Swap Cards

I wanted to post a few more of the wonderful swap cards I got at the Stampin' Up retreat I went to last month. I love these swaps, you get so many great ideas!

Melany Watson always makes wonderful cards, this one features the new embossing folder that is available with the Summer Mini Catalog. I just love the dimention the embossing adds to projects. This one is called Square Lattice and has a great woven texture. Don't you love it? Mine will be here next week so you will be seeing it in a lot of my projects soon! this card also includes the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch as well as the Boho Flowers punch and a new stamp set called Bouquet Bunch. I love that little bucket!

Next is a simple but very pretty card that uses the wonderful Cottage Wall DSP as a base. Those tone on tone green swirls are a great design. This card was made by Pamela Kroeger and includes the Whimiscal Words sentiment set 2 punches; the Scallop Square punch and the Eyelet Border punch. Pamela finished her card off with the beautiful Whisper White Organza ribbon.

The third card also uses an embossing floder. Marsha HOsner made this card with the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions folder. She
dotted the flowers with the white Signo Pen and stamped the fun, fancy "F" from the Vintage
Vogue with Silver Encore ink. The flowers are punched from Cottage Wall DSP and chunky glitter added to the center for more sparkle.

The Summer Mini catalog is filled with wonderful new stamp sets and other products. I just ordered 3 packages of them so if you haven't gotten one yet, let me know and I'll get yours to you. You don't want to miss out on it!

I have a scrapbook class this morning. I wish you were here, it's going to be fun!
