Winter Swaps to Share…

Here are a few of the BEAUTIFUL swaps I received recently!

This card changes my mind about Soft Suede!  Most of the time, it’s not my favorite color.  THIS card, with the shimmer gold card stock, almost makes me say the L word.  Inside the champagne glass is a little bit of  (yep, you guessed) Champagne Mist shimmer paint!

Brocade Blue wonderland!  LOVE the embossed white card stock at the bottom and the largest white layer is glittered with dazzling diamonds!

I wish I was a better photographer so you could see the designs on the paper flower!  She used the Bride Specialty card stock and added some Sahara Sand card stock in to cut the flowers on the Big Shot.   See the jumbo snowflake cut behind the flower?  Genius.

This was my upline, Mari Fredericks, Christmas card to Matt and I.   She sprayed shimmer mist on it and I think she bleached the stars on the front.  She used Bordering Blue and Night of Navy card stocks.   Next is the card open:

She cleverly used a big scallop circle cut in half for the popped up main image.   I had this card on display at a workshop today and everyone who saw it loved it and had to take a pic of it!

I really like the traditional colors Susan used on this card!  Garden Green, Real Red, Chocolate Chip  and Vanilla papers all tied up with gold cord.

Bermuda Bay and Sahara Sand are a perfect team for this little gift purse!  It looks like Kimberly could have stamped the flowers in white Craft ink but it is actually designer paper,

Look at the detail she used to hold it closed!  Just a little bit of elastic gold cord over a Build A Brad.

this is the inside – a little envelope folded and glued inside for gift cards or whatever niceness you want to stuff in there!

Soft Suede sitting on the Christmas Cocoa designer paper from the Holiday Mini catalog is so pretty! Again, with my less than average photo taking abilities, it is hard to see that Denice also versamarked the entire white snowflake band and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for an extra wow touch!
