Stampin' Stars Training day

Hiya, hope you've had a good weekend!
I had a fab day on Saturday with lots of lovely Stampin' Up! friends,
full of laughter, inspiration, tips, crafting and cake!

We each make 'swaps' which are little pieces of work,
to share ideas and products we may not have ourselves.
It's often the most treasured part of the day!

I came home with a lovely box full of goodies that I will share in due course.
Here's my 'swap',
a gift tag using the 'emerging colours' technique.

I stamped the oval zigzag design in daffodil delight, then the words in versamark, and clear embossed,
using Oh Hello stamp set.
I then stamped the leaves and flowers from Summer Silhouettes,
then stamped over them in versamark and clear embossing powder again.
The final stage was to sponge all over with tempting turquoise ink,
then buffing to reveal the underlying colours.
A few pearls and ribbbon add the finishing touch.

I hope you have a good week, full of craftiness!
