Swapping Time

So I decided to join a card swap over at SCS. It a Pink and Brown Birthday Swap. Yes you heard right....Birthday Swap. I totally skipped over that when I read and joined. I mailed my cards out before I even noticed. The girls over there have been really great about it. I am such a flake!!

I used the D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug Folder, Circle Nesties, and two stamp sets. The swirlies and the butterfly are Stampendous. The hello is Hero Arts. I think I really like this card. It is simple, yet cute. What do you think?

Stamp Club Card

My mom and I belong to this dinner stamp club in St. Charles where we meet once a month, eat dinner, learn a technique, and exchange cards using the previous month's technique. Well my mom, being the over-achiever that she is, finished her card last night.

The technique was a simple one....just a few drops of acrylic paint which you then pull over the paper with a credit card or something like it.
She used red and green Metallic Acrylic Paint from Folk Art. Once it dried (which was really fast), she stamped the Holly Swirls in Noir Palette Ink. She also used red stickled on the holly berries.
She stamped the Joy in Moulin Rouge Palette Ink and after it dried, she covered the panel with versamark ink DTP. She the sprinkled Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder and heat set it. It came out so sparkly!
TAC Stamps: Holly Swirls, Joy of Christmas
Paper: Bazzil Bling Red and Green

Diamond Island Projects

Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to Diamond Island in Michigan and spend time with some Illinois and Ohio Angels. We had a blast! (I hope I didn't get voted off the island? LOL!) Anyhoo, we all brought projects with us and I believe we will be showing them off every Sunday. I, on the other hand, am always a day late and a dollar short.

This was Teri's awesome project. It was a 6x6 Scrapbook purse. I got to use one of my favorite paper collections, Penelope, on this project. It is really awesome in person as it has been handstitched with a brown marker (by Teri, I must add. I am way too lazy!) There are two pockets with hidden circles for pictures or journaling.
TAC Stamps used: Forever Family, Life Thoughts
Paper: Penelope SWIC

Swap Card

I made this card for a blue and brown swap I joined at TAC444. I was really excited about this card because everything but the sentiment comes from one stamp set. I even used Baby Blue Opaque Stazon (which I don't think I have used since I bought it a year ago). Anyway, this card was a CASE from the new Take Ten magazine. I just used my own stamps. I know this was cheating but I just fell in love with this card. I wish I could remember the gals name....she had a whole article close to the back if that helps anyone. It showed how to use white pigment ink and color over with colored pencils once it was dry. Great article! As soon as I get over to my mom's I will update with the name of the person and article.
