In just under a fortnight I will be attending Stampin’ Up! regional training. Stampin’ Up! events really are something to behold, the sight of hundreds of women (and men) dancing around, waving their arms, and screaming at the tops of the lungs for free products as part of prize patrols, really is something you have to witness to understand. I LOVE attending Stampin’ Up! events, they are definitely a highlight of being a demonstrator (for a full list see HERE!).
A big part of these events is swaps, and last week I started to prepare mine. Swapping is like a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator tradition – each demonstrator makes a pile of card fronts, or 3D items, or anything really with Stampin’ Up! products, and takes them to swap with other demos. Its a great way of not only getting a massive amount of inspiration, but also meeting new friends (and getting a whole heap of chocolate!).
So, I thought I was going to use Flower Patch to make my swaps this year. I stamped and stamped and stamped, in just about every colour, with every stamp in the set – and could I find something I wanted to make 50 of? Nope….. But, I did make this card, which I do LOVE!
I love the layered look this stamp set creates. Here I have layered Pink Pirouette and Blackberry Bliss to create some gorgeous blooms, finished off with some Lost Lagoon accent flowers. This stamp set also has an awesome coordinating die set (and they come bundled together for 15% off!), to fussy cut this lovely blooms without any of the fuss!
I adore the sentiments in this stamp set ‘You Overwhelm Me with You Awesomeness’ – I was hoping to include this in my swaps, just because I love seeing what other Demonstrators produce, I think they are all super awesome and talented – however, I have an even better swap idea – so watch this space!
