Hi there! Today is the last of the shoebox swaps from a fun girls' retreat last month. Our theme was to make a sympathy, get well, or thinking of you card. The above swap was by Sally Nusbaum. The sentiment fromSassy Salutationsfit perfectly in the center of the Blossom punch. Both items can be found in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. How about that subtle polka dot background? That is the new Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP) on page 23 of the 2014 Occasions Catalog. The finishing touch is the 3/4" Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon. Who wouldn't feel better after receiving this card?
The next swap was designed by Susan Fields.
Her card is showcasing High TideDSP (in the 2014 Occasions Catalog), the Banner Blast stamp set, and coordinating Banner punch. The banner stamp set and punch are FREE products you can earn during Sale-A-Bration! Some gold Baker's Twine was used for "hanging" the banners. This is a new item in the Occasions Catalog and also comes in silver. A circle stamped with an image from Hello, Sailor and matted onto a Pacific Point shape punched from the Curly Label punch makes the perfect embellishment. What a great masculine card!
Snow is in the forecast. Looks like another day in the studio. It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it. Ha! Thank you for stopping in today!
