Swap Fun with the Team!

This past month, many of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration designers participated in an Occasions Catalog Card Swap. Instead of keeping all of these beautiful card samples to ourselves, we wanted to share them with you, too! Today's blog hop will spotlight a handful of Stampin' Up's Occasions Catalog products as each of us who participated chose a different stamp set to showcase.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog...and be sure to pin it, too! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 10 on the SSINK Occasions Catalog Blog Hop – Kathy P from Katrina P's Creative Corner. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. And, be sure to come visit us at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we 'inkspire' you 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year!

Hello and welcome. The stamp set I decided to use for the Swap is the Geometrical Stamp Set. I used a lot of the Kaleidoscope Suite items on this card so let me get right to the supply list. Geometrical Stamp Set, Triangle Punch which you can bundle together and save. Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing folder, Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper, Basic Black Card Stock and Jet Black Stazon, Basic Jewels, Strawberry Slush Ink, Crushed Curry Ink, Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon, Banner Framelits, Bermuda Bay Card Stock, Silver Card Stock and Strawberry Slush Card Stock. You might notice that the Silver Card Stock has a bit of shine removed. I did this by sanding it lightly with our Sanding Tool after I embossed it. I love how it aged it just a bit.
I hope you enjoyed my card and will take a moment to visit the other ladies. Their cards are great and I loved getting them all. I hope we make this a regular event. Have a great weekend. We are expecting a snow storm this weekend and I am not looking forward to it.

Cute! I loved the arrow embossed background. Great idea to distress it by sanding.
