The first card design is completely CASE'd from my friend Amy. She sent me it a couple of years ago and I really like the colors.
The second card uses a color combination inspired by some of our current Christmas designer series paper and uses our new stamp set Delightful Decorations with its coordinating punch.The next card uses a unique color combination that comes from the designer series paper used in it. I also used a little bit of glitter to jazz this one up even more.The next card I CASE'd but can't remember from where. I just love the deer transformed into Rudolph! This card gets jazzed up with an embossed background and bright, fun ribbon. The last card is one I've been wanting to try and finally took the plunge - using acetate (window sheets). I love how this is a simple card but looks like so much more because of the clear sheet! Too fun!
I do hope to see you this Saturday! If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me!

The colors I used matched the plates she "picked" out that was kind of tropical. I used Pink Passion, So Saffron and Gable Green - very bright and girly!

I thought they all turned out so nice and I thought it was interesting that she also used a sage shadow/chocolate chip combo - great minds think alike!

The first one I made using the Always set (LOVE this set - especially the bird!). I originally made this for a workshop I did for my now down-line, Robyn. She's really into vintage/shabby chic so I really wanted to come up with a project I thought she'd love. I got my inspiration from this card on splitcoast. Sage Shadow isn't one I use very much but I'm pretty pleased with the way this card came out!
The next one I made was for another workshop I did for Kelly. She's a young, hip mom to a one year old and I wanted to come up with a project using another one of my favorite stamp sets - 5th Avenue Floral. I used the spritzer tool and everyone really loved that - it is a pretty cool little tool!!
For the next project, I knew I wanted to use Bella's Bloom but it's such a small set, I wasn't sure how to incorporate it on a full-size card. So, once again, I got my inspiration from splitcoast and this card. I couldn't find any patterned paper I really wanted to use with it so I finally decided to use the texturez plates for the big shot to create a pattern. Here's what I came up with.
Here's a close-up of the background I made using the texturez plate.
For my final project I just happened to get a box with new stampin' supplies the day I wanted to sit and finish my projects so I HAD to use a great new set from the mini that starts April 1st called Great Friend - LOVE the butterfly. I guess there's something about an image with flowers and all drawn into it for me! For this card I actually got my inspiration from page 92 of the current Idea Book and Catalog - it uses a butterfly similar to the one from Great Friend.
Here's a close-up of the butterfly - I layered two of them. One I stamped in Baja Breeze and the other in Pretty in Pink. On the top one, I used Crystal Effects to add a little shimmer (not sure if you can see it in this shot or not)!
Well, I took pictures of the swaps I received and plan to share them through-out this week so keep coming back to see the great swaps!
Thank you, Beverly, for the cute card!

And here's the giftcard holder:
The inspiration for the colors was the Always paper and it was fall so the colors seemed appropriate.
