Today is going to be a great day, but I can’t imagine how it could be better than my yesterday. Today I get to experience the joy of Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog with tons of my friends and team members (also friends) – while I’m also recovering from the wall-to-wall excitement of yesterday’s Spring Stamp-Along. As part of the event, I hosted a card swap. Today I’m sharing my swap for the event. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Fabulous Flamingo & Tabs for Everything. My card features two stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog – Fabulous Flamingo (a photopolymer multi-step stamp) and Tabs for Everything (a fun set with lots of opportunity to build words). Here’s a look at Fabulous Flamingo: All of the images, including the background of leaves on the Lemon Lime Twist panel, are from the set. The two words are stamped with Tabs for Everything, punched with a 1″ Circle punch and framed with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Here’s a look at the Tabs for Everything bundle: How cute! Even if the set and punch continue, the bundled pricing retires as the end of this catalog period.
- Color Combination. While Flirty Flamingo will retire (unless it’s saved by a color refresh), I still had to pull it out with this fun flamingo. Funny thing – when I sat down to design my swap card for this event, I didn’t intend to mock the colors from my card for the OnStage event in November, but I did. Here’s a look at my swap card using Bird Banter (you can click on this picture to see the original post for this card): Apparently, I love these colors together. If you like this combination as much as I do, please save this:
- Infinity Shots. When I make multiples of a project, I like to line them all up and grab an infinity shot of the cards. It’s just a fun way to capture all the work in one place. Here’s a fun shot of these cards (not all of them made it into the picture): And here’s another view:
