Over the next few days I will be sharing some of the swap cards I received at the Stampin’ Up! convention. I participated in one organized swap and swapped out 75 other card fronts I had made for general swapping. This card is the one I made for the organized swap. I love hydrangeas and was excited to get back the hydrangea stamp that retired a couple of years ago as part of the Best of Flowers stamp set. The smaller size makes it just right for this card.
I used markers to color the image directly on the stamp set then remoistened the ink by ‘huffing’ on the stamp before stamping it on the card stock. I love the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly punches and punching them out from the Champagne Glimmer paper adds a special touch of sparkle to this card.
Another hint I have for you is to stamp your greeting on an angle like I did in the lower corner. That way, you don’t have to worry about getting the stamp straight with the edges of the card. Stamping the greeting on an angle really speeds things up when you are stamping 48 of the same card. :o)
Reminder – The single stamps offer expires July 31! This is a great opportunity to buy just one stamp that suits your fancy instead of having to buy a whole set just for the one stamp you like. Check them out here, then order them while you can still get them! To order the supplies used in this project, visit my online store or click on the linked product names. Thank you for ordering. :o)
