Swaps & Inspiration February 2012

Hi All!

Someone asked me the other day if I kicked them off my blog feed since they hadn’t received a post in a while. I cringed when I realized it’s been a while since I posted! With Sale-A-Bration going on and lots of stamp-happenings, I’ve neglected to post some of the great swaps I’ve received in January and February.

Before I forget another thing – I have a stamping class this weekend in Orange City, FL (which is between Sanford and Debary area) with a few of demonstrators on my team, Iina and Toni. If you live near there and want to attend the class you can find details HERE.


On to get some inspiration going!

This is one of my favorites and was created by Debra Townsend in Sacramento. She always does beautiful work and I didn’t even like this stamp before I saw this card! The stamp is in the Occasions mini and called Packed for Baby. She used Pool Party as the main color.

Here is another swap by Deb Townsend using the new Simply Scrappin’ kit called Spring Fever and the new Doily Die. Love the pear pleated ribbon she used inside the doily circle.

Jeanne Harris created this beauty using Bordering on Romance (Occasions mini) and the new Edgelits. I can’t even imagine how long it took to line up the edgelits and the folders on each side! The center flower is Cracked Glass Technique and you can see it better here:

Several layers of clear embossing powder and then put it in the freezer for a few minutes. Bring it out and crack it up!

Lela M created this vintage-y card using Soft Suede, Attic Boutique DSP and So Saffron. The framelits and Apothecary Art are made to go together!


Jamie Adcock stamped this pretty Elementary Elegance SAB stamp set with Everyday Enchantment DSP.

Sweet Easter card by Lisa H. using Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral color combo

Tarri Trombley embossed the Tea Shoppe cup in white ink/powder and rested it on Baja Breeze card stock, Blushing Bride and Twitterpated paper.Love that lil’ button!

Emily Turner sponged some pool party and Daffodil on some Attic Boutique paper and it really is pretty! That was my least favorite flower in the Mixed Bunch stamp set and now it’s one of my favs.

going to stop here for today, run off to watch The Bachelor…I know, I know….but I hooked now and there’s no turning back.

p.s. Anybody from Winchester, VA? I’m heading there this coming week!
