|Control Freak Stampers at Stampin' Up! Convention 2015|
I used the new Birthday Blossoms stamp set for my first card. I love this layout and have used it over and over again with different stamp sets and different color combinations. It is one of the layouts that I featured in my first Pocket Full of Sketches book. (Watch for Volume 2 of my popular card layout book to be released in August!) I really love the way the bright colors (Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, and Cucumber Crush) pop against the black!
My second swap card is one of the cards that I designed for my July Stamp of the Month Club featuring the Watercolor Wings stamp set. Here is the card for the kit:
Can you spot the difference? It's subtle. I "stepped up" my swap card a little by using the Fluttering Embossing Folder on the Tangelo Twist cardstock and adding a layer of Basic Black cardstock. I also stamped the butterfly a little differently to incorporate the Hello Honey color in the stamped image.
