Stella Swap Card #1

Well, I meant to post more pics from CK, but I only got them to the Facebook page. Anyone who saw me at the expo had the distinct pleasure of watching me hack out a lung and growl at them in a raspy, eventually completely gone voice - just the impression you want to make, right?

At least I got my swap cards all stamped up while I was resting at the crop tables in the afternoon. Here's my favorite of the four - a bright, happy Stella Card!

How much do you love the Lagoon color? Paired with the Tulip and Sunset, it just makes my heart happy!

I did a lot of rolling on the stamping for this card - mostly Sunset rolled with Tulip, but sometimes a bit of Cocoa on the edges too. The Lagoon flowers in the circle centers are paper pieced to really POP.

The big flower I trimmed into individual petals and scored down the center of each petal to add dimension. Then I cut a second flower at 1 1/2" on my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, stamped with Lagoon ink, and trimmed/scored those petals too. It really gives the flower a lot of texture!

CK made me bring a stapler to all of my classes as part of the bring list...which I never used in actual class. But I did use it on my sentiment strip on this card!

I'm linking this card to the awesome Color Throwdown Challenge #183.
