Sale-a-Bration Simply Wonderful Swap Card

I've got another fun swap card to share with you today!  This adorable card was created by Janet and it, like yesterday's post, also uses the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  Did you know that Stampin' Up!'s designer papers are all double-sided?  The hardest part is trying to decide which side of the paper to use (I usually like both and have a hard time sticking one side down!).  :)

Janet's card also uses the Petal Potpourri stamp set (for the flower) and the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  When you order these two products in a bundle (using the bundled item number), you'll save 15%!  (Love it when Stampin' Up! bundles products together!)

The sentiment "to a great friend" comes from the Simply Wonderful stamp set.  Choose this set for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with your order of $50 or more.  There are even more FREE products to choose from (see the Sale-a-Bration catalog) as well as other ways to earn them for FREE!  See how here!  Get all the details about Sale-a-Bration here.

The ribbon and button are also from Sale-a-Bration!  The Best Year Ever Accessory Pack includes 3 spools of ribbon (5 yards each in Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral) as well as 24 designer buttons in the same colors!  Again, it's FREE with your minimum order!  The hard part is deciding which FREE item to pick!  (Or place your order of $100 and choose them both!)

You are Amazing - Painted Petals Stamp Set

I love card swaps!  Have you ever participated in a swap before?  Swapping is pretty simply - each person creates a certain number of one style of card.  Then, we (the Cowtown Crafters) get together, and swap the cards we made.  Each participant leaves with a wide variety of fun card ideas!

This week, I've got lots of swaps to share with you!  The Cowtown Crafters are one crafty bunch of ladies and we love to swap!  (You may even notice a few of the swap cards become what we make during my monthly stamp classes.  I just love all the ideas!)

This first card was created by Erica.  Erica used a new stamp set from the Occasions Catalog (view the pdf here) called Painted Petals.  This is such a fun and versatile set.

The sentiment is just one of three included in the set.  Too cute!

This second card also using Painted Petals was created by Cindy.  She also incorporated the coordinating paper called Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I love the bright colors in the card. 

I love it when stampers use the same stamp set and come up with completely different cards!

Are you ready to give swapping a try?  It's just one of the many benefits of being a Cowtown Crafter!  Whether your near or far, you can participate once your a Cowtown Crafter!

Kindness You Show - Lotus Blossom Card

I'm amazed that no matter how many cards I see (or stamp) with the Lotus Blossom stamp set, each stamped flower turns out so unique!  I guess it's just like real flowers.  Even the same type of flower in a garden looks the same from a distance but when you look more closely, there are unique qualities to each one!  (Want to see this set in action?  Check out my video tutorial with some handy tips and tricks for using this set.)

Today's Lotus Blossom card was created by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Terri.  And, I have to say that any card that uses Blackberry Bliss just makes me happy!  What is it about this color that I like so much?

With every $50 purchase, you get to choose one FREE product from the Sale-a-Bration catalog
The Lotus Blossom stamp set is one of those FREE choices!  What will you choose today?
