Swaps and Kleenex Invasion

I’ve had a raging cold all week long, thanks in part to my wonderful husband who had a cold last week altho it wasn’t his intention to give it to me so I can’t be too mad. I have carried around a box of Kleenex under one arm from room to room for the last 3 days.  The highlight of my week was receiving my swaps back from my monthly swap group of talented stampers and I thought I’d share:


Stamped by Mary Hall.  I loved the colors – Black and Not Quite Navy, and the way she used the Top Note Sizzix Die and cut it in half.


This is stamped by Sharon Skelton.  The picture doesn’t favor it well, so sorry about that.  The card is Sage Shadow with Chocolate, image embossed in Silver.


Stamped by Sharon Burkert.  Love that Stampin’ Up large stitched chocolate ribbon!


Stamped by Rhea Hughes.  The colors are unique using Baha and Kraft cardstock.  And LOOK at the Kraft taffeta ribbon…I didn’t even realize we sold that!  Gotta get some…


Stamped by Mary Ammar.  Love seeing that bling paired up with our Filigree brads!


Stamped by Linda Picchioni.  Urban Garden Designer paper – Love it!


Stamped by Kimberly Allen.  Handsome Hunter, Riding Hood Red and gold shimmer cardstock that is embossed in gold – so elegant!


Stamped by Jan Cramer.  What a sweet, Tango’d Card!


Stamped by?? Ok girls – someone email me and tell me who did this one.  It is hard to photograph b/c it is a vellum card, embossed in Iridescent Ice – very pretty!


Stamped by Susan Gudmunson.  She gave us a little extra detail by snipping the taffeta ribbon to look like a scarf!


Stamped by Carol Gilmore.  She glittered over the whole ornament circle and tied it all up with that awesome, wide grosgrain!

I’ll continue with my Stampbuster video series in a few days when I’m not held hostage in the Nyquil, Dayquil, Nyquil cycle.

Stay healthy,
