Swap Cards

September 8, 2009

On Thursday, local demonstrators have a Field Training session from Stampin’ Up! I’m quite excited as it is the first SU training session I’ve had the chance to go to. As well as getting the training, I’m looking forward to meeting other demo’s from around Wellington. Always fun to get a bunch of creative girls together. And in thinking about that, I know that there will be a lot of crafting talent in the room – with swap cards ready to go. After a bit of thought, I’ve started on mine. Reasonably simple, but using one of my favourite sets: Embrace Life.


I am also discovering  how much I love the Haiku DSP. When I first saw it in the catalogue, I wasn’t that interested in it…. but having had it arrive for a class I’d planned, I’ve had fun playing with it in all sorts of projects. And now, I’m LOVING it. It’s based in Earth Elements (Old Olive, More Mustard) but includes Tangerine Tango and So Saffron. Colours that I find easy to work with at the moment. Plus patterns that make it really easy to use on any type of card. I have a feeling you might see some more examples using this great pack of DSP!

I’ve used Blender Pens to colour the blossom image… and chose to stamp the out line in Chocolate Chip. TIP: I find using Chocolate Chip or Basic Gray to stamp an image for colouring gives it a softer look than using Black.
