Stampin' Up! UK Convention Swaps

Stampin' Up! UK Convention Swaps


Wow! What a fantastic few days I have had in Manchester at the 2013 Stampin' Up! European Convention!

One thing which also always happens at Stampin' Up! events is "swapping". This is where you make a batch of identical card fronts or 3-d items to exchange with fellow demonstrators so you end up with lots of ideas showcasing different stamps, styles and techniques. I made 100 Gift Tags to swap - that is all of them in the picture above!



I have realised that I didn't take a picture of an individual tag but you get the gist from the picture above!  The cute baby grows are from the Baby Tees Jumbo wheel, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White card and coloured using the In Color 2012-2014 Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen.  They were then "fussy cut" using the fabulous Paper Snips - now this was a good idea when I started - after cutting out 200 I was not so sure!  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, stamped and punched out using the Word Window Punch and layered on a piece of matching In Color card punched with the Modern Label Punch.

The baby grows were mounted on circles cut using the Circles Collection Framelits from the Designer Series Paper Stack and Whisper White card. The tag base was cut from Chocolate Chip card using the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. A piece of Satin Stitched Ribbon tied with Whisper White Baker's Twine finished the tag.

Thank you to everyone who swapped with me! And a huge thank you to my lovely husband for his help with the Big Shot!
