Hi Stampers!  Here are more of my Holiday swaps from the Founder’s Trip!  p.s.  If you want to see what fun Matt and I had this weekend, visit his page on the blog!

I think this was my favorite of the swaps!  Stamped by Giorgia Giguere, using the Top Note Die to frame their picture.  It was printed in a sepia tone and mounted under the Chocolate Chip frame.  Baja Breeze is the main card and a Baja Breeze die cut snowflake.

Stamped by Michele M. Smith from TX.  Stamp sets “A Flower For all Seasons” and “Short and Sweet” .  The base of the card is Kiwi Kiss.  She used the Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon and cs for the circle.  Markers to color in.  I thought matching up that stamp with our designer paper “Holiday Treasures” was very smart!

Stamped by ?  There wasn’t a name on the back!  Adorable little card though.  The base of the card is Certainly Celery cardstock and it is layered with Bashful Blue.   The stamp set is “Merry and Bright”

Stamped by Debbie Moczek.  The base of the card is Riding Hood Red.  Then she folded a white card, trimmed down a bit and cut a circle out of the front of the card.  There is some glitter and the taffeta ribbon tied through the circle and side of card.   Stamp set is “Holy Triptych”

Stamped by Jen Jacobsen.  “Deer Friends” L2 hostess set.  This is one you almost have to have in your hand to see how it opens.  The red layer is actually the card and is held shut with the slit punch. It is mounted on kraft cardstock.

Stamped by Natalie Travis.  This is a great workshop card!  “Bold Snowflakes” jumbo wheel is rolled with Bravo Burgundy (I think) on white cardstock.  Then I think she swiped a Mellow Moss ink pad across it for the striae effect.   The base of the card is Always Artichoke and layered with burgundy cardstock.  The tag is punched out of Kraft cs.  I love our new striped ribbon from the Holiday Mini Catalog called “Alpine”

Stamped by Beckie Kareck.  The base of the card is Pacific Point (the darker blue) and then she cut the Top Note Die frame with the Baja Breeze, so the darker blue is recessed.  Does that make sense?  The tree is embossed white on Kiwi and cut out.   For the snow on the bottom, it smells like shaving cream and some glitter!

Stamped by Stella MacKay.  It’s nice to see some Glorious Green this year!   And a creative use of the Top Note Sizzix die.  “Season of Joy” stamp set.

Stamped by Cindy Fodor.  The main card is Baja Breeze with snowflakes stamped in white craft ink.  The snowman is stamped in Baja Breeze, layered with Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip.  “Holiday Treasures” Designer paper, Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon.  Stamp set is “Two Cool Dudes”

Stamped by Janet Wakeland.  I’m a big fan of the Pacific Blue, but this card really showcases it!  She used textured cardstock and used our new big circle punch on the front of the card.  Not sure if you can see it, but the image in the circle is a metal edged tag.  The layer on the front is Baja Breeze and has a piece of Kiwi striped ribbon under it.  Stamp set is from the Holiday Mini Catalog, “Season of Simple Grace”

Stamped by Susy Miller.  Stamp set: Christmas Classics”.  Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze.  The texture on the card you see (ok, squint a little, it’s there) is possible Twill with versamark.  Nice extra touch.  Also the bell is stamped again in Baja Breeze on a scrap of white and punched out with our 1/2″ circle punch and popped up with a dimensional.

Stamped by Kimberly Van Diepen.  I like how she created a card that looks like a package to give someone!  Stamp Set is “Curly Label Punch Bundle”  with the coordinating punch.  (love that, no need to cut it out)  “Holiday Treasures” designer paper and “Snow Swirled” versamarked in the background on Riding Hood Red cs.  It’s hard to see here, but the label is glittered also.
