U Stamp Big Shot Swap Cards, Part 1

Just a quick post while I'm gone for a week or two on my summer vacation! I got these Big Shot swaps in the mail on Friday! I was part of a swap that was sponsored by U Stamp with Dawn and Friends. I was a guest designer in their group last Christmas. Now, I'm happy to participate in their swaps!

Check this photo out:

I never use the Bold Butterflies die but I love it for these two cards! The smaller card in the forefront used this die, sandwiching a small note card between. Then, she used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to make the smallest butterfly on the front. Adorable!

The back butterfly card is gorgeous in it's simplicity! Black is elegant as it is, but with a clean image, there's sometimes nothing more elegant!

Don't you love the bright birthday card?! It's so fun and summery ... and it uses almost all of our new incolors for 2011-2012! The card itself is Lucky Limeade, with an embossed Lucky Limeade layer on top. Then there's the Calypso Coral that's matted with Island Indigo. The sentiment letters are all colored in with the new markers. I figured out that the sentiment comes from the Bring On the Cake stamp set. Luckily for me, I just got this in the mail this week! It was one of the stamp sets that I chose as my free set based on my sales from Sale-a-bration this past year. I LOVE free stuff!! Oh yes, and there's one more smaller sentiment, also from the same stamp set, stamped on the Wisteria Wonder card stock.

That's all for me today! Tomorrow I'll have more swaps to show you!
