March 2017 Demo Meeting Swap Cards - Anything Spring!
Kim Lundstrom created this gorgeous card that features the paper piecing technique in a spectacular way! She cut out the image with several run throughs with the Big Shot Machine with each color that she was going to piece back into her image. The thinlits featured are the Timeless Tags on page 23 of the Occasions Catalog. The sentiment is from Avant Garden, a Sale-a-bration set available only through March 31, 2017.
Carmen Olsen's card shows off some spring things on the clothesline! She used the T-Shirt Builder Framelit Dies on page 30 of the Occasions Catalog. The sentiment is from Designer Tee, a Sale-a-bration stamp set. The skirt was created with a die from the Window Box Thinlits . . . she just had to trim away one "ruffle" to make it fit. How clever!
Josie Schneider created a spring forest behind her heart by lightly stamping the debossed side of of the paper. She used the Woodland Embossing Folder and stamped with leaves from Sheltering Tree . . . which is also home to the sentiment that she used. I love the the bit of burlap she attached as an accent behind her sentiment. Such a sweet touch!
Judy Hamen created a spring sympathy card. She used words from Flourishing Phrases and the leaves are from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set. Then, she painstakingly punched many, many little flowers with the Tree Builder Punch to decorate the outside and the inside of her card. The kindness and caring that went into this card is obvious!
Shelly Lommel made a spring card with the Butterfly Basics and the coordinating thinlits. She sponged spring-like colors onto a panel of Whisper White and then did a Whisper White Butterfly overlay. This is one of those cards that has a subtle beauty that is hard to capture with a camera. I also love the Subtles Enamel Shapes accentuating this card.
Cindy LeMire used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits with words from the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Avant Garden. The background designer paper used in this card is called Succulent Garden. She sponged color onto a strip of white paper and then cut it out and layered it behind the dragonfly for that pop of spring color.
Faith Boston created a card with the Moon Baby stamp set. She detail cut each image and popped them up on dimensionals over a soft Mint Macaron background found in the designer series paper pack called By the Shore. She overlaid each stamped star with a foil sequin star for a little sparkle. Just a darling and sweet card to welcome that new little baby into the world!
Mary Bellis used Big on Birthdays from our Spring Occasions Catalog. To make it very spring-like, she used paper from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper Pack. I love the combo of Peekaboo Peach, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder. The little mini paper clip is the perfect way to add a bit of ribbon accentuating the Delicate White Doily. Lots of fun details!
Dawn Michels used the Beautiful You stamp set and with a swoosh and a swoosh, her image was colored in! Pearls accentuate the hat and waistline. The gorgeous foiled paper is from the Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack called Affectionately Yours and it is layered over a panel of copper foil. Mint Macaron Sheer Ribbon gives this card its finishing touch.
