It’s been awhile since I’ve shared swap cards I’ve received from the creative people in my Stampers With ART Community. And I feel bad because I got these swap cards two months ago! Ugh… I hope you get some inspiration from these fabulous cards. The cards feature products from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and/or 2018 Holiday Catalog. And the themes were Sympathy, Masculine or Teen Birthday. The talented demonstrators that made each card are watermarked into each photo.
Products: I can’t possibly list them all for each of these cards, but…see below for a list of main products used in these cards linked to where you can find them in my online store.
These first four cards are Sympathy themed. I love Diana Barber’s use of Wink of Stella AND her masking technique to get the tan oval to “spotlight” the bird.
Our mom/daughter team, Nancy Forsberg and Kayla Cory from Stampingbae combined the Flourishing Phrases stamp set with the Share What You Love suite of products to get this beautiful unique folding card.
Bridge-fold cards are so impressive. Aren’t they? I love this swap card from Robin Walston. The grays with the white Springtime Impressions floral die-cut is so striking & elegant.
Pat Frank really blew us away with how she got this soft floral design on her card. First she embossed on Vellum Cardstock. Then she attached that vellum to the same size piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Adhesive Sheets. (The card base is Sahara Sand.)
The next 4 cards are Masculine themed. I love the Buffalo Check background image combined with the winter trees, the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and the soft blue and lavender hues added to the vellum. Verla Carpenter’s cards always have such fantastic details!
Have you ever stamped ONTO your embossing folders first before embossing your cardstock? That is exactly what Cheryl Lee did with her Nature Sings stamp images and the Woodland Embossing Folder. Such amazing results!
I can’t believe I own this Waterfront stamp set and STILL have not used it! There are so many beautiful cards I’ve seen made with it including Jenny Rehder’s shown here. And doesn’t it look great paired with the painted patterns from the Tranquil Treasures Designer Paper?
Ooo! Vicki Spicer used my favorite sheet from the Wood Textures Designer Paper Stack. What a perfect pairing with the Rooted in Nature tree image!
Broadway Bound is the perfect designer paper pack for teen birthdays. This next card by Lisa Nelson followed the Teen Birthday theme perfectly with the bold colors and the glitz of the Gold Foil Sheets and sequins.
I have a couple other cards to share that were given to me by stampers in my group. This first one Carol Lucas gave to me for my birthday this past August. It’s an amazing fun fold that incorporates lots of products in the Share What You Love suite. She CASEd this card from Linda Bauwin’s original.
And this card was designed by our talented Nora Marin. She sponged the ink onto Whisper White Cardstock to get the ombré effect. THEN she embossed it. So stunning!
I hope you enjoyed what I shared!
