We had a much smaller swapping group this time around because many were waiting on pins and needles to see the new catalog . . . which they now have! But, of the the ones in our group who did participate, all I can say is WOW!! Way to go!! Cindy’s card above starts out with a birthday greeting over a field of polka dots.
When you open the card up – it’s Blast Off time! A cute fold for some cute images and a perfect card for kids!
Mary’s card is with a stamp set that is staying around called Zoo Babies. Each animal sports some kind of sweet detail. The giraffe has a mane with the Baked Brown Sugar Stretch Trim, the rhino has a ribbon, the alligator is holding up a flag and the elephant has a floppy ear. So cute!!
Katherine’s card used a photopolymer stamp set that was barely here before it sold out called Sweetie Pie. She stamped all the faces in Smoky Slate except the one she colored to make it stand out in the crowd. The Silver Ribbon is a nice touch, too. The sentiment is from Million and One.
Dawn also picked Zoo Babies to make her kid card. LOVE the grassy look along the bottom edge of this card created with the Fringe Scissors. I also like how each of the animals was cut out and framed a little bit differently which also adds a lot of nice detail to this card. The colors are great, too!
And finally, here is my card. I used it for my demo meeting swap as well as my swap for the cruise. The stamp set is called So Very Happy, which I received in January at Leadership in Houston. It’s really a nice one for kids. The flower was colored with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities pack that I “won” in a drawing at a Stampin’ Up! Unite and Excite event. The rest of the card was colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share.
