OnStage Local: Minneapolis Swaps

I love swapping, well except for the creating a ton of one card.  Really, I love getting lots of cards not designed by me using stamp sets I don’t own with a style I don’t have.  Love it!

This is the card I used for my swap and you can see all about it on this post.  As a bonus, my family won’t be all getting the same card for their birthdays.  🙂

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! Cool Treats

This was my favorite swap and it’s not a card.  I love that she went through the effort to do all of these charms.  I think I’ll be attaching this to my purse.  🙂

Swimming Fish and Father’s Day Tools

I really love the monthly Facebook meetings that my 2nd upline Rachel Tessman does.  They are so much fun and she sends out great make & takes for us to do.  This is what I created this month.

I didn’t have the framelits to cut out the tools, so I just did it by hand.  I used the blender pens and my ink pads to color in the tools.

Stampin’ Dimensionals

 

We created a mask for the fish (since Rachel sent it to us stamped) and sponged around it with Mint Macaron and then colored in the stripes on the fish and the bubbles using a blender pen and the Mint Macaron ink pad.  Then you punch out the circle and attach it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
