Swaps to Share #1

I recently attended the Quarterly get-together of the NC Demo group.  We always have so much fun! I missed attending the event with my sister, Marianne, but had another good friend along, Debbie.  It's so fun stamping with a room full of friends who all love stamping just like I do.  It is always good to get together with old friends and make new ones.  This time the hostesses made the Quarterly "old school."  We had assigned seat so we could make new friends; re-visited some projects that I haven't done in years; had snacks that we used to eat as kids - Double Bubble, Mary Janes, chocolate candies, etc.  I thought I'd share some of the swaps I received.  These swaps are based on a sketch that we were given to follow.  It's interesting how different they all are.

My swap was this one.  I embossed the daisy (Daisy Delight) with white embossing powder on the turquoise strip and stamped the daisy in turquoise ink on the white panel.  The circle with HUGS is a new framelit and it and the ribbon are Berry Burst (a new in color.)

This card is by Debra Byrd.  She used the Eastern Medallion dies and a new hostess set, Tranquil Tulips.

There was no name on this card so I can't give credit.  She used the new Daisy Delight set along with the gorgeous Delightful Daisy DSP.  (You know, I have this paper but can't bring myself to cut into it!)

Again, no name.  She used Touches of Texture stamp set and Falling in Love DSP (which is retiring.)  It is a gorgeous card!

This card was made by my sister, Marianne.  She used Colorful Seasons stamp set and the new Color Theory DSP pack.  I love this stamp set!!!

Touches of Texture for Fall

We are getting some much needed rain here today.  I love to hear the rain coming down on the roof at night.  I'm headed to a luncheon and tour of Daveste Winery so I do hope the rain lets up by lunch time!  Plus, Sonny plans on playing golf today with a friend.  He tells me thought that it never rains on the golf course!  He may be right.  He had a tee time yesterday with another friend and his friend canceled.  Sonny went by himself and played - with no rain to stop him.  His buddy just missed out.

The limited time stamp, Thoughtful Branches Bundle, is still available while supplies last.  If you are interested in this bundle, check it out HERE.  Once the inventory is depleted, it will no longer be available.


Another attempt at a fall card was to use Touches of Texture.  This is a great stamp set for backgrounds, two step stamping, and flowers.  I stamped the flower in Early Espresso and then filled them in with Delightful Dijon, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze.  I stamped the "filler" part of the flower twice turning it just a bit each time.  It's hard to tell but I put Wink of Stella on the dragonfly and the center of the flowers.  Again another hidden element on this card is that I used the background stamp, Watercolor Wash in Crumb Cake on the background along with the splatter stamp from Touches of Texture (stamped in Cajun Craze.)  The Watercolor Wash is pretty subtle but just adds a little background color to the Vanilla card.
