Julie is a friend of mine. So I was surprised to see that she was part of the same swap but not surprised by the creativity and quality of the card (loved it Julie). You can also find her blog located in my favorites.

This is a standard size card that was cut in chocolate chip. I matted this card using the Kraft Manchester DSP. My trees were stamped onto Very Vanilla using Chocolate Chip and Mellow Moss for the colors.I then matted my trees onto Brocade Blue, Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip. I cut a strip of Chocolate Chip and scalloped the edge with the eyelet scallop edge punch and tied Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon around it. I stamped my thanks so much sentiment on Very Vanilla in Mellow moss and punched it with the Large Oval punch. I also punched the Scallop Oval in Chocolate chip to matte. Before popping up my sentiment with dimensionals I added a couple pewter brads. I hope that the participants that received my swap enjoy it. Check back tomorrow I just might have a participant from the swap to share.

The base of this card is Bashful Blue. All of the DSP used on this card is Washington Apple I thought that it was a nice bright and summery colors to use for this card. I used Bashful Blue and the stripes from the Washington Apple DSP to create the top note. The ribbon used is the stripped So Saffron. The corner rounder was used to round all of the edges. I stamped the "cheers to you" in Riding Hood Red and punched it with the 1 1/4 circle punch and the 1 3/8 circle punch to matte. My cocktail was stamped in Going Gray to give it a softer look and I colored it in using blender pens. I added a bit of glitter to the glass and crystal effects to the fruit slice however it is a bit hard to tell in the pictures. I had fun with this card and I'm happy with the way that it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for more Miss May's Swappers.

I have a cousin that just moved out of her parents house and moved into a new home. It's such a fun and exciting chapter in a persons life when they take the next step onto new responsibilities, it can also be a bit scary all at the same time. So I thought I would make her a Congrats/Housewarming card.

Today I was playing around with my rub~ons which I absolutely love. I must say that they are really easy to work with and look great too. I made a 3x3 card today, these are great to add to a gift, whether it be for a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday, etc. SU! also sells envelopes that fit perfect for this size card. Today I used the Summer Love rub~ons and applied it to 3M transparency film. Tip:I used glue dots to hold this card together so that it would have a cleaner look. On the inside of the card I lined it with the Walk in the Park DSP that can be found in the mini occasions catalog. Adding a bit of Very Vanilla CS to the center so that my image would be better seen. I used the corner rounder punch to round all the edges and a bit of very vanilla taffeta ribbon to complete. This made for a quick and cute card. I am really happy with the way it came out. Thanks for stopping by.
