Here is a card I made for the SU! Portland regional training. I made a total of 50 swaps. I was told that is a good number. I made four different cards. Two cards I've already shown, so I'll show the other new one later.
I got the Oh, So Lovely hostess stamp set two weeks ago, which I used on this card. I like the set a lot. I stamped the poppy stamp and colored it in with the aqua painter. I then stamped the poppy stamp again on the top of the sticky end of a post it note and cut it out. I then stuck the cut out mask down and then stamped the background. It worked great! I reused the mask over and over again (for the 15 cards I made). I also used the Stamp-a-ma-jig (p 184 in the SU! catalog) with the Journey stamp. I just got the Stamp-a-ma-jig recently and I love it. I have been wanting it for awhile, but have always gotten other items. I am so glad I got it.
