Swap til You Drop!

One of the most fun things about
Stampin' Up!'s convention
is the CARD SWAPS!
It's fun when stampers think everything
here on my blog was all my idea.
But I have to be honest with you...
most of my cards are either ideas that have been
meshed from other samples
or ones I have created from ideas of a swapped card.
I will always let you know if I have
CASEd (Copy And Share Everything)
a card or if the card was a swapped card.
If s post notes nothing of the original stamper,
then it was my original idea.

These next several card samples were all
swapped cards from convention.
Please forgive me for not mentioning the
original stamper who made each card.
These were a few of my favs
that were swapped by my convention roomies.
To see these amazing samples up close and personal
as well as all of the other amazing samples I brought home,
join us at the next Stamp Club and CAMP
on Sunday, August 28th beginning at 2:00pm
and going through 6:30pm.
See the side bar here on Always Stampin' for more details.

Would you look at that?!
The Ornament Punch... upside down!

Quite possibly my absolute fav!!!
The "Trendy Trees" stamp set
was used to create the lollipop.
The sun uses the Boho Blossoms Punch
while the rainbow uses the Small Oval Punch
as well as the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.
How clever!!!

LOVE this technique
which uses the Square Lattice Die
and the Big Shot Machine!

Baby Wipe Techinque or Sponging?
To stamp or not to stamp...
that's a stupid question.
he he he...

Check this out!
The ice cream is created by punching a scallop circle
and then punching the scallop circle piece
with the 3/4" circle punch.
The cone was created by using the
Square Lattice Die and the Big Shot Machine.
It just doesn't get any cuter that this! 

Sucker sticks.
The pennents use sucker sticks!
How fun!

Here is that same technique
using the Square Lattice Die and
the Big Shot Machine.
It's such a classic look...
and you KNOW it's quite easy to create!
If it weren't, I wouldn't have received
so many samples using this very technique!

And here it is AGAIN!
It's so dramatic on this sample because
of the little pieces of different
Designer Series Paper.
It looks like a warm and cozy quilt!

And here we are with the Ornament Punch again!
SO cute!!!

Now I love the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch
even MORE than I already did!
I LOVE this cross sample!
I am just blown away at the creativity in these cards!

Here is one my roomie made at a party she attended.
How lovely is this?!

Some people might wonder
"What in the world would you use this card for?!"
Know anyone with breast cancer?
Your greeting might read
"I'm here to show my support."
or perhaps you've experienced breast cancer
and really appreciated all the help you received...
your card might read
"Your support meant the world to me!"
think anniversary...
bridal shower...
I'm sorry for being such a boob (he he he...)

The possibilities are endless!
Hope you've enjoyed the samples.
Join us at Stamp Club to enjoy them for real.
They are much better in real life!
Bring your camera and feel free to take photos
while you're here... that's one of the fun things about
Stamp Club and Stamp CAMP.
Come join the fun!
Be blessed!
