At pretty much every Stampin’ Up! event there is some swapping going on. What does that mean? Well each person swapping will design a card (or whatever is being swapped), then make a specific number of them, turn them in to a coordinator, who then divides them up among those participating so that you get back one of everyone else’s card. The Thailand Incentive Trip also includes a swap. Now I haven’t been on one of these big Incentive Trips before so this is my first one and I wasn’t sure what to do for a swap.
I decided I wanted to tie it in to our trip a little bit and in looking at the resort and the rooms that we are getting the color of the decor is purple – so that’s what I wanted to use. And then there is gold. I wanted different shades of purple for my swap.
I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks – the big medallion mask is what I used. On a placed it over a piece of Whisper White card stock and then used Sponge Daubers and ink to add different shades of color. Starting from the center I used Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum.
I heat embossed with gold the sentiment Just a Note which is from the Soft Sayings card kit stamp set. I die cut that with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I also cut a Gold Foil Banner and then glued those together. I layered on a piece of Fresh Fig card stock and added some Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon. And a Gold Faceted Gem to the center of the medallion. It was all put on a Thick Whisper White card stock base.
I hope everyone likes my card – I made 26 for the swap – that was a lot of sponging!
