card they can fairly easily with the products that I list below.
