Send Me Soaring - Regional Swap

Hi Stampers!

Today I would like to share one of the Make and Takes from the San Antonio Regional.  Since I was already in San Antonio for Leadership I decided to spend an extra day and it was well worth it.

This cute card actually uses the stamp set Send Me Soaring from the Occasions Catalog.  But the stamps in that set are actually kites!  And as you can see there are no kites in this card.  We took the polka dot kite  and stamped it on whisper white card stock and then punched out the hearts and the leaf.  Clever idea to use your stamps in this way.  And the flower stem is the kite string. :)

We used the 1 1/4" circle punch to cut the leaf and to round the corners on the card.  I love when stamps and tools are so versatile. 

Stamp Set: Send Me Soaring (C125442), W125440)
Ink: Pool Party (122938), Calypso Coral (122939), Lucky Limeade (122935)
Card Stock: Calypso Coral (122925), Crumb Cake 120953), Whisper White (100730), Berry Blossoms DSP (122350), Sweet Shop Specialty DSP (125408)
Accessories and Tools: Pool Party 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (122975),Bitty Buttons 118761), Blossom Bouquet Punch (122464), Scallop Edge Punch (119882), Small Heart Punch (119881), 1-1/4" Circle Punch (119861), 1-3/8" Circle Punch (119601), Dimensionals 104430), Mini Glue Dots (103683)

So, I was asked to do this card for a make and take today for demos that didn't get to go to Leadership.  Problem is... I didn't order that stamp set, I don't have the small heart punch or some of the other products used to make this card.  I decided I would go through what I had and see how close I could get and still use the same technique.  This is what I came up with.  

I pulled out the polka dot stamp from For All You Do and the smallest heart from the Heart to Heart Punch.  Used a different Early Espresso DSP and sentiment and added a large pearl.  So when you see a card in a magazine know that you can recreate something similar using your Stampin' Up! products.

Stamp Sets: For All You Do (115360), Friendly Phrases (C126151), (W126149)
Ink and Paper are the same as the first card.
Accessories: Basic Pearl (119247) in place of Bitty button, Heart to Heart Punch (119881) in place of the small heart,

How about creating your own card using the Regional make and take as inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by...hope to see you tomorrow.
