GETTING CAUGHT UP!

I have not really been neglecting all of you!  I am on vacation, and had every intention of posting each morning, but I got all caught up in sitting by the pool and touring Indianapolis... so, I am catching up now.  Below are four posts of cards Keri made for our New Catalog Swap.  I hope you enjoy them.

I will be posting my New Catalog Swap cards next, so be sure to stop back by and check them out!

THE LAST REALLY GOOD GREETINGS CARD!

This is the last card Keri made for our swap.  For this card she used the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Honeycomb Embossing Folder for the Big Shot and the sentiment from Really Good Greetings.

REALLY GOOD GREETINGS ONE MORE TIME!


For this card Keri used a very unique, fun masking technique.  She took a piece of regular copy paper and cut a heart out of it.  Then she inked up her Woodgrain Background stamp with White Stazon Ink.  Then she put the piece of copy paper with the heart cut out of it onto her inked up stamp and then put her cardfront on top of the copy paper and rubber her hand over where the heart cutout was.  She embossed her greeting from Really Good Greetings in white onto a Blossom Flower Punch and added some leaves made with some Designer Series Paper from the Color Collections Stack.  She topped it off with some Pearl Jewels down in the corner.

MORE REALLY GOOD GREETINGS!

Another one of Keri's New Catalog swap cards!
For this card Keri incorporated the Boho Blossoms Punch and the new Mosaic Punch, along with some rhinestones to give it a little bling!  The sentiment comes from Really Good Greetings.

REALLY GOOD GREETINGS!

This is one of Keri's cards from our New Catalog Swap.  She also used the Qutrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper and the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder for the Big Shot.

MORE MOSAIC MADNESS!

Print Friendly and PDF
This is another one of Caroline's swap cards.  I love how she incorporated all of the color with the punches and then did a simple "White-On-White" layering.  She added a little extra dimension by using the coordinating embossing folder and some dimensionals.  This is a very quick and easy card to make when you use the coordinating stamps and punches!

ANOTHER LABEL LOVE CARD!

One more swap card from Nancy!
I love the way Nancy used the punch to make little "peek-a-boo" holes on the front of her card.  I think this is a really nice technique, and I will definitely be using it in the future!

We have one more card from Nancy, and then we will move on to another swapper and another new product from the new catalog!

WOW!

My blog readers are the best!!  I am shocked to have already met my goal of 109,000 blog hits.  It is very exciting to think so many people have stopped by my blog since its beginning in 2007.  I hope you continue to stop by often and find some creative inspiration here.

THANK YOU!

MORE LABEL LOVE!

This is another one of the cards Nancy made for our New Catalog Swap.  I love the soft look the Finishing Touches Edgelits (for the Big Shot) gives to her card.  It really "fancies" (yep, that is a word ;o) the card up!
