Swap Showcase #2

Howdy stampers!
Did you enjoy yesterday's Swap cards? There are some very talented stampers in Stampin' Up! I'm so blessed to know many of them!

This week, through Thursday, I'm showcasing some of my very favorite Swap cards from Convention. I am currently on vacation in Myrtle Beach and I thought it would be a great time to share some of the fabulous artwork and inspiration I was lucky enough to receive from some dear friends and some new ones too! I'll be back to regular posting on Friday, but for now - I'm unplugged! :)

ALL of these cards were made by other artists - NONE of them were created by me. I've placed my watermark on each photo to protect the artists work and listed them individually beneath each card.

These cards today really said SUMMER to me in a variety of ways. Some of them use stamps from the Summer Mini Catalog that's ends on August 31st so be sure to check them out closely and make sure you've got those products before they are gone!

Love the unique fold and design of this card! She combined the new Delicate Doilies stamp set with the Swirls and Curls Verses Hostess stamp set in the Summer Mini. Beautiful color combo too!

Card by Laura Barto

This artist combined the Bold Blossom stamp set with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch and the Happy Greetings stamp set. Both of the stamp sets are going bye-bye on the 31st, but the punch is in the new big Catalog! Check out the layers on her greeting - fabulous!

This lovely card uses our pink tones so well - I love how elegant everything looks here. The Fabulous Florets stamp set looks entirely different in this setting. I love the punched out frame too! Another dear friend gave me this card and honestly, I could have showcased all of the cards she gave me, they were all gorgeous!

And what's Summer without ice cream? This card is the perfect combination of the new Just Add Cake Designer Paper (which is part of the Buy 3, Get 1 Free sale this month) and the new Pennant Parade stamp set! Love that she made it an ice cream cone! Know what the ice cream is? The icing from the Cupcake Builder Punch! Oh yeah!~ Another great card from a dear friend. I told you I knew some talented people! :)

Ok, Summer is obviously in full swing around here - be sure to stop back tomorrow for some more fantastic swap cards. All Occasions are up next!

Stamped blessings,
