Stunning swaps

Some of the girls in my swap group are just incredible stampers. Notice the dry embossed and the small details on each card. The stamp is available in the occasions Mini catalog on page 21 and cut with framelets on the Big Shot.

Samples to share

These hearts were made with the "Beyond Plaid" stamp set.  A nice masculine twist for someone special.

Did you notice these cute floral rosettes?  The Occasions mini catalog is just bursting with new products!  This trim is purchased on a 2 yard spool.  See page 5.

The pinwheels are quick and easy with the Big Shot die from the Occasions mini catalog (pg 33).  Just cut and attach a brad as the center.

My second swap

I participated in two swaps for this year's Occasions catalog. That means I made many of one card, as did other participants and then we all share (usually by mail). That means I have lots of fantastic samples to share with you in the upcoming weeks !! Below you can see the dress swap I made for the first one, so here is the 2nd.

This swap uses the new hearts a flutter bundle. I stamped the banners and the hearts and then cut them out on the Big Shot. Colors are regal rose, Basic black, and pink pirouette.  This chevron embossing folder (main catalog) is one of my favorites! Stripes and chevrons are very trendy right now!
