Swapping Stampin' Up! Style

One of my favorite things to do at a Stampin' Up! event is swap cards.  Here are a few pictures of what it looks like.  Stampin' Up! demonstrators carry cards to exchange with other demonstrators and at places like convention, you'll see these swap-portunities show up everywhere.  I've swapped at the airport, on the plane, on the bus, and naturally at the Salt Lake Palace convention center.  You make many samples of the same card and then trade them.  It's a wonderful way to greet friends, meet new friends and have a wide variety of cards to share when you get back home.

I came home with many wonderful swaps.  Here is the first of many posts with some of my swap cards.  Debbie Adelt made this stunning card using the Wetlands stamp set.  She used watercolor paper and spritzed the paper to give it that watercolor look.  This was the swap that almost didn't happen.  Janet Holmes came up to be and asked if I had any swap cards left.  I answered yes and gave her one.  Off she went and brought back this card.  She had passed by the woman swapping this card and knew that I would love the card, so thank you Janet and Debbie!

Carolyn Rice made this punch art camera which can be a card or an embellishment.  She used the File Tab edgelit to make the top of the camera and circle punches for the lens.  Notice how she used the argyle embossing folder to add texture to the black?  The smallest ticket from the Ticket Duo punch is the button on the camera.  What a great imagination Carolyn has to design this swap card!

Leslie Mahon made this card with the fabulous background using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder and inks to show off the details.  The color coordination is gorgeous!

I'll continue to share my convention swaps and details when I have them in the upcoming days.  Starting with my Sunday 7/27/2014 post are more of the inspiring and creative ideas that I would like to share from #InspireCreateShare2014.
