SEE MY SWAPS FROM THE 2020 ANNUAL STAMPIN’ UP! CATALOGUE!

The last 2 posts I have shared swaps that I received from a Card Swap I joined in on with the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. If you missed them do pop back and see them in the last posts.

Today I thought I would share more details on the cards I created for the swaps.

This card was for the Round 1 Swap Group. I have used the set Comfort and Hope.

I picked the colours for this card from some of the Designer Series Paper from last year I think.  Now I can’t remember which pack.  The colours are Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.  I wouldn’t have thought to put these colours together.

The Stitched circle with the swirly circles needed something underneath and I didn’t have any Blackberry Bliss Ribbon so I diecut 2 little banners from the Tasteful Labels Dies set and added them underneath.  It just adds another element.

I love sending cards in the mail “Just Because” so I really like this Paper Hug sentiment.

My swap card for Round 2 Group  I used the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

The colours used were Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron. When I was assembling the card I thought it was missed something so I added a vellum scallop circle using the die in the Tasteful Labels Dies set. It helps “ground” the flower. I used one of the other dies in the set to diecut the white  card with the flower stamped on it.

The Mint Macaron card was embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I added a little Linen Thread bow to finish it off.

I love joining in swaps and seeing all the amazing creations that I receive. It’s great getting the new ideas.

Have a great week. I hope it’s a creative one for you.

2020 ANNUAL CATALOGUE SWAPS – ROUND 2!

Yesterday I shared some Card Swaps that I received recently.  That was Round 1 of the Swaps.  If you missed that be sure to head back a post.

Today is Round 2.  I think the Forever Fern Bundle was a popular choice for this round. Once again I am not mentioning individual names for each swap but Thank You to those who swapped with me.

Lots of flowery cards.  The card on the top left on the photos above is a Dutch Fold card which is cool.  The one below that is a shaker card with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. My swap for this round is the card on the bottom right in the photo just above with the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

I will share more details on my swaps in next post so be sure to stop by.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

PS  Don’t forget it’s Bonus Days time.  Every $90 you spend in July you receive a $9 voucher to redeem in August.  If you need help to place your order I am happy to help you.

2020 ANNUAL CATALOGUE SWAPS!

Recently I joined a Card Swap with some other Australian Demonstrators using products from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.  Card swaps are great as you get to see projects with other stamps you may not have or using colours or techniques that you don’t normally see.

I joined in 2 rounds in the swaps so I got LOTS of cards.  It meant I created 2 different cards for these but that’s OK. 🙂

I am going to share Round 1 cards today and Round 2 tomorrow.  I have included my card swap but I will share more detail of these in a later post.

I’m not posting individual names on these cards but for those who swapped with me – Thank You.

If you would like more information on any of the cards or would like a close-up photo of any please drop me a comment.

POWER OF HOPE SWAP CARD!

I can now share you my card I created for our recent Team Shoebox Swap.  I have shared the other cards recently.  This card was also the card I created for a group swap I was in.

I have used the Power of Hope stamp set and the 3D Stone Embossing Folder.

The black card was embossed with the embossing folder and you can’t tell in the photo but I swiped over the Versamark inkpad over the raised embossed parts on the card and it gave a little shine.

The Petal Pink card was stamped with the tree from the Power of Hope stamp set and the “Dots” were from the Beauty Abounds set.

The lady she was stamped in Memento and coloured with the Rich Razzleberry, Petal Pink and Black Stampin’ Blends.  The white card was cut with the largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The sentiment was a bit bare just in white so I also cut a small piece of Gold Foil both diecut with the small rectangle from Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I finished the card off with a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged ribbon.

Hope you like it.  I have made this card quite a few times now.

This Power of Hope set is available Free as a Bundle with the Embossing Folder for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD.  I hope you be sure to get your set before the end of March.  I think it’s a beautiful set and just a little different to others we have.

Have a great day,

Jenny

MORE TEAM SHOEBOX SWAPS CARDS!

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,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE SWAPS!

Christmas is fast approaching.  I have just time to show you these 2 cards I received for swaps recently.  These are using the Christmastime is Here suite. 

This first card was created by Peta one of my team members.  I received this as a swap for Onstage in early November but hadn’t shared it with you yet.  The copper makes it very classy.  She used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the card mats for the gorgeous array of flowers.

This next one is just a mini card.  It is about 7.5cm x 5cm (3″ x 2″) – roughly anyway.   The flowers are cut from the gorgeous Christmastime is Here specialty Designer Series Paper.  This one was a swap from my upline Vanessa. She added a little stamping too.

This Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available in my store -> HERE.  Just because Christmas is over don’t think you can’t use them.  They are beautiful, elegant products for a birthday or wedding.

If ordering online please use the Host Code: REKK2FW4

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time however you spend it.  I hope it is filled with love and special people around you.  For some I know Christmas can be a difficult time.  Know that you are loved and I pray that God’s grace and strength will fill you at this time.

Much love to you.

TEAM CHRISTMAS SWAPS!

It was the last team meeting for the year on Wednesday.  I wanted to share the swaps I received.  I have to say I didn’t get to make any swaps for this time but people were very generous in giving me one.

Firstly, this tag set is from Bonnie.  She made a cute little holder for the 6 tags.  There were lots of different stamp sets used to create these tags.

Christmas treats and a tag.  I liked the way Barbara made the tag using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  They are all lovely.  I am sorry I don’t have any directions for the little chocolate box.  The window is cut using the Stitched Rectangles  dies though.  It is really sweet.

Then an origami ornament from Vanessa.  I have seen these a few times recently.  I have wanted to make one but as yet haven’t had a chance.

You can see how to make them in this Youtube link -> HERE.

It might be too late for you with these for this Christmas but be sure to PIN them or save the ones you like ready for your creating next year.

Thanks for visiting me,

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

SAILING HOME MINI CARD!

Today I have a mini card for you using the Sailing Home bundle.  I received this one in a Team swap last month I think.  I am not sure who it was from sorry. 🙂

This is a mini Card measuring about 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″)

From what I can tell with this card the sky was sponged in the top part of the card using Pool Party ink. The water was created using the lines in the High Tide set.  It’s great when the stamp sets co-ordinate with each other. I think it was given a light wash with the Aquapainter to blend out the colours. The lighthouse was stamped separately and then diecut and coloured in small sections of it.

It’s a sweet card so Thank You to whoever made this card.

Come back tomorrow so you can see more cards using the Sailing Home stamps and the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing dies.

BIRD BALLAD MINI CARD AND ENVELOPE!

I received this mini card in our team swap last month using the gorgeous Free As A Bird stamp set and the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I shared my swap a few posts back using the Wildly Happy stamp set. Pop back a few posts if you missed it.

I think it was from Barbara.  It is gorgeous isn’t it.

Bird Ballad Mini Card

The birds were cut from the Designer Series Paper.  You know what I love too?  The envelope is stamped.  It’s nice to dress up the envelopes even for these mini cards.

The card is a small 7.5cm x 7.5cm or 3″x3″.

Just a quick one today but thanks for visiting me.  It means a lot.  I don’t really like talking to myself. 🙂

Have a great day,

Jenny
