Happy Sunday friends! I'm back from Orlando and while I had a great time in Orlando and learned so much I'm so happy to be home and spending time with my family. I have one more swap card to share with you from this weeks Leadership Conference. This is a card I made for an organized swap that I've been in for several events and the ladies are fabulous talents and make great cards. I decided to use the Easy Events stamp set which is a very versatile stamp set for any occasion and is updated with lots of products from the new Spring catalog. The cardbase is Pool Party and I embossed with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder and Big Shot. Next I cut a heart, out of Real Red Core'dination cardstock, with the Hearts Collection Framelit, embossed it with the Hexagon embossing folder and then sanded it. I cut out some hexagons out of the More Amore Speciality DSP. I also added a strip of DSP from the same paper pack (since it's distressed around the edge of the 12x12 piece of paper I sponged around the other edges with Primrose Petals ink so it was uniform and matted that on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that I punched with the Scallop Border punch.
For the main stamped image I stamped it in Basic Black in on Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged around the edges with Sahara Sand ink. I used a blender pen and classic ink pads to color in the image. To dress things up I added little tags of Primrose Petals Stiched Satin and Victorian Lace ribbon and I used dimensionals to attach the greeting to the card due to all the ribbon and heart layers.
I love how this card turned out and so did my swap ladies. I'm still working on valentine's and may be having to make more of these, we'll see.
