Sense of Time

Happy Easter everyone. This a another swap card I made for an Occasions Mini swap I was part of last month. I did a lot of sponging with Sahara Sand ink on this card. It is really hard to see in the picture but I used the En Francais background stamp on the basic gray layer in Sahara Sand ink and added some paper piercing along the right hand side. It is very subtle but it adds to the overall look of the card. The circles were cut using my circle scissors tool. I just love this stamp set. I think it can have a lot of uses in both cardmaking and scrapbooking. There is a link to the Occasions mini catalogue in the sidebar. There are so many awesome stamps in it. Check it out for yourself. I am in the process of taking pictures of the regionals swaps I received. I have had a sick little boy this past week so this has been one of the things that got put on the back burner. Hopefully, I will be able to post some of them within the next couple of days. Talk to you later.

Stamps: Sense of Time, En Francais BG
Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White

Swap Card Part 2

This is the another card I made as a swap for regionals. The butterfly card was by far the more popular choice, though. I ran out of that one first. I couldn't believe that I made 80 swap cards in total and I could have probably brought 80 more with me. There were some amazing cards swapped that day. I will post some of the cards I received later this week. The thing I liked most about this card was the texture. I ran the kraft layer through the bigshot with a texture plate, then used my sanding block all over the raised side. It made a kind of suede feel to the cardstock.

Stamps: Ever After
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink Marker, Mellow Moss Marker
Accessories: Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon, Sanding Block, Background I Texturz Plate

Regional Swap Part 1

This is a card I made as a swap for the Stampin' Up! regionals last month. It uses Designer Series Paper and a stamp set from the new Occasions mini. I love how this card turned out. The leaves around the butterfly are stamped in Basic Grey but I stamped off on scratch paper before stamping on my card which gave it a softer look.

Stamps: Great Friend
Paper: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Walk in the Park DSP
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Versamark
Accessories: White Embossing Powder
