Direct from Japan!!

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   As I've mentioned once or twice (or a dozen times), I love to swap at Stampin' Up events because I get great ideas for cards and I get to meet so many wonderful stamping friends! I'm always happy to meet people from across the U.S. and Canada, but when Stampin' Up hosts a special event like its 30th anniversary party, stampers come from all over the world. I was able to meet two sweet and talented stampers from Japan when I attended the 30th anniversary celebration--and I got swap cards from them!!

Today's card was from the black and white plus one color swap and it was made by Masako Chisaka from Tokyo, Japan. Isn't it gorgeous?!

Masako used products from the Graceful Glass Suite on pages 164 and 165 of the annual catalog. She stamped a sentiment from the "Painted Glass" stamp set in Versamark Ink on a 1-1/4" by 2-5/8" Powder Pink Card Stock label. She sprinkled on some Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and set it with the Heat Gun. 

Next, she embossed a 2-1/2" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock panel with the Tufted Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 4" by 5-1/4" Basic Black Card Stock mat. She cut elements from the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies from Basic Black and Whisper White Card Stock and adhered them to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. She used the Sprig Punch to make someBasic Black Card Stock sprigs and adhered them to the card.

Masako then wrapped a length of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon around the card and added a length of Black 1/8" Cord. She tied a pretty Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon bow. Then she adhered everything to a Whisper White Card Stock card base.

To finish the card, Masako stamped the butterfly from the "Painted Glass" stamp set in Versamark onto Basic Black Card Stock, sprinkled on some White Stampin' Emboss Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. She used one of the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies to cut out the butterfly. She adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a tiny black Faceted Dot. She also adhered the sentiment piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally she added some black sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. Gorgeous!!
