cards, Catalogues, swaps


I mentioned in a previous post about our Team Shoebox Swap.  I thought I would share the other cards today with you.  It was just a small group this time so just a few cards.

Of course I changed them up a little from the original – because I could. 🙂

This one from Silvia is a card clip.  It is using the Parisian Beauty Bundle.  The Rococo Rose card was cut with the Stitched Rectangles Die and then the “script” stamp was stamped several times over it.  The Eiffel Tower was diecut from Gold Foil.  It’s hard to tell but there is some Wink of Stella over the Rococo Rose card and some clear heart embellishments.  The large noteclip had some Designer Series Paper wrapped around the clip.

This next one from Lynne was using the Painted Poppies bundle.  The Blackberry Bliss card was embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  I angled the embossed card and the piece of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper just to be different. The stamped poppy was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut with the die.  Using the Aquapainter spread over the ink a little to colour the poppy.

This next one from Vanessa is using the Honey Bee Bundle.  I am still not sure of this bundle but I liked making this card.  The one cool thing with this bundle is the bees in the Detailed Bee Dies cuts some of the bees in the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  So clever that Stampin’ Up! does this.

The honeycomb die was cut from the Bermuda Bay to use the small hexagons on the piece of Designer Series paper.  Also a fit with the dies!  I didn’t want to waste the honeycomb so I added that to my card.

The bees were coloured with the dauber and inkpads.  As the bees were embossed they resist the ink so you have coloured centres.  The large black bee at the top is stamped in black and diecut with the die.

I will post my card that I shared for the swap in another post coming up soon as I will give you some more details on it. Stay tuned for that.

TIP: Purchase any of these bundles.  They are approximately $75, add some card and ink to reach  your $90 so you can add one of the Sale-A-Bration choices.  Great with the Honey Bee Bundle as you could choose the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper.  Check them all out in store -> HERE.

Have a great day,
