I Love Swaps!!


I have a group of friends I swap cards with every now and then.  We all make a bunch of the same card, and then swap with each other.  It’s fun – and gives us great ideas and samples using sets we might not have.  Here’s the one I just swapped.  It’s a little different than my swap; I kept changing it and forgot to save one of the final cards.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll show you the swaps from my friends.

Stamp set:  Creative Elements; Ink:  Soft Suede, Blushing Bride classic; Paper:  Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Beau Château designer series paper; Other:  Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2-way glue pen, modern label punch, scallop oval punch, lace ribbon border punch, basic pearls, stampin’ dimensionals, smooch paint (top coat), sponge, Tombow multi adhesive

This is a pretty straightforward card.  I stamped the flowers several times in Soft Suede on Blushing Bride card stock and cut them out and layered them.  The butterfly was created using the “Rock & Roll” technique.  You ink the stamp with a lighter color (Blushing Bride), then ink just the edges in a darker color (Soft Suede).  And I really, really like these colors together.

It’s very glittery!  Wait until you see the Dazzling Details in the Holiday Mini Catalog!  You’re going to love it.  It gives a great glittery look, but it stays put.  No stray flakes to give you away as a glitter addict.

Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by.
