Vintage Vogue/Card Swap

Posted by on Mar 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

This post will be a little longer today because I'd like to share with you the cards that were swapped at our Downline meeting last night.  I loved every card! 

This amazing card, made by Judith Glazier, won first place in our card swap contest.  She used the Emerging Color technique on glossy cardstock and the Vintage Vogue stamp set.  The picture just doesn't do justice to it–you've got to see it and touch it to appreciate the beauty of this card.  Great work, Jude!  I love it so much, I'll be teaching it at our Technique club next week.

This next card was our Workshop WOW presented by Jennifer Blain.  Love the glitter on this card–this is the Diamond Dust technique. Everyone got to make their own card like this.  We used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the hearts (from I Heart Heart stamp set) and made our own stencil to create the stem on the  shamrock.   What a dazzling card!  Don't you love it?

Our next card was made by Delphine Anderson.  She use the Embedded Embossing technique and the Square Lattice Embossing folder to create this cozy card–a perfect Get Well card for anyone under the weather.  The added yarn together with the embossing texture really make this look like a quilt.  I love all the detail on this card!

Our next card is an original by Tracy Chambers–talk about working with what you have?  She did it!  Look at the cupcake top!  Did you think it was made with the Cupcake punch?  Well, if you did, you're wrong.  Tracy used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch to create the cupcake top. She cut it in half with a scissor and a bit of a curve.  What a clever idea!  Also, notice that Tracy used markers to color the sentiment in two coordinating colors.  Cool!

The Elegant Lines background, the glittery icing on the cupcake, cherry button on top, and the toothpick stuck in the cup cake to hold the sentiment add great detail to this cute little 4 x 4 card.  Another great card!

The last card I'd like to share with you was made by Selina Manes.  The flower is stamped, colored, cut out and mounted on top of the Rose Red textured card stock with dimensionals.  The centre of the flower features one of our sparkling rhinestones.  This is another great card and so easy to make—I think I'll use this idea in one of my upcoming workshops.  This is an excellent way to feature some of our beautiful Designer Paper.
