Today I am on my way to OnStage Live in Salt Lake City. OnStage Live is Stampin’ Up!’s convention. Demonstrators gather for three days to share their love of stamping. It is my first-ever convention; while I have been to other Stampin’ Up! conferences, I have never been to the main event in Salt Lake City before. So, I can’t wait!
Swapping is always a part of these events, so I thought it would be appropriate to share my swaps today. I like to make both a full card and a card front for swapping.
My full card is a gift card holder for a grad. I used one of our little 3 1/8″ square envelopes for my pocket. I sealed it, cut off a sliver of the top edge, and punched a notch with my 1-1/2″ circle punch. I used the Confetti Textured Embossing Folder along with products from the It’s My Party Suite in the Occasions Catalog. So festive, isn’t it?
The inside explains the abbreviation and leaves space for a note.
This is the card front that I made for swapping. If you follow my blog, it may look familiar to you – the card I posted Friday (shown below with a background of “Botanical Blooms”) was my prototype for this one. For my swap card, I used “Dots for Days” in the background, with Soft Sky stamped off. The flowers are from “Wild About Flowers”, and the greeting is from “Suite Sayings”.
Thanks for stopping by! I will post more from OnStage Live over the next few days – here, on facebook and Instagram.
