Swap Card 2

151113_-_swap_2

This was the second of three swap cards that I prepared for the Milwaukee OnStage Local convention. I saw a similar card on Pinterest done in non-Stampin' Up product. I also added some simple embellishments to dress the card up a little. This could easily be used as a sympathy card if needed.

Treat holder in a flash

This is the treat holder I put together for my car roomies to and from Milwaukee last weekend. Super simple, but oh so elegant! You might use for a bridal shower or ultra feminine birthday treat.

Flurry of Wishes for Christmas

If you love snowflakes on your cards and not on your sidewalks then this is the project for you! Shades of blue with lots of glimmer, sparkle, and shine. Stamping the greeting on a vellum banner adds a special touch. I plan to use this color combination and stamp set for several projects this card making season.

With deepest Sympathy

If you are like me, you never have a sympathy card when you need it. Then you scramble to put something together to try to convey the heaviness of your heart. It happens to me more often than I care to mention. When I saw the Woodland embossing folder with the beautiful birch trees I pictured it embossed softly on vellum cardstock. I love the classic design of this card, that I will be able to change out the colors and stamp set for the seasons. I plan to make several of these to have on hand when I need them. Hope you will give it a try as well.

My newest project is a treat bag that is more cute than spooky. Perfect for the little trick or treaters that come to your house, or for adding a little treat to your coworker's day.
