Today's Swap

Hi everyone, I feel as if I've not posted for ages!
A quick share with you today. We had our Stampin' Stars Team Christmas Party today and I want to show you the swap I took. Apologies for my 'fuzzifoto's'!
Made using the Four Feathers stamp set and matching dies, along with Pear Pizazz ink and Silver glitter.

Here's a closer look...
This is fast becoming one of my favourite bundles!

New Stampers

Last month I ran a freebie class to introduce new people to stamping. This month 5 of the ladies returned, we made 3 Christmas cards and a tag. Simple enough for all to achieve but still smart enought to send.
Here is a close up of the first card, we stamped half of the front of the card to create a background using soft sky,smoky slate and pear pizzaz ink and the Endless Wishes stamp set. The other half was covered with All is Calm DSP. The greeting strip was stamped, added a couple of sequins and lost lagoon ribbon bow.
On the front of this next card we adhered a piece of the All is Calm DSP, stamped a greeting from the Good Greetings stamp set then layered a piece of ribbon across. The snowflakes are from Endless Wishes, punched out with circle punches and finished with a sequin.
This last card was my favourite and could easily be adapted according to your paper scraps and greetings to suit different occasions. Would make a perfect card for a man.
Lost Lagoon layered onto Whisper White. Another layer of the white onto which rectangles of cardstock and DSP (all is Calm again - I LOVE this paper!) have been layered. Finished with a greeting from Good Greetings and some snowflakes.
Finally, we made a tag. Again, using the same DSP, ribbon and embellishments but the stamped image is from Merry Everything. Finished with some white bakers twine.
What do you think? If you'd like to check out the supplies used, take a look below...
(Please note - the Good Gretings stamp set is not available for purchase at this time. It is offered as a hostess benefit on a qualifying party order),

A Little Hello

This card is CASED from some of the cards I made with Carole Bryson at her Croydon retreat earlier this summer.
It makes good use of 3 of our new In Colours and the 'Kinda Eclectic' stamp set. The greeting is from 'Four You'.
I feel sure it will bring some sunshine into the recipients day!

Flower Patch Shoebox Swap

Hi there! So, it's October, the weather has taken a quick turn in the past week but I'm still sunny in Lelly Jelly land.....or, at least, my card is.
You may remember the playday I mentioned back in July. I went to the home of another demo, my friend, Lesley (http://lesleyscraftroom.blogspot.co.uk/) along with some other lovely ladies, not forgetting my super friend Kim, also a demo (http://kimfeecrafter.blogspot.co.uk/) who drove me all the way into Kent for the day.
There were 6 of us in total and we all made a shoebox swap. If you don't know what that is then I'll tell you. Each person makes a card then gathers all the supplies and prepares enough packs for everyone attending to make the same card. The original idea is that it all fits into a shoebox. Well, I can tell you, sometimes we need to use a box from someone with extremely large feet!
I believe I've already shown you most of the cards, though I'll go and check, but not yet the one I have to share with you today.
The original is by Jan Dicks (her SU blog is having a makeover at the moment), here it is:
by Jan Dicks - Twinks stamping
She used the Flower Patch stamp set with matching dies to make this lovely card.
So, now to my take on this. As you can see it doesn't actually look as pretty!
Lelly Jelly's version!
This goes to show that even if you CASE something it doesn't always come out as an exact replica!
Despite this, we all had a fabuous day. Huge thanks to Lelly G for hosting, such fun too, to catch up with everyone!
