Hey, all, my fave group of swapping stampers is up to their usual tricks! You can read all about it HERE. This first card is for the Autumn Splendor category. I used my Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge to cut out the card base and patterned layer. Nesties were used for the focal image. Stamp set is PTI's Fall Elegance from last year. I decided to use masking on this card--an old technique, but a goodie. I built up my little fall flourish and cut it out (arrghh! see how much I love these gals?!) and popped it up over the top of the focal point. Card base is PTI cream. Scalloped oval layer is SU Really Rust. I embellished with a couple of Dew Drops. This patterned paper by PTI is pretty much my fave paper ever--love the rich glowing colors and the lovely patterns.
This card is for the regular cards category. Card base is SU Crumb Cake, stamp set is Love Lives Here. I die cut the little house from PTI cream, then stamped it with Crumb Cake and PTI Pure Poppy ink. I die cut the Mat Stack 1 die and embossed it with PTI's wood grain impression plate. Scalloped layer is done with Nesties out of Pure Poppy CS. Patterned paper is PTI; border punch, eyelets (ret.), and gingham ribbon (ret.) are all SU. I'm so please with how this turned out! I hope whoever gets them is pleased as well.
There were some other categories that I didn't join. I did join the die cut swap and did Tiny Tags and Love Lives Here dies for my spots. So excited to see what I get back--it's just like Christmas when I get this swap back! Thanks for stopping by--have a great day.
