October 2013 Demo Swaps - Part Two
Part Two of our Stamping to Share Demo Meeting Swaps with a Christmas Theme. Many thanks to my AWESOME downline - Always Sharing. Always Caring.
This beautiful easel card featuring Lovely as a Tree was created by Marlys Guertin. I think she made a great choice in background paper as it coordinates so well with the embossed image. That paper is from our Winter Frost Paper Stack. There is a glimmer brad to hold the easel in place and the sentiment on the inside of her card is from the stamp set called Wishing You.
Cindy Standal created this lovely in my place! I was so busy prepping for Fall Flair and then off to a weekend in Rochester that I didn't have time to make my own swap cards! I wasn't sure what I was going to do and then Cindy volunteered to make one for me. Bless her heart! Thank you, Cindy!! She used the Festive Flurry stamp set and the coordinating framelits to make this cheerful wreath. I love the red and pink together and the paper piercing is a lovely touch.
Mary Bellis created this gorgeous out of the box cut poinsettia card using the stamp set called Joyful Christmas. I kept telling myself that I didn't "need" that stamp set. And then THIS card comes along! Guess what . . . I got the stamp set! lol! All it takes is that one perfect sample and I'm hooked!
Viv Barriga made a cupcake topper with her ExpressionsThinlits for her swap and what a great idea!! I happened to have a cute little cupcake photo holder that Judy Hamen gifted to me a couple of years ago and it seemed the perfect way to display Viv's swap.
Of course . . . you wanted to see an up close version, too! She added a sweet star . . . and as you probably noticed, the paper is our new Silver Foil introduced in the Holiday Mini.
Need a great candy bar wrap for the Holidays? Debby Filiowich to the rescue!! Santa's List and Tags 4 You come to bat in this delightful 3D. I can't believe that I still have the candy bar . . . but now that the picture has been taken, all bets are off as to how long it will last! The striped paper is from the Season of Style Paper Stack so you will be able to wrap a bunch of bars and have them all look the same.
Dorene Bye created a BEAUTIFUL Poinsettia gift tag with Joyful Christmas. And then she even added a tag to the tag! The Holly Jolly tag is from Tags 4 You. Love that new Label Bracket Punch. The center of the flower is accented with basic rhinestones that have been tinted with a Sharpie Marker. Love that little trick for adding color to the rhinestones as well as the pearls.
And finally, our last card in the swap lineup for October is from Laura Erickson who used the stamp set Mosaic Madness to create some darling Christmas ornaments. I love the embossed snowflakes in the background and the Season of Style Washi Tape is a great anchor for adding color and style to this card.
