Soft Seedlings Swap

Have you ever participated in a card swap? They can be a lot of fun. Last weekend, I met up with some of my stamping friends in Arizona and we exchanged cards.

Card Swap

Normally, when you participate in a Card Swap, you will make several of the same card. For example, in this swap, there were 27 participants. Everyone made 28 cards (an extra for the display board), and we exchanged them one-for-one. So, I came home with 27 different cards! It’s a great way to get new ideas and samples of products you may not own.

I made 28 of these cards for the swap I participated in. My friend LaAnna came over to help me put these together. She’s always there when I need her, and I appreciate her!

Soft Seedlings

This stamp set was one of the first to catch my eye in the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog. I love the maple leaf and the fun little seedlings. We always called these “whirlybirds” when I was growing up. I also love the pretty font for the greetings.

This is a stand-alone stamp set…. no punches or dies, just beautiful images.

Flowing Flowers Notecards

It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop, and today’s hop features notecards. I used the Flowing Flowers stamp set to make these simple cards.

Flowing Flowers Notecards

When I saw the theme for this hop, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make. I’d just finished cutting for my upcoming stamp club and had these scraps of DSP (designer series paper) on my desk. So, that decided my color combination for the project! Next, I looked through my new stamp sets to see what I hadn’t used yet. Hence, the Flowing Flowers Notecard was born.

As you can see, this image is rich in color. To get this color, I first inked the flower portion of the stamp on my Pale Papaya ink pad. Next, I took a dauber and added Flirty Flamingo ink directly to my stamp in the center of the flower and on the speckles. I then added Pear Pizzazz ink directly to the leaves of the stamp with a separate dauber.

Now what? I had all this pretty color on my stamp, so I took a deep breath and breathed directly onto the inked stamp to remoisten any ink that had dried and immediately stamped my image onto the white panel.

Flowing Flower Notecard Detail

I needed some bling (who doesn’t need more bling in their life?) so I added our Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Although these look like gold embellishments, they are actually basic clear rhinestones colored with Pale Papaya Blends.

Flowing Flower Notecard Group

Flowing Flowers is a great stamp set to use for notecards. Not only does it have beautiful images, but it has several greetings for all occasions.
