Which card should I use as a swap?

I'm still busy getting ready for convention. I am SO EXCITED!!! But first, I need your opinion. This first card in Blush Blossom and Chocolate Chip is a card that we made at the last two workshops. I really like the softness of the colors, but it did require some extra sponging around the corners.

This card is one that I made for my MIL's birthday invitations. This blue is showing up much brighter than in real life, but I think you get the picture. Both are made with my new SU! texturz plate and my new stamp set Wedding Sweet. Isn't it gorgeous??? I had to order this set because I knew that it wouldn't be limited to just weddings.

Ok, here's your chance. I've put up a poll on the right so that you can help me decide which card a should make a ton of for swaps at convention. I'm having such a hard time deciding between the two. So please vote by 8/3 so that I don't have to choose myself. ;-)

Both card use the new Texturz Plate from Stampin' Up! The layered sentiment is the new Modern Label Punch and the Movers and Shapers XL Die Modern Label. Now isn't that Big Shot sweet?!

Thanks friends! And thanks again for stopping by the Stamping Station.

  1. Dear Julie, I occasionally landed on your blog and like what I see here. You do wonderful artwork! And so I will make a visit again on your place from time to time to see what's new.
    Love from Switzerland,

  2. Both are great cards, Julie! My eye is just drawn to the blue though, so that's the one I cast my vote for in your poll. If I saw them IRL I might vote the other way, cause I LOVE Blush Blossom. I'd have a very hard time deciding too. Maybe you could do half and half!!

    I'll email you about convention...

  3. Julie,
    These are gorgeous cards, simple and elegant!!!

  4. Both cards are amazing! While I LOVE blush and chocolate together and would have voted for that if you had simply asked which I like best, I voted for the blue BECAUSE, if it doesn't require extra sponging, it will be easier for you to make more for swapping! Either way, you can't go wrong!

  5. Another 'love 'em both' here, but I voted for the blue because it's quicker to put together. Terrific cards,

  6. Love them both! I would do a half and half and let the swapees (is that a word?) decide.

  8. Sorry I deleted my post but there was some embarassing typos that I could not live with. These are both stunning!! I love the blue one more than the apricot just because the details show up better especially the stamping but they are both so elegant and gorgeous!

  10. The blue! Definitely the blue! They're both beautiful, Jules!

  11. What a pretty design, the colors on both and how you did the sentiment!!! I can't choose because I love them both. I know...make half of one and half the other. I love a good compromise!!!

  12. I vote pink because we did it and I love it. Also because congrats is used more than your invited. but I guess you could change the words.
    I hope you had a good bday thanks for the nice voicemail. Its already been too long since we've seen eachother. Ben passed his final exam and we are having another girl, just fyi.

  13. oh purdy!!! I have to admit, I love Blush Blossom, one of my faves and I use it whenever I can. But blue is always a winner and always popular, so you should go with both!! (No help here, huh?? LOL!!)
