Team Card Swaps for August 2018

Hi Stamping friends! Today I’m sharing the card swaps from my August 2018 Team Gathering.

I know, I’m a few months behind! I figure the important thing is just sharing when I can as I love to show off the work of my team! The theme for the team card swaps for August was a super creative idea that Cindi, one of my team members suggested. She proposed that we pick a piece of clothing and design a card inspired by it. We all loved this idea and I can’t wait to share people’s projects and the clothing that inspired each project.

This first project is from Aimee Johnson. Her project is made with the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and Seasonal Layers Dies.

These second two projects are from Ammie Hintze.

The two projects in this first photo were from a prior months swap but Ammie wasn’t able to attend. I wanted to share it anyway. These are so cute don’t you think?
