Sharing Convention Swaps

I promised to share some of the swaps that I received when I attended convention.
The cards I selected to share today are each unique and beautifully crafted.

 Hot Diggity Dog stamp set was used by Colleen Leudeke to create this cute Pugs and Kisses card.

 The hearts and the use of the new hearts border punch add a nice touch.

"Thank you" by Susan Legits uses the Work of Art stamp set.  I love it in the Hello Honey color.

This baby card by Bonnie Shoup is so cute using the baby onesie and the dotted necktie. The images come from Baby, We've Grown  and Something for Baby stamp sets.
The choices of colors and the design elements used to make each one of these cards are just wonderful!

Cheerful Giggle Greetings

I made this cheerful get well card for a friend who needs some cheering up! 
I used bright colors and the Gorgeous Grunge stamps set to accompany the Giggle Greetings stamped images.
Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are about a cheery as I  can get!  The little chevron-style arrow came from the Circle Card Thinlits set.
The greeting on the Window Frames (framelits) Collection was purposely stamped on an angle to give the card some interest.  The Festive Paper Piercing pack around the Cherry Cobbler window frame provides detail. The Decorative Dots TIEF  adds needed texture to the background.

I always welcome your comments!

Bloom With Hope

This pretty card was made with a new Hostess Set, Bloom With Hope. Inspiration came from the catalog photo on  page 240.
The flowers were stamped with Momento ink and colored with a Razzleberry ink refill and an Aqua Painter.
Two oval framelits formed the frame, and the background paper is the lovely Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in gold.
The Happy Birthday greeting is embossed with gold E.P. and curved to make a flared banner.  It was attached with glue dots.

Bloom with Hope beauty

The idea for this card came from the one page 55 of the new catalog.  I decided to use the lovely flower from Bloom With Hope hostess set for the main image, and changed  the card from a square to a regular A-2 size. 
The white speckles were made with the Gorgeous Grunge set, and the greeting is from the Apothecary Art stamp set.
The small banner punch was used for the ends on the white strip.

I love using card ideas from our Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Petite Petals Plus More

While  browsing through the new catalog I found a card on page 125 that I liked. When I started to make my card, I decided to step it up a bit. 
Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and a stamp from Summer Silhouettes I created the background for the small area on the front.  The Chalk Talk Framelits, Petite Petals stamp set and punch, and Bitty Banners stamp set and Framelits completed the front.  The  beautiful swirl is from Everything Eleanor.

The inside of the card was stamped with the same swirl.  I like to decorate the inside, stamping lightly so it can be written over if necessary.

List of Supplies:

Stamp sets: Petite Petals, Itty Bitty Banners,  Everything Eleanor, Summer Silhouettes
Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Garden Green, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Garden Green, VersaMark,
Accessories: Gold EP, Bitty Banners Framelits, Big Shot, Heat Tool, Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals
