Swap Cards...

I have a few swaps that I'm in monthly and these are 2 of the swap cards that I sent out..

I don't know about you but, I'm loving "Trendy Trees". I think it's my new favorite set..

Trendy Trees: Retired DSP, Really Rust, Sage Shadow & Very Vanilla Card Stock. Retired Chocolate poly twill ribbon. 1 3/8 circle & scallop circle punch. Inks: Sage Shadow &Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pads, Really rust & More Mustard Markers.

*If you look at the Tree Close up you will see the Mustard and Rust on the leaves.. This is a pretty cool Technique.. I'm sure it has a name but I just call it Marker Bouncing! You stamp the leaves in the sage ink and then tap the ends of your marker tips onto the image and when you stamp you have the different colors showing up.

Love this card!!!It came together so pretty..

Stamp Sets: Upsy daisy & Frames with a flourish. Non SU white card stock. SU retired DSP. 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon. Inks: Bashful Blue, Night of Navy & Old Olive.

I stamped the Flowers in Night of Navy First and then I stamped again with the Bashful Blue.. You just move the stamp over a bit from where you had it the first time. Super Quick Card.. And Don't forget your Stamp-a-ma-jig.. Love that tool!

I've been busy all week working on projects for the SU Artisan Award but I can't show you what I've been up too so you will have to stay tuned..

  1. The technique is called Thumping. You ink up the stamp, then take a marker or markers and thump them on the rubber randomly.

    Nice card! I like it...
