Our Creative Crafters' Stamping to Share Demo Meetings are just full of fun and inspiration. For our July Meeting, we decided to have a Shoebox Swap. We had a lot of participants so I've divided this post into three parts. I know that many of you appreciate that I share these cards with you and I am so grateful that you do. THANK YOU!!
Cindy LeMire used the new Comfort Cafe paper which is full of gorgeous fall colors. (Honestly, I didn't care what the paper looked like . . . I was so sold on the name! lol!) The stamp set she used is called Layered Labels and it has a coordinating Framelit Set called Apothecary Accents. If you look closely, you can also see that she used an Adorning Accents Folder, too.
Barb Manship, one of our newest demonstrators to join our group, used a combination of sponges and fingers to color this embossed card. Everyone got a slightly different look and it was fun to see all the variations. She used the Flower Garden Embossing Folder and an Apothecary Accents framelit. The Baker's Twine, originally white, was also sponged with ink to coordinate with the card.
Mary Bellis used the new stamp set called Serene Silhouettes to create this beauty . . . and again the paper is from the Comfort Cafe pack.The awesome sentiment which coordinates so well with the images is actually from the new stamp set called Trust God. After making this card . . . I have both of these sets on my wish list!!
Monika Palider used the new stamp set called Take Care on this card. The blue bird is from the new set called Cottage Window. I love the different ways you can use our stamp sets together! Monika used three different embossing folders on this card: Stripes, Square Lattice and Designer Frames.
Cindy Standal, casing Mary Brown, made this gorgeous card with the new stamp set called Blooming with Kindness. I just LOVE the fonts SU used on the sentiments in this set . . . and there are five different sentiments to choose from in that set!
Debby Filiowich, who mentioned she cased this card from our Demo Only website called Stampin' Connection, had this cutie for her shoebox swap. She used two new stamp sets . . . Make a Cake that coordinates with the Patio Party Designer Series Paper and the Itty Bitty Banners set. She also has an embossed panel using using the Adorning Accents folder that adds a little extra pizzazz to this card.
Cathy Hobbs created this card for our swap and I love how she used strips of bright color accent the otherwise muted tones of this card. She used the new stamp set called Blooming with Kindness. There's a labels framelit die that fits that flower perfectly and the Crumb Cake panel is embossed with the Square Lattice folder.
Gayle Monson, one of our guests at our meeting, designed a really fun and bright card that used our sheer ribbon from Sale-a-bration. You can see how it is wrapped around the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle to make a very cute flower. The designer series paper is from the Summer Smooches pack. The dotted paper is from the In Color Patterns for 2011-2013. The sentiment from Loving Thoughts and is stamped and layered onto die cuts made with the Labels Framelits.
Rachel Puelen's card used the new stamp set called The Great Outdoors for the tent and the trees are stamped with the tried and true set called Lovely as a Tree. We used glossy paper, masked the moon and sponged our sky and grass in before stamping the trees. The tent was stamped on a separate piece of paper and cut out and adhered with dimensionals. The sentiment came from Loving Thoughts.
Stay tuned for Part Two tomorrow!
