9/28/13 Favorite Cards from Founder's Circle Part Two

 
This is part two of my favorite Swap Cards from Founder's Circle. The first set, that I shared a couple of days ago, were my favorite Christmas cards. This next set of five cards are my favorite non-Christmas cards. Our theme this year was Anything Goes so we had a wonderful variety of swap cards.
 

When I got this card from Lyssa Zwolanek, I immediately wondered about this stamp set. I couldn't recall it being in the book, because if I had seen it, I'm pretty sure I would have gotten it! After a little research, I did find it. The stamp set is called Spread the Joy and it is an online only stamp set designed by one of Stampin' Up's employees for a company-wide contest. I think it is just sweet! I have a link for the stamp set a little further down in this post.


This next card just, by Jackie Ross, has so much cute factor going for it!! Plus, look at the masking that was done in stamping the main image! Yikes!! Then, to do all that coloring . . . whew! Probably not a card I would make in multiples, but I'd definitely make one or two. I'm feeling like I really should get this stamp set, Giggle Greetings, as it really is good for a giggle!


Then, just "flip the card open" and it reads . . . You did it! Now go chase your dreams . . . or your tail or whatever . . . . I also love all the grunge stamping. I love Gorgeous Grunge and here it is also paired with Off the Grid.


This card, by Cindy Baughman, was created to look like an old 45. She created her own stamp from the personalized stamp page section of our catalog and used that for the record label. I LOVE the chevron bag as the album cover. How awesomely clever is that??


This is the front of the card. It's shiny because it have a window sheet layer over the basic black cardstock! Again . . . very clever!


And when you open it up, you see the "fabulous" stamp from the set called Million & One.


This card also uses the Million & One stamp set . . . GREAT use of the Chevron punch! Love the colors and love the grunge stamping. I just can't imagine how LeeAnn Greff managed to punch and glue down that many chevrons . . . we made 120 swap cards! yowie!


And finally, my final pick in my favorite five . . . a tag created by Lynsay Mahon from an image in the online only stamp set called Spread the Joy. I just LOVE this! It's so pretty and whimsical with a bit of vintage. I'm crazy about the way the tag is torn to let a bit of our stretch trim peek through. What an awesome tag. If you are interested in seeing the entire set of images in this stamp set available online only just click on Spread the Joy.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share! Now, I'm off to cut paper for our Stamping to Share Fall Flair. I can't believe it is coming up in only a week!! I've got a lot of paper to cut!!

Thanks, Bee . . .
It's actually a personalized stamp from SU. You pick the letter and then customize the phrase. You can find the info on page 135 of the 2013-14 Annual Catalog.
