Sheffield Training Swap Swap!
When we got back from demonstrator training in Sheffield one of my good friends Deb O'd had the great idea that we do a swap incorporating our favourite and just changing the colour combination that we used. There were 5 of us that signed up and we had to have them in this week. I have made this one by Kelly Austin and she has used the Bird on a Branch... She used the combination bashful blue, basic black and stamped on whisper white.
I have made the card in the same way but changed the combination to taken with teal, basic grey and stamped on whisper white. I think that you will agree Kelly has done a great job! One of the great things about being a demonstrator is the swaps that we get involved in - this is only one that I am in this week. My second being Cards for Men - more on that later though.
To make the card I have stamped the image in basic grey on whisper white with the flowers of the tree stamped in taken with teal and I then rounded the top corners, this is then mounted on taken with teal card stock which also has the corner rounded at the top. I have used the stamp from love you much to stamp the sentiment and then punched this out using the window punch I have stamped on taken with teal. I have added a brad to decorate - as on the original and a piece of grey taffeta ribbon stapled to the card blank to decorate the left hand side of the card.
I hope you like the cards and the colour combinations chosen - more crafting to be shown later! Debbi x x x
