Super Sample Sunday

Today I'll finish showing you the samples I made at the shoebox swap last Monday night. These are all really awesome cards, but sometimes I kind of screw something up, and end up changing the card a little when I get if you see a card you designed and it's different, that's why!

[Remember: you can click on any picture to see it full screen, and you can middle click to see it full screen in a new tab.]

(The card above is a monochromatic Rich Razzleberry card, made with the Level 3 Hostess Set called Kind & Caring Thoughts. The large beads from the Silver Bead Duo are used as accents on the foliage. A Blender Pen was used over the words in the greeting to soften them up and make them look sort of shadowy.)

(The card above was made with the Bella Toile background stamp, and a saying from the Kind & Caring Hostess Set. Soft Suede card stock and ribbon ground the Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry. The Oval Scallop Punch tag is finished with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.)

(The card above was made using the Medallion background stamp, a frame from the Gallery stamp set, and a Level 1 Hostess Set called Holiday Best. The Finial Press Embossing Folder adds depth to the horizontal strip across the card, as well as serving as a punched embellishment at the top left to retain balance with the slightly off-center focal image.)

(The 4"x4" flower card above was made with the Fresh-Cut Notes, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, a small stamp from the Circle Circus stamp set, a saying from the Level 3 Hostess Set called The More The Merrier, and three punches--the Five Petal Punch, the Boho Blossoms Punch, and the Scallop Edge Punch. The 3"x3" card was made using the Autumn Days stamp set, and features bleach stamping with the foliage sprig image. The word 'dream' is from the phrase "it's good to dream" from the Razzle Dazzle stamp set--the rest of the phrase was simply omitted.)

(I love Halloween, so the card above was my second favorite of all the cards, made with the From the Crypt and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, the Finial Press Embossing Folder, Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper, and the Stampin' Up! Lattice Bigz Die.)

(The card above was probably everyone's overall favorite from the swap--it is so elegant and yet at the same time earthy. Supplies include the Everything Nice stamp set, Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds I Texturz Plate, and that nifty Jumbo White Grommet with the tiny knot of Kraft Tafetta Ribbon on it, which stands out from the Very Vanilla background of the card and reminds you of a ring.)

  1. Wonderful selection of cards and designs. You have a talented group of swappers. Love the monochromatic feel to so many of them. Isn't our new catalog awesome? I'm loving this one so much!
