I have just got back from Sydney Stampin’ Up! Regionals. What a great day!! There were lots of ‘WOW’ and ‘AAH’ moments. So much to take in! I can’t wait to give all these different ideas a go. I think that will have to wait a bit though until I get through the Christmas rush. It was so great to meet up with lots of demonstrators that I chat to online or that I stalk their blog. Of course, always a fun time with my stamping buddies too. I received lots of great swaps back but I will need to go through them and take photos. I will show you those soon. I can now show you my swaps that I did. I just kept to one design and did 2 different colours.
I started off doing the Old Olive. After stamping the flowers from ‘Elements of Style’, I used the blender pen and inkpad to colour them in slightly. This had been stamped on Very Vanilla, but I have to say it looks a little white in the photo. I spritzed the card with the Old Olive marker. A strip of Old Olive card was run through the Big Shot with the Very Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. I added some Adhesive Pearls. The sentiment is from ‘Teeny Tiny Sentiments’.
I decided to do some in the Rich Razzleberry. I quite liked how these turned out. I didn’t colour these ones. I added Rhinestones on these ones.
These cards were inspired by a card by Natasha Zandbergen here. Why don’t you stop by her blog sometimes. She does some beautiful cards!
After a big day, I’m heading off to bed. I will try and get back very soon to show you the swaps I received. Have a lovely Sunday!!!
