Summer Mini Swap


With the launch of Stampin’ UP’s Summer Mini Catalog, I participated in a demonstrator swap. I made 10 identical cards and sent them to our hostess, Karen Povis Graf. She sorted them, and I received 9 different cards back.  This is a great way to get ideas and inspiration from some very talented demonstrators.   I received some fabulous swaps. You can see all of the swaps on Karen’s blog with her posts starting on May 1st.

The purpose of the swap was to feature products from the Summer Mini Catalog.   I received them just in time to display at theT.A.L.K of the Town Shopping Expo.   It’s always great to have lots of samples with current products to display to potential customers.
I used Tangerine Tango cardstock as my card base and ran it through the Big Shot using the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Beyond the Garden DSP was mounted onto Whisper White cardstock.   This was wrapped with Daffodil Delight 1/8” taffeta ribbon. 
The greeting is from the Pretty Postage stamp set. It was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Tangerine Tango embossing powder.  I punched this out with the Scallop Square punch. The mat for this was cut from the Scallop Squares Duo BIGZ Die with the Big Shot.
This is a bright and cheerful card perfect for a summer greeting of any kind.  It was very easy to put together and make in production.   I get excited any time I get to emboss whether it’s dry embossing with a folder or heat embossing with embossing powder. Doing both on the same project is just too cool.
By the way….The next T.A.L.K. of the Town Shopping Expo is August 6th and 7th.  Hope to see you there!
