Leadership Swap #1 - So Loved

Yippie, yahoo and hooray! Tomorrow morning, I am flying off to sunny (hopefully) Orlando, FL for Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference!

OMG, I SOOOO need this break! It will be exciting and fun to see so many of my demo friends again. I know I've told you before, but it bears repeating, one of the BEST things about being a demo is the friendships you make. There just aren't too many unfriendly stampers out there. And boy, do we have fun when we are together!

One fun thing we demos always do is exchange Swap cards. We make a huge amount of just one card and then trade with other demos so we get lots of great ideas to share! It is so much fun and I love seeing all the creative talent in this company.

The card I'm sharing today is created with the Love You Much stamp set which is part of the Love You Much Bundle Special that is going on until Jan. 31st. Click HERE to view the flyer and pricing information. The entire bundle is 20% off retail and you get a stamp set, punch and designer series paper - ALL NEW!

For those of you who place your order for the bundle with me by Friday, January 23rd, YOU will be able to attend a FREE class using your new Stamps, Punch and Paper!
The class will be on Friday, February 6th choose either 10 am or 7 pm.

Note: Right now, you need to place your order for this special directly with me instead of thru my website. One of the items is backordered due to the popularity of this special and the website won't allow you to order it from there. I am still able to get it for you by placing the order internally. Be sure to e-mail me and I'll get it done for you right away!

To create my swap card, I used Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the large heart image with Basic Black ink and colored in the flowers with a Real Red marker. It was then trimmed out with my Paper Snips. I mounted it on dimensionals and placed it on top of a scallop of Real Red cardstock which was cut with my BIG SHOT! Sooo easy, I used the Scallop Circles #2 die and finished those babies in no time! Yahoo! Love my BIG SHOT!

I stamped the Whisper White background with the multi-heart image (which matches the punch, by the way) in Real Red ink. The scallop circle received an accent of Black Gingham ribbon and bow and the greeting was stamped on Whisper White. It was then punched out with the Word Window punch and layered under the heart.

It's so funny, this card did not turn out at all like the idea I started with, but I'm so happy with the result! Serendipity at it's finest!
Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you liked it too!
Happy Stamping!
