Petals a Plenty Swap Cards / Day Three's Question



Today I'm sharing a couple more swap cards that I received at the Regionals last week. They both use the Petals a Plenty Sizzix Embossing Folder out of the new Holiday Mini Catalog. Wowsa!

Card #1- Made by my very own downline, Mindy Gray. Isn't it beautiful? She used Glossy White, Bashful Blue and Night of Navy Cardstocks. The Dove is stamped in Night of Navy Craft Ink (I don't think I've ever stamped with our craft inks on glossy paper, but I have to tell you, I'm going to have to do it soon. The image looks almost velvety, it's just beautiful!). She also used the Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon and the Sizzix Top Note die. Sigh!

Card #2- The owner of this card emailed me this morning and actually thanked me for my swap at the regionals. How sweet is that?! I just had to laugh because the girls I was with and I oohed and aahed over HER card for a long time on Friday! It's amazing how a little addition of White Sakura Gel Pen in the center of these flowers made them POP! She actually had to glue 13 different pieces of paper together for this stunning creation. She used Basic Black, Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter, Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstocks . Stamped images are from the Serene Snowflakes and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. In addition to the Petals a Plenty Impressions folder, she used the Eyelet Border, Scallop Oval and Large Oval Punches. This card is just amazing in person!

I hope you're enjoying seeing the swap cards, I feel like I see something new everytime I look through them. It's very inspiring for me :)

For the chance at the blog candy, here's Question #3:
What is the latest and greatest Paper Crafted item you've made? Was it a scrapbook page, a card or an altered item. Maybe it was a little piece of Home Decor? Won't you tell us a little bit about it?

And now, I'm off to stamp something. I'm working on a few 'magical' items for an upcoming Halloween Treats class. I should be ready to post it sometime this week, so be sure you come back now, ya hear? ;) I hope you have a great day!

I have not made anything lately. I am planning on making a journal for my MOPS group next month. I will get coposition books from a department store, and the ladies and I will scrap the 4 hard sides of the book.

I've been finishing up class kits from CKC over the summer. The last project of my own was a snow storm mini album. I also made a mini gratitude album for a gift using tags and my BIA.

Lately I've been making cards, however, I did make a couple of 8x8 pages for a calendar swap. There was a space for a 4x6 photo and then decorated for the month's theme. Eache person made two months so that you had an entire calendar for next year. I think I'm going to use it as an 8x8 year in review album.

The last thing I made that wasn't at a class of yours, was a card set from a 12x12 piece of paper. One of those that you can make 8 cards from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper? I'm actually used a few of them, too!

The last paper craft I did was a mini album for a friend to scrap vacation pictures in. (Based on your class Terri).
