Stampin' Swap

I've been working on cards for an organized swap and in typical me fashion I am down to the wire to get them done. Work has been nutty and I've had a few other projects to work on as well, so these took a back seat. I'm almost there. One more element is missing, but I have to borrow the set to complete them so if it comes down to it they will suffice as is. =)

I am so happy to be a part of this swap. I was invited in after someone dropped out and from what I hear these are a bunch of super talented stampers... hope I can fill the big shoes!

window dressing

I've used one of the new hostess stamp sets from Stampin' Up called Window Dressing, along with the new In Colors (Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze). Ity Bitty backgrounds was used to make the "snowflakes" and I've dyed white gross grain ribbon with the Kiwi Kiss stamp pad. The tree was hand drawn for the little bird to sit on. A layer of acetate acts as the window glass and has "snow" dabbled on with a sponge and white staz-on ink. Lots of cutting, coloring and piecing but make a very eye-catching card.
