More Swap Shares

 I promised to share more of the cards I created for the "Every Stamp Set Swap".As I mentioned in a previous post I signed up for 11 categories in the swap so had about 175 cards to make.  I was "forcing" myself to create a simple but pretty card.  Hard to do some times for me - I tend to want to add a lot of layers, embellishments and details.

Fabulous You (Item 126522)
  I love how this card turned out.  The stamp set is amazing - I love the shoe and the sentiment.
Creative Elements (Item 122647)
Creative Elements is one of my favourite stamp sets and I love using the collage technique. 
Life Shared (Item 126820)
 If anyone grew up reading "Fun with Dick and Jane" books (yep showing my age), then this stamp set may bring back memories.  I decided to use some bold colours - Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point and then water colour the image. 

Papaya Collage (Item 126612)

I really like this stamp set, but always struggle a little bit to figure out what to do with it.  The frame is really versatile and can be used for so much.  I definitely have to spend some more time playing with it, but I was happy with how this turned out.









I have more swaps to share plus new cards I've been making for family and friends birthdays coming up in September and October.  Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stamping!
