The latest card class, party invitations and my latest swap!!!

First up is a monochromatic card. This is what first got me hooked on Stampin' Up! products. I LOVE the fact that the inks match the paper perfectly! Stampers had a choice of a lighter purple, Perfect Plum, or a darker purple, Elegant Eggplant, to use. Don't you love the dotted textured white paper? We actually made it by texturing the cardstock with the Big Shot!

Next, we stamped some lovely flowers using the newest clear stamp set, I really like the way you can easily see how to place the image perfectly.

Next, we made a "topiary" looking card with a red scallop and heart accent.

And then, we made this cute "Got Birthday?" card with matching icing and scallop circle. And for an added touch, a nice flower attached with a brad.

Here is also an invitation and thank you card that I made for a co-worker's daughter's 2nd birthday party. What do you think?

And finally, I wanted to share what my swap looked like. I meet quarterly with my fellow demonstrators and we all make multiples of a card and then swap with each other. At the end of the day, you go home with a whole variety of everyone's cards. It's a great way to get ideas!
Well, hope you enjoyed the cards and maybe you can join me the next time, just let me know if you are interested!

Thanks for checking in!
