I received these lovely swaps a few weeks ago from a talented group of stampers I swap ideas with and thought I’d share a few…
This one is made using the Stampin’ Up level 1 hostess set, God’s Beauty. Denice used Pale Plum as the card base, then added a layer of Perfect Plum card stock. She Sizzix’d up the card with Frame Oval Scallop and our exclusive Little Leaves sizzlit. So pretty!
Rhea always does such elegant cards. The main card is Kraft (which I need to use more of – love it) Basic Black card stock on top, a little bit of white punched with our new Eyelet Border punch. Urban Oasis DSP on the bottom stamped in Kiwi with the Fifth Ave Floral set. The Kraft Taffeta ribbon ties it all together!
It’s hard to see here, but the main card is Vanilla and then layered with a Sahara Sand embossed card stock layer. Then the eyelet border punched in Chocolate Chip, a strip of Olive Patterns DSP. The stamp set is Thoughts and Prayers, set of 8 on page 58 of the big catalog. It is the perfect set for sympathy and get well sentiments.
Mary stamped the flower on shimmer white card stock. The flower is from “Wonderful Watercolors” and I didn’t even know it was in the big catalog! She started with a Basic Black card, added a white layer, then another black layer card stock. The blue paper is lighter than it appears here and is from the Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP. I love how she tied 2 white organza ribbons around the card for an extra special touch!
