Swap Cards - Part 1

Hi there My Stamping Friends,

Remember last month I mentioned that I was in a swap and that I would show you the cards I received? Well here are a few of them (not in any particular order since I admit that I haven't completely mastered how to post photos in a particular order on my blog). I'll post more tomorrow.

This All A Flutter butterfly card didn't have a label on the back so I don't know who made it. If it was yours feel free to let me know and I'll add your name here. I love this card and might have to case it and I'd like to give you credit when I do.
This Watercolor Trio card was made by Maria Ann Pane. I don't know if you can tell but there is glitter on the flower petals. And she used the Polka Dot Embossing Folder with her Big Shot. Just beautiful !

Nancy Amato made this one Watercolor Trio . I love how she dressed it up by using her Big Shot Texturz Plates. I think I might be a Big Shot Addict.

Jennifer Dimmer did an awesome job on this one. She used the new Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in her Big Shot and the First Day stamp set from our summer mini catalog. I love how she popped the book up for some more dimension.

This one is by Carol Slack and I don't know if you can tell but the butterflies and the center of the flowers have glitter. She also cut out the center flower and used dimensionals for added effect. Great job.

Lisa Chatterjee embossed the coconut from the Tropical Party stamp set, used the Island Oasis Designer Paper and colored the drink umbrella to match. I love this tropical look that we have going on here.

This creation is by Kathy Hamrick and she used the new July Fourth set. She embossed the 'fireworks' on glossy paper and used our Large Star Punch to pop up the stars on dimensionals.

Jennifer Snyder did a great job on this card. The Sweet Scoops set is so diverse and you can have any ice cream flavor you can imagine, without any of the calories. She used the gel pen to put a little accent on the ice cream swirls. She also used the Eyelet Border punch and the Heart to Heart punch but what I love (cause I'm a Big Shot Addict) is that she used the fantastic polka dot textures folder for the Big Shot. Love it, Love it, Love it!!

Stephanie Fitch did an amazing coloring job on this bicycle. I can tell she spent lots of time on it. I think the 1/2 inch striped grosgrain ribbon pulls the card together, but if you haven't guessed by now, probably my favorite part is that she used the Big Shot Texturz Plates.

Finally, I have a masculine card from April Prachniak. She did a great job adding some color to the motorcycle. I don't have this stamp but this might have sold me on it. Plus, she used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder in her Big Shot? Can't go wrong there!! Great job.

Hope you enjoyed the cards and ideas. I'll show you the rest in another post.
Have a great day!
