Made it home yesterday from the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City and in the next couple of posts, I will share with you the cards that made to swap with other demonstrators.  The swaps are a great way for demonstrators to share card ideas using different techniques, color combinations, etc. The convention was lots of fun and attendees were able to get a “sneak peak” of the upcoming mini Holiday Catalog.  All I can say is “WOW!”  Just wait until you see the new products…the stamp sets, project kits and Designer Series Papers are wonderful.  Now to share convention swap #1…
The card was designed for a swap designated: Black and White with Color.  The guidelines specified that only one additional color could be added.  The flower from the “You’ve Got This” stamp set was used.  The pop of color was stamped with the background stamp using Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pad followed with stamping the bloom with Memento Black Ink. The bloom was fussy cut and adhered to cover the bloom stamped with StazOn White Ink.
