Swaps Remade!

So I am posting a few days later than I hoped...big surprise right? We were having Prom dress drama on Sunday. Tis almost that time of year here & this year I have two kids going. My oldest two, my twins, are both juniors so that is double the cost...Yay! (smile) But we now have ordered an awesome tuxedo & bought a beautiful dress (our 2nd one by the way - yes we took the 1st one back). I won't show you pictures of it yet because I am going to make a card in it's honor. It is melon mambo, basic black, basic gray & whisper white - sounds interesting right? Just wait till you see it. : )

Ok so here is today's stamping. My scrapbook event this past Saturday was a springtime/Easter theme & we used the Easter Blossom stamp set. I just love this stamp set...Do you want to hear something funny? At first I didn't think I like this set at all...Until I went to Leadership & saw all these cute things to do with it. So this week's posts are all going to be using the Easter Blossom stamp set.

Today the card that I remade was a swap I got at leadership (sorry I don't know from whom).

Then I was looking for a cute & fast card to send to a friend that needed a little pick me up, so I redid it in 2 different colors.

Here it is in the same original colors, I just changed the ribbon & did some sponging. So the base is pear pizzaz (sorry I know the pictures stink - see previous post for explaination). The I took soft suede & ran it through the Big Shot with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder & sponged the edges with soft suede ink. Then another layer of pear pizzazz, Then I took a piece of very vanilla & stamped the flower image in soft suede & more soft suede sponging. Then I used some of the crumb cake seam binding ribbon (if you don't have this ribbon in all available colors you should order them right now - love them). I then stamped the words in soft suede ink on very vanilla & punched them out with the decorative label punch then more sponging. I punched one piece of soft suede with the decorative label punch, cut it in 1/2 & glued it behind the very vanilla piece (with a little sponging around the outside). Then I popped it up on dimensionals above the ribbon.

Here is the same card just in different colors.

This time I used baja breeze cardstock & ribbon. I personally like it a lot like this. What do you think?

Thank you to whomever swapped this awesome card with me at Leadership. If you know please email me so I can give them credit.
