Heartfelt Stampers Swaps

There is so much talent in our Heartfelt Stampers team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators!  I'm sharing just a few of my favorite swaps I received at our Team Time in March.

Here's a swap from Aly Schilling, my daughter and team leader.  I love her unusual color combination.  Here's Elements of Style again!  Doesn't it have such a different look?  View two other cards using this preview set from the Summer Mini Catalog HERE and HERE.  You can order yours beginning May 1st!

Next is a beautiful card by Phyl Lyons.  Phyl used Of the Earth Hostess stamp set, as well as Well Scripted, with a beautiful palette of Ruby Red, Bordering Blue, Old Olive and Whisper White.  She used the Texturz Plates Kit #4 to add dimension to the Bordering Blue card stock.

Next is a gorgeous card from Pam Kane.  Pam used the Level 2 hostess stamp set called Asian Artistry.  I love her layout, especially all the layering and the torn and folded corners.

Here's a fun card from Christine Luce.  Christine prepared her background by coloring with Watercolor Crayons in Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange and Pixie Pink, then used an AquaPainter to colorwash the background. She used Choo Choo stamp set and stamped the train image with StazOn Black Ink.  Great card!

Next up is Patty Braun's beautifully simple card using C is for Cat.  Notice that her special feline friend sports a blingy color made with Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds.  She embossed the background with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder.

Jen Rios-Raner led our make-and-take project, and she showed us how to use the Tulipe Die with the Big Shot to make our own stencil.  Then add color to your card stock by sponging on inks with the Sponge Daubers.  We also added more interest to the stencil image by rolling it with the Very Vintage jumbo wheel found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  We added some other darling little details with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon and Pretty in Pink Sending Love Epoxy Brad.  I always love Jen's deslgns!

Sketch layout challenge

If you'll recall, back HERE I challenged my blog readers to come up with a card using a particular layout.  I received these two fabulous cards from Phyl Lyons of Seneca Falls, NY. 

In this first card, Phyl used Forest Friends stamp set.  At only $14.95, this stamp set is a great buy!

The card below uses a Level 1 hostess stamp set called Of the Earth.  The same tree image from Forest Friends is stamped tone-on-tone.  I love Phyl's bright color scheme in this one!

Beautiful cards, Phyl!  Just love what you came up with!  Thanks so much for sharing them with us!
