As a demonstrator, I often participate in idea swaps where I stamp 20 or so of the same card idea, then trade them with 20 other demonstrators so that I end up with 20 new ideas. It’s just one of the things I love about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator — sharing ideas (see other reasons I love it).
This card is one I created for a demonstrator swap before the new catalog came out. The stamp set is World Treasures (see it online) and I love the sentiment almost as much as I love the peacock! World Treasures is from the International Bizaar Product Suite (see it online) and the DSP in this suite is was featured by Stampin’ Up! on our Disney Incentive Trip pillow gifts!
I’m also loving the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder (also new — see it) and the Apothecary Accents Framelits (see them online) which are a perfect match for the shape of the sentiment in this stamp set. Gotta love Stampin’ Up! and the coordinating products!!
The colors here are new In Colors — Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Primrose Pink. Yup, same colors that I used yesterday for my Make A Cake birthday tag.
And a nice way to highlight a certain part of a larger stamp — try the Spotlighting Technique. Use a Circle Punch and punch out another image in a different color, then match it up to your main image. (see other examples of the technique from my blog)
