More Christmas Swaps!

Have you ever participated in a swap? It's like magic - you make a certain number of card fronts or full cards all in the same design. Put them in the mail, and then a couple of weeks later you receive the same number of cards that are all different! Some with stamp sets you don't have, some with techniques you've never tried, some with embellishments you didn't purchase - and when you see everything in real life it's all so beautiful! And inspirational! Next chance you have to participate in a swap, don't pass it up! :)

Today I have two cards made by Gayle Smith (www.rubberandink.blogspot.com). The Wondrous Wreath Stamp set is one of my favourites!




I really like the way Gayle used the Gold Velum DSP on this card.


The second designer today is Jessica Mink (www.jessicamink.stampinup.net). I don't have this Happy Winter single stamp, but now I want it after seeing Jessica's card in my hands.


And the Get Your Santa On stamp set is so cute, especially paired with the Nordic Noel DSP!


I'll be back with more swaps soon!

Happy Stamping

Sharing Some Swaps

Today I want to share with you some of the cards I received in a recent swap. It's great to get ideas from other stampers and these are lovely.

The first two are made by Debbie Sowards.

The one is simple and sweet using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set and Real Red.



I really like the colours Debbie has chosen for the Partridge and Pears card. And to be honest, until I received this card I had hardly noticed the stamp in the Holiday Catalogue. That's what seeing other stamper's ideas can do.

The colours are Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake cardstock. Gold Embossing coloured with Smokey Slate, Cherry Cobbler, and So Saffron.




Frances Hicks created the next two cards.

I wasn't drawn to this stamp set (The Newborn King) until I saw it embossed in gold. Now it seems entirely different... and I love it!

Frances also used Brushed Gold cardstock, and the blue is Island Indigo - stunning!


It seems everyone loves Cardinals. The cardinal in the Beauty of the Season stamp set is no exception.


Happy Stamping!

Project Peeks from Scrapbooking and Cards Today

I am very fortunate to be featured on the Scapbooking and Cards Today blog for the second time. I was so excited to create with the Holiday Home Stamp Set and the Homemade Holiday Framelits. (Bundle #137631  $39.75 in the new Holiday Catalogue)

This set has so many uses year round, and I'm hoping Stampin' Up! may bring out another stamp set that will work with this one - I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Here are a couple of the projects - you can see the rest on their blog.



Happy Stamping!
