Tucson Swaps…

I hope you are enjoying seeing some of the swaps I received at the demo retreat in Tucson.  Swapping cards with other stampers is a great way to make new friends and to gain knowledge about different techniques, color combinations and uses of stamps sets.  I’m always amazed at the variety of the creations.

Here are two more swaps from Tucson I thought you might like…


What a happy color combination for this birthday!… card and it could be used for either gender…especially cute for kids of all ages.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.  This swap was created by Julie Freysinger from Grass Lake, Michigan.  You can check her sight at  Thanks for sharing Julie!


I just love this card…so clean and the color combination really pops.  Its hard to tell from looking at this photo, but the white top layer is up on dimensionals and the smaller banner is inset inside the larger banner.  Gives it an interesting perspective and I love the flowers popping out of the inset.  I definitely plan to share this with my Ink & Stamp 101 class.  I know they will love it.  This card was created by Patti Carbonell and even though she didn’t provide contact information on the back of her swap, I still wanted to share it.  Great card Patti!

I know you’ll be inspired by these cards I’ve picked to share.
