This is the second installment of Swaps and Fun Stuff from last week's Stamping to Share Monthly Meeting. I think you will be impressed with the wide variety of cards that my down line came up with for the Anything Spring Swap. The super cute chick card above was created by Monika Palider . . . her first swap with us!! We loved the card, Monika, and hope you participate many more times in the future! She used Inspired by Nature, Teeny Tiny Wishes and variety of punches.
Kathy Trussell made a darling birdhouse to swap with us. It's a mystery to me how she got the perch on there, but each of us has a talent and sweet 3-D is right up Kathy's ally! The little bit of Baker's Twine, adds to it's authenticity and makes it easy to display. She used Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tag stamp sets.
Katherine Narog made a little goodie bag filled with chocolates wrapped with Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series paper. I love the way she tied two ribbons together to make a dual-colored double tie accent. She used Teeny Tiny Wishes and Loved Ones stamp sets.
Karen Larson created a very elegant graduation card! She used Framelit Label dies and the Perfect Pennant Die along with the Word Play stamp set to create this card.
Irene Boesen used Mixed Bunch with Best Friends Forever and Delightful Dozen stamp sets to create this beauty of a Mother's Day card. Love the Beautiful Wings butterfly accent.
Grace Balfanz was also drawn to Mixed Bunch to create her spring card. She made the butterfly with the same punch . . . just cut away two of the petals! Love that idea!! The Designer Series Paper is from the paper pack called Twitterpated from our Occasions Mini.
Mary Bellis shared this graduation card with us. I love that the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Butterflys can be made in the school colors!!
Laura made this classy card to share in our Anything Spring Swap. She used some pretty paper from Berry Blossoms DSP and punched it into flower shapes with the Blossom punch.
This flower pick with a candy center was not part of our swap, but we all got one to celebrate Cindy's promotion to Supervisor! Cindy and her brand new down line Cathy made up a bunch to share!!
Here's a picture of Cathy Hobbs, one of our newest Stamping to Share team members along with her recruiter Cindy Standal . . . and their delightful flower surprise share!
This beautiful vellum flower was created by Mary Dagostino. I issued a challenge at my last product training session to create something with our card stock vellum and Mary brought her creation to the meeting so she could share with us how she did it. Isn't it beautiful??
Mary made the flower accent by brayering Melon Mambo onto both sides of a piece of card stock vellum. After it was dry, she punched several Fancy Flower shapes from it, and layered them together to make the flower. LOVE IT and I love that you shared!! Thanks, Mary!
And finally, a farewell picture! This is a picture of Mary Kiley, Grace Balfanz and myself. Mary recruited Grace during the Big Shot promotion last November and Grace has been a vibrant part of our Stamping to Share meetings each month ever since. And, this was her last meeting with us!! She is moving to North Dakota in May and we will miss her so much. But, she will still participate in our swaps and our Stamping to Share Yahoo Group will make it seem like she's only a quick click away!
Technology is a wonderful thing!
I'll have part three of our demo meeting swap and share next week. Thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!
