Card Swap

My upline Dawn organised a card swap recently and these were the samples I came up with. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else made as we have such talented people in our little SU family. The first two use the From the Garden (level 1 hostess gift) stamp. This is a huge stamp and I couldn't decide if I liked it better coloured in using a pretty in pink marker or left "au natural".

Other supplies used:
Paisley Background stamp
Oval All stamps
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in pink, certainly celery
Ink & markers: Chocolate chip, certainly celery, pretty in pink
Punches: Oval, Scalloped oval

My other design (yes we had to make two different cards x8 of each) used the Pick a Petal set - I love this set. It is so versatile. As well as using it to stamp flowers it can also be used to make lady bugs, butterflies, hearts and even surf boards...and lots more as well.

Background Cardstock: certainly celery & pretty in pink
Paper: Green check from Holiday Treasures pack (not just for Christmas!); Assorted pink petals stamped on Sweet Always paper
Sentiment from Best Yet (level 1 hostess set)
Stem from Petal Pizzaz (I think! One of the new ones from the mini anyway - too lazy to run upstairs and check!)

I also had to make a card for my 14 year old nephew's birthday. And as we were giving him money (what else for a teen!) I decided to make a card that looked (a bit) like a wallet.
