This week I'm away at the 2015 Stampin' UP! Convention in Salt Lake City and I'm sharing my convention swap cards with you! I stamped 180 cards to take with me to swap with my fellow demonstrators!
When working on designs for my Stampin' Up! Convention Swap cards, I knew I wanted to stamp this design but wasn't sure about the color combo… I ended up making the one in the center with Wisteria Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight.
I used the Birthday Blossoms stamp set for the stamped flowers.. to make it easy, I stamped them in black ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and punched them out with my Pansy Punch. I added a Daffodil Delight flower punched with the Petite Petals punch and then the super fun White Perfect Accent dots in the centers!
The lovely Expressions Natural Elements wooden accents are glued to each of the punched banners. Watch a video HERE for more info on the wooden elements.
Not sure if you can see it well in the photo, but for the leaves, I stamped them with Cucumber Crush ink, and then colored them in with my Blender Pen. It just spreads around enough green ink to give the leaves some color, without it being too dark.
You could also take some extra time and shade them in even more, but when stamping 80 of the same card, I didn't have time to do more detailed shading.
I will have a video tutorial for you soon, to show you a great tip on making the double banner with the Banner Triple punch.
For each flower center, I used a White Perfect Accents and used 1 of each size. These neat white dots come in 3 sizes and have 75 in each pack! See them on pg 161 in the 2015 catalog, or HERE in my online store.
Here are the 3 color combos I created, before deciding on the Wisteria Wonder version.
