Now there’s a snappy title! Yes, this is my swap for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Local event in Telford this weekend. It’s not a great photo because I took it at night – waited all day yesterday for it to get light and it didn’t really happen.
Anyway, I’ve made about 40 of these little devils, although when we demonstrators make swaps, we only do card fronts, to save on supplies... because what we’re really swapping is the idea.
This is an idea I CASEd from what I think is a non-SU project that I saw on Pinterest. I struggled to get the lovely embossed effect just by using the Versmark pad so I hit upon the brilliant idea (if I say so myself) of using Timeless Textures, stamped repeatedly to build up the ink towards the tip of the leaf.
Although I love the Clean and Simple (CAS) look, it did feel a little bare, so I embossed the background with the brick wall... remembering just in time to stamp the greeting first. I do hope people like my swaps – I can’t wait to see what I get in return! I’ll report back next week.
