February Demo Meeting Swaps Part One

Sue created a swing card with the Circle Framelit Thinlits Die. Making cards that move couldn't be easier with this die. Love it!! And, if this card doesn't throw a ray of sunshine on your day I don't know what will!! The little sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration set called Your're Lovely. The paper is from our Retro Fresh Pack in the Spring Mini.  (Circle Card Thinlits(133480) RetroFresh Designer Series Paper (132993))

Lee's card showcases a great technique that I haven't visited in a while. It's where you take punched out pieces and die cuts and adhere them to a paper panel before running them through the Big Shot Machine with an embossing folder. It perfectly presses them into the paper and makes it look like the punched out pieces are actually part of the paper! Sale-a-bration Rewards Items used on this card: Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, Decorative Dots embossing folder and the Petal Parade stamp set. (BittyButterfly Punch (129406))

Debby's card showcases the Starburst Technique. She used paper from the Fresh Prints Stack. Her flower is created with heart that were stamped with images from Summer Silhouettes. The Silver Glimmer paper really adds to the shine of this card. (Fresh PrintPaper Stack (132996) SilverGlimmer Paper (124005))

Dawn created a card that makes me want spring in the worst way!! (It's negative 13 as I type this!!) She used several Sale-a-bration products: Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, You're Lovely Stamp Set, and the Petal Parade Stamp Set. The colors are divine!

Mary created this great Thinking of You card by using the flowers from the set set called Blessed Easter and a sentiment from Sassy Salutations. The little bit of stretch trim ruffle in Baked Brown Sugar at the base of her flower image is such a sweet touch. She used the Decorative Dots Sale-a-bration folder as well. (BlessedEaster (133212) Sassy Salutations (WM 126705, CM126707))

Mary made this wonderful celebration card with the stamp set called Happy Congratulations. It's just a beautiful way to show off our latest In Colors. She used a new embossing folder called Scallops for the background piece. Her Sale-a-bration items were the Sweet Sorbet paper and the Decorative Dots embossing folder. (Happy Congratulations (Wood Mount 133044, ClearMount 33047ScallopsEmbossing Folder (132971))
