I did my swaps in various colors (this one is Pear Pizzazz) and with various Designer Series Papers (this is from the 2010-2012 In Color Paper Stack, page 186 of the IB&C).
This was the first card I made, using Pretty In Pink and Rose Red and the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (page 219 of the IB&C) instead of DSP. The dots made it too hard to attach the Lace Ribbon Border and I didn't like the 2 colors. I also decided it would be easier to cut out the frame rather than the oval. I have to see if the Oval Die is the right size so I could use the Big Shot to cut these out.
Here's a 3x3 card I made with some of hte pieces I was experimenting with. This is Rose Red and some discontinued DSP. The Thanks is from Thank You Kindly (page 168 of the IB&C).
For the Stamp-A-Stack, we used Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade. I'll be showing the rest of the cards each day this week- come back to check them out! And if you would like to join us for a Stamp-A-Stack, I have one each month, usually the 3rd Saturday. Check my calendar for exact dates and sign up info!
