Swapping with Stampin' Up! and Gorgeous Grunge

Swapping with Stampin' Up! and Gorgeous Grunge


Busy busy busy! So today I am in Telford for Stampin' Up! Regional Training. Then spending the rest of the weekend with family - what could be nicer? 

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 used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. The colours used are Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  I stamped randomly with Gorgeous Grunge to create the background. The sentiment is stamped and cut out using the Big Shot & a die from the On Film Framelits - the Big Shot Magnetic Platform makes this so easy to line up and you know it won't move! I matted it onto two Scallop Circle Punches (7/8" & 1 1/4") with Linen Thread popped behind. 


Hopefully everyone who receives one will like it - I love swapping and can't wait to share the ones I receive with you.
