I thought I'd share some cards that I made recently, swapped recently, and recieved from friends recently!! ENJOY!! I'll try to keep this going!!
This is a card I made for a swap I am in with several friends of mine. I used the set, Soft Summer from the mini catalog and the happy birthday is from the Under $10 section (the one on special this month...if you spend $40 on mini catalog merchandise, you get one free!!)
The colors are chocolate chip, baja breeze, Old Olive and whisper with with Ruby red marker.
I stamped the flower and punched it out with the scallop square punch. I used some olive grosgrain ribbon and then did the diamonds on the background with the Big Shot Texture plates. Fun! :)
This beautiful card (If I may say so myself) was another one I made for that swap and uses the Ruffle Edge technique that I did for my SU presentation in Minneapolis. (See the tutorial I made on how to do this in yesterday's post).
The colors are Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, with StazOn Black ink and Versamark ink (for the background). I used aquapainters, the scallop edge border punch, paper crimper, word window and 1 3/4 Circle punches also.
Oh, and Soft Summer, too!
This card was made by my swapping buddy, Liz. She has an amazing talent to combine textures, elements, and colors in such an artistic way...it is amazing!
She used the set, Good Friend, the Walk in the Park Printed paper, Whisper White, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Basic Gray.
The ribbon is the Organza with Summer Sun Cordurory Buttons, and a Fire circle rhinestone brad.
This card was done by my upline, Tami, who we all do swapping with, too! Tami ROCKS!!
Speaking of textures...this card has it but the photo doesn't show it all...
The Colors are Whisper White, Kraft, Black and the Taste of Textiles paper (it is just before the printed paper section fo the catalog).
The stamps are Matchbox Messages (the one that coordinates with the Matchbox die in the mini catalog). The ribbon is the Whisper White Satin and the jumbo grommet was used, too! VERY Cool!
This pretty card was done by another swapping pal, Julie! (Can you tell we all just did a big swap together...) :)
She used the Oval All and Oval punch and I just love the colors...and more texture!!
The colors are Ridinghood Red, Basic Gray, Basic Black, with Bella Rosa printed paper, Vintage Brads, Basic Gray taffeta, Dress Up Ribbon Origonals, Wide Oval Punch, Scallop border punch, corner rounder punch, and Texture Plates for the Big Shot.
