Summer Swaps & Inspiration

Hi stamp lovers!  I’ve been off my blog for a few weeks and getting ready for the annual Stampin’ Up convention in Utah. I leave Wednesday morning and all day today I thought I was leaving tomorrow. I’m actually AHEAD of myself and now have time to share a few swaps with you!    By the way, those that tune in to see what is happening at the SU convention, I’ll be doing one blog post a day but posting throughout the day over on my Stamping School Face Book page.  (be sure to LIKE it if you haven’t already)

Seems less frequent emails might be better and I’ll just summarize here once a day for those not on FB.

First, SU has a recruiting offer in addition to the $99 starter kit.  You can print the actual flyer HERE

to see the kits.

Three of the kits are products from the Holiday catalog, which starts Aug 1st.

Ready for some stamping inspiration?

Here are a few of my favorite swaps I received from the last few months.

This beauty was done by Mary Hall.   Modern Medley DSP (page 154) that is all Black and Vanilla patterns.

What the picture fails to show is that Mary added glitter to just the shaded areas of the flower – gorgeous!

20130712-233710.jpgSee the adorable punched accent?  She used the Mosaic punch (page 180) in a whole new way!

More Mosaic stamps and punches in the new In Colors by Rhea Hughes.

I have trouble using this set sometimes because I like things grounded  not floating but Rhea pulled it off with great scale and balance!

Susie Brown made this cute 4″ square card.  The Gingham Garden and Daffodil Delight scream summer, right?

Sarah Rigby and I did a stamp a stack together and she made this card using Regarding Dahlias

in 3 colors:  The Pistachio Pudding above,  Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Sky.  They were all so pretty!

Deb Townsend made this happy, colorful card using Chalk Talk .

She stamped whisper white ink on a dark blue, Midnight Muse I think, and it looks great.

Karen Titus, my up up line in Minnesota, sent out this card to me for a good job this month.

I prefer to think the alligator is just talking to the rhino, not trying to take a big bite out of him 🙂

Such a simple card but so great for all those occasions  when nothing else will do but a moose.  I think we could make him into a Chrismoose and hang ornaments and tinsel on his antlers 🙂   Really a great masculine card!   Created my Mary Ammar.

Made with love by Rhea Hughes.  I loved the color combo of white, navy and razzleberry!
