Day 4 and 5 on the Noosa Australian Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip ...
Sponged Night Sky ...

My Incentive Trip swap using Eastern Influence ...

This is the card I came up with for the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip swap. Eastern Influence is fast becoming one of my favourite sets. It's very pretty and can be used with or without the other blossom branch. I really like the birds as well. I have also used the Friendly Words wheel and the 'friend' word from Basic Phrases as I wanted my card to have a friendship theme.

IT swap 

In this version I have stepped it up just a little by adding half pearls either side of the friends word, and adding some Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon.

IT swap step up 

Here's the recipe for the overall stepped up version:

  • Stampin' Up! Stamps: Eastern Influence. Basic Phrases and Friendly Words wheel.
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Bravo Burgundy
  • Other: Eyelet Border Punch, Crystal Effects, Pretty in Pink ribbon, Pretties Kit, Dimensionals, Jumbo Handle

This same design could be used for many different themed cards, so pull out the cardstock and the Stampin' Up! stamps and have a go! If you would like to buy any of the supplies I have featured in this card, or any other Stampin' Up! supplies, you can place an order just by phoning me on 03 97352946 or emailing me. Orders are delivered Australia wide from the Stampin' Up! warehouse.
