I returned home late on Sunday from the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip. A Mediterranean Cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines. We got on board in Barcelona with stops in Naples, Rome, Florence, Cannes, and Marseilles. What an experience!! My heart is over expanded with gratitude towards all the people in my life who helped make that trip possible. A HUGE thank you to my customers, downline, my stamping assistants and most especially to my husband, Steve, who makes my world go round. The picture above is of the two of us on an overlook above the city of Florence, Italy.
Today, I am going to share some downline swaps with you from recent Stamping to Share group meetings. WOW! Can it really be almost Father's Day? May kind of whizzed by and I am definitely a little bit behind. Even though you are seeing a few Mother's Day cards in this mix, know that they can easily be changed into the exactly right card for the occasion by switching out sentiments.
Dawn's card uses the stamp set called Crazy About You. She took her color inspiration from the floral paper that is part of the retiring paper pack called Birthday Bouquet. The soon to be retired Pool Party Glitter Ribbon also adds a fun touch to this card.
Mary's card is ever so sweet in that the Circle of Spring stamp set pairs up perfectly with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits, perfect for creating a pretty, spring-like card. Multiple sentiments in this set will fit into the center of that wreath making it so very versatile.
Julie's card explores the versatility of pairing up items that have already retired with items that are current. She used a print from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper that peeks out from behind some embossed pieces of Lost Lagoon. Oh how much we will miss that lovely In Color!
Linda's gate-fold card incorporates a hand crafted wreath created with the Petite Petals Punch. It's so easy to make, just punch out a circle and secure flower punch outs to the outer edges. You can accent the center with an embellished punch out or with a stamped sentiment.
Sharon used a sentiment from First Sight, a stamp set from our Occasions catalog that is being continued into our new catalog. She heat embossed a flower from a retired stamp set onto cardstock vellum and then colored the backside with markers. I love the ribbon treatment!
Julie's Corner Fold card uses the wonderful paper from the 6x6 paper pack called Going Places. She accented one corner with a bit of stapled ribbon. The sentiments are from a now retired Sale-a-bration set called Perfect Pairing.
Shelly's card is an awesome peek into the night sky! She used the stamp set that is about to retire from the Occasions Catalog called Going Global. I love the way she clustered the sentiments and used one of the sentiments over the top of the compass rose. She heat embossed the Big Dipper with white embossing powder before covering the panel with sponged on Night of Navy ink for an awesome looking night sky!
Tammy's card is a burst of color that radiates out from a cluster of bright balloons. She used the stamp set called Balloon Celebration and took a sentiment and die cut from the Rose Wonder Bundle. The background is embossed with the Confetti Embossing Folder.
And this was my contribution. It's a sympathy card that uses some retiring ribbon, two retiring punches and the retiring color Lost Lagoon . . . one of my all time favorite colors ever! You can see the products I used along with a video tutorial by clicking on I'm So Sorry Sympathy Card.

24/7 Shopping at my Stamping to Share Website
Who doesn't like to shop in their jammies? Did you know that every person who places an online order with me receives a hand stamped card in the mail? Unfortunately, if you select "no contact" when you are checking out, I won't be able to send a card because I won't have your address information! It's a good idea to avoid that box so that I can give you the best possible customer service! The current Hostess Code is 27BHXU34. Thanks!
