Just popping onto share the swap card I made for last weeks Julies Jems’ quarterly training. As always I had a great & inspiring day crafting, catching up with friends / fellow team members and learnt & shared lots of new things too….. I can highly recommend these sessions! We were challenged to make our swap samples with the theme of Males….. I came to realise I must be quite strange though…. as I actually enjoy doing cards for Males… I seemed to be almost alone in that area! But although this theme moved many out of their comfort zone….. I came away with 30 fantastic samples with the Male in mind! Thank you ladies….. such talent!
I was inspired by this card by Debby Hughes… I saw this ages ago but it never left my head.. so it had to be!
For my actual swap on the day… the bow tie colour just had to be Soft Sky… a new colour coming to us from 1st July with the launch of the new 2013-14 catalogue in Europe. More on that another day!!! Soft Sky has been around the SU world before… but not in Europe… so this was a chance to use a “naughty pad” I had in my stash and so allow all of my fellow team demos a sneak peek of a new colour….. Needless to say you will probably see a lot of this colour from me after 1st July …. LOVE it!!
A really simple … but I think very effective card for males….. and for all occasions….. There should be a wedding ( morning suit) version pictured too using Basic Grey…but an open ink pad landed on it before I could take a picture…. so I will try to remake and share another day…..
Not sure if the details will show… but both shirt sides are scored 3 times on the Simply Scored Board.
The gemstones have been coloured black with a permanent marker ( aka Sharpie in my world!!)
And here are all 30 … ready to party!!! Or should I say…swap!
