By The Tide & Rain or Shine

I made two cards for an organised Leadership Swap. Lyssa Zwolanek does a brilliant job of gathering 100+ Stampin' Up demonstrators and keeping us in line for this HUGE swap! Thank you, Lyssa!

Here are the 2 swap cards I made. This first one is a new set called 'By the Tide'. I love this set and got some great sample ideas from the display boards, and from this swap. It makes a wonderful masculine card.

Stamps : By the Tide, Netting (Background Stamp)
Ink : Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake
Cardstock : Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse
Accessories : Midnight Muse Ribbon, Linen Thread, 1/2 Pearls

And here's my other swap card using 'Rain or Shine'. I love the fresh, crisp look of this. I used some core'dinations pool party cardstsock for the clouds behind the brolly. A little bit of sanding gave GREAT added texture.

Stamps : Rain or Shine
Ink : Primrose Petals, Pool Party
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Primrose Petals, Pool Party core'dinations
Accessories : Primrose Petals Ribbon, Labels Collection Framelits, Oval Framelits, XL Oval Punch, Vine Street EF, Big Shot

Love your card with "Larry the Lobster". :-) I got the set, thinking I'd never use "Larry", but he makes quite a nice, masculine card, doesn't he? --Doris

Love that lobster card! I'm partial to masculine cards, and this is a great one!

So, now I need the netting stamp, too! This looks absolutely wonderful. I just got this set...and this would be one of the tougher images in my mind...but not for you!
PS did I send you the photo of Heather and you, yet?
