Black & White Convention Swaps

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing some of the Black and White cards that I received from my Convention swaps. Black and White cards are always classic and a great way to start stamping since it doesn’t require a lot of supplies.

Traveler Convention swap 2014

This card was made using the Traveler stamp set, one of my favorites! I love the way that Cheryl used the Just Sayin’ stamp set to add the sentiment – how about you? It adds a taste of contemporary to these classic sets.

Want to see my Black & White card? I used the Traveler stamp set too – click HERE to see my swap.

Need a clean and simple card? Need a pop of color for your project? Think about our Washi Tape – You’ll get 3 designs in each package for just $4.95, so it’s a great deal , which means you can get them all!

Here is a clean and simple card that I made recently using our Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape and the Just Sayin’ bundle (134819/134820).  Just Sayin’ is one of those great all occasion sets for year round use. And did you know you can use one of the framelits to create clouds? Cool huh?

Retro Fresh Washi Tape and Just Sayin'

This card was easy to make since the Washi Tape pretty much does all the work for you. Think of Washi Tape the same way you think of your Designer Series Paper – it works together or stands alone. And you don’t need any adhesive to attach it – so it is fast!

It’s a Perfect Pennants Valentine’s Day

Wow, can you believe it’s already Valentine’s Day? This week has really flown by with all the snow excitement here in North Georgia. But since we can’t forget our loved ones and Valentine’s Day I thought I would share with you some of the great swaps I got during Leadership with a “love” theme.

This first card was one of my shoebox swaps at Leadership and I really like the way Kathy used all the different textures – it makes it a very interesting card even though it only uses 3 basic colors.

Perfect Pennants Leadership Swap 2014

This card uses a lot of great products from the new Occasions Catalog including our Perfect Pennants stamp set (133227/133230),  Arrows Embossing Folder (132187), and Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (132996).

Do you recognize the image from the hearts on the banner? Well it is our single stamp Flowerful Heart (134617) that is only available through today.

Leslie gave me this cute little treat using our Angled Tag Topper Punch (133323) and the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set (133200/133203) and Word Bubbles Framelits Dies (132968).

Just Sayin' Leadership swap 3d

Isn’t it cute? And don’t forget you can get these two fun items in a bundle (134819/134820) and save15%!

And this last card is from Julie and is just too cute I thought. It uses our In With You stamp set, Monstermaniacs (134972/134969).

Monstermaniacs Leadership Swap 2014

Don’t you love the little googlie eye? And the bling added with our Red Glimmer Paper? The hearts were created using our Owl Builder Punch and Small Heart Punches. And can you guess the background texture on the Whisper White card stock? If you guess our exclusive Sale-a-Bration Embossing Folder, Decorative Dots – you’re right! This has been a real favorite and is quickly becoming a must have.

Don’t forget you can get your own exclusive Sale-a-bration items when you purchase $50 in product. You can click HERE for more information about Sale-a-bration.
