Woo Hoo Stampers Swap

My NY group meets on Saturday, October 18. 2014 I hate not being there but I have taken part in the swaps since I moved to NC almost 8 years ago.  The challenge this month was to use one of the thinlt cards the circle, label or snowflake from SU.  I have the label one and so I used it to create this card for the swap.
The open version is below.

Taylorsville Quarterly Meeting September 19-20, 2014

Last night was the beginning of the Taylorsville QM and we had a great time today we will be working on more projects and I can't wait.  These get togethers are so much fun.
  This is my shoebox swap card and what you can't see is the sparkle from the Dazzling details.
 This is the general swap card.  I just love this new stamp set Making Spirits Bright
The gift card swap is the other swap I signed up for and when you open this the inside slides up to present you with the gift card.
One of the contests I entered was Blast From the Past.  I used the retired Flowers of the Month stamp set.  The other contest I entered is the Christmas Card and that will be featured in my October card making class so I will show it to you then.

September Woo Hoo Stampers Swap

The theme for this swap was to use the Stampin Up Owl Punch but don't make an owl.  Challenging my first thought was to go with the tulips but as I was playing around my son told me it looked like the ghosts from the Pac-Man game so I came up with this card.  Put it on Daffodil Delight card because the machine in the arcades that were the game were yellow.

July Southern Belles Swap

This month's Southern Belle swap is a double pocket card made from an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of cardstock.  Great for putting in a gift tag and for my fellow demonstrators I added a Lottery scratch off.  Hope one of them is a big winner.

Shoebox Swap

The last shoebox swap that I did I didn't feel like making a card so I did a 3-D item.  Used a pencil as a stem created an area around it and then added a flower and a rhinestone.  I thought it came out really good.
