Stampin’ Up! Convention 2012 Swap

I leave for Convention in Salt Lake City in a little over 3 weeks, so I thought I'd begin making my swaps.  I've cut enough to make 100 of the card above, and then I'll design a second card and make 50 or so of those.  My new toys are beginning to arrive from the brand new Annual Catalog, and I wasn't sure which new stamp set to use, so I combined three different ones here, plus a new punch!  It's not a real easy card for a swap, but I started designing and couldn't stop adding!  Do you think my fellow demonstrators will like it?

  • Main leaf image and tone-on-tone stamping at the bottom are stamps from Summer Silhouettes stamp set.
  • Butterfly image is stamped with Papillon Potpourri stamp set and punched out with Elegant Butterfly Punch.
  • Color scheme includes two new In Colors – Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple.  They look so pretty together!
  • Black 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon is used to spice things up. 
  • Rhinestone Jewels are colored black with a Sharpie.
  • Black strip separating the two main colors is cut with the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim Die.  It doesn't show a lot, but try taking it out – it just looked yucky without it!
  • Birthday sentiment is from the From My Heart stamp set.
  • Don't forget the Dimensionals!  Both the butterfly and the birthday sentiment are popped up.  It makes a big difference!
