My cards I sent to the lovely ladies....
Good afternoon all, as promised from the blog post 22nd May I have all of the beautiful card swaps that I received in the week, from all of the fellow demonstrators that took part in an annual catalogue card swap. I was so excited to receive all of the swaps and share them with you all. Hope this gives you all a lot of inspiration with some of the new amazing products that Stampin' Up! have in the new catalogue.................
Nadine Stopp from Germany
This one was made using the beautiful 'Blossom in Bloom' bundle which can be found on page 20 of the catalogue. I love the way Nadine has used the soft colour of fresh freesia for the flowers and just added a few of the die cut flowers on top to give it a bit of depth such a pretty birthday card.
Marie Messum from UK
This one was made using the really cute 'Party Puffins' stampset which can be found on page 67 of the catalogue, aren't they just adorable. Love the burst of colour on the front of
the card using Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Bumble Bee, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron cardstock, and then stamping on the inside of the card with a different pufiin it's such a cute card.
Karen Henderson from UK
Wow this is a very pretty card using the 'Hand-penned Petals' bundle page 105 and the 'Scalloped Contours' dies page 158. Such a pretty card using all of the new in colours too. Karen has stamped here beautiful die cut flowers for the front of her card using first generation ink and then it looks to me like she has used the 2nd generation of ink for the inside of the card - not wasting any ink, very clever love it.
Sandie Brain from UK
I love the silhouette effect that Sandie has created using the lovely 'Quiet meadow' dies from page 110 both on her card and the envelope front, such a lovely idea. The paper that she has used is from the 'Hand-Penned' ds from page 131. Very pretty card.
Cheryl Taylor from UK
Cheryl has used the 'Flowers of friendship' stampset from page 78 for her card and all of the pretty new In-colors of the 'Stampin' blends' pens from page 123 creating a very pretty thankyou card with a lovely stamped image on the envelope and a sentiment on the inside too.
Louise Daniels from UK
Louise has made a lovely card that has the side of it cut down and then a square panel added to the front. I love the way that the stamping she has done matches up from the front to the inside absolutely brilliant idea. She has used 'Hand-Penned' stampset page 105, and for the corner of the square front panel she has used the 'Detailed trio' punch page 150. In color shimmer vellum on page 135 is used on the square panel and the sentiment on the front of the card comes from the very clever 'Days to remember' stampset page 18.
Helen Speakman from UK
Helen has created this beautiful card using the 'Scalloped Contour' dies page 158, 'Hand-Penned' dsp page 131, 'Brilliant wings' dies page 158 and the 'Hand-Penned' stampset for the sentiment on the front of the card. I lve the way that Helen has decorated the inside of her card makes it a very elegant card for giving, The butterfly on the front of her card is just exquisite I do love to see a butterfly on a card.
Sandra Hagenlocher from Germany
Sandra has made this very elegant card using just 2 colours Pale Papaya and Soft Succulents and isn't it pretty? Sandra has used the 'Color and Contour' bundle from page 98 for all of her stamping and die cutting and I love how she has stamped the tiny flowerbud on the corner of the inside of the card.
Claire Kruse from UK
Claire has made this great thankyou card using Mossy Meadow cardstock and a piece of the 'Beauty of the earth' dsp page 130 she has also used 'Beauty of frienship' stampset to do her stamping on the front of the card, the inside and also on the front of her envelope. I think this is a great card for a male birthday as well as her great thankyou card.
Suzanne Downes from UK
Love this cute notecard that Suzanne has made. She has used the 'Hand-Penned Petals' stampset page 105 for the front of her card using black ink and then used the Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya and Soft Succulents ink refills page 123 to paint the insides of the flower and leaves with, very clever effect this has given to the card. The inside of the card has also been stamped just using the black ink this time looks really lovely when you open the card up, the sentiment for the inside comes form the 'Dragonfly garden' stampset on page 23 and the actual focal point piece on the front of the card is punched out usinf the 'Rectangular postage stamp' punch form page 149.
Joyce Drake from UK
Love the colours Joyce has used for her card Pale Papya and Evening Evergreen, don't they look beautiful together. She has used the'Flowers of frienship' stampset page 78 and the 'Stitched So Sweetly' dies on page 166 to create her card front and the inside of the card too. The dsp she has used is from the 2021-2023 In-Colors dsp on page 134 think the papers finish this very pretty elegant card off just perfectly.
Tracy Hill from UK
Tracy has used the 'Color and Contour' bundle page 98 along with the 'Rectangle Stitched' dies page 165 to create this rather beautiful card. She has incorporated all of the new In-colors onto her card and softly stamped the inside of her card and the envelope too. I think it is a really pretty card.
Kathrin Kust from Germany
For the last card in this most inspirational collection of cards I have for you Kathrin has made this using the 'Quiet Meadow' bundle form page 110 to die cut the 'Shimmer vellum' page 135 fern out of and for the inside of the card she has used 'Painted Poppies' page 24 the 'Scallop contour' dies from page 158 have been used for the front of the card layered over a piece of the 'Vellum cardstock' page 136. Love the way she has decorated the inside of her card finishes it off perfectly.
