I love new Annual Catalogue time… not just for all the awesome new stamping products, but because my team always does a card swap! This is great because my budget never matches up with my wishlist, so it’s nice to see how other stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and other embellishments are used. In this swap I got 14 different cards and so I thought I would put together a couple of groups to share with you.
In this group I used sunflowers as a theme. I just love the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, and there are also some sunflowers in the Jar of Flowers bundle. Both of these are definitely on my wishlist and seeing these cards just makes me what them more!
The card on the left shows off the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle with some vellum, Flowers for Every Season 6×6 Designer Series paper and Stampin’ Blends. I love all the layers with this card and the Linen Thread adds a nice simple touch. (This card was made by Laurie Alexander)
On the right is the Jar of Flowers bundle along with some of the 2020-2022 In Colour 6×6 Designer Series paper and the Bumblebee Gingham Trim. I really like the colours for the flowers, not too bright or overpowering. (This one was made by Diane Kent)
These other two cards both used the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. On top it was paired with the Bumblebee Gingham Trim and the In Good Taste Designer Series paper for a nice, simple card with some country feel to it. (This card was made by my team leader Jenn Tinline)
The bottom card adds in some Misty Moonlight Ribbon and uses the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. Misty Moonlight has quickly become a favourite of mine and I really like it on this card. (This one was made by Alison Mcaulay)
There are lots of reasons why I love my team and the inkspiration I get from these swaps is definitely one of them.
If you’d like to join my team now is a great time because you can choose an additional stamp/tool bundle of your choice from the catalogue on top of the $165 worth of Stampin’ Up! products. Check it out on my website and let me know if you have any questions; email@example.com
Next Tuesday I’ll be showing off a few more cards so make sure to follow my blog to get notified whenever I post.
