OnStage Atlanta SWAP Cards!

Crafters -

I am safe and sound (and warm and dry!) here in Atlanta, ready for OnStage tomorrow.

BUT today, I am able to attend a stamping day with other demonstrators at a private event.

AND - there is a SWAP!

Want to see what I made? When doing 60 swaps (needed 51 for the organized swap and I wanted a few extras), you ALWAYS want to do ASSEMBLY LINE!

Remember - SPA - Stamp - Punch - Assemble! This is not mine. I heard it from Shellie Gardner at a Convention YEARS ago!

First, STAMP - stamping is ALWAYS first step when actually making the card.
And my new Stamparatus makes it SO much easier!

Second, PUNCH - nowadays, punching means everything in between the actual stamping and the assembly. So punching, diecutting, ribbons, embellishments, all of those.
I so miss our stapler.
This little mini stapler and mini staples just aren't as crafting friendly.
I knotted 60 of those Crushed Curry Chevron ribbons!
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the hearts
and Silver Mini Sequins too!

And finally, ASSEMBLE - the assembly is always the last step. I did my coloring using my Aqua Painters before I assembled on the card. AND I let them dry overnight too. Colors used are Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry (my favorite - NOT!), Night of Navy, and Elegant Eggplant. While not actually ROYGBIV (Red-Orange-Yellow-Green-Blue-Indigo-Violet), it's close, right?  :)
The final project!

Hope the crafters enjoy this swap card today. I'll be showing this card, and maybe a few others on my weekly Facebook Live on Sunday, April 8th at 7pm. Hope you can tune in!
