For those of you that don't know..... we Stampin' Up! demonstrators love to swap our ideas and use every "getting together opportunity" to make lots of cards etc and swap with each other...... As the SU! motto goes it really is all about "create, inspire, share" - so we do!!!
The Box in a Bag is a tutorial by Diana Gibbs on the SplitCoastStampers web site ( Link here SCS Box in A Bag) - though I have altered the dimensions to suit the size of my cards.
And now for more pictures of the cards and the people I have to thank for such beautiful swap cards.....
This card is inspired by one made by Margaret Rose (aka ayorkshirestamper) a whole year ago when last year's Mini Catalogue came out. It has sat splendidly on my display board ever since!!! - earning the well deserved oohs and aahs all year!!
The second card also uses the So Many Thanks stamp ( also available as an individual stamp) and 3 small pearls.... what would I do without the multi size SU! packs of pearls.....
This card was inspired by a Convention swap from Rebecca Chivers ( aka craftybecs ) - again it just had to be made after 5 months of oohs and aahs.....
And the third card. This also uses the Thank You Kindly stamp set - which is a gorgeous set of 4 Thank You greetings.
Thanks go to Cate ( aka blueangelcrafts - whose actual swap card is linked here) for her swap card last November.
And last but not least..... the fourth card again uses a sentiment from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. I have also used the new Textured Impressions Square Lattice embossing folder which magically turns any paper or card into a faux fabric effect. Stunning!! And very tactile. Bet my ladies want to texturise everything in site next week!!!
Thanks go to Anthea Goodman ( aka stampin-divas ) for her swap card last November..
