St. Louis Regional's Swap Week 3

On March 23, 2013, I was lucky enough to attend the St. Louis Regional Stampin' Up! event where I swapped a few cards with many wonderful designers. This series of posts will showcase the cards I received. Not all cards were signed by their designer - so unfortunately credit couldn't be given every time. When I am able to, the designer is given credit. Every card I received will be featured -they were all equally wonderful! Without further ado - here are my swaps for this week:

Week 3 in the St. Louis Regional's Swap Series brings you not one, not two, but three unique swaps! While many swaps were the standard sized card front - these were different. If you see me at an event - just know that I love breaking from the norm - I will swap non-standard sizes for whatever swaps I bring. 

Dresser Front by Kathy Strobl

This gorgeous card element was created by Kathy Strobl. Wouldn't this look adorable on a baby shower card for a little girl! She used a couple shades of pink card stock - my best guess is Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette - but I may be wrong! Identifying the various colors of Stampin' Up! card stock is something I know I will get better at it eventually. She used brads to create the pulls for the drawers. Lastly, she used two punches to accent the piece to give it that "dresser" look. The decorative label was used at the bottom and the scalloped flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack was used to accent the drawer pulls.  Such a cute element to add to any card! I love the creativity it took to design such a piece.

Products Used:
  • Pink Pirouette Card Stock #111351
  • Pretty In Pink Card Stock #100459
  • So Saffron Card Stock #105118
  • 3/16" Subtles Brads Collection - Pretty In Pink ones #119738

Snowbuddy Stick by unknown

This cute little tongue depressor was decorated with one of my favorite stamp sets - the Snow Much Fun stamp set. I couldn't resist when I saw it! It's adorable and would look so cute sticking out of a poinsettia plant during the holidays!

  • Snow Much Fun stamp set (w)#122560 or (c)#122562
  • Whisper White card stock #100730

Just For You Note Card - by unknown

This cute note card was created using the Big Shot and some really cool dies. I love the color combination - Rich Razzleberry and Sahara Sand.  Rich Razzleberry is one of my favorite colors of all time!  The list in front of the card on the photo above was included with the card but unfortunately the designer didn't sign her name to it or the card. These little 3x3 cards make a perfect addition to a gift - use the crop-o-dile to punch a hole in the corner and tie it on with some bakers twine! What a great way to personalize a gift!
