It’s over for another year
Our Stampin’ Up! convention that is. We’ve had a fantastic time and I’ve gained so much inspiration and seen so many sneak peeks over the last few days … and I want to share as much as I can with you. So I’m going to post every single day for the next week – pix of swaps, freebie goodies we picked up along the way, recipes and even a few sneak peeks and news of what’s to come in the next few months!
So, first up is one of the two general swaps that I took with me. Some of my team kindly helped make the first colour variation and then I roped my hubby into helping with the other two! (thank you all )
The card base is a small square of Bermuda Bay (131286). A slightly smaller square of Pool Party card (124391) was run through the Big Shot with the Pretty Print embossing folder (132175). After stamping the smallest Festive Flurry snowflake (Wood 131778 or Clear 131781) with Bermuda Bay ink (131171) onto Whisper White card (106549) it was die cut out with the matching Festive Flurry framelit (132193). Buy the stamps and framelits together as a bundle and save 15% (Wood bundle 133284 or Clear bundle 133285). The small snowflake was adhered directly and centrally to the card front. The smallest and second largest snowflake framelits were then used in combination, to die cut a single snowflake shape from Bermuda Bay card. This was popped up on slivers of dimensionals, aligning it with the stamped version. Finally a Basic Rhinestone (119246) was added to the centre.
And for this gorgeous, glitzy version, it was Shimmery White card (121717), Brushed Silver card (124918) and Silver Glimmer Paper (124005). The stamping was done with Versamark ink (102283) and heat embossed with Silver EP (109131).
Strangely this year, I actually brought back some of these swaps. There was so much to do on a our two-day fun packed agenda that we just didn’t have enough time for swapping. Not to worry though, I picked this design on purpose so that I can use them as my Christmas cards now!
