Many of you know that when I first started my Stampin' Up! career, I was honored to be named the #4 Rising Star in the US! I was floored and so flattered! Well, that was almost 5 years ago now and one of the things that makes that so special is that as a group, many of us still keep in touch through swaps! This is a swap that I designed for our Rising Star Occasions Mini catalog swap!
This card takes it's inspiration from the Sending Love specialty designer series paper (Occasions p. 13)! I love these specialty papers, each one is a little unique and special and this one is no different. It is embossed with glitter and we all know how much I love glitter!!
I also used the Pretty In Pink satin ribbon (Occasions p. 27), the Pinking Hearts Border Punch (Occasions p. 11) and the Well Scripted Stamp set (Occasions p. 19).
I love the direction that we're going with these products! I'm using the clear mount blocks now starting with this catalog. They are very easy to use, just press the stamp onto the block and stamp away! I used craft ink on these cards and the stamp stuck to the block just perfectly! And, the new slim profile punches are so neat and look great piled up on my stamp table (well, they're in a heap right now with all the stamping I've been doing but who's keeping track)?
Of course, I had to use a couple different sheets of paper for my swaps so here are some other cards using different sheets of the designer paper. Enjoy!
