Team Card Swaps for July

Hi Stamping friends! Today I’m sharing some beautiful creations made by my very talented team of demonstrators.

The theme for the team card swaps for July was anything made with something NEW from the Stampin’ Up! 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog! I absolutely love my team! We are the Treehouse Chicks, and we have a ton of fun together! If you’d like to learn more about joining my team I’d love to answer any questions you might have.

Angela Glass made this first card. I think she did an awesome job especially considering that it was the first card swap she’d ever participated in. Her project features the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.

This next project is from Aimee Johnson. Her project is made with the Best Bunny Stamp Set and the Bunny Builder Punch.

Aimee’s card has a very fun and special feature. The bunny actually bounces! She created a bit of a mini spring in behind the bunny to get this effect and I think it’s just the cutest thing!

Barb Menzel made this next project. It is made with the Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty Stamp Sets.

I think this was also Barb’s first card swap in the group as well. She used the Blends Alcohol Markers to color the images on this adorable card.

Check out this unique and fun card made by Melissa Riehn. It features the Graceful Glass Suite of products and a technique that uses a string to create the interesting element you see on this card.

Melissa agreed to demonstrate the technique at the August team gathering. It was so fun to play with! More on that coming soon.

 

This final project was created by Wanda Williams and is made with the Petal Promenade Designer Paper and the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.

This is such gorgeous designer paper and I love this clean and simple card!

Happy Crafting!

I am a seeker of that crazy, excited feeling that comes when you've created something that’s unique, beautiful and expresses who you are in some small way. It’s like making a new discovery, when you find a unique combination of color, layout, dimension and texture. I call it a creative spark and it makes me giddy! Through sharing and teaching I hope to help others find this amazing feeling of creative bliss!
