Strength & Hope Swap Card

Saturday night I attended a demonstrator meeting held by Monika Davis.  It was my first and I am so excited she invited me to become a member of her PAWS group.  It was so much fun!  I met some great Stampin' Up' ladies and came away with some wonderful cards from the swap.

Cindy Schuster did a presentation for us on My Digital Studio and we made two hybrid scrap book pages.  We did two "make and takes", one of them an easel card created by Monika using the new Triple Punches in the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  I'll have to show you that later this week.

First I would like to show you the card I made for the swap.  I call it a "flurry of butterflies".  :)

I randomly stamped the Strength & Hope butterfly on Very Vanilla card stock with Pretty in Pink and Perfect Plum ink. I stamped off once with the Perfect Plum to make it more pastel.  Both layers are torn.  The top layer was torn and sponged.  The Pink Pirouette layer was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Ribbon and pearl are the final touch.

Stamp Sets:  Strength & Hope, Happy Greetings
Ink:  Perfect Plum, Pretty in Pink
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery
Accessories:  Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Certainly Celery 1/8" Taffetta Ribbon, Basic Pearls

I would also like to show you the the Strength & Hope hybrid scrap book page designed by Cindy.  All I need to do is add a picture of my friend and I when we did the Avon Breast Cancer Walk.  By the way the walk was awesome.  If you have ever thought about being apart of that walk I highly recommend it.  Just make sure you TRAIN!

REMEMBER...During the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog sales period Stampin' Up! will be donating $2 from the sale of each Strength & Hope stamp set and digital kit to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  It's a wonderful stamp and a great cause.
