I wanted to share some of the wonderful ideas that came out of my team meeting last week. Below is a sketch I pinched from Julie Davison. Each member of the team produced a swap card based on this sketch.

The first Card is from Karen.


She has brought together elements from a number of different sets/suits.

Firstly, I was gobsmacked by how she had used the Pick A Punch to create the vertical strips, and added texture with the Woodlands Embossing Folder.

She has also used the Subtle Embossing Folder, for the Daffodil Delight panel, which combines so well with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.

The label is from the Painted labels Dies. The flowers are from the Basket of Blooms Stamp Set, the greeting is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and the stems were cut with the Banner Blooms Dies.

The card is finished off with a few rhinestones and mounted on a White card base, with White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and the flowers are white embossed on vellum. Hasn’t she done a great job, showing the amazing coordination of Stampin’ Up Products?


The next swap card was designed by Vicki. She chose a stunning colour combination derived from the beautiful retired Designer Series Paper; Blackberry Bliss and Petal pink.

I love how she has used the Petal Pink Striped Organdie Ribbon to represent the vertical elements.  The greeting is from the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set, which is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on a Petal Pink Circle. 

This simple but elegant card was finished off with a single pearl. Beautiful, Vicki.

That’s all I have time to share today but I’ll be back soon with more, including the fun fold.
