2014 Founders Circle Swap

Mingle All The Way Founders Swap

I’m back from the Stampin’ Up! Founders Circle trip to St. George, UT!  It was an amazing trip, spending time with the top 100 demonstrators in the US and the top 20 demonstrators in Canada.  We were completely spoiled by the Stampin’ Up! staff!

One of the best parts of Founders Circle is swapping with everyone and seeing all the creativity from these very talented ladies.  This is the card that I swapped – I made 115 of these!  I had thought I chose an easy-ish design, but when you’re making 115 of anything, it quickly becomes clear that nothing is easy!  But I did have fun making these and hope you enjoy seeing one of my first cards using new Stampin’ Up! products from the Holiday Catalog.

  • I just love the Angled Tag Topper Punch carried in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Believe me, this is such a quick and easy way to create tags, whether you’re going to be using them on cards or making stand-alone gift tags.  Just be sure to cut your cardstock at a hair under 2″ so that it slides easily into the punch.  You can make the length any measurement you want!
  • I’ve used the new Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon for the top of the tag, held on by a Mini Staple with Stampin’ Up!’s new Handheld Stapler.  The Stapler has a nice, long reach so you can staple way in on your cardstock if you choose.
  • I pulled out an older embossing folder called Northern Flurry because it coordinated so nicely with the cute little snowflakes contained in the Frosted Sequins packet.  Use Glue Dots to hold the sequins onto your cardstock.
  • It’s fun to create a card layer that’s not straight – I simply cut my cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and after running it through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, adhered it at an angle then trimmed off the excess.
  • Adding a narrow strip of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock tied in the ribbon nicely.  Use a Two-Way Glue Pen for those skinny pieces!
