I hope you have had fun following me on our Alaskan Cruise Adventure this week! I've been posting from Seattle and the Cruise ship whenever I can!! You can see those posts HERE.
While we are on the ship, one of the Stampin' UP! activities is a card swap. I wanted to share the card I made, and I hope you like it! It features the Healing Hugs stamp set and several other fun Stampin' UP! products!
I really love the new Delicate Lace edgelits from Stampin' UP!.. that's what I used for the lovely white lacy detail on these cards. You can read more about them HERE.
Other products I incorporated into my Cruise Swap Cards are:
Petal Promenade designer paper (2" x 4" piece)
Thanks for all you do image from the Friendly Expressions set stamped in Grapefruit Grove on a die cut Stitched Shape oval
Calypso Coral ombre ribbon
ALL of these Stampin' Up! products are available in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this post.
When I made multiples of a card (which is almost always), I die cut, score, stamp, and fussy cut everything I need first, then assemble.
If you'd like more info about how I colored the roses and leaves from the Healing Hugs stamp set, Watch This Video!
I hope you enjoyed a look at several of the beautiful Stampin' Up! swap cards I received at the April OnStage event in Las Vegas! Today I am sharing several more gorgeous cards with you that I received that day!

I love to stamp cards and take them to Stampin' UP! events. I created THIS CARD to take to the April 2018 Stampin' Up! OnStage demonstrator event and I swapped cards with about 75 demonstrators. Below I am sharing some of them with you today! And check back for the next 2 days.. I have more cards to share with you!

If you ever have to make a LOT of cards, like the 100 Petal Palette cards I made for the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Las Vegas, you might enjoy the tips I have for you today, including the video!!
I created a top fold card with Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4" x 8-3/4" and scored at 5-1/2". Then added the 3"x4" piece of Petal Passion designer paper to the top section. The Petal Palette flowers are stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White and colored with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sponge daubers. See the whole process in my VIDEO BELOW!
Swap Making Process:
I like to cut and score all my cardstock and designer paper first
Die cut framelits next
I know you've seen me stamp and color these Petal Palette flowers with Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends markers and even Brusho Colour Crystals, but when making 100 cards I needed this to be quick.. so I chose to use the Sponge Daubers!
The Petal Palette stamp set and matching framelit dies are available for a limited time at a 10% bundle discount!! Be sure to check that out here!!
If you'd like to watch my stamping process for making these Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap cards featuring the Petal Palette stamp set, see the video below!
Above: 2 alternate designs using the same products.. a side fold version layered with several cut out flower images, (right), and a version with a layer of colored Petal Passion Designer paper inside, and a Whisper White layer over that to write on.
I added the clear and glitter epoxy shapes to the roses to look like dew drops. You'll find these on page 33 in the 2018 Occasions catalog #145632
The Happy Birthday greeting is found in the Beautiful Day stamp set, pg 26 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.
I had fun creating this stamped kitty note card for a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group / Luvly Stampers group swap! I used my sweet Foxy Friends stamp set and the lovely Affectionately Yours designer paper.
One thing that is so striking about this Affectionately Yours paper is the copper foil accents on 2 of the sheets. Do you see the pretty shimmery copper embossing on the lower 1/2 of the card?
I combined images from the Thoughtful Banners and Perfectly Wrapped stamp sets to stamp "love to you" and used the Heart Border punch to punch out Watermelon Wonder hearts. They are easily applied to the card with Multipurpose glue or the Fine Tip glue pen.
The final accent on my Crumb Cake Note Card is the Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.. so pretty! And it ties knots and bows like a dream!
This fun Foxy Friends stamp set can create so many different animals!! Fox, Racoon, Kitty, Skunk, Reindeer.. what else do you see?
On my recent Blog Candy give away where I asked for your favorite new designer paper, I believe this Affectionately Yours paper was the 2nd favorite (behind Floral Boutique).
Please enjoy my Spring Heart & Flower Framed Collage!!
This fun project was a "swap" I did with my Luv 2 Stamp Group – about a dozen of us each made 9 "squares" measuring 3"x3" and everyone sent them to me. I "swapped" them and sent each person back 9 squares. Kind of fun, because everyone got 9 different squares! 🙂
I created a fun spring home decor collage frame with my squares!
Our Instructions for the swap: All squares needed to use either a heart/Valentine or flower theme from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. Each square needed to measure 3×3 and needed to be on Blushing Bride cardstock. This ensures that they all look great in a collage.
I used a 12"x 12" white frame from a craft store, and I tried out my framed collage sampler on 3 different backgrounds.. all of the paper backgrounds are from the Birthday Bouquet designer paper pack.. which one do you like best?
