This card was one from my 10 for $20 class. It only uses white cardstock. Really! After stamping the trees in Basic Black, I tore the bottom of that piece of cardstock, and then sponged Soft Sky ink in the center and added Island Indigo around the outside edges. The base of the card is our new Thick Whisper White cardstock.
This card was one I saw on display at a recent Creative Convention. Doesn't it make you think of a quiet, starry night?
I love the use of Blackberry Bliss on this card by Yvette. The bottom is some of of our Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper with a little bit of the Winter Wonderland Designer Washi Tape.
This card was made by stamping on the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It's such a cool technique! I took the Soft Sky ink pad and applied it to the embossing folder (the side where the trees are indented). Then the Wonderland trees were inked with Mossy Meadow and stamped ON the embossing folder over the Soft Sky ink. The Whisper White cardstock was then placed in the embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. This is the result! Isn't it cool?

If you don't have the Bow Builder punch yet, this is a perfect time to get one! It makes such great mini bows out of cardstock. Here are a couple of projects that use that punch:
Here are a few of the swap cards from the recent Upscale Swap group.
Cindy Heibel - Acorny Thank You, Vintage Leaves
Beth Rush - Lighthearted Leaves
Candy Leggett - Lighthearted Leaves
Anita Ferre' - Happy Scenes, Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies
Don't you love the paper Anita used on this card? It's some of our Envelope Paper (pg 149 Idea Book & Catalog) and makes this card look like you're looking out of a dining room window!

I'm not a big Halloween person... although I do love all of the fun-sized chocolate that's available this time of year! So I don't usually purchase stamp sets that are exclusive to Halloween. But when I saw the adorable owl in the Howl-o-ween Treat set, I knew I had to get it. My daughter loves anything owl, and so I tend to look for cute owl items. I find it hard to resist. Sort of like resisting chocolate...
The card above was made by one of my stamp clubs. The rest were from a display made by Dawn Bourgette at the Creative Convention I attended a month ago. ALL of these cards feature images from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set.
Even the spider in this set is cute!
And here's that adorable owl pretending he's a bat...
Until next time...

I'm back with more swap cards to share. We're sharing a cold bug here at the Stenstrom household. I'm on the mend, but I think Jerry is coming down with it. I feel bad for him...
The first three cards are all made with the same stamp set and thinlits, but all look so different.
