May Swaps & Inspiration Part 2

Continuing on from yesterday’s post, sharing some lovely cards I received!

More Tea for Two DSP (designer paper) from the Spring Catalog.  It won’t be available  after May 31 unless SU has some left and it goes on the Clearance rack.  This one is from Jan Cramer in NE and it’s simple but so pretty with a little bit of sponging around the edges of the Labels framelit.

Michelle Phillips stamped this card for our team meeting swaps here in Florida.  She used ‘This & That’ Epic Day designer paper layered on Pool party and Gumball Green card stocks.  Pretty!

Cathy Williams created this card using By The Tide stamp set, which made it into the new SU catty.  She added Crystal Effects over the fish to help it pop out a bit.

Another By The Tide stamp set idea:  Oh please tell me who did this one!  No name on the back and I’ve had it a while.  Love love the Parker’s Patterns paper with the lobster!

By the Tide again!  This one by Robin Merriman.  It looks like she inked a clear block with an aquapainter

and used it to stamp the watercolor paper.  I’m guessing but that’s what it looks like to me!

This one is easy to do and stops my customers in their tracks!  Everyone asks ‘how’d she do that?”  The flower is embossed with white embossing powder on a white card then she sponge rubbed either eggplant or wisteria ink over it.

More tomorrow!

Go stamp something,

    I made a card just like the By the Tide card posted above. It was one of my Leadership cards. Maybe I should start taping my business card to my samples. I just put them in the envelopes.

  3. Hi Jan! Is that one your exact card? I can post your name to it if it is
