5/8 Back from Disney and here's my Disney Swap!


We are back from the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Walt Disney World. What a wonderful time it was. I hope to share a few pictures with you in the days coming up. I'll start today by sharing the swap card I made for our Share Night. It seemed appropriate to make a "Mickey" card and this one was so easy that I made all 26 cards in less than an hour and a half! I used circle punches on the black card stock and then popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals over the red panel. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Curly Cute. The stars are made from the Big Shot Die called Stars #2 accented with a Basic Rhinestone.

The inside of the card features the punched out circles to make another Mickey accented with a slightly bigger star. The sentiment is from the hostess set called Happiest Birthday Wishes. This card will be on my May Card Buffet - I hope it's a hit! It's a great birthday card for kids of all ages who love Mickey. 

This is a picture of my family at the beach. One of the last pictures we took before heading home on Sunday. L to R: Kasey (15), Kari (16), Karel (18), Steve and Kay.

Stamping to Share Tip of the Day: One hot trend right now in the paper crafting world is to use punches on a panel of paper with the purpose of using the negative space as your main image such as I have done with this Mickey card. You can see a couple of examples of this technique by clicking HERE and HERE. Give it a try and open up a whole new way of looking at punches!
