Fun Cards

I thought I’d start sharing the swaps with some fun cards.  Since I don’t have children, I rarely buy stamp sets that would appeal to kids.  However, at convention all the demonstrators received the Moving Forward stamp set (pg 209 of the annual catalog.)  That stamp set was never on my wish list, but now that I have used it, I think it’s pretty cute.  The best part of purchasing that set is that Stampin’ Up donates $3 of the sale of each set to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. 


I used the little bicycle from the set to make a card for a friend.  I think it’s cute with the little flowers hanging out of the basket on the back of the bicycle.  The following cards are ones I received as swaps: 




In addition to that stamp set, I also received some cute kid-friendly cards.  This one uses the new Blast Off stamp set (pg 65.) 


And I’ll be honest, I never thought I’d love a card made with the Make a Monster set on page 64, but I think this card is stinkin’ cute.  Now I’m thinking I could get this set to use for Halloween cards.  Unfortunately my reflection in the plastic adds yet another monster to the card.  Smile with tongue out 


And, last, but not least, here’s a really pretty (& sparkly) card I made made with the Quinceañera set (item #129750) during Hispanic Night with Sandra Manwill.  (Did you know I sold stamps in both Spanish and French?  Stampin’ Up even has a catalog of stamp sets just in Spanish!) This stamp set is great for making invitations for that all-important event, but I think it’s so versatile it could be used for other occasions too. 


That’s all for today.  Come back to see some more swaps!

Happy Stampin-

  1. Those are super cute stamps and I love the fact that a portion of the sales goes to Ronald McDonald House. That is one of my favorite charities.
