Hello fellow crafters, Sean here to share with you the gorgeous cards that were the most appreciated cards and winners from our card swaps at our Milwaukee, Orlando, Puyallup and St. Paul Stamp & Scrapbook Expo shows! It’s amazing to me how truly talented and creative you all are, I’m in awe.
Milwaukee, WI Show:
The first card in Milwaukee was made by Donna. This is an absolutely gorgeous birthday card! She used a beautiful die cut as a matting and embossed each flower by hand. It took her over 50 hours to complete these cards and man does it show!! This card is stunning!! Amazing job Donna!!
The second card in Milwaukee was made by Tammy. This gorgeous card could be used as a wedding card or even an anniversary card. I just LOVE the silhouette of the couple and I’m a fanatic for black and white cards! I just think they are soo elegant!! Especially for wedding/anniversary cards! Fabulous job Tammy!!
Orlando, FL Show:
The first card at the Orlando card swap was made by Denise Leonard. Denise is total girly girl and is inspired by all things girly! This beautiful card is a shaker card with little gold hearts inside the nail polish bottle and you can turn the dial on the right and change the color of the nail polish!! I mean WOW!!! The sentiment on the front reads “Mani Thanks”! How cute is this card!! Fantastic job Denise!!
The next card swap winner in Orlando was Sarah. Sarah is 9 years old and is already making some stunning work!! Sarah is inspired by Disney Princess’ and her Ariel doll, I have to mention this is also Sarah’s very first card! How absolutely gorgeous is this?!? There is sooo much detail in this beautiful card and Sarah is an amazing colorist! WOW!!! Great job Sarah!!! I can not wait to see next years card!!
Puyallup, WA Show:
The first card from the Puyallup card swap was made by Lynn Hoth from Seaside, Oregon. Lynn is a medical professional and crafts to relax and relieve stress. I hate to say it but if this is what she creates being stressed, I hope she says stressed!! Lol! This is a beautiful Sea inspired card with tons of detail!! The inside of the card features a beautiful sea horse tag and a waterfall complete with miniature star fish! How amazing is this!?! Fantastic job Lynn!
The next card from the Puyallup swap was made by Barry Snarr. This is a stunning card that can be given for a ton of occasions. Barry has been a paper crafter for about 15 years and is in love with doing origami! For the gold background he re purposed an envelope from a co-workers holiday invitation and used that as his inspiration continuing the gold into the dress. This is an absolutely stunning card, congrats Barry!!
St. Paul. MN Show:
The first card from the St. Paul card swap was made by Sherry McNeely of Woodbury, MN. The background is pan pastels and she used Lavinia Stamps with glitter paint on the wings and a sparkle silk splattered background. How magical is this card!?! The inside sentiment reads “It’s your time to shine”! There are soo many beautiful techniques used to make this card, congrats Sherry!!
The next card from the St. Paul swap was made by Hannah Wielinski of Stratford, WI. This super cute card was made by adding Ben Oliver color burst to bubble solution and blowing bubbles onto cardstock! WOW!! Then she used Nuvo drops to make a bubble trail from the bunny blowing bubbles. I just love her coloring! What a fantastic card Hannah, congratulations!!
