Wow card using Flower Shop

This card was a swap I received from my DOWNLINE Deb at convention. I love this design! Notice that she cut out the card base to give a unique shape to the front of the card.

Safely Home

Coming home from convention is always bitter sweet. I miss my hubby so I am excited about see him, but I will miss all my girlfriends and the excitement if convention.

So since I was feeling melancholy
I thought sharing some of my swaps would brighten my mood.

The card below is beautifully done. I do not have a name in the swap to give credit. I love the color combination and the unique focal point.



Below I have blown up the focal so you could see how the artist used the butterfly punch and then layered with Design Series paper below.

Christmas Bliss from Jen

CHRISTMAS BLISS

I like planning ahead. And because there are so many things to do to get ready for the holidays, you can never start too early!

I love that Stampin’ Up! is offering Christmas Bliss in July. It’s a fun, fresh Christmas set with a variety of greetings and styles. It has both images and sentiments, making it great for both cards and treat packaging.  Whether you stick to using reds and greens, or you dabble with non-traditional holiday colors as I have, you can’t go wrong with this cute set!
 

Best of all, getting things done early allows you to relax and spend time with friends and family. That’s true Christmas Bliss.
