Here's one of my four swaps:
The rules of a swap are that you have to use current product and all Stampin' Up! items. Since the new catalog just came out July 1 and we leave July 12, time is a factor. For this card I used the following items:
STAMP SET: Strength & Hope (pg. 4 of Summer Mini - only available through Aug 31, 2011)
CARDSTOCK: Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive
DSP: Paisley Petals (pg. 184)
INKS: Pretty in Pink & Old Olive
PUNCHES: 1" & 1 1/4" CIRCLE PUNCHES & Corner rounder Punch
DIES: Clearlits Die (pg. 224)
RIBBON: Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta (pg. 195)
MISC: Sponges, Dimensionals, Rhinestones & Glue Dots
This stamp set, Strength and Hope, is in my opinion a staple stamp set. We, unfortunately, all know way too many people who have had the cancer diagnosis and are fighting a tough battle. The butterfly is a symbol of Hope. I will be using this set for years to come to have cards made with this set on hand at all times.
Check back Tuesday a.m. for my favorite swap!!
