5/16 Shoebox Swaps from Our May Stamping to Share Demo Meeting - Part Two

 

This is part two of our Stamping to Share Shoebox Swap that we had in May. Dorene Bye, inspired by an online tutorial, taught us how to make these beautiful flowers. You can make them with or without stamping. For the flower on the left, stamp a flower in black five times. Dorene used a flower from Secret Garden. Punch it out with the Blossom Punch. It will not "fit" the flower, but that doesn't matter. Roll all the petals towards the center with a skewer. Fold the petals upward, glue together and shape. The flower on the right was not stamped, just five punch outs, rolled, folded, glued and shaped. How lovely!


Mary Kiley's card layered up some punches and heart die to make this beautiful wedding card. The butterfly punch outs made with Papillon Potpourri and the Bitty Butterfly Punch are not wasted as they are used to decorate the inside of the card as you can see below. The sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases.


The sentiment on the inside of the card is from our Occasions Alphabet set.


Cindy Standal had us put together this lovely card with the vintage dress that used one of our Tea Lace Doilies. I love all the small details from the pearls to the flower to the embossing.


Dawn Michels made up a wedding card for us to make. She had enough rings left over from her daughter's wedding that we were all able to use two of them on our cards. Lot's of fun and bling and yet oh so elegant!


Cindy LeMire taught us how to make a spinning card with her shoebox swap. The piggy from Button Buddies whirls from one side of the card to the other thanks to pennies and dimensionals. The sentiment was made with one of our photopolymer stamp sets called Designer Type. The clear set makes it easy to put your letters into the word bubble.


Barb Manship's card was a window card that she precut for us with a combination of label and window framelits.The flowers from Secret Garden were also cut with the coordinating framelit set and colored and glittered up to make a very showy card. We customized our greeting by selecting our choice from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share. Tomorrow I will share what I made for the Shoebox Swap.
